1998 Gsxr 750 build
« on: Dec 14, 2017, 21:03:14 »
I was lucky enough to pick this up over the summer. I am just now starting to mess with it.
the engine was knocking pretty hard so I picked up another a cpl weeks ago. Somewhere close to this thing is where I wanna end up.

It needs some love for sure.  I had a 96 back in 97ish and loved it. One of the funnest bikes I have ever owned...till I crashed it at Deals Gap  >:(

The engine in it was nasty...I think they thought it was a dirt bike...
found a missing tooth on the counter shaft sprocket...

That's had a hard life but should be easy to resurrect  8)
 Probably been 'stunta'd' ?
 98 was a good year., Suzuki 'cheaped out' on electrical system in mid 2000's to keep price lower.

One of buddies from high school had a 97 gsxr where I had a 94 Yamaha FZR 600. He was a bit quicker but THAT bike was his first. Those were fun. Same colors as your “get to” bike.   I should’ve never gotten rid of my fzr. So much fun. Ugly, but I bought in 95 from dealer showroom with 100 miles on it.

Nothing wrong with that yamaha.  Nice fox body in the background too.

The 3HE FZR was a road razor in its day.  It defined sports bike handling 3 decades ago.
If it ain't broke, then I haven't been hitting it hard enough.

Super neat FZR600.

I found this while looking for images of the stock 98 GSXR750 .  Cool cut-away.
