Came across a black and gold 2008 GSXR-1000.. Decided that it was time for a new bike. Picked it up last Wednesday and headed straight for the black spur. The bike is silky smooth compared to my 2001 gsxr. It has switchable ignition maps that all GSXR's now have.. I still think power is controlled by the right wrist, don't need electronics to do it for however it gives you something else to play with. Only mod so far is a set of Remus exhausts. I think they are a bit loud for normal road use so will try and get a set of bungs made up for it. Next mods are 1. Fender eliminator & 2. Removal of the front reflectors. Other than that I plan on keeping the bike pretty standard.
