Hey all, I know most who read this probably haven't seen my new member post so I'll run it down again. I'm on plenty of other forums and have been riding for about 10 years now. Been on the track for 2-3 years and currently have a Ducati 1199 Panigale S that is track only. I'm going to be building up a 2011 Suzuki GSXR-600 for track days, racing and control riding.

I've been on Ducati's only since 2011, if you ask any question about parts etc in relation to them chances are I'd be able to help you out. However I lack 6-7 years of knowledge when it comes to Suzuki. I came from Honda before that so I don't know much about Suzuki's.

I'm looking for help with what most people run when it comes to Slippers, suspension, body work, electronics (PCV, bazzaz, tuneboy) quickshifters and anything else that anyone wants to share with me. Does anyone make a rear brake relocate?

I'm ready to read and learn. Thanks for any help in advance!

The difference between the Ducati and GSXR is geometry and the single sided swingarm. Other than that, all the parts options are the same across manufacturers(for the most part).

I've been riding Suzuki's exclusively on track for 7 years, and I don't know about anyone who makes a rear brake relocator for any of them. Starting to see them pop up as one off attempts, though.

If you have any specific questions, feel free to PM me. Or ask here, whichever. I just switched from an 06 600 to a 11 600.

To some extent yes. I run EVR clutches in my Ducati's - they aren't available for Suzuki's. So was curious to what most racers are using when it comes to Suzuki.

Also things like k-tech vs onlins. etc. Obviously Ohlins is the big brand name and is all I run on my Ducati's but I've noticed a lot of other products for suspension components on Suzuki's that seem to be pretty nice.

Seems like sharkskinz bodywork isn't available for the 600 either. I'm looking into Armor bodies but don't have any experience with them.

Things like drivetrain are easy to pick out.

Thanks dude! Ordered that part. Now have to order the brembo caliper to work with it haha!

Stick with the OEM clutch. They work great, last good, and are easy to get. I don't know anyone on an 06+ gsxr that road races that uses any other clutch.

Suspension options are motly the same. Penske, Ohlins, KTech. JRI makes a shock. I had Traxxion AK20 cartridges in the forks and a Penske 8987 shock on my 06. My 11 came with Ohlins 30mm fork ctartridges and a TTX shock. I haven't really spent enough time with the suspension to see how I feel about the Ohlins, but I loved the AK20/Penske 8987 setup.

I think my bike came with Sharkskins. I know there is Armor Bodies available. I haven't looked much further into bodywork. I am still new to this newer model GSXR.

Awesome thanks dude! Thats great to hear about the stock clutch. I think I'll be getting some armor bodies for the 600. I get a deal on them so going to give them a try. Hopefully they work well.
