How my season went on my Gixxer// Bunch of pics

I know its not a Kawi, i thought maybe you guys would enjoy my first street bike project. Im actually thinking about adding a 04 zx10r to the stable and compete on it in a swb class.

Anyways here is how my summer went on my bike. Bought my GSX-R 1000 K7 in May this year. And just got my motorcycle license two months earlier. I bought a CBR 954 as my first street bike when i got my license and then bought a 2007 GSX-R 600 that was turned into a street fighter but decided to sell both of those bikes and get a more powerful bike and ended up buying the K7 1000. Btw i have been riding motocross bikes for 10 years but this was my first year on streetbikes

so here is a picture show with some comments about how my summer was on the bike, modified it quite a lot. Got it with just a slip on exhaust with a cat delete. went from mid 10s to low 9s in the 1/4 mile. And the bike is still a stock motor on pump gas

Modding some more over the winter and aiming for 8s next season :)


hope you guys enjoy

Bazzaz installed



But then there was a major problem. The previous owner had screwed up when changing plugs and one of them was stuck in the head. So we tried to get it out with no luck and needed to pull the motor out to get the head of, Did that in two nights since there was a 1/4 mile competition coming up


Unplugging and getting all the electronics out of the way


Motor out


Doesnt look like much but sure is fun




The head


stupid spark plag that caused all this trouble


Cycle concepts drag pak clutch


Had a 1/4 mile competition the next day so we reused the old headgasket since there were none available in the country and would take 1 week to get a new one


head ready to back on


Motor back in


At the track the next day. First time trying out the new setup and was convinced that something would go wrong




But the bike performed nicely and nothing went wrong. Ran a [email protected] without nitrous. Did try the nitrous out but couldnt hook on the regular road tire but did trap about 154mph


Bought a shinko hookup






time to go over the clutch, putting in the Cycle concepts drag pak


Soaking the fibers before installing


At the 1/4 mile again


Need to shorten the kickstand so i dont have to park on a rock everytime i stop lol


Had some problems, the left side fairings broke lose during one of the run and ripped of. So i removed the rest so i could make some runs




doesnt look pretty but she was still delivering




My best times of that day [email protected] all motor and [email protected] with a 30 shot


new rear sprocket to help with the launch 46 T(+3)


installed and ready to try out


at the 1/4 mile


new best no nitrous run [email protected]


The winnings so far


Temporary fix so i could at least have some fairings on




removing the clutch so i can take the slipper out and weld it

hehe nice. Im not really stuck on just any one brand. Had a CBR 954rr as first street bike and then a GSX-R 600 and now the k7 1000. Looking into buying a 04 zx10r also but i would also love to have a 11+ zx10r since they seem to be the best bang for buck in performance

Thx man. Going to lighten the bike and add more power over the winter. should lose about 40lbs and gain 15whp so im hoping for some 8 sec slips next season. And hopefully improve the 60ft aswell and get into the low 1.4s 60ft
