To start with let me tell you: I love the bike (gsx-r750 k7). Better than any 600 out there. But, with a few, let's say, annoyances. Just wanted to ask the audience if it's normal or should I drop it off at the dealer's to get looked at. 1. The temperature. It's like a yo-yo. Up and down. The moment I stop (eg at the lights) it starts climbing up, sometimes all the way to 105 (when the fan kicks in). Really gives me the shits. In fact I ride constantly looking at the temperature gauge. It's liquid cooled so why the heck doesn't the liquid cool it? It seems to constantly rely on the airflow. Reminds of my Holden affair back a few years ago. 2. The vibes. From about 6000 rpm up the engine gets pretty vibie. It's not terrible but rather disconcerting. Although I've heard before that 750s do tend to vibrate. 3. Gear selection. I know that it's not as picky about gear selection as a 600. Well, that's the problem. I can be in the 5th doing 70kph @3000rpm and it's OK with the bike. It doesnâ€™t seem to complain. I rode a cbr600 once. Jees it hated it. Duc monster hated it too. I was just wandering if there is something like a general rule of thumb or something. 10-20=1st, 20-30=2nd and so on. I couldn't get anything out of the mechanic. He said they noticed some kind of pinging at high loads but said he didn't know why. Recommended I use 98 premium for a few tankfuls. I mentioned gear selection. He said probably not. I wander if I'm not choosing gears correctly. I can't hear jack at high loads. In fact I can't hear myself think at high loads, that's how noisy the bike is. Just the way I like it. 4. The suspension. Standard suites me just fine. I'm 77kg. But I wander if it could be better, say, for city riding and occasional country outings. Has anyone ever played with the setup. If I make it a bit more "pothole friendly", would it loose grip? Which I would hate.
