    2016 gsx-s1000

    Hopefully getting off my R-E shortly (test booked) and i decided to have a look around for a reasonable R-Class bike.

    Decided on the GSX-S1000 as it's pretty much the only naked that i like the look of in blue.

    Purchased her last week, and have some parts on order so i won't get delivery until Friday.

    Sorry for the shitty photos... my greasy fingers must of been all over the lens that day.







    Organised with the dealers to get fender eliminator, yoshimura carbon fibre slipon, transparent wrap around tank protectors pads and the centre protector pad, and the instrument cluster cover for a total that was lower than the ride away price!

    Got a few parts already on order for the bike, mostly rizoma stuff.

    Mirrors:


    Grips:


    Barends:


    Footpegs:


    Brake and Clutch levers:



    Radiator guard in SS from radguard:


    Next up will be looking at suspension which i'm looking at the hyperpro street box kit weighted to my fat ass.

    I'm still deciding whether i should get a power command v to tune out the leaning below 7000rpm that's present in the GSX-S1000.

    I'm debating on whether oggy knobs are worth it or not. Do i get oggy knobs or case savers, etc?

    I've heard stories that oggy knobs can rip engine bolts and deform them and potentially the block/mount.

    I decided to post on here mostly to get ideas and advice on what to get etc, as i don't really know much about modding bikes. EG what are the first things you SHOULD get and what are useless mods

    case sliders/covers look better
    oggy knobs are effective but look shit once they start to fade & kinda look silly sticking out the side of a street fighter

    paulie803 thanks! I'll probably go with case sliders/covers since there isn't much fairings on the bike.
    Hillz, yeah man i've been eyeing it off since it was released last year, but that was no where near my 12 month-a-versary of my RE license. The blue just looks full sex to me, the others are just meh.

    Is the factory suspension adjustable? If so, look in to setting it up for your weight before you splurge money on new components. Put the cash towards a PC5 and tune first, even a quick shifter. Do the standard headers house a cat converter?

    Doesn't have to be one or the other - they both serve different purposes. I had oggies and still ground down the cases on a K9 gixxer 750, and an L1 gixxer 600. Oggies largely protect fairings, case savers protect cases.

    Factory suspension is adjusteable, to a degree, but at the moment my fat ass is pushing 135kg, which i doubt any factory suspension even caters for. Don't think so, i'm pretty sure the cat and the muffler are in the box under the bike. Im definitely looking at a PC5 though!

    Ah good! I was thinking there was going to be a horror story there. A good mate of mine (guy who pretty much shadowed me the most for my R-E and will probably shadow me for my R as well), knows Jared well, so i got a good deal me thinks!

    Fair enough! I'm still looking into crash protection stuff. I have none on the GS500, and haven't really had a crash, although i've got full comp for both bikes, and the s1000 is agreed value for 90% of the bike.

    Good advice either way, i'll investigate and think about what i get

    You can have uprated springs installed in the forks and rear shock. Be a heap cheaper.

    None potato pictures this time around!







    i'll follow your advice Loud, get some springs for it from Russell @ dynotime, and get a powerfc and tune will probably be the best bet.

    Next up is test on Friday next week. Pretty confident i'll pass

    Haha. Don't make rash statements. Its twice as embarrassing if you fail

    If you are of a less slim build absolutely definitely do the springs. It puts the suspension in the right working range so it won't bottom out on you and keeps the geometry where it should be so it handles like it should. If your happy spending dosh you could consider a valve kit while the forks are open but springs will be by a long way the best bang for your buck mod you can do at your weight.

    Happy to spend the money in the right places to get it performing where it should be for my weight (although working on getting that down anyway, but meh).

    VERY true on the making rash statements, but i have put 30,000k's on the GS500, and have done 3 lessons with instructor.... i HOPE i pass anyway
