02 GSXR 1000...your thoughts?

so yeah, my srad threw a rod, and my bro has a 02 gsxr 1000 for me, im most likely going to upgrade to.

clean, powder coated frame, akro exhaust, fresh paint not even stickered (i like to do my own stickers). its been in a shop for a good while. it should be all fixed up, ready to ride no problems, nothing needing to be done to it. not sure if it has PC or what other mods...but all in all i suspect its in as bad condition as you could expect...

he wants $5500, but he's gonna let me put a G down and easy payments.

what do yall think? no wrong answers.

im asking for opinions on the deal, and about the year/model bike in general. any probs with them etc...

i heard the stock brakes were a bit soft, but nothing ss lines and good pads cant fix. might allready have em...

I had an 02 1k-great bike-brakes were fine on the street-but track duty was another story(fade prone).Very strong motor-3rd & 4th gear power wheelies common place-just respect it at all times.Price sounds cheap & being in the shop for awhile is suspicious

ya, thats what i read in a review about it too. the brakes cant handle the stupid amounts of power...ive havnt even done a trackday yet...so it may not be a problem for me...but then again, im at the point of riding that i really *should* be on the track instead of the street, so idk...

id think ss lines, pads, and maybe rotors would help...radial what-not...

im not gonna nit pick over it though, im more worried about quirks of the model etc...ie. some part that wears, or stuff you need to watch out for...

5500 for a painted 1000 seems kinda steep in my opinion

Why was it in the shop?

Why was it there for an "extended stay"?

The '02 GSXR1000 is a good bike. Some of the early ones had issues with the shift star bolt coming loose. Nothing a little green Loc-tite and a torque wrench can't fix.

The forks are TIN plated, and on some high mileage bikes the coating wears off, making it difficult, if not impossible to keep a fork seal from leaking.

A couple of other things to be aware of: the primary and secondary TPS will go out after a lot of miles.

The exhaust servo motor tends to go south relatively soon also, but you can easily bypass it and fool the ECU into thinking it's there.

The fuel filter gets clogged over time and is pretty expensive to replace parts wise.

Rear wheel bearings also start to show a lot of wear at around the 15k mile mark.

If the bike has been wheelied a lot look for cracks in the frame under the steering head and midway down the frame rails at the bottom.

Chris,
If you'd like, try to get the bike brought by the shop before you buy it and I can do a visual inspection / test ride to check it out for you, no charge.

It might be a little steep on the price but its much cheaper than if you financed it through a lender
