Just looking at GSXR 750's and just wondering what peoples experiences are of them regarding reliability and how they cop with riding in all weathers

**It's a gixxer! - **
- engines are bulletproof .... I am aware of some folk complaining about the finish on them not faring well in winter weather.
We have had no such problems with Sky's K6 which is now 6 yrs old and done 26,000 miles...although to be fair it does not do many winter miles.
the main thing kam how it holds up to winter dont want a bike that shit after one winter
bikes are worse for wear after one winter,IF you don't clean them thoroughly and often or prepare them properly. Simple as that.
when u pin it and you hear the induction noise at around 9000 revs you wont care about a few rusty or furred nuts
Great engines, the rest of the bike is mechanically sound but the finish is weak. They do not stand up to winter very well and are difficult to tidy up once tatty.
mine wasn't mint....
when I got it Lucas....but it's now 10 years old and done 40,000+ miles in all weathers and doesn't look any worse....I've had it 2 years now and it's still on same battery ( and that's with an alarm fitted.)and all I really do is change the oil every 3-4,000 miles and filter every other oil change.(you can do the changes with all the fairings in place. K and N air filter fitted recently (recommended) no change to fuelling....and a bit of autoglym on the plastics and tank now and again...there's nothing you can do about stone chips to plastics, but they seem strong enough....One headlight bulb and a new clutch cable the only failures I've had...£2-50 and £8-95 each.....don't really like posting things like this because they can soon be followed by 'Blown the B******* up' posts.
Kindle not a fire that you cannot extinguish.
lmao just have to be a lot of cleaning i guess
Its a few years
since I had one, but I loved it, fantastic for track days as well.
Bullet proof engines, making upto 100bhp. Frames and wheels are very flexible, making for "interesting" handling. Odd wheel sizes don't help either. Classic lines though.
We ARE talking about the slabbies, aren't we??
no lol the 2006 -2008 model 750's
