First Upgrade: K7 GSXR 600

Discussion in 'Showcase' started by John.R, Nov 16, 2011.

  1. Hey guys,

    Just figured I’d post up my new (to me) bike. Have had it around 2 months now and have put over 3000ks on it :D

    Pics of when I picked it up:


    Mods included Carbon front Fender and Tank inserts and bar ends.
    Fender eliminator
    ASV C5 levers
    K&N air filter
    Braided front brake line
    Stick Rubber (Pirelli Dragon something something :p)

    Here are some pics of the first batch of mods done to the bike

    My order from the states



    Rim Tape
    Frame Sliders
    Case Savers
    BMC Air Filter
    520 Conversion with Stealth Sprockets and red EK chain.

    Latest pic:


    To do list includes:
    Carbon rear fender
    Carbon exhaust shield (next order)
    ProBolt Red Accessory Kit (ordered)
    Zero Gravity Double Bubble screen (next order)
    Radiator Guard (next order)
    Frame Plugs (next order)
    Polish water pump (will do over Xmas)
    Red radiator piping (will do over Xmas)
    Maybe an aftermarket exhaust, although unsure. My 'stock' one has been sounding much better since it has been 'lightened' of material.
  2. why did you swap the K&N for the BMC? I know there might be some SLIGHT differences between the brands but not enough to buy another one.
  3. Because the original owner forgot to mention it haha. It was only after I got the box of extra's a couple weeks after that I realised, and by that time, I hard already made the order.

    The BMC seems less restrictive though, and is smaller in profile.
  4. haha - awesome upgrade man, time to invest in superbike school no so you can unleash the potential of our new beast!

    Ps, the rim tape was defiantly your most worthy mod haha!!
