I love those Gixxers. I WILL get my hands on one someday.
I'd also like a ZX7

Clicking the link below should get you to more images of the same bike............seanLast of the dinosaur, monster superbikes still inspires awe today. It’s a beast: 147 carburretted horses, bad boy bulk and still enough acceleration to send shivers down your spine. Good ones are starting to appreciate in value and this minter, with all original parts, surely falls into that category.
Well......the 750 is my preference but that's based on handling alone. The 1100 is more of a handful as the extra power comes with extra heft. Also, it has a 5 speed transmission versus the 6 speed on the 750. Brakes are identical though so that should give you an idea how powerful the 750s brakes are. A ride height change helps tremendously if you find the right kit for that. Back in the day, Yoshimura had a catalog as thick as a phone book with all kinds of trick stuff for every year GSXR up to 1995....Once the SRAD showed up, that kind of went away.....seanmangosmoothie said:Would you get a 750 of the era or the big boy 1100?
While I know who Guy Martin is, I didn't know about that particular bike. From what I can see...Spondon swing arm? Turbo kit....06 or newer tail fairing...Ohlins fork...Brembos....Marchesini wheels? Heavily modded for sure. Not an oil boiler though...that's a water cooled frame....seanjonh said:Sean, you will probably have seen or read about Guy's Martek bike. Started life as a gsxr-1100.
My buddy Rick, had one when I first met him. He traded it off for a Ducati Monster. He now has an 848 Street Fighter and a V7 MotoGuzzi. I rode a Triumph TT which is the engine the Speed 4 was based on. Really similar to a Honda F2 CBR in engine character. Problem was, Honda was on the F4i by the time the TT came out. I think the Street Triple is a better bike with an engine based on the 675 Daytona. That's just me though.....the Speed 4 is your BOD.....seanmangosmoothie said:I want a speed four. also think it's part of the reason I have a Speed Triple now.
I think the speed sensation is gonna be the same on ZX-9R with its a top end rush. That and a ZX9R is going to be easier to find in good running order, it's more reliable and handles better. All in all, I'd go with a ZX9R before I went looking for a turbo bike....seanmangosmoothie said:I just want one for being a squid on. Some good pulls on straight roads. I think the sudden onset of power would give a very high sensation of speed
