1992 6/11 build

OK guys, well I have been on the hunt for a 92 GSXR 600w for a couple years now. I bought one new off the showroom floor in 93 as a leftover and logged over 32k miles on it. It was a great fun bike for a number of years. About 2 years ago I found a set of NOS side panels for a bargain at a swap meet and the bug was planted again! I loved that red/white color scheme, and wanted another one. I've been searching since then, but have not had much luck finding a good example, so I've switched to plan "b".
A friend of mine had a donor bike that he gave me but ended up being more of a project than i wanted to work with. However I started acquiring parts with the intention to build out the 600 motor. As you guys know not a ton of OEM parts are still available, so when I happened upon an 1100 motor the project has taken a new turn. I'll try to document my progress here.

Re: 1992 6/11 build

I was able to pick up the motor this afternoon, and perform a cursory assessment of it's overall condition. Internally it looks super clean. No sludge in the pan at all. Gears look good and intake and exhaust ports look decent. I was unable to locate my compression tested and leakdown tester does not have the adapter for the small plugs, so I opted to at least check valve clearances. Everything is within spec so I won't even have to replace shims. Here's some photos of the motor and a comparison of the 1100 pan and the 600 pan as well as the 600 stock headers.

I'll be watching this with interest. It's good seeing bike put back into commission rather than just being bastardised.

Re: 1992 6/11 build

It's going to be a little slow going for a while as the frame is in my basement for the moment and I just dropped off the wheels for fresh powdercoat. Once I get those back and mount some rubber, I can transition to my space limited garage. Anyway, got the gasket for the oil sump, installed the 600 pickup and sump pan. Also installed the 600 oil cooler. Here's a few shots.

Re: 1992 6/11 build

Drug the frame out of the basement, and was able to fit the motor. It seems everything lines up as expected and I don't think with the 600 frame there are any clearance issues since it doesn't have the same frame brackets the 750 does.

Re: 1992 6/11 build

The 600, 750 and 1100 all share basically the same frame. The 94 IIRC got upper frame mounted engine brackets, but the bottom ends are all the same for all intents and purposes so there should be no mounting issues.

I have always said there is nothing sexier than new rubber on white rims on these old gals!

Re: 1992 6/11 build

That's a great looking bike! Are you in the UK? Just asking because the plate holder looks like it's for a Euro bike.

Re: 1992 6/11 build

Yes, I am in the UK and the bike is\was a Euro bike.

Its not UK registered, I have never ridden it, just stored, it is well lubed up in the bores etc and has a sump totally full of oil, no petrol in the tank, carbs etc etc so stored best you can.

Over the years the tyres have gone hard, so its prob best parked up.

Only non standard bits are the front indicators and grips, I have these in a box, somebody said the rear disc is non standard but I dont know for sure.

I dont think theres another in the UK, seems a rare bike.

It made its way here from Netherlands via a US airman from California, I have all the docs.

There now you know as much as I do!

I will keep checkin back on your project, looks like I now know how to post pics up

Re: 1992 6/11 build

Did a little work on the bike over the holiday, and also picked up a set of 41s. They need to be re-racked though before installed. Fun Fun!
