I'VE ADOPTED the PB ethos of im­prov­ing, rather than sell­ing my GSX-R1100. I bought this one for a grand on eBay, and it just about ran to get me home.

The front sus­pen­sion has been mod­i­fied twice by MCT to get it right. I up­graded the front brakes to later Nissin calipers and a Beringer mas­ter cylin­der. Rear sus­pen­sion had the same treat­ment by MCT, with an Öh­lins spring.

The mo­tor was bored out to 1107cc with GSX-R1100K pis­tons, the com­pres­sion raised, the head gas-flowed, plus a K&N fil­ter, RDT pro­gram­mable ig­ni­tion, Mi­cron down pipes and an ART race can, all set up by BSD of Peter­bor­ough. I asked for torque rather than top-end power and they cer­tainly de­liv­ered.
