Got an Aim Solo 2 GPS lap timer. Nice and rugged and PC software looks good. They have a custom bracket for GSX-R so it’s easy to install.
Just back from a 4617 mile 13 day trip out to the Canadian maritimes.
I just turned 50, and I'm looking at a mint K5 1000 for sport-touring. The picture above^ makes me think I need this to happen!
Are you using a Ventura rack setup?
Yep, been using the rack and bag system on my touring sport bikes for 24 years.
Had a sweet K6 that I hit a deer with, loved that bike!
Took me a while to warm up to the 2011, but we get along great now.
56 years old here.
Bought a new 2019 750 today. White stuff on the ground, dealer is going to hold onto it for me until spring.
Shopping for a fender eliminator kit, frame sliders, and whatever else I can think of right now. Spring can't come fast enough...
Nice ride, you will love it!
I put the Yoshimura fender eliminator kit on mine, it's a quality piece and easy to install. With a built in license plate light which of a lot of other kits don't offer.
And I can also recommend the Shogun No Cut frame sliders. Super easy to install, and you don't have to cut the bodywork.
The exact fender eliminator kit and sliders I was thinking of ordering. Revzilla has both in stock.
Also looking at a Yoshi R-77D slip-on, but that will be a ways down the road. Fender kit and sliders will be here waiting on the bike.
That yosh kit is a bit spendy.
Dennis Kirk has the targa kit on sale for $43 right now.
I kind of wish I'd seen it before I bought my $19 license plate bracket from Amazon. The light solution I had in mind doesn't quite fit, so I'm going with the led bolts for now.
Just realized I hadn't taken a pic without the fender. So here's the before when I picked it up last week.
Been eyeing the Zero Gravity Corsa windscreen and the Yoshi Alpha T slip on lately. It's gonna happen, just a matter of time. Sooner than later me thinks.
I also recommend the $30 Amazon/eBay seat cowl. The price Suzuki is asking for the official part is outrageous.
Is that the matte black or the gloss black? How does it compare to the fake carbon fiber trim that the bike comes with?
Yup, ordered one of those in matte black on Saturday. Had it sitting on my Amazon wish list since the beginning of January.
With winter still holding me hostage here, I can afford to move a little slowly on this stuff.
I ordered the matte one from Amazon, there were only a few left and it looks like 1911 for one of the last ones also, a there are none left, at least from the same seller.
I believe I saw some on eBay also
My ‘03 1000 has shitty front brakes. The master cylinder is Brembo and it has a galfer wave rotor conversion.
I think the rotors are the main reason, feels like they don’t move freely on the rivets.
More investigation required but it’s stuffed in the back of the garage right now and won’t be out until it’s not so f$cking cold.
Now that you've had these on the bike for a while, do you consider them a worthwhile purchase? Do they make a noticeable improvement in rider comfort?
You have me thinking about a set for my 750. I see they make 1 and 2 inch drop versions of them.
Never used them.
Finally brought my new 750 home from the dealer last Friday. Bought it back in January and let the dealer hold onto it for the winter.
Got the fender eliminator installed, seat cowl, spools, brake reservoir sock. Little things to help make it mine.
UPS delivered this yesterday, my Yoshi Alpha T slip-on:
Yoshi exhaust bracket to get rid of the passenger peg brackets/mounts gets delivered today.
