Thinking about buying a GSXR 750 next summer.Are the performance/torque specs very different between the 1100 and the 750´s?I guess the 600´s need to get revved a lot to get some speed out of them...

Depends on the year really. The 1100 were fast and had plenty of torque. In my opinion the 750's and the  600's live for rpm's. But I suppose that is true for any smaller displacement engine. The newer 600's will run off and hide from the older 750's. what year are you thinking of getting?

Nice man! Stoked to see more people modifying these bikes. Don't see too many of them around.

Here is my 93' GSXR1100:

Wow that is sexy as hell. I love all Gsxr's. I would love to have one of every generation.

The early SACS motor 600's are a bit overweight as cases are same as 750, (so just drop a 750 top end on) later ones got thinner sections in various parts but still overweight in my opinion.  (even though I have a 95 Katana 600) 600 and 750 are more or less same motor, 1100 uses same bore spacing and main bearing diameter so 'in theory  ;) ' it's possible to fit 1100 crank, rod, block, head etc and have a 6 speed transmission. ( and use a 1200 Bandit block  ;) ) With lower red line, 1100 never got shimmed rocker arms but 600 and 750 did which gave extra 500 rpm top end (Yoshimura wanted lighter valve train for racing but it spat the shims out with high lift cams and high rpm)
You may notice Suzuki introduce 'new' 600/750 every other year and 1100 (now 1000) in between
When I worked in Suzuki dealers it was a toss up between Honda and Yamaha for a 600, GSX-R for a 750 and Kawasaki for 1000/1100. Things took a dramatic change wen Suzuki got water-cooling  8)

Ryan, how fast do you want to go?  Even the oldest 600 will be fast enough for most situations.  If you want a relatively cheap torque monster take a look at an 1100.

Plus the cool factor for the 1100 is much higher... Every other young guy around here is riding a newer 600 and don't have a clue how to ride it. If a guy were to pull up on an old 1100 you can bet your ass I'm gonna  walk over and look at it and not pay any attention to all the modern bikes.

Probably my most favorite engine ever.  8)
Which 1100, L, M? Still pretty twitchy on the street but ideal for racing
It does have limitations but a dead reliable 140 bhp. (more with a modified 1200 Bandit motor)
Oil cooling isn't most efficient but beats the hell out of air cooled (unless ducted fan) One thing Suzuki did introduce to motorcycle world  that 'everyone' now uses - under piston oil jets squirting on bottom of piston crown.
 With modern low viscosity synthetic oils, heat transfer can be improved but still needs more oil cooler surface area than a water cooled motor
Oil jets under piston is an old dirt track trick at least since the 60's

1100 was the first road bike to lap the TT course at an average speed of over 120mph.  It was a very big deal its its day, and it ain't no sluggard today.
I was born a rocker.  I'll die a rocker.  And I'm proud of it.

I´m thinking about getting this ugly streetfighter I found not far way from my hometown and changing back the angle of the seat, repaint it and ride the ish out of it.
Really an eye-sore right now.
Its a 1100 built in 1989.What do you think?
