Default My new toy!

07' Suzuki GSXR 600

Through the grapevine I caught wind of this bike for 2k. I went for a test ride and she is all mechanically fine except for a lot of cosmetic damage. Fairings loose and rattlecan'd. She was dumped at about 20mph cause it got clipped by a car.

It has 9500 on the OD. I did some pricing on ebay and stuff and for about 1k I can get this bike into a decient shape.

Only mod is a Yoshimura exhaust pipe. Seems kinda quiet to me

Pics to come.

Post pics of the damaged plastics. Most can be repaired cheaper than buying others.

Make sure you have someone throughly check the bike to make sure there is no frame damage or bent forks or anything. I was just riding with someone on saturday and crashed at 30mph and he had a nice dent in his frame and plastics were screwed.
If you need the parts for just above cost, there is a guy on clsb I can connect you with. Let me know.
Otherwise, congrats and be safe. Wear your gear!

Hmm what kind of parts can I get? I am looking at getting a new mirror, rear turn signals, all new fairings, a stator case, new front tire, new clutch bar and break bar, new pads, maybe a chain (only 9500 miles on the clock), air filter.

Just for starters lol

For sure clear title, and I figured about 1k in fairings and other parts and she will be prime!

Got an a-ok from one of my friends who has been riding for about 6ish yrs and he said that is still pretty stout.

I love the color too. But I have a friend whos father-in-law offered any painting if I needed it. So I seen on ebay a company who sells white corona fairings, but I am not a corona fan. So I am emailing the company to see if they can do black jack daniels fairings

Not over the net. It was a friends friend, long story short, he was strapped for cash, and needed to sell the bike, and the numbers do match. lol

UPDATE:
I have the new stator case and gasket coming and new break/clutch levers coming also

Stator Case w/ gasket- $161 shipped
Levers- $24.90 shipped

Total invested- $185.90
