Added to the herd...

Purchased a 2017 GSXR1000 yesterday after debating it for awhile. Had 5k miles, a few goodies and a full M4 exhaust with PCV.

This thing is SUPER quick and I haven't even hit "A" mode yet.

While the riding position is certainly more aggressive, it's not overly painful for this 53 yr old. Had to do it while I'm still young. 🙂

Way to go ! I couldn't ride anything else for about 4 weeks when I got mine, was recapturing my younger days, kinda like that Twilight Zone episode where the geezer in the old folks home plays kick the can with the kids in the yard and becomes one of them LOL.

I'm happy with mine at traction level 3, I can give it full gas in 2nd and 3rd gear with just a nice gentle wheelie when it gets cranking with no fear of a 180

Nice!!!! And so is your garage! Seeing how clean that is just reminds me of how big of a slob I am. But seriously sweet motorcycle and someone else did all the work with the exhaust!

broncsrule21, she is, isn't she?

Moleeye, today was the first day of riding after getting tag and insurance (boy, was that an eye opener! lol) and I really didn't get to open her up. Hopefully get some seat time in later on.

Rusty, yes the M4 sounds mean! I actually took the baffle out of the Gixxus can and installed it in the Gixxer. Toned it down a bit.

I also went ahead and called M4 and ordered the parts to change out the moto Gp style can to the Tech1 Carbon style, which includes a midpipe and hanger to extend it on out.

Curious to hear about the comparisons between the 2 once you've had seat time, especially if the R has less TQ low & mid than the S.

Maybe it's the exhaust, but I haven't noticed any lack of power low or mid. I do run with it in higher rpm, but when I hit it, it moves on out!

I think these later year models have been designed different than the previous years and have spread the torque and power all thru the revs.

Maybe Moleeye can give his opinion since he's had his longer...

Is that a "double bubble" type screen or stock?

I don't notice a big difference in low to mid range power between the two ( factory stock ) bikes, despite the fact that the 2017 + GSXR has variable valve timing designed to boost midrange power compared to previous R's.

As to be expected, definite difference in top end

Very nice. With the GSXS being the fastest thing I've been on yet, I've really been wondering what a proper super bike is like. Maybe some day.
