Talking 2007 Gixxer 1000 Build

This is my official build thread for my Gixxer K7. On October 18, 2009 I did something stupid and wrecked my bike. The frame was damaged on a fairing mounting tab toward the front. My goal is to repair the frame and rebuild this beast into a fire-breathing streetfighter. This is the bike before the wreck:


And here's what it looks like now:



I'll be keeping stock plastics on the tail because I really enjoy riding with my girlfriend and don't want to lose that by bobbing it (which was my first thought). The bike will be gloss and matte black and I plan (although this may be too lofty for me) to add a round gauge cluster and integrate it into the plastic gas tank cover. It will have dual headlights and I may leave off the belly pan unless I can find one that I really, really like. New levers, rearsets, chain and sprockets will be necessary.

I don't think this thread will really take off until around tax time, but I tore it down to the frame today and wanted to start documenting my project. Cross your fingers for me - this is my first ever build!

Thanks! I'm glad you posted up pics of yours. I've been a little bit worried about how huge the radiator will look naked, but yours looks good. That helps.

I don't think the GSXR rad will look any where near as large as the one on my R1 does. Not stupid big but it's still pretty large. If it isn't already, I would suggest painting it black as that will help hide the size some. And put a radiator guard on it too.

Then I guess I can be thankful I don't have an R1.

I've got a Cox radiator guard that survived the crash, and I'll keep that on there. Painting it black sounds like a good idea as well. The less silver, shiny crap I have on the front of the bike the better it will look, I think.

Smile Re: 2007 Gixxer 1000 Build

Just got my frame back from the welder. I'll be piecing this thing back together from now until probably the end of the Summer. Who knows when it'll actually be street-worthy? Anyway, I hope to have a bike again soon!!
