GSXS vs GSXR: Engine

So we know the GSXS uses the same 999cc K5 from the Gixxer 1000, but its not an open and shut nip and tuck...

Suzuki tore through the K5 looking for improvements.

  • Pistons 3% lighter than GSXR
  • New Cam Profiles to optimise valve timing, improves torque delivery
  • Iridium spark plugs
  • New Radiator design
  • New compact oil cooler leaves more room for exhaust piping
  • SDTV throttle system optimizes air/fuel
  • Balancers between headers

Zook says all this is geared towards the lows and mids this bike is most likely to spend the majority of its time in.
