I have a 1991 gsxr 750 with a 1992 1127 motor.the bike needs to be assembled and repainted.the motor has new rings and a new 2nd gear and needs to be put into the bike.the bike is fully polished and has pm wheels,nos,full yosh exhaust and a 1pc tail.best offer

Thats what the ad said. Aside from miles and if the wiring harness is included, what should be asking.

Also is the 1100 motor a direct swap into the 91 frame? What should I be looking for?

Also are oil coolers better than the radiators we have now?

Its a direct swap.... you just need 1100 headers that are a bit longer.... I have a set if you want them.

Also, you can run oil coolers on the water pumpers... also hydraulic clutch....have the parts for those too.

For what hes offering.... depending on condition 1800-2400 should be a good range.

i'd shoot on the low side. sounds like a drag bike. Call me untrusting but I always assume motor work done by other is circumspect. That being said getting a good slingy 750 rolling chassis with a decent 1127 would be sweet.

It most likely was a drag bike.... I would find the guys name and go on some of the Drag Bike sites and Gixxer.com and search....

I have to put it together. I've seen older 750 and 1100's goin for 1500-2500 completely stock. Does anyone know if "Performance Machine" wheels have any type of stamp on it for verification?

Nate, I may have him keep the can and the NOS. No reason for me to have NOS.

If the motor is off the bike, how would I see if anything's "wrong" with it? Or is that just a gamble I have to take. Considering he had NOS on the thing.

I know I'm gonna have to do some work, but would like to keep it simple for my blood pressure's sake.

edit: didn't even think of a drag bike

Its a gamble.... mine came the same way, and I had the motor disassembled for inspection.

well, considering he's running n20 on it, and he had fresh rings put in it, i'd assume he used the n20 quite a bit, and second gear is usually the first thing to take a crap on a drag bike. that 1-2 shift is stressful on the trans.

pm wheels should have a pm logo on the hub somewhere. just for future reference, if you have to replace the rear sprocket, you have to get it from pm, as the oem sprocket won't fit a pm wheel. pm only makes a handull of actual wheels, they just have different hubs that bolt in them to fit different bikes.

750 headers will clear an 1100, but just barely. i had micron 750 headers on my 1200.

if you put an 1100 in that 750 you cant get the valve cover off:)

as skrooz loose said the PM wheels need PM sprockets, not a huge deal but something to consider. You can tell a PM wheel when you see one and the good thing is if you ever taco a rim you can replace it and keep the hub. If i remember they also use adapter rings for sprocket/rotors, anyone comment on that? Anyways it sounds like it might be a good deal. 2nd gear goes out on those motors without nos all the time, mostly 2nd gear wheelies does it to them. To me it sounds like a project that never got to. id see how much stuff it comes with and offer the guy a grand, maybe $800 and let him haggle up from there. If they dont list the price they dont know what its worth

Some of the older PM wheels don't have the logo on them. But they are hand etched on the inside of the rim with a production date, style number I belive and have a serial number stamped in them.

Sprocket specialists offers gears for them as well. I belive there are 2 different ones. parts number Z502 and Z509.

All the new PM sportbike wheels use a ZX12 sprocket.

guy sent me a pic of the bike assembled, alot better looking than I expected. I may ask to see it. If it's all disassembled, and parts need paint, what $ are we lookin at?


btw, I really miss my old bike, I may have it painted the 87 blue/white/red colors.

I think it is obvious from the picture that it was taken back in like 1991 or whatever when the bike was nearly new. I am sure the bike didn't look like that any recently. That paint job must have been ten years old cus no one would do that after 1985 or so...... Atleast I am hoping, I could be completely wrong.

If you don't buy it. Post up here with details.

A 7/11 doesn't seem like the ideal drag bike choice. I'd say it's just a power hunger 750 owner.

If you go to look at it and he keeps calling it NOS, then walk away. The thing is probably roached. N20 is a substance, NOS is a name brand that makes kits. A motor can't run NOS. Just N20. ;)
