1340cc katana

  1. how about a 1340cc 88 katana 600 yep it has 178hp and it is a fun ride!

  2. :? I'm confused.... is this a post?

    Is it a question or a statement or what? :?
  3. How about a pic?
  4. We need pictures - and details, by 600 Katana do you mean the 650cc shaft-drive version or the GSX600F (sold in the US as a Katana).
  5. hmm.. maybe it was in response ..yet accidentally started a thread instead (ryhmes) ehehe :shock:
  6. No pics. No proof. No details. Next it will be a 1700cc Vespa.
  7. Theres a guy in the game affectionately called Mono Rono,havent seen him but apparently he can mono on a track as far as the straight goes,kinda like a trade mark signature ride, like Corser with his leg over the Duke while mono-ing like he did few years back at Philip island after winning both races and the SBK championship?
    He,s the Gixxer king,Katana as I understand it is basically a worked GSX1100 motor with some extra good bits,I was told he,s been boring out and stroking gixxers for years,to make the 1340,s, making rough equivalent version,s of the Hayabusa 1300cc,s :shock:
  8. There was also an ad on ebay recently by a guy that had modified a standard Kat motor into a six-cylinder and was selling all the equpiment needed to make your own (forget though what the final displacement was, or what size Kat engine they'd used).

    Oddly, the original design ethos re-reared its head at the 2005 Tokyo Motorcycle Show, when Suzuki rolled out a concept bike called the Suzuki Stratosphere, which heavily incorporated many facets of the original ED1/ED2 designs, although tied in a new transversely-mounted narrow 6-cylinder engine.

  10. how about a 45litre 10000hp cb45000, it is a fun ride!
  11. Not THAT would mono!
  12. No, this was some guy who'd created a mould based around the original, air cooled, kat motor. Found some pics, if I remember correctly all he was selling was the moulds to make your own - and they weren't selling cheap.
  13. ok it has a 92 gsxr 1127 engine bured out to 1340 it has 38mm carbs
    ported and polished head and 265 grind cams it is geting a swing arm from a 93 gsxr750 and a 190/50/17 tire and yes this is a 88 katana in the USA
