Default Big bore B12 swapped break in time!!

As a lot of the community here knows I have a 1995 gsx750f that I have been building on over the last 2 years.

Today I put over 100 miles on it.

What's this post about you ask?

I wanted to thank you! Thanks to anyone who gave me advice.

The bike is an absolute monster, its freaking insane. The suspension modifications are so much better. I can corner a lot harder and more confident. Bumps and cracks are smooth and the suspension has a lot of feedback.

The built, bored, forged, camed, bandit 1200 engine is absolutely over kill, I've been keeping the rpm's below 6k during the break in. Even at that it pulls insanely hard with a massive amount of torque.

The new wave rotors and rebuilt calipers have a more solid feel and definitely helps stop quicker.

At this point in time, it doesn't even feel like a Katana. I absolutely love it and I'm grateful for all the help from the community here!!
