1991 GSX-R 750 Revitalizing

Hello Everyone!

I'm about to start cleaning carbs (maybe replacing carbs), updating breaks, suspension and eventually updating seat with rear seat delete.

Long story long, I purchased my 91' GSXR 750 in the middle of 2008. It had 30k of miles at the time of purchase and I rode it everyday I could in Minnesota for the next 7 years. Bringing rhe mileage up to 44k on the odometer.

Unfortunately, the bike was stolen from my "secure" underground parking in Minneapolis in 2015. Thankfully it was found a couple of weeks later, a county or two away in an Applebees parking lot.

Since then, it's been sitting in a heated garage while waiting to have the ignition swapped for one that doesnt fit the screwdriver used to steal it in the first place. šŸ˜«

First step is cleaning the carbs... Does anyone here suggest to rip the tank off and drop the engine to get deep and dirty?

Any advice as to how to complete that big portion of this project?

Anything helps! I'm a beginner and I'm excited about getting in over my head instead of paying dealership mechanic fees.

This is the bike in conversation šŸ¤ 
I don't post on this site as much as I should but I can tell you that you will find an overwhelming amount of information on cleaning carbs. I, personally, spent the money and upgraded to Mikuni flatsides on my 1990 GSXR 1100 but it all depends upon your long term plan for the bike and your budget. If you want to freshen up the carbs, do some research on here for the carbs you have, get access to an ultrasonic cleaner, partially disassemble them and give them a good soaking. Put a kit in them to freshen the soft parts and ride away. I do recommend you remove the tank and replace the seal between your fuel petcock to tank. They do leak as the bike ages. Have fun and good luck!
