Default 98 gsxr 750 meets 08 gsxr 1000

my current ride is a 98 gsxr 750 fully faired. it has some mild mods. yoshimura carbon fiber trs. K&N, timing retard eliminator. power commander. mild port and pollish. mild skim on the head. -1 tooth in the front + 2 in the rear. and some other minor things but basically just like every other bike around.


i had the bike for sale for a bit because i wanted to upgrade to a 1000cc bike and something newer. after being for sale for probably 6 months and me still riding it all i really got were people trying to trade me beat up dirt bikes, lawnmowers, and other junk, i found an 08 gsxr 1000 without a frame, fairings, and a few other things. so the hunt was on for an 07/08 frame. after a few months of over priced junk i decided to just build what i wanted. out came the tools and then there were parts all over the floor.




next up was getting back to a rolling chassis. the 98 750 and 08 1000 use the same head bearings and as that is the only contact point between the frame and forks i assumed it would slot right in. turns out i was right. cant use the steering lock, steering stops, or the steering damper as it mounts differently but im not too worried about any of that. the stops are going to be cut and rewelded in a better location. the steering lock is going to be left as is. and the steering damper is probably going to be replaced with a side mount unless i can find a way to mount the stock 08 damper.
and before anyone says anything. yes i know my shed is a disaster. and no my frame and forks are not bent. the rear is on a pretty tall stand with no motor in it so it makes the forks look like they are straight up and down




08 1000cc motor waiting to go in

level one racing exhaust with titanium header


plans as of now are to cut the upper rear motor mounts off the frame and replace them with a bolt on steel mount, cut the front mounts down and use bolt on transition plates. got a set of levers for 40 bucks from a friend(pazzo, avs, or crg, cant remember) shorty black on blacks. got an 02 gsxr 1000 rear wheel as the 08 will not work with the srad swing arm. still deciding between the stock srad rear shock. the 08 1000 rear shock, and an 03 750 rear shock. the ride height would be lower with the 03 and then lower again with the 08 but i can swap the top mount to make up for that and shim if need be. still need to find some tires, sprockets, and a chain. fab up some pair block off plates, remove the set valve and patch the hole left. any input would be much apretiated. not really sure when ill be able to work on her next. full time job, daughter, no money, and lots of snow in an un heated tin shed with no doors.

i had thought about that but not without a good amount of cutting and modifying. the 01/02 and 03/04 swinger fit the srad but the 07/08 wont fit in the 01/02 or the 03/04. plus id rather keep the srad swinger in there. its an inch or 2 shorter i believe. still havnt decided on the bars yet. im probably going to keep my clipons for a while as i like that riding position and have a few sets that will fit the fork tubes. and i have a single headlamp im probably going to use for now. not sure on the tail either. im probably going to keep it a 2 seater as the lady likes to go for rides with me. i have an idea for a naked subframe but im not sure. that would let me unbolt the passenger seat section for just a solo seater. too many choices. i also have this pesky t3/t4 turbo sitting around, never been used. just need a bov and wg. possibly an intercooler too. not sure about oil lines yet either. hm. i also have a friend who said he would make me a set of upper and lower clamps to space the forks for a 180 or 190 front tire. but that would probably be just silly. still need to find someone to weld the bottom of the 08 tank to my tank so i can use the 08 fuel pump.

Love seeing engine swaps, definately watching this build.
