Good morning guys.Well , it's the morning here. he he .
Front end is from a 1994 GSXR-750.
Cams from GSXR-750 that you have to remove .125" at both ends.
Clip-ons are above the triple clamp(lowered the front 1 1/4".
Vortex clip-ons (black) are not on the bike yet, but Pazzo levers are.
Corbin seat was 420 $ can. Lot of money for a damn seat.It's also very heavy.Lock you on the bike when popping wheelies !Lowers the sitting position by a lot.Only bad thing is it keeps you too close to the tank so it's difficult to hide behind the windscreen at my size (6'/250lbs).Keeps the passenger in place.
Tail needs a fresh coat.
Air shifter not hooked-up yet.Just got it welded to the frame.
190 rear.
Relocated the rear signals lights if you noticed...
Used to have a Busa front fender on.Remember, bike has 88 000 kms !
Thanks for the comments guys.

Martin.

Had a second gear problem (under load) when i got the bike.Let it go for a while....and then rear wheel locked up at 80 km/h !
Very expensive repair & took 3 months to get the parts .
Parts were coming from Japan.The problem is that they wait to fill up the container before sending stuff.
I got the bike for peanuts so i got it fixed.If bike is in bad shape/high millage, sorry but just get rid of it/part it.
***mun problem on RF/GSXR/R6.

Not so sure about the single black myself as you loose the shape of the RF.

Try getting gearbox parts for a 1983 GSX1100. They take months to come.

hi there i know what you mean about the seat riding position some times esp when in leathers the old wedding tackle can get squeezed at the worse times painfull but you can`t deny they look so cool i have purple piping to match the colour of the bike try replacing all of the wheel bearings f and r it really helps esp when pushing the bike to the garage to get fuel any happy riding by the way the seat cost £80 on ebay

No m8, A 190 wont fit as there isnt the clearance at the chain side.

Hi guys.
Got bike back from dyno.Bike running smooth but no change in performance (new Factory Pro emulsion tubes in).Need to gut the mid pipe, too restricted !
Bike shows signs of age/wear.Needs a honing/rings job or just go with the 1100 upgrade.
Painted the tail.Looks way better.Also got for free a K2 750 tail & hump that i got painted black.Need to get the 2 seat and the tail light.Putting back stock links in the back, too low for riding with passenger.
Got the air shifter plumbed up today (piping),need just to hook the engine kill & selenoid to the horn button via a toggle switch (arm/desarm).
Vortex clip-ons are on.Love it.
Should be sunny here tomorrow .will take pics.

Good night.
Martin.

Hi guys.
Just posted few pics of my bike at different stages over the years.
The one with the air shifter is the most recent.
