The now old GSX-R was an exceptional bike, winning AMA and world endurance titles and narrowly missing out on a BSB title. Suzuki have simply improved the weak points, namely better brakes, more midrange, lighter handling with a few cosmetic tweaks, which in the end produces an exceptional road bike with real world manners. It may lack sophisticated traction control...
This Suzuki GSX-R1000 is the original %X91Gixxer-thou%X92 %X96 THE top dog sports bike of its day. Later Suzuki GSX-R1000s became smaller and more revvy as well as faster round circuits and arguably easier to handle. The original Suzuki GSX-R1000 K1 and K2 models are still supremely competent sports bikes and pretty decent all round machines too.
The Suzuki GSX-R1000 K9 is the first completely new GSX-R1000 in the big Suzuki%X92s history, but it feels uncannily similar to the K7/K8 model it replaces. Despite a new short-stoke engine and an all-new chassis, the K9 hasn%X92t captured the spirit of the grunt-filled, lightweight K5 bike as we%X92d hoped and still lacks the agility to keep with its rivals...
Suzuki has never made a bad GSX-R1000, and they still haven%X92t. Their flagship superbike always leads the class, never follows, and the new GSX-R1000K7 is no different. Not only does it have more power than ever before %X96 up 7bhp to 185bhp - it%X92s now even to handle than ever. The user-friendly nature of the Suzuki GSX-R1000 was always its best...
Ultra fast, capable track missile that works far better on the road then you%X92d imagine. The MK II Suzuki GSX-R1000 (K3-K4) thou is smaller and more compact than the Suzuki GSX-R1000 K1-K2 models. It%X92s easier to flick around race tracks but, bizarrely, the Suzuki GSX-R1000 makes an acceptable one-man sports tourer too.
The first Suzuki GSX-R1000 set new superbike standards in 2001, the second one did it again in 2003 and this, the third full Suzuki GSX-R1000 update, went straight back to the top of the superbike tree in 2005 and stayed there, pretty much ever since. The reasons for the Suzuki GSX-R1000's dominance are simple. Sublime, lithe ergonomics and handling, radical...
I just got a K1 with a Micron + the link pipe which does away with the valve. Cos of hassle from the local plod, I now got a Quill T3 can and put back the standard 4 bolt link pipe. The valve is stuck "open" so I'm runnin' it like this for a while. The servo cables are there so I'd like it to be workin' again. I understand a mod would have been done in the ECU loom somewhere to prevent the FI light glowing when the valve is disconnected. Can I reverse this mod...if so how ?? ...
Mate of mine has K5 thou and has lost BOTH keys. Been told by local Suzuki dealer he will need to replace ECU, %XA3700. Is there an alternative ? Cheers
Anyone interested in starting a thread to discuss merits/drawbacks of fitting an aftermarket steering damper to a K5 - perhaps focusing on the usefulness of the standard damper?
anyone else had this problem?Took the bike in and the warranty chap said dont think you will be able to claim as the bikes been on a trackday!!!!!!!! Do you think it is worth pursuing this with Suzuki?
