Streetfighter: Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R 7/11

Found this Yoshimura Gixxer on the PB mag forum, and since we like anything with the old GSX-R1100 engine…

Based on a mid-1980s GSX-R750, this GSX-R 7/11 streetfighter has been fitted with the engine from a GSX-R1100, Yoshimura Tri-oval Titanium exhaust, K&N airfilters, Dynojet stage-3 kit, Yoshimura magnesium engine cover and MTC slipper clutch.

The chassis is original Suzuki ‘Slingshot’ GSX-R, front fork is a WP USD unit, front wheel is a Marchesini Y-spoke 17-incher shod with Pirelli Diablo Corsa rubber, and front brakes, with four-piston calipers, are Tokico items off a Kawasaki ZXR750.

The rear shock is a WP unit, the swingarm is a modified Honda Honda VTR1000 SP-2 number, and the 16.5-inch rear wheel is from PVM. The endurance racing-style fuel tank is made of aluminium, and the mini-fairing at the front is made of carbonfibre. The overall effect, we think, is quite interesting…
