Traded in my 97 gsxr 750 for a 06 1000

Left home today with the old bike and came home with a new one as you can see my wife was not to happy about it. I thought she would not notice since it was the same color , (kinda) but my plan failed. through in a carbon fiber Yosh TRS slipon and a powercomander on to the loan and I am all set to install after brake in.

is it normal for the engine to sound a little ruff, till it is broke in? it sounds ruff and then smooths out when I get the rpms up a little. I never had a real new bike.

Not really rought but very tight feeling is very normal.

Ride it hard after you warm it up, run through the gears all the way.


Congerats on bike. Feel likes almost double the power

No, that seriously is the best.





Ive broken in 8 motors total and 3 of which were after i found out about that and had a tighter seal and more compression than the ones that were broken in "easily" (aka per manual spec).

He's around... I've talked with him. The cliff notes... he's got a new perma g/f that he's spending time with... that's the way it is I guess.

First off on the trade. That's howt! Now dumb the reflectors, dumb OE stickers, and that shovel off the back.

Running ruff? What do you mean?

Are you sure its just not cammin? Could it be something to do with the exhaust valve on these newer bikes.. giving you a different idea? I know alot of these newer bikes run pretty clanky sounding. It has to do with leaning them out so much and squeeze out every available hp they can. Obviously the sound is going to change... hence one of the reasons Harley doesn't change their motors.

I went and put my 1st hundred miles on it with my bro in law he said it is the new exaust. What a change in everything compared to the 97 750
