Parts Bin: Just A 2000-03 Suzuki GSXR750 WSB Spec Engine

Parts Bin:  Just A  2000-03 Suzuki GSXR750 WSB Spec Engine

 

Oh my!  This is what dreams are made of and what shrinks wallets.  I want to know what RSBFS reader doesn't dream about putting some exotic,  one off parts on his/her bike.  Well,  how about a whole WSB spec,  Suzuki GSXR750 engine?  I am a mere amateur at identifying  works parts but have seen a few featured on various sites.  The reason I mention that is that this engine has an XRC engine code stamped on it and that is a new parts code to me.  XRO  generally designates Suzuki works parts and  ERO being the identifier for kit parts.  Experts please chime in here, what exactly do we have here with an XRC code stamped on it?  My amateur eye says that it  is a works engine and not one composed of kit parts.

 

LAST MINUTE UPDATE

I spoke with one Speedy Sie ( screen name from the PerformanceBikeForum), who is a UK based Suzuki fanatic who is the most knowledgeable person I know on Suzuki works parts.  To sum up what he told me:  this is the real deal, it is extremely rare and very, very reasonably priced.  The XRC code is the code used on the last engines produced before Suzuki went to 1000cc.  Perspective buyers, he also added he knows of someone in North America with some works throttle bodies they might be willing to part with!

 

I know there are some boys in the UK that can ID this stuff.  I wouldn't say they are abundant but you sure see more works parts make it to the masses there than most places.  I do know the clutch can be an identifier to the actual spec of the engine.

 

Here is the story from the lucky seller.  Why is he lucky?  He has two of the damn things!

SUZUKI 2000-2003 SUPERBIKE GSXR750 WSB Spec Motor Complete.  XRO, ERO. XRC

Yes, this is an A spec Top tier factory team fully built GSXR750 XRC race motor.  170bhp, with all the factory bits installed.  Nearly impossible to find.  This engine was bought from the U.K. this way already to go and was assembled by the Factory Suzuki Team.  If you opened it up it would contain the following for example:

  • Lightened crank,
  • Titanium Connecting Rods
  • Titanium Valves
  • Worked Head, with factory only adjustable intake runners.  Shown as Blue anodized in the pic.
  • Custom Cams with 14:1+ Compression
  • Dry Clutch
  • Magnesium Deep Sump oil pan
  • Magnesium Starter cover delete.

Cost for these individual motors cost in the $80k-$100k range per engine depending on who you talk to.

This motor would be great for any Superbike collector, and or yes it could be installed to a street bike with some modification’s done to make it work.  Not for the faint hearted!!  Or you could complete a ground up Superbike replica.  Please note this is not your average GSXR750 motor, so reserve is set accordingly.  If you want a $400 GSXR motor go look elsewhere.

We will ship overseas, but buyer is responsible for actual shipping cost, which will be calculated after purchase.  We may end listing early so don't wait!  It is listed elsewhere..

Once again this engine was not assembled by us!  It came this way from Suzuki.  Thanks for looking and any questions are welcome.

 

 

 

The secret codes.  Alstare was running Suzuki's WSB program back in 2000-03 so I assume these engines would have come to the UK via Italy.  The riders back then were Chili and Lavilla.   Is there a possibility this an engine from a Suzuki BSB team?

 

 

Some Ti goodness hiding in there.  As cool as it would be to have this engine where do you find  something to squirt fuel in there?  It would be a fun search though.

 

 

I'm taking a pass on price because, well, I haven't bought a WSB spec engine lately.  Chime in guys, what is it worth to you?  The seller has an auction running with a BIN of $8,500.  I think the main problem is that it would be a crime to stuff that into your otherwise standard bike.  This would in turn lead to a long, expensive but fascinating journey to track down the rest of the works bike.  Think it can't be done?  Do a little investigating and you'll find several enthusiasts are doing just that.

SECOND LAST MINUTE UPDATE

Speedy Sie also mentioned the last Suzuki works engine he saw sell, sold for approximately $14,500 in Germany.  Check that BIN quickly!

