The time has come and I am selling my gixxer. Simply put, this bike was built to be one of a kind and there's nothing quite like it. It draws attention everywhere I go. These first-generation GSXR's are getting harder to come across, especially any in half-decent shape. I will admit that it is not perfect, there are some minor cosmetic flaws because this bike is actually ridden and not a complete garage/trailer queen. Power-wise it puts down right around 110 hp and 55 ft-lbs torque to the ground. Speed-wise it'll keep up with and beat a lot of newer bikes. It is deceivingly lightweight and quick. This bike is simple in design and easy to work on, almost every part on this bike is still available.




A quick rundown of the mods:

- fully-built, "frankenstein/hybrid" 815cc engine running 11.5:1 compression ratio. The entire top end is from a 2nd-generation GSXR, these have larger 73mm pistons, a cylinder block and head with larger cooling fins, smaller combustion chambers with larger valves, steeper intake runners, and much more aggressive camshafts. The connecting rods are from a 3rd-generation GSXR and are much better in design and a lot stronger. These paired with heavier Kibblewhite valve springs will handle higher revs and more power. Every seal and bearing on the motor was replaced at the time of rebuild. Bottom end has roughly 16k miles, top end about 8k.
- complete, brand new transmission with about 1000 miles. Detent arm, shift star, drum, forks, gears, all replaced with new units. 2nd gear on these old gixxers are known to fail. the replacement is a much better and stronger design with 4 undercut prongs instead of 6. Makes shifting a lot easier under power as well. The replacement detent arm spring is stiffer for more direct shifting
- EBC SRC clutch kit with fiber and steel plates. Barnett heavy clutch springs. Rebuilt clutch slave cylinder with SS hose
- full D&D exhaust. headers sprayed and wrapped, silencer repacked
- factory 36mm "slingshot" carbs reworked and rejetted with velocity stacks and foam filters. New throttle cable
- larger capacity, curved oil cooler from a 2nd generation GSXR 1100
- full Dyna 2000 ignition with the mini coils
- Pingel dual outlet petcock with reserve
- 2006 Yamaha R1 shock
- factory swing arm custom braced using a CBR 900 donor
- wheels and entire front end from a GSXR 1100
- custom mounted, adjustable steering damper
- 2006 Hayabusa clutch and front brake master cylinders with fully adjustable and foldable levers, along with the 6-piston brake calipers
- custom rear fender eliminator
- Lockhart-Phillips smoked headlight cover, Airtech mid fairings, zero gravity wind screen, custom number plates that are removable, TechSpec tank protectors/grips. And of course the Lamborghini yellow paint job

I know I'm forgetting some other details...

The rest is maintenance and upkeep:

- entire wiring harness gone through. all connections either cleaned up or replaced. all switches cleaned and checked for continuity
- every chassis bearing has been replaced
- vortex front sprocket, sunstar rear, DID chain, new chain slider
- new starter relay, starter motor cleaned and inspected, alternator inspected
- fresh oil change with maybe 500 miles on it, I change it every 2500 miles with only full synthetic Castrol 10w-40
- tags are current 'til July 2018

the list goes on but ill spare the details. The entire bike has been gone through, not a single bolt or clip left untouched

a few things to note:

this is an air/oil-cooled bike, running high compression and advanced timing. ONLY run premium fuel, and ONLY run full synthetic oils. Oil changes will be more frequent due to the nature of the engine. Clean and clear blue title in my name. Bike will come with lots of extras. This bike is for someone who appreciates classics and super bike history and who has mechanical knowledge and know-how, I will have no problem waiting for the right buyer. Serious inquiries only, and no trades.

Thanks for looking

Clean bike. I was lucky enough to be a teenager when the full fairing bikes took off and got my 1st one at 17 (88’ FZ600). Man the 86/87 GSXR’s were everywhere. Seeing a survivor brings back some memories. GLWS.

You're basically selling a perfect version of my highschool sweetheart. (I'm 46) If I hadn't just scratched that itch with a new to me foxbody mustang I would be all over this. Good luck.

Just watched the build, that was a complete restoration, impressive!! How long did the build take?

My first street bike was a 1989 GSX-R 1100 with the blue and white scheme. Loved that bike, and love yours.

Good luck with the sale!

Slash24, We are from the same generation. At 15.5 I got my motorcycle endorsement in So. Cal. on a YSR 50. Then when I turned 16 I got a brand new full size sport bike. Red/White '88 Yamaha FZ 600! At the time I thought that thing was super fast. Looking back, the air cooled 2 valve motor in a steel frame was an absolute . But the '89 FZR 600 was a different story!!

nice! well the pictures in the video are definitely not chronological and/or fall in sequence, it all took part over the time I've owned the bike for the past 4 years, its been an ongoing thing, one winter I built the motor, one summer I redid the ignition and electronics, another winter I did all the cosmetics and the suspension, and small stuff in between. thanks!

I fixed up the handlebar mounting better, solved some minor electrical issues and a mechanical issue with the carbs that I never previously figured out, re-checked valve lash and vacuum-synced the carbs. Not to mention this bike is now autographed by Kevin Schwantz this bike runs perfect and outside from some minor cosmetic flaws, I’d say it’s flawless
