A production has arrived.

Just thought people might like to know some people are getting productions now.

No your right. The 28th issue of MCN will have a full review and a real shoot out with the 2004 GSXR1000.

Thanks for the link. They also have a nice little clip on that site with some good exhaust tunes. :)

when i get the MCN on Wednesday, i'll do my best to scan the article and post it here.

The weather's currently pretty mild over here at around 10C and dry, so the test should go well.

Did they ever come up with a clear reason to the problem?
I remember at first they thought the shifting linkage was too weak but changing to a sturdier one didn't change it, I didn't hear anything about it after that. :?:

Aside from the heaftier shift rod being used @ Homestead i haven't heard squat as to the exact culprit. My check book has hopes of it being cured with the actual production models..... :?
