Default A noobís 93gsxr build

Always wanted a streetfighter and just picked up a 93 gsxr. Not new to motorcycles but new to a streetfighter build.



It came with the following parts as extra:

- a second set of fairings
- 2 extra sets of carbs
- a second wiring harness
- a second exhaust pipe and header
- a second gas tank
- a second radiator
- a second cylinder head missing one valve
- a bunch of other stuff

It has been sitting for 1 and half years but was running before being parked. I will make sure to go through the
Beginnerís guide for whatís needed to get done but will probably need some help along the way.

This is going to be a slow build and the goal is:

- strip it down
- Remove the whole current subframe and build a shorty one seater setup
- riser and handle bars
- Possibly lift the whole bike (front and rear) just a little

I have a couple of questions

1- for riser handle bars, do I need or is it better to get a different triple tree?
2 - how can I lift the front of the bike?
3 - how can I lift the rear? Is it a matter of using a longer shock? Is so which one would you recommend?
4- for the subframe design I have in mind, I could use a flat seat. Suggestions?
5- should I look into replacing the rear swing arm with a braced one?
6- anything worth looking into while itís apart?
5- any other suggestions?

Any help is truly appreciated! Thanks!

1- for riser handle bars, do I need or is it better to get a different triple tree?
Easiest to use generic risers that you bolt to newly drilled holes in the upper triple to give yourself a more upright position. Shouldn't be necessary to get a new triple tree.

2 - how can I lift the front of the bike?
Longer forks, not necessarily easy. Taller tire, farily easy if you're running something small.

3 - how can I lift the rear? Is it a matter of using a longer shock? Is so which one would you recommend?
I forget if this is a dog bone set up, in which case a shorter set will usually lift the rear. One of our GSXR folks should know better on this.

4- for the subframe design I have in mind, I could use a flat seat. Suggestions?
A little curve up in the back helps hold you on the bike... definitely up to you and how you plan on riding her.

5- should I look into replacing the rear swing arm with a braced one?
No need unless you want the looks.

6- anything worth looking into while itís apart?
Worth while to clean everything and check for damaged parts so you have a baseline of what you're working with. If you can spare a hundred or so dollars, replace the bearings in the wheels, swingarm and steering stem. Check the rubber components of the fuel and air induction system. Replace your fluids and filters. Once you have her back together, ride the piss out of her.

5- any other suggestions?
Post LOTS of pictures!

Default Re: A noobís 93gsxr build

Started taking the bike apart and seeing what I would need. Will post pics later.

Apologies for the noob questions below.

1- where do I find a good set of new left and right throttle assembly that will fit.
2- what newer rear shock with integrated expansion chamber would filt?
3- recommendation for risers?
4- recommendation for handlebars?
5- what special tool (and size) do I need to remove the swing arm and top triple tree?
6- which extended front brake line is a direct fit?

As always, thank you for any help!

1- where do I find a good set of new left and right throttle assembly that will fit.
Ebay is the easiest place to source parts, you can get your model specific versions or many other handlebar controls are easily adapted to work with a little wiring work.

2- what newer rear shock with integrated expansion chamber would filt?


3- recommendation for risers?
I use a set of ebay specials for $30 and they have been sufficient, I just had to drill the triple to install them. You can go very fancy and have a set machined or go on the cheap.

4- recommendation for handlebars?
BikeMaster makes steel bars for $30 with many different bends, I have been through several of them and they held up to a crash well enough to ride home everytime.

5- what special tool (and size) do I need to remove the swing arm and top triple tree?
A drift and a hammer to remove the castle nut or make a castle nut socket using a massive socket and an angle grinder (or file) and patience. I have used the hammer and drift method many times without ill effects other than slight marring on the castle nut faces.

6- which extended front brake line is a direct fit?
If you have a local hydraulic equipment supplier near you, I would go ask them how much it would cost to get a set of pvc coated stainless braided brake lines crimped to your specs. A local shop did mine for $30 each with my desired banjo fittings, angles and length.

Hopefully someone with more specific knowledge of your year GSXR comes in and answers with units from specific models.
