nice bike!

reading the info sheet for the bike, it seems to indicate it has flat slide carbs, but the pics show you cleaning up the oem CV carbs.

did the bike come with flat slides, too?

carbon-carbon brakes.

the hotter operating temperature, the better the bite. It has been known that with carbon-carbon brakes, you can actually LET OFF braking pressure, yet the braking effect will remain the same.

Actually, these carbs are Mikuni BST38mm, they are CV but do have "flat slides", BUT they are not the traditional mechanical flat slides like the CRs or Keihen FCRs. These were actually the original carbs used on 91-92 GSXR750s (except Cali). These carbs have an additional "power jet" that works with the main to add more fuel in the 10k rpm and up range.

I think the idea of them was flatslide performance, with better fueling and no bogging associated with the true mechanical flatslides....

All that being said....it would be nice if it had REAL flatslides on it IMOP. But yeah the original info sheet is kind of misleading. I have a feeling that the owner that typed up that info sheet embellished it a bit. I mean 365lbs wet? YEAH RIGHT!

yeah, they reminded me of the bst's on my old bandit 400 and the bdst's (downdraft version) on my old rf900r.

true flatside/smoothbore carbs seem a little overkill for street duty, so I wasn't sure of the previous owner had simply pulled the race carbs off and replaced them with stock ones for streetability.

I can't wait to see how this bike comes together...

This is correct, and they would actually idle nicely, too, compared to mechanical flat slides from an earlier time.

These aren't bad carbs at all, and were commonly called "flat slides" because, relative to oval slides and round slides, these were, well, flat - at least on one side. You could, at the time, easily tune the performance in a variety of ways beyond the usual MJ, NJ, JN and PJ - you could also change the slides, using different cutaways, and also change the slide springs.

My first street bike was an 89 GSXR 1100, and looking at the pics takes me back, of course my was a hunk compared to the condition and all the goodies on this gem. Good luck with the build, and a video of you starting it for the first time would be awesome, I bet that D&D sounds nasty!
Sweet find, looking forward to the build

GixxerRacer73, THANKS for the pics!

I believe that is the 1993 Team Valvolins Suzuki scheme...that one looks awesome..... The 1991 colors are lighter blue, almost baby blue from what I have found...I don't care much for it.

The scheme/colors on your pics looks sweet. More traditional zuke racing colors. I wouldn't mind doing that scheme. Prolly cost $2000-2500 to get a nice job like that. More the I plan on sinking into this thing but....you never know.

That is it. Much better then what is on there now IMHO...

Not to take anything away from them but back then they were a very big fish in a small pond usually.

Well the ole girl breathes again....


She is pretty scrappy too.....


I still have some tinkering to do with the carbs but they are pretty close from what I can tell....I haven't rode it yet so that will really tell me what it needs....

Now I just have a ton of odd and end work, adjustments, wiring etc etc.....Then ofcourse a lifetime worth of polishing on EVERYTHING but....we're making progress.... I may try to take her around the block tomorrow. She sounds aweful off with that D&D race system on it....Those are some big ole pipes for a little 750....
