“L2 the new k5/k6 ? ? ?”

Written on: 21/08/2013 by Gravyd (2 reviews written)

I reviewed my k4 and k7 here on this thread (as davygravy but a new email address has locked me out) Now onto my L2 (2012) I've had loads of gsxr's since the late 1980's (yes I am now old and fat... but I don't let that stop me bouncing off the rev limiter during 2nd gear wheelies) No.1 The BMW s1000r (design based on the gsxr1000 k5) is the best sports bike at the moment it took the title from the gsxr when it arrived however !!!! The GSXR has evolved it is changing into a more practical… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/03/2011

I sold my 94 zx9r to buy this blue and white missile ! It feels like I'd imagine a fa18 to feel like in acceleration ! I didn't believe that in eight years bikes couldn't improved dramatically compared the the old Kawasaki! The zx9r was an awesome machine too , but in another league entirely! The zx9r kicked you in the pants at 8-9000 rpm and gee it kicked hard! Through the rest of the revs it was quite tame though. I Dont know if it's the efi or the cam differences or just the age difference… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/02/2011 by sandmacker (1 review written)

The K2 GSXR 1000 is a beautiful motorbike . Whilst I also own a TRX 850 (also beautiful) , the difference is as chalk is to cheese.To date I havn't ridden anyhing to compare it to. With the yoshi pipe , power commander , modded rear tail peice with a hugger , inset indicators , it got the looks and the get up and go. There's rarely a time I go out on the thing and not go over 200 260 kph. And she's still got plenty to go.
One thing I like about the K2 is that the fairing has this wide ledge… Read Full Review

“Gorgeous machine that needs a few tweaks to sing....”

Written on: 25/07/2010

Gorgeous machine that needs a few tweaks to sing. Anyone who has one or will be purchasing one needs to do two cheap, but priceless mods.

1st: remove the SET valve to get rid of sticky mechanisms and open up the exhaust

2nd: Get a throttle retard elminator to cure low RPM jerkiness and let the engine breathe.

Once these 2 mods are done, the K3 1000 floats like a feather and stings like a bee. The engine is the heart of this bike, with so much torque available throughout the rev range. The… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/12/2009 by alancables (1 review written)

If you compare this bike with any other bike in its class you are splitting hairs unless you are a pro rider and at this point all sportsbikes have their pros and cons. The GSXR has a very reputable track record that speaks for itself. You can always look on the good ol world wide web to look up these stats. I am not taking anything away from any other bikes out there but this is pound for pound my favorite and I have been on a vast selection of bikes. I AM NOT A PRO RIDER THOUGH! It also… Read Full Review

Stable handling, smooth power, nice ergos. Fun Fun Fun!
Bikes don't seem to have come as far as I thought they have after riding a demo zx10r 2009 model. The zx10r 2009 is definitely a better bike than the k3 in all ways, except I still wouldn't upgrade to one just for that reason. Suzuki GSXR 1000 is an awesome bike! Had it for 3 years (bought it mid 2006), and still loving it… Read Full Review

“Bought a Suzuki 1000K6, have worked in the bike trade...”

Written on: 24/06/2009

Bought a Suzuki 1000K6, have worked in the bike trade for 7 years and ridden most bikes. My Hayabusa got written off, so I went back to sports bikes. I knew I always got off of K5/6s witha smile, so I bought one. Not a moments regret, very quick, light,nimble and very stable - it's even pretty comfortable, a little tight on leg room, but that's not what I bought it for
It's over-kill for the road with sticky tyres, but hell it's good !
You have to keep youself in check a bit and have fun in… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/04/2009

I picked myself up a K2 GSXR 1000 last week after some numpty's decided they like my bandit 600 so much they would keep it. Holy crap Im blown away by the looks, power, comfort, coolness etc of the GSXR. It was raining out the night I got it and I was a little nervous of the back sliding out in the wet, not at all, silly me. The bike was stuck to the road.
I have ridden the K6 1000 aswell and personally I would prefare the K2. I just rather the lights and the few little bits and bobs done to… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/09/2010

Thanks for your imput .Looking to buy a K2 with a full yoshi pipe , remapped computer , and after market tail peice . In Blue it looks superb and the price is about what I can afford . 46,000 kms though is a bit high , but I get the impression they are bullet proof . If any thing is to go by , I'm ready to be converted lol

Written on: 04/04/2009 by BartleBFarstBlaster (1 review written)

Having ridden sports for in my collection for 30 years I was lucky enough to move to the Isle of Man where it is possible to use the performance of todays sports bikes. You notice on the TT course which bikes can cut it. I decided I was pushing my current ride too hard and a true sportster was needed, I tried all the top bikes in one day and for me the Suzuki GSXR 1000 was the tool. Forgiving plush ride yet totally unflapable and that engines punch is incredible. It will pull yards out of any… Read Full Review
