GCally – 2017 GSXR 1000 Track Build

There is not that much information available for the new GSXR 1000 yet so I figured I would share what I have learned over the last couple months building the bike.

Why do you have to be "top-level riders" to ride a newer 1k?


I have rode everything on the track from bone stock EX-500 to a 2005 Yosh GSXR 1000 with 195 rwhp and no electronic aid. Each bike requires a different riding style and is fun in its own way. Now I just do track days and have fun. Can I go just as fast on a 600 or 750 yes but I enjoy building bikes and riding what I want to ride.


This is a video of myself on a 750 going around a lot of people on liter bikes.

No, there is not that much data out there on this bike compared to R1, ZX10, and S1000. There is much more to setup than bolting on a couple parts.


Yes, Brock has done a good job with getting awesome power out of the bike but there is so much more to having a well sorted track bike than HP numbers.

well the average "street fighter" will never ride the bike to it's full capability and so far so good on the race series around the world using the "new" bike and I'm sure they have more info on set up then us street mortals do>:)

Exactly...
I don't have Josh Waters crew chief's cell number to give him a call and talk setup.

You guys are harsh. I though the whole idea of this forum was to share information about the sport we love and not to nitpick every single thing. I am trying to share my experience with building a 2017 GSXR 1000 track bike that might help the next guy build his bike.
