It will be the same as the 2012, no doubt. If nothing drastically changes in 2014, I'd wait another year or two years lol. But who am I?

I looked at a Ducati Streetfighter 1098 and was going to look at the S1RR. I had been looking at used bikes for about a year and then decided new in about Jan/Feb.

And here is my point. The Ducati only would have cost me $20 a month in full coverage. I couldn't believe it. I almost just went on a whim and bought it. But then I started looking into service. Every 7500 miles was a $1-1.2k visit to the dealer.

The S1 I debated about but then started thinking about owning a German vehicle out of warranty. They can be unaffordable. Whether by the cost of maintenance or piece of mind.

Just my two cents and it's a dime a dozen. If I made $100k a year, I'd be on one.

Re: 2013 gsxr 1000

Man I don't know how they are going to survive in racing if they wait until 2015 to update the bike. I mean it's not doing well in WSB or AMA, I don't know about BSB or others. It's just long in the tooth and the onlyreason why they have sold so well now is because of the zero percent they were offering a few years ago.

Have you looked at the entry list for this weekend's race? What bike do you see most represented on the grid?

The Tyco Suzuki is up there in BSB, the the rules changed this year so everyone has a controlled ECU. The Beemer is not doing that well.
The Crescent Fixi Suzuki is getting better in WSB, I've seen the bikes on the dyno, they are making good power. It's the budget that puts them behind and the electronics.......
BMW budget is 6 times more, the Aprilla gets a brand new engine at every meeting.
More important is the fact that it is Crescents first year in WSB and they have not raced at most of the tracks before. They will come back stronger next year. No one makes a Suzuki go faster!

The Tyco Suzuki is up there in BSB but a) is anyone checking whether they slipped the 2011 engine in by accident and b) BSB conveniently forgot to adjust the rev limit down to match the reduction for the 2012 bike so it's still at 2011 figures. Oops!

The Crescent bike is now back to it's 2011 power as Yoshimura have been through a very public learning curve with building SuperBike engines and are now letting Crescent do some of the work.

P.S. Aprilia get through more than one brand new engine every WSB round.

Re: 2013 gsxr 1000

I have ridden most of the 2012 liter bikes. Strictly as a street bike, the current GSXR 1000 is as good as anything out there. Now if your doing 9/10th runs down in Mexico, perhaps not, but hitting the twisties, cruising, anything in between, even track days, I liked the 2012 GSXR 1000 a lot better then the ZX-10. The ZX-10 has a way too tall first gear and seems to make less power until about 9000 RPM. I really liked the Aprillia RSV4 as it seemed very light, very solid and fast response from the chassis, probably my choice if price was not a factor. The KTM was another bike I liked a lot. They say it's down on power? Not at anything other then top end, because low and mid range on that bike is huge, feels much stronger then the ZX-10. The problem with the KTM was the transmission, clunky, the bike felt solid but overall was missing the smooth controls of the others, like the fit & finish was a bit outdated.

Another bike I really liked was the Triumph 675R. It was like everything that makes the R6 such a great bike, but with everything wrong with the R6 fixed. Like an R6 with the motor from the GSXR 750, but no weight gain

Re: 2013 gsxr 1000

A superbike is very diferent from a normal bike....

I made some moods to my K5 and other from the top end that the zx10r and S1000r has on me, and of course the ABS.... I will wait for the 2015 or get a zx10r.

My friend has a zx10r with exhaust filter and reflash and eats for lunch s1000r with similar moods.

Do they still blow up like the K9-11's or did they resolve those issues with the crank?

Re: 2013 gsxr 1000

Karns,
the zx10r will have few more ponies up top also put a good headwork on a zx10r and some parts and will be a monster...

its a fact the zx10r is a more modern powerplant.

Re: 2013 gsxr 1000

dont disagree with you up top but the gsxr still makes 12-15 more hp/ 8-10ftlb more torque even stock up to 10k rpm but with cams (no head work) it is the exact same up top but still destroys the 10r and the bmw up to 10k. witch makes it way more fun to ride. im also comparing a flashed 10r w/exhaust and a bmw w/exhaust.

i have not personaly seen a crank faliure on the 09-11 only read about 6-8 posts about it. i havent completed any bottom end work on a 12 so i cant say if the oil/crank system is any different. i have talked in detail to some folks in the know at suzuki/yosh. there feeling is there is no "issue". they told me there was a few "isolated" racing incidents on modified motors. that leads me to belive that. they dont feel the need to change the system the way it is delivered to the consumer.

Re: 2013 gsxr 1000

Karn.... I disapear a BMW but when you get in those 270km/h + races here those bmw come in the rear mirror closing on....

not changing the subject since I know most of the people dont use those 10k rpms up....

I realy think suzuki should do 2 things at least.... get better cams and ABS and the bike will be fenomenal....
with 10hp more up to 10k and abs will destroy all the magazines reviews... put a full exhaust and a bazzaz TC and ride....

TB? Throttle Body?

If I added only Cams, Air Filter, and Exhaust, would I need a piggyback ECU system and Adjustable Cam Gears?

What do you think Karns? I never PM'd that question and have been thinking about it for a few days.
