hey, everyone I have a 2002 gsxr 750 that I want to drop a 1000 engine and I was wondering on how difficult that would be and if I would have to mess with the transmission as well. any help would be appriciated
I'm sure anything is possible with enough cutting and welding. Interesting though. My friend wants to throw a 1K in his 600 but doesn't really know where to start or get a motor but at least he can dream. hahaha, sorry bad fingers!
Post up your results I'm sure a lot of people would be interested in seeing it.
i seem to recall GK having to make new mounting places on the frame, but other than that, I think it dropped right in. I could be wrong though. I'll shoot him a PM and ask him to come check out the thread.
the 1K motor will fit. when you drop the motor in, the 2 rear mounts line up perfectly. however the front ones do not. you do have to have brackets for teh front two mounts. you either have to make your own or buy them. crazy2wheeler at gixxer.com sells the brackets for $240. i personally made my own. all in all it took me a day to make the brackets and finish assembly. unfortunately i dont have any pics to show as a friend of mine has the pics and the ones that i had posted up got wiped with the site.
...come to think of it you could check the archives in the KC forum. the post may still be there
it will work it just take a lil time and no its not necessarily the better route to just buy the b***** bike, it all depends on your circumstances
