Seems fine the way it is, my 2003 had the tall one and it fell over easy, so I'll stay with the short one for now

You snapped a BBQ rack? I've dropped my DR numerous times and my rack has yet to budge.

When I used a Motech rack, I used it with the optional top case plate which is a quick release from the base rack. Too much movement for my taste. I also like the much larger area of the BBQ rack. I guess if you bolted a Pelican to the Motech base, it wouldnt have the movement of the optional top case plate.

I was going to say, it looks pretty strong

Simple questions from newbie

What style GSXR muffler is best for the DR? I've read about a shorty? What years are they to be found on the street bike? I know they'll shed lbs, and is that the whole point? Thanks!

Yes sir, but looks like they didn't realize it had the short kickstand, I asked and they said no.

They originally sold the bike new, lowered the back by moving the bolt hole postilion ( did not flip the collar)
They also raised the fork tubes in the triple clamp, they said they did not adjust anything in the forks. I can pull the cap off and make sure the steel spacer is there. Anyway, I had them put it back before i picked it up.

I actually like the shorter kickstand for now, may not like it when I respring the rear for my 210 fat ass

The muffler is stamped x40F0x, it's from the 2001 and 2002 GSXR 1000, it's a bit louder than stock, but way less than aftermarket. It's titanium, never needs repacking, Gives more power and torque



here is some good reading, can't wait to get mine installed

Thanks! Those are the only years? I would imagine they are getting very scarce!

For a body that is reasonably compact (compared to later models ) and has a Ti internal parts yes.
There are others but they are bigger and have stainless steel internal parts.

How full is full? Or running out of gas after 2.5 gals

So yesterday I purposely let the bike run out of gas so I could find out true range on a tank of gas. I ran out at 108 indicated miles on stock tank. Fuel switch set to on. I switched over to reserve, drive about 1/2 mile to the gas station and filled up. I only put 2.5 gallons in it, which was up to bottom of fuel filler neck. I was surprised by how little it took, thinking I would get more like 3 gallons.

Is this normal? How full do you fill up? This is only my 2nd tank of gas on this bike, so im just trying to figure out what to expect. Thanks.

It's normal, the ON fuel straw is long enough to give you about a gallon of reserve

I bought a Pat Walsh rack and bolted a Pelican 1500 directly onto it. This combination is tough, sturdy and works awesome. I can fill the case with anvils and make jumps like Evil Knievel. Used stainless bolts, fender washers, rubber washers (for damping) and nylon lock nuts. Can be removed in about 5 minutes.
