  1. Some NOS ones pop up on Eblag from time to time as old shops clear out inventory. The more popular ones you can sometimes find reproductions as well. If you can find the Suzuki logo decals for the tank, the rest should be pretty easy to do in paint.
  2. Some are drilled for mounting fairings, some aren't. Considering they're usually for looks on most bikes, sticking a fairing over them kinda defeats the purpose.
  3. Two piece upper fairing mount, mids bolt on to the sides of the head, and lowers bolt on to brackets that come off the lower frame rails. The lower brackets and head mounts are easy to get, the upper fairing bracket is gonna probably be pricy.
  4. I think there are some adjustable pegs on amazon and Eblag, but I’ve never owned a slabby, so not sure how the stock pegs mount on them.
  5. As others have said, there really isn’t much for those 600 lumps. They were the detuned small displacement version of an already detuned 750 engine. Keep an eye out for GSXF750 engines as they tend to be pretty cheap, and easy to swap GSXR cams into. Also upgrade that suspension and brakes on the 600F, they’re crap.
  6. Here’s that D&D exhaust. No real damage other than the can and hanger. Never seen any 750 exhausts like this, only 4/1s. No info on it either as I got it off a mate that got it with a batch of other parts.
  7. I looked at it some more after letting it rest for a week in the garage. Pretty sure if I swapped the stock exhaust hanger back on it would work, but still a really long exhaust. Also has some rash on the front of the can, so thinking at some point in the future I’ll drill out the rivets and cut it down a little. Still really curious about that 4/2/1 header, don’t remember ever really seeing those on 750s. I’ll post up a photo of the full exhaust off the bike later to see if anyone has any thoughts on it. For now though, I am running this exhaust. Yosh 750 header/mid that came with the bike and a carbon muffler off a 750w parts bike I picked up. Finally sounds like a proper GSXR750 again.
  8. I remember reading on here that they’re mainly bling, especially back in the old 90s era street fighter builds. Really only needed when doing extremely big displacement builds that can cut into oil passages in the block. I have a set that I’ve ran for a bit, but then removed. Might use them again at some point, but always just been bling on my bikes. I’m sure someone with more knowledge will come along shortly.
  9. That mid pipe is extremely long, but think I'm gonna try fixing a botched together Yosh system I have before I start chopping any more parts.
  10. I honestly don’t know what the hanger is for. I bought it off Eblag years ago, Ti hanger that may or may not be a yosh part. I’ll try swapping the standard passenger peg/hanger back on.
  11. Did some searching and I’m still leaning towards it being a slabby exhaust. Found this example, different header than mine, but the muffler placement looks pretty similar.
  12. Got an old D&D exhaust off a friend last year, originally thought it was for a 750W as it has the separate 2 into 1 headers and the 2 into 1 mid pipe like they all had, but the spacing was wrong. It’s definitely an oil cooled 750 exhaust, but the hanger is a good 9cm back from my race hanger. I only know slingshots, were the slabby hangers farther back? I’ve never been a huge fan of D&D exhausts, as they’re usually stupid loud, but was curious with the 4/2/1 header for a 750. Also have a yosh can that I might be able to make work with it, but would rather know what it is before I start chopping it up.
  13. Is the slingshot a 750 or 1100? Interesting that the 750W is lighter. Motivates me to do a swing arm swap sooner than later.
  14. Might want to go read the rules.
  15. I've seen reports on here of some people having weak spark or other running issues after switching to stick coils, which has been part of why I keep procrastinating on doing the swap on any of my bikes. It would be nice to know what works and what doesn't. I do remember being told R6 coils work, but can't remember what year they were. I think mid to late 2000s. Those magazine scans are what I remember going by originally as well.
