GSXR stunt bike?

Found a smokin deal on an 07 gsxr600, needs complete bodywork and a few other minor things...

Question is, do they make good parking lot stunt bikes? I've herd the frame is weak at the neck and the subframe is as weak as one of my highway wheelies (yut ugh lol) but seriously I would like to man up to a bigbike and am wondering your thoughts. There must be a reason I don't see people stunting new style gsxr600s.



Your thoughts please...

most any newer bike is a weak frame and all. thats why people stick to learning on the older fi bikes like the f4i. usually once you get it down to where your not crashing alot then you buy the clean new stunt piece. and yea the subframes are crappy on those. someone ive seen makes complete steel subframes for that bike though i forgot who. but thats the bike i want as a stunt bike. a new gsxr. something about a stock looking sportbike doing wheelies is sick to me

They do look good, to bad I was gunna streetfighter it anyway...


So is that the only downside to stunting a gsxr, the subframe? What about the oil and motor, one day (hopefully) I'll be rockin slow wheelies, the engine isn't gunna go dry from being all towards the back of the motor us it??

I heard gsxrs have a bad rep for running the motor dry on oil and the coolant reservoir needs to be repositioned.

Also the clutchs are pretty weak when doing burnouts and are easy to fry.

But you can stunt anything sir! PS GSXRs look sexay!

All of the newer bikes 04 > are weak and typically need frame reinforcing. I would say go with it. Take the fairings off and get a cage/round bar.

you'll need an oil pick up...

but if it's cheap, then learn on it... guys used to rock gsxr's all the time back in the day...
new bikes are weaker cause of this so called 'track' riding... people want lighter, faster bikes.... ghey

You just have to do a bunch of little tricks to them to get them to run right and have the power where you need it, the subframes are garbage and the tanks are miserable to try and dent. That is the number 1 bike i weld a new larger lip on the back side of, hrmm . . . if its a smoken deal it might be worth the aggravation

If you make a steel subframe you will end up breaking the frames subframe mounting tabs! just to let you know, so no 12 bar dragging unless you want to break something. I would go F4I
GSXRs are good for riding not stunting, but hey, I stunt my GSXR I just got to watch the condition of my bike AKA frame and subframe

yea it happens when you mount steel to aluminum alot. but it should be noted that its not a end all fix and makes the bike indestructable. just like a cage doesnt mean your bike will never break from a fall. its just something easier to replace and fix than a motor or cracked frame. just replace the cage. same thing with the swingarm. but bar tricks are oldschool anyway
