I have owned an 88 GSXR1100 for 4 years and have covered a lot of distance, and here are some things that I have discovered. 1.The seat although excellent when moving around and hanging off the side is EXTREMLY uncomfortable on long trips. 2.The standard steering dampener is a godsend. 3.Pillon passengers like the bike, the long stretch to the bars means that the pillion can actually see something and the power can be applied smoothly. 4.Remove the stock exhausts even if it isn't rusted out already its bloody heavy, I have a Yoshi system and it saves almost 10kg! And it sounds great. 5a.If you have a death wish the 1100 motor will fit into a 750 frame. 5b.The motor can be bored out to 1340cc. 6.Progressive rate fork springs and an Ohlins shock make a huge difference. 7.If you really like to lean over a long way run a 160 tire at the back (I lent off the edge of a 150). 8.Wach the steering head bearings with the steering dampener its hard to tell when their warn. 9.don't hit a rock wall at 90Km/h it really didn't do the bike (or me) any good at all. I bought the bike as transport to and from work in the city (around 100km each way) and as some fun on the weekend and maybe throw in a few road trips. The bike performed flawlessly and I am extremely happy with it (apart from the seat on long trips I now have 2 seats standard and a nice soft one for long trips. The bike handling is excellent with the steering dampener soaking up any bumps dices and cats eyes. The motor can only be described as grunt. Its quite happy to plod along below 3000rpm all day. And downchanging is not required for hills which makes two up riding great, but if you fell the need there's plenty more on tap (in the wet the back will spin easily when you open her up and she gets to 7000rpm). The handling is great and is an excellent mach for the motor, although slow by today's standards is still quick with relative skinny rubber, there's none of the self steer that some of the newer bikes suffer. The standard 1/4 mile time was 10.25 which is dam fast for a stocker (remember the exhaust). The reason for this is that it is a long bike and therefore not very susceptible to lofting the front end, it can be lifted but the clutch suffers. Suzuki built the GSXR1100 to win the Isle of Man TT and it did holding the lap record for some time, this is probably why it handles actual road conditions so well.

I purchased this bike from my mechanic after a minor accident by original owner. Minor damage, plastic and scrapes but all easily repairable. Bike has a K&N stage 3-jet kit, individual air filters, Kerker pipe, and steel braided lines throughout. Repainted fire engine red, white powder coated rims. Very responsive, stable ride on street or highway rides. Wide windscreen protection shields rider on fast highway riding. After market side mirrors more useful for seeing behind objects. Throttle response is very raw - twist and it will respond with authority. Roll-on isn't as responsive but my bike needs to have the pipe changed to a V&H Supersport (perfect pipe for this bike) and re-tuned. I'm 5'7"-190lbs, comfortable riding position - tight racing position, better suited for average height riders. Long hauls can be taxing on the arms/body because of handle bar lean-tight racing seating position. Many upgrades available and definitely a must have bike - CLASSIC monster.
