Streetfighter Bling’s Suzuki GSX-R1100s


This is what a lot of money, time, talent and hard work will do to old GSX-R1100s

The two streetfighter GSX-R1100s here are from the UK-based Streetfighter Bling. First up, the black bike with the yellow wheels. Special bits on the 1991 GSX-R1100 include a specially fabricated single-sided swingarm from Spondon, lightweight magnesium wheels (Marvic front, Dymag rear), and Ohlins steering damper. The tail unit is from a Cagiva Mito.

The GSX-R’s 1100cc, air-and-oil-cooled inline-four has been bored out to 1186cc, the head has been flowed and ported, and re-profiled cams with adjustable sprockets have been fitted. Carbs are 38mm Mikuni flat slides, with individual K&N filters. The engine now makes 163 horsepower at 10,500rpm, which should be… er, adequate for most people.

The bike also gets USD forks from a GSX-R1000 (with upgraded internals), ISR fully adjustable clutch and brake master cylinders, fully adjustable Ohlins rear shock, and LED traillamps and turn-indicators.

We don’t, unfortunately, have any details on the blue-and-white GSX-R1100, but from what can be seen in the picture, the bike has been fitted with a USD fork (from a GSX-R1000?), Tokico front brakes with six-piston calipers, Yoshimura exhaust (routed below the seat unit), JMC swingarm and Ohlins rear shock. And, yes, we think the bike looks amazing.
