GSX-S1000 Aftermarket

One of the biggest benefits I can see of using the already existing GSXR1000 as the donor is that the R already has a robust aftermarket. Meaning most engine, exhaust, suspension and brake upgrades for the the GSXR should be compatible with the GSXS...

Hopefully they are compatible with the GSXS. I don't see why they would make them not compatible unless it is actually impossible for some reason. I'll have to take a look at the aftermarket parts that are available for the GSXR.

Only reason I could see them not doing that is if they wanted to force people to buy even more parts instead of being able to reuse, but that would be a pretty douchey move on Suzuki's part.

True, but Suzuki doesn't control the aftermarket right, its more damaging for them to completely redesign a bike to inconveneice the aftermarket. The costs involved far outweight the benefits, and besides they want to keep the aftermarket happy, it keeps their clients happy...

That is true.
Having good aftermarkets support does help, it keeps things interesting.

thats what I mean though, if componenets are shared with GSXR then it reduces the risk for aftermakret meaning more parts

I've said in another thread, clipons/clubmans and pegs. However that stuff is fairly universal. Exhausts are on the list as well, but secondary to ergonomics, might consider a Power Commander as well, but we're talking well out at this point...
