Bye Bye GSXS1000
After nearly two fun years the GSX S1000 is sold.
It's the right time of the year for killer deals. I found a 2017 GSXR1000 sitting in a showroom with a blowout price. Took it home, $11,200 otd. I had something mind for the bike when i bought it. I added a ABM Superbike bar conversion with the same GSX S1000 fat bar. Seating position is now very close the GSX-S.
The new GSXR has ride by wire throttle and it closes the butterflies about 35% at 10,400 rpm. ( Rumored to help pass noise laws ) Power goes flat at 163RW. Friday ECU was derestricted, Fan cut on lowered and a up/ down quick shifter installed. It jumped to 179RW. It now screams hard all the way to the 14,400 redline. Quickshifter is super smooth.
The third gear 120 mph wheelies are a little unsettling.
I'm sure I'll miss the GSX-S but this sure is a worthy replacement!
