92-93 GSXR 600 (USA) Water Cooled.
91-92 GSXR 750 (USA) Oil Cooled.
92 GSXR 750 (Canadian) Water Cooled.
93 GSXR 750 (USA) Water Cooled.

These are all Showa's and as far as the cartridge is concerned they should all be the same as long as the valve is being replaced with the Race Tech Gold Valve.

The 94-95 GSXR 750 used Showa Forks but I believe the internals are different as well as the diameter of the slider is smaller (41mm vs 43mm).

The 91-98 GSXR 1100 used Kayaba forks.

Rotors

Interchangable Rotors

Slotted Rotors
92-93 GSXR 600 W
91-93 GSXR 750 W
89-98 GSXR 1100 W

Drilled Rotors
88-90 GSXR 750
94-95 GSXR 750 W

Possible matches..... these use 310mm diameter rotors and 3/4" offsets but they are listed with different part numbers by aftermarket companies..... not sure of the differences so buy at your own risk.

94-98 RF900
01-05 Bandit 1200

Okay well this thread will be a how to/write up on converting our watercooled guage to 2001+ guages.
with pictures.. yes folks pictures lol.

Things you will need.
Gauges 40-200$ ( i paid 40 with scuffed clear cover been polished out however)

speedo sensor 30-60$ shipped
SPEED SENSOR BOLT no more than 15$ ( ebay jmrmotorsports had them)
aluminum or other suitable material 3x8 for bracket and 1 2x3 piece.
1. 2 inch flat washer small hole you'll enlarge later.

4 bolts with 2-4 matching nuts
2 5/8's or bigger spacers about 1/4 long.
( i used the fairing washer things looks like this =| ( had extra layin around)
1. expired bic pen or equivelent. ( dont ask yet)
rubber grommets/nuts from existing guages.
2 bolts for the above nuts. 1 inch long abouts.



this is picture with it mounted, front plate is off due to me polishing it up
first up is the bracket. This mounts on existing stay only slight modification to the original bracket is to bend it downwards towards headlights ( this is for master cycl could hit it on full left steering lock, usually with aftermarket clipons.



okay picture is the bracket, you dont need to make the fancy curves and whatnot well you do on the top part. picture is how it should be mounted. the 2 large holes are for the new gauges to mount to via push in rubber grommets.
The top most holes ( where black lines are ) is about stock setupup on mounting.
the second set of holes ( bottom pair of the black lined ones) is to push guages closer upward towards windshield/headlights about 3/4 of an inch. this is to clear aftermarket clip ons mounted below triple clamp. picture should be to scale in photoshop view as 110% for true scale. its about 6x3.
So you can print this and cut out/template.

Carb Removal

About the carbs. Pull the seats and rear plastics off,remove the airbox cover,loosen the 4 airbox boot screws and pull the airbox back towrds the rear of the bike,the back of the carbs should be exposed now,Then loosen the 4 screws holding the carbs to the inlet boots,pull the carbs back and slide them out to the right of the chassis.Remember to drain them as the float bowls are full of gas.. unless you want a small fuel bath.If possible let the bike sit in the sun with the tank off an hour or so before removal,this will make the rubber boots more flexable and make life a bit easier on you

1100 Wheelie Wire

If you are painstaking about it, you can use a scribe or icepick kinda tool and remove one of the connectors from the plastic terminal-block that both wires go into - if the one you remove renders your neutral-light ineffective, then you got the wrong one and need to put it back and remove the other one.

It didn't really make any noticeable difference on mine. )

CLICK ON THE PIC TO ENLARGE

Step one locate the Wheelie wire (Ether Pink or Red/Black, Red arrow in pic) and the neutral wire (Blue, yellow arrow in pic)



Step 2 disconect the wheelie wire



Step 3 enjoy

94-95 are totally different from the others:
They use 43-U (43mm) bodies : Both forks are exactly the same except that the 94's are blue anodized; they both use 38mm springs, rated stock at .800 kg/mm