Here is the auction.

Not The Limited, Not The RR: 1994 Suzuki GSXR750SP

Not The Limited, Not The RR:  1994 Suzuki GSXR750SP

RSBFS alumn and ZXR750R expert Doug found a gem of a Suzuki for us, a 1994 GSXR750SP.  This is the first SP I've ever seen listed for sale.  While the 1986 Limited and 1989 RR are the most sought after, the SP has them beat in the rarity department with only 200 being produced.  I know the lack of a solo seat throws off most people.  It just doesn't look like the homologation special it was built to be.  The pink graphics and blue seat don't help either.

 

 

Here is a sampling of what you got with the SP:

Large flatside Mikuni TRM40 carbs

Close ratio gearbox

Exhaust with increased flow

Magnesium head cover and case covers.

Thin walled forks

Lighter and more rigid swing arm

These items I believe to be on the bike but can't confirm:

Lighter wheels

6 pot Tokico brakes from the GSXR1100

Revalved suspension for racing

 

By 1994 the GSXR750 had become quite the porker compared to the original GSXR750 and even with all the features listed above the SP was only 2kg lighter than the standard bike.

 

 

The bike for sale sure looks like a mint example;  bone stoke and only 5.562 miles traveled.  The only draw back?  You guessed it: price.  The bike is being advertised at 16,995 GBP (roughly $26,500).  A steep price to pay but if you have the other two limited GSXR's.......

These along with the gearbox would have to be the highlights of the bike.  The RR and the SP don't have the dry clutch that everyone likes so much on the Limited.

 

Click it to own that last homologation special Suzuki built.

 

Sorry I don't have better images of the brochure but pictures and info is scarce on this one.

Featured Listing: One-of-Six 1994 Suzuki GSXR-750 SP in England

The 1994 Suzuki GSXR-750 SP was the third superbike homologation special Hamamatsu built on the GSXR line, but unlike the 1986 GSXR Limited Edition and the 1989 GSXR-RR, the SP was made special mostly for its rarity.

The SP lacked the dry clutch of the earlier bikes, and by '94 had swollen to 506 pounds wet, just a few lbs shy of the stock bike. It was still laden with special features, including four 40mm flat slide carbs, a lightened and stiffened swingarm and lighter forks, but came with a pillion seat, a feature that belied its world superbike credentials.

The flat slides helped the 750cc inline four spit out more than 110 horses, and the bike was good for more than 150 mph on the big end.

The GSXR-750 SP shown here is the third of six that were imported to the UK, and achieved some degree of fame on the cover of English bike rag Superbike Magazine, a hilarious and often lewd publication I used to pore over as a kid. It comes with a ton of original documentation, and a letter from Suzuki HQ in England authenticating its rarity and the date it was first registered.

The sale includes a DVD of pictures and videos from before and after the bike's restoration, and, unlike the majority of SPs, this one comes with a solo seat cowl.

From the seller:

FOR SALE

Suzuki GSXR750SP - 1994 WSB homologation special.
1 of 6 UK bikes imported by Paul Denning of Crescent Suzuki out of a claimed European production run of 200 (only 127 bikes officially listed). The only remaining UK bike and restored to original condition, this is the actual feature bike from period UK road test reports.

Full documented restoration and all correct with Mikuni flatslides, 43mm forks, braced swingarm, 6 pot brakes, 4-2-1 manifold and close ratio gearbox it is also supplied with ultra rare single seat cowling and all documents including correspondence with Crescent Suzuki to authenticate the chassis details.
Comes with its original clock set in European specification and an alternate UK clock set fitted with mileage set correspondingly at 18,000 miles.

A well documented bike in the UK magazine scene, serviced with current MOT and in turn key condition it's one to take to the odd classic meeting to get people guessing.

POA

Shipping/export welcome and can be discussed.

