It’s a Suzuki GSX-R750 K6 and it’s taken all winter to build into this high-spec streetfighter.
I really wanted to keep it looking like a GSX-R, so the bodywork is simply cut down to the maximum size permitted by the regs.
Spec highlights include a Yoshimura exhaust system, WP suspension and Renthal FatBars.
This particular model was a leap on from the K5 and features a close-ratio gearbox, slipper clutch, improved brakes and excellent chassis balance. I used to have one on the road and I’ve ridden them on track a lot too. I always loved them before, so I’m really looking forward to racing this bike.
More pics will follow once all the graphics arrive and I’ll make a gallery in the photos section of my site which will later include detail shots and pics of the various stages of development.
The 2008 season was my novice year, and I entered Thundersport’s top class, GP1, on a GSX-R1000 K4. Racing on a shoestring, with no back-up at all and riding the oldest bike on the grid, I scored strong results against fierce competition. These performances earned recognition and praise from commentators, organisers, and rivals alike, culminating in the club’s Rookie Of The Year award.
