Recommended Posts

Hi All, it looks like its time for upgrade from my Suzuki GSX1250. Have laid my eyes on GSXR 750,have found one example on the attached images. Its 2004 with 22k miles, a lot of mods and comes with original parts as well. Probably those who own these bikes could tell whether bike has been crashed, looks suspicious etc. from pictures. Please could you let me know what you think of below?

Have studied over internet and things to look out for are gearbox, head bearings, if you have any usefull information please drop a note. Vieviewing is on Thursday, so any information would be much appriciated.Thanks in advance.

Looks pretty good from the photos.

Loads of mods and looks like might have a Kais fork opgrade (looks like a Kais sticker anyways)

If the price is right even if it needs a few jobs doing you can't go too far wrong with a gsxr750.

Thanks, you reckon it would seen much of track life? Also I spotted painting lines on the tail wont match, would that be worrying?could be just beacause its aftermarket seat..

Look nice to me :thumb: , GSXR 750s are great bikes, I’ve not had much experience on one but have ridden a friends K4 600 a fair bit-everything is the same on them except a bit less power and I thought it was a great bike to ride still nimble and modern feeling.

Also the whole ‘Blade on classic insurance thing, might just have been my experience with the ones I rode but I found pre 929/954 Fireblades (any one older than 2000MY) complete pigs to ride, they’re heavy, don’t handle well and arnt particularly enjoyable to ride, I’d take that K4 GSXR over one any day, or if you want a bike for classic insurance get yourself an original R1, better than similar era Fireblades by miles!.

Thanks for your input. If everything goes well on the day, I'll swap my bandit for GSXR750. So fingers cross all goes well. Will be sad to see it going, but im sure everyone knows the feeling who loves their bike[/img]

Though I will drop an update, at the end deal didnt happened, as I wanted cash on top. What you think, above bike GSXR 750 2004 23k on clock vs GSX1250 2012 28k on clock( full history, usb, heated grips, upgraded exaust can, fresh MOT, new front tyre, pads back front, coolant, oil, filter, plugs). He wanted 3300, i would like to have around 400 on top. Does that seems fair? Or you would swap 1 to 1?Thanks