The 18,000 miles this bike has covered sounds like a lot for a racing special this rare, but with a stint on the magazine test circuit, it's not at all shocking. It carries an up-to-date UK Ministry of Transport (MoT) safety inspection, and the seller says it's turn-key and road ready.

Granddaddy’s Repli-Racer: Clean 1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750

The values the first Suzuki GSX-Rs have begun their inevitable climb into the stratosphere, but it is still possible to pick one up for less-than-stupid money. They are rare and sought-after in any condition, so you cannot expect to pay Craigslist-bargain prices for them, but they're attainable.

1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750 for sale on eBay

And you want one. The boxy. tri-colored fairing could only have come from a specific era in an especially loony decade. Before the smoothed-over soapbar fairings of the Honda CBR Hurricane pushed slippery shapes into fashion, Suzuki cut and creased its way to the unique, slab-sided form-over-function fairings we see here.

The bodywork is odd and gawky, but purposeful, so it works. And if the looks don't get you, what's underneath the plastic is ready and willing to try. The bike is built around an alloy perimeter frame that straddles an air- and oil-cooled 750cc inline four.

For its time, the bike was a featherweight technological marvel, sporting anti-dive forks on a bike that barely pushed 400 pounds without fluids.

This is example shows very well, though it sports a few blemishes, and has a smattering of non-original paint. The seller notes a raft of recent maintenance, including a carb cleaning, a valve adjustment and new fork seals.

From the listing:

Original super clean 1986 GSXR750. 49 state bike with clear California title. 13,200 original miles. Cosmetically the bike is extremely clean All original fairings that have been professionally repaired (standard cracks around mirror mounts) and repainted (only the cowl, side panels and lower. The rest are original paint & condition) in factory colors. All original hardware. No dents in tank. A little bubbling of air under tank decal strips on side (see pic) No tears in seat. The engine cosmetically is extremely clean. All original and complete. Good tires. Carbs just rebuilt. Complete service and valve adjustment just done. New fork seals. Has manual adjustable cam chain tensioner. Comes with original one. Runs and rides great.

* Bike is for sale locally so I reserve the right to end auction early

The bike is at $3,500 with a single bid and five days left in the auction. Grab it before the prices soar!

Slabbie Import – 1986 Suzuki GSX-R750 Limited Edition

The first few years of GSX-R750 production had a simple race-derived seat fairing and refreshing performance.  The 1986 update included a lengthened swingarm to tame the handling, and introduced a Limited Edition homologation special with dry clutch and solo seat.  This Japanese import is in rare Yoshimura colors and just under 8,000 miles.

1986 Suzuki GSX-R750 Limited Edition for sale on eBay

Thirty-odd years ago, the GSX-R750 broke a lot of new ground and was pretty close to an endurance racer with lights.  The air/oil-cooled 749cc's were good for 100 hp, and the small-tube alloy frame helped keep the wet weight within a gallon of 400 lbs.  18-inch wheels, 310mm brakes, and Full Floater monoshock combined to spell capability.  Fiberglass seat console and full fairing with dual headlamps had a no-nonsense look.

The year after introduction, the Limited Edition had all the nice things the race department wanted to use, dry clutch, 41mm forks with Suzuki's New Electrically Activated Suspension ( NEAS ) anti-dive system, remote reservoir shock, wider rear wheel, and a host of lightened assemblies.

This Northwest GSX-R is a special import, the red and brown Yoshimura colors jangling a bit with the black seat and exhaust, and gray engine paint.  The VIN indicates a machine for the Japanese market, as does the lack of reflectors, tinted turn signals, and lack of heat shield on the muffler.  The overall condition shows that it must have been ridden very carefully and stored or displayed with a curator's care.  From the eBay auction:

All of the body panels are in excellent condition, there no cracks or major nicks anywhere. The original Suzuki exhaust is in excellent condition with no scratches or dents anywhere, The wheels are also in excellent condition with good paint and no major chips anywhere. Even the windscreen is original and in great condition. Basically the motorcycle is a 9.5 out of 10 cosmetically.  Mechanically the bike runs and rides perfect, there are no oil leaks anywhere and all of the engine paint still has the original GSXR shine with out any major dings or chips. All of the electrical components work as they should; lights, blinkers, horn, speedo, tach, fuel gauge, all work properly. The bike just had a full service tune up including new tires, all fluids were changed, and mechanically everything was inspected and replaced if necessary with original Suzuki parts.

