Re: Gsx-R750 86 Project

I founded one busted piston!
In other words I need a piston set and cylinder honing.
As Iím new in the Gixxer world, I appreciate if you give me your opinion about piston brands Wiseco, JE, oem etc....
Regards
Jan

Youíre right, the front & rear in the photo is from a Zxr6.
I wonít use the Xzr6 swing, it has correct distance between the fixing bolts.
The problem is with the shock absorber, that wonít fit without making changes at bolt-plates at chassis.
Therefore and because I donít like how itís looks I will search for a more classic unit like the one from the Gsxr 1100.
The good thing with the Zxr6 front end is that itís just bolt on, being a good surprise, just plug and play...

I don't think this is the place to ask this question. This is someone's thread in regards to a rebuild project they're doing. IT would be best to open a new thread for that question in the appropriate forum section

Re: Gsx-R750 86 Project

Everything dosent come easy with old bikes and this one isnít a exception.
Normally when bolts get stuck they came out with a little bit of heat but not always Iím afraid 😟
This is the small details that takes hours to fix sometimes
