  • My GSXF/R

    Well, it is official. All engine work (except the 600 mile maintenance) is complete with the Mexitana. It runs like a dream, and a bat outa hell. The power of that bike is unbelievable. It just begs to bet opened up and let go. We did a 350 mile ride last weekend, and it ran great. Had it up to about 120, with lots of room to go. Yesterday I got stuck in bad traffic, and wasn't sure how it was gona hold up to the stop and go (with a lot more stopping than going) in the heat, but it did great. Hopefully in the next few weeks we can get the rest of the body done and get that put on as well. Until then though, I am still riding it nekkid.

    For those of you that are new or not sure what I am talking about, Corey and (with the help of our Prospect Boner a.k.a. Bonstrosity) transplanted a 89 1100 GSXR engine into a 99 Katana 750 frame. Lots of go fast power

    The 600 mile maintance will be done Saturday morning, then more riding shall take place. The only other thing that needs to be done is to get the correct header and pipes on. Right now I am running a old Gixxer 750 header with my Katana D&D pipe. I am just waiting to get the dual cans, then I will be putting on a GSXR 1100 header, with dual exhaust. That 750 just seems to be not as free flowing as it needs.

    Once the duals are on, I'll post pics!

    is the dual exhaust factory or aftermarket? The 1100's use the same exhaust port size/spacing as the 750's don't they? So this dual exhaust setup may work as a solution for those who want to keep the dual look of a first gen, but with better performance. Sounds do-able, no? maybe with some simple bracketing to get the cans to mount right. hmmm.... let me know how it works out for you.

        The 1100 exhaust I got was off a 93, and the diameter of the pipe is deffinately bigger. And yuppers, they are stock duals. I am just in need of some cans, and Mr. Special K had the answer for me until I can afford to get some aftermarket ones

          There have been no changes cosmetically since these pics were taken.... except for the nice dent in my tank now since the bike fell over in the truck.

                  Even with the restricted pipes on that thing it must move fast.
                  I am jealous.

                    Oh yeah, it moves fast. I brought it up to 9k rpm's tonight, rolled it up kinda slow. I'm afraid to just pop the throttle wide open

                        Lou, a while ago you were asking what numbers you should put on the side of your franken-bike (1127/1100/600/none?). Personally, I vote to keep it clean, sans numbers. I did think of a good compromise suggestion, one that is understated and does not scream "I have a big engine!!" but still makes the right people ask questions: just like the title of this thread "GSXF/R". Just another idea.

                        I like that color too!
                        Ride like your life depends on it.

                          Curious...

                          Lookin' good

                              Oil Cooler from the Kat 750. CDI from the Kat 750. Altenator from the Kat as well, just changed out the gear on the altenator from the 750 to the 1100 so the teeth would line up right. Basically all the electronics are the same, just changed out the engine. I am going to upgrade to super coils and maybe a bandit oil cooler in the future.