Offered by a vintage parts house, the story of how this LE came to be isn't told in the auction, so bidders will have to send a query or go on wondering how so few parts appear to indicate use or even to have aged.  Maybe the preservation or restoration question doesn't even matter much, but as the auction goes on and the "reserve not met" sign remains lit, someone will want to know...

Featured Listing – 1992 Suzuki GSX-R750

20161002-1992-suzuki-gsxr750-left-fairing

Not often seen on RSBFS outside of low-mile introductory-year models or factory racers, the GSX-R750 is the legend that launched a million amateur race teams.  As any long runner, the model has had its great and meh years, and this is an interesting one - 1992 was the last year of the air/oil-cooled GSXR.  The rest-of-world folks got a water-cooler that year, but the U.S. got a final year of the proprietary SACS two-stage oil cooling but new looks.  This lightly used example has been returned to former glory at a Gulf Coast Florida shop, and is ready for a show and / or ride.

After a 1990 engine and suspension update, the GSX-R750 revisions were light for 1992 and the "M" got a new valve train design using a rocker arm for each valve and supplied 115 hp.  Great handling from the alloy frame, 41mm inverted forks, and Full-Floater monoshock rear remained, fully adjustable for those with set-up knowledge.  Stoppage was excellent with 4-piston 310mm front brakes and 280mm rear.  The roomy new fairing was more aerodynamic as well as more comfortable.

With only 5,700 miles this Suzuki was a find, but the fuel system and cosmetics had taken the brunt of the twenty-plus years of downtime.  The owner describes the uncompromising way they were addressed:

When I got it didn't need a thing. Well me being me I couldn't just leave it alone so I started with the fuel system ) just as a precaution ( and knowing old fuel systems real well ) I didn't want to wait until it failed so I ordered four new OEM rebuild kits and complete fuel shut off , all new fuel lines for the shut off as well.

Also the ones that connect each carburetor, all new from Suzuki, ( NO ) aftermarket parts were used.  I did clean the tank with Yamaha tank clean.  Having said that it didn't get to the very top so the lip of the tank still has some left over dust from rust but only on the lip the rest of the tank seems ok .

It looks rusty on the inside but that's just how that product works.  I fitted the bike with new Pirelli Diablo's front and rear I also kept the old tires ,OEM I think, ( I'm not riding on tires from the 90's .

So that lasted about three months and I thought this bike would look its best if I had it painted the factory 1991 colors.

I called the best painter the sport bike world has ever known and asked if he could fit it into his schedule. He agreed, so me being me the colors had to be as close to a perfect match as possible. I also wanted every decal to be as exact as possible so he made all the decals himself. In the end the paint is better than new using only the best paint and materials.

The wheels I had powder coated to match. Then fitted with new seals and bearings, again all OEM Suzuki. This bike didn't have a scratch on it when I got it and it still doesn't. All other parts are original to the bike.

The owner also offers a Photobucket slideshow with some before, during, and after pictures here.

20161002-1992-suzuki-gsxr750-left-rear-wheel  20161002-1992-suzuki-gsxr750-binnacle

The idea of rebuilding and tuning four carburetors has likely scared off many would-be classic sportbike riders, but a pro has taken care of that here.  As well the paintwork, looking super and original, when so many are scarred up or rattle-canned.  Starting with an undamaged low-mile supersport from the last year without a coolant system, this owner has been careful to return to the stock looks and retain all the smaller parts.  This adds to the value now and as time goes on.  The owner asks $6,000 and Steve at Southwest Cycle can be reached at (239) 898-3050.
