Motor swap complete. \'03 GSXR Alstare Hybrid



The beautiful motor swapped in!

I didn't take as many pix as I should have, but I was horribly stinky/nasty during this time, as I spent at least 12 hours in the garage in unusual Texas heat, which is still continuing now.

She runs pretty good, only put down 140hp to the wheel though. 75 or 76 torque though. I'm pretty happy with that, especially since I have the stock 600 can (which may be the same for the 1000, still don't have confirmation of that yet).



I believe I am the first hybrid Alstare in the world, next to the professional Alstare/Corona team. Hopefully a pipe/full system will bump up the power a bit, maybe a PC3R too, but that won't be for a few months.

It wasn't too hard, considering I had never swapped anything into anything before. Jon at hybridracing (crazy2wheeler) is badass to deal with, along with L-W and HateMyHarley. They all gave wonderful advice and helped when I needed it most, thanks guys!

ERacer. The motor was from an 02 1000, and everything plug and played well, except for the airbox. You *must* use a 750 airbox.not the 600 or 1000. My motor came with everything, radiator, header, ecu, wiring harness, everything. When you decide to start, let me know!

L-W - Thanks again man. You are the parts god. Lemme know when you wanna go cruising around, I'm down.

Rip11 - You guys should definitely come up soon. Just let me know when, I have weekends off!

8Ball - You'd be the 2nd Telefonica to do the swap, since HateMyHarley beat ya to it. Let us know when you begin, plenty of help from these guys!

Matt

Re: Motor swap complete. \'03 GSXR Alstare Hybrid

BIKE LOOKS GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i'm glad you got it done..............
we may have to delay the ride, i picked up a nail yesterday

i wanted to tell you to watch out for the bolt that holds the lower part of the midpipe on...... mine was too close to the fairing and started melting it.... i rotated the clamp around and shimmed the fairing bolt out a little.........
just something to look for so you don't end up with a little melted hole like me.........ummmm.........
have fun watch the tire wear out really fast.........
OHH and the can is made for the 600/750 , the 1k stock can has different baffles in it
i'll let you know when i get a new set of tires so we can ride on a nice weather weekend.......
have fun !!!!!!!!! HYBRIDS RULE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Motor swap complete. \'03 GSXR Alstare Hybrid

Was wondering how these bikes get titled? Are they titled as 600s, or 1000s? I would assume as a 600. Would make a helluva difference in insurance premium.

Re: Motor swap complete. \'03 GSXR Alstare Hybrid

if you really get down to it....... its cheaper (a little) to buy a used 600 and install a 1k motor (considering you do the work yourself) than it is to buy a used 1k with the same or less milage........
save on insurance, initial price, not to mention the plusses of having a 180mm tire and the short wheel base

Re: Motor swap complete. \'03 GSXR Alstare Hybrid

She pulls the front up in 3rd like she used to in 2nd. I'm almost 100% sure that 4th is possible. I'm sure the 600 swingarm helps


I'll post some better pictures tonight.
