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: 1986 Suzuki GSX-R712

The 1980s were a watershed era for sport bikes. This was a period of constant escalation between the Big Four manufacturers out of Japan. Amidst the fighting came many new innovations and a quantum leap in performance. And none epitomized the arms race quite like the revolutionary GSX-R from Suzuki. A winner in the showroom and a clear favorite for amateur and professional racers alike, the air/oiled cooled GSX-R was a definitive game changer for riders everywhere. Fast forward 30+ years later, and while the 80's era GSX-R is still striking, performance has not kept up with modern machinery. That is where this owner stepped in, creating a vintage 80s hot rod with performance enhancements to bridge the gap. This is an amazing build that we know RSBFS readers can appreciate; this one-of-a-kind machine has the stance and the history to give it serious street creds, but with updates to back it up in the canyons.

So how do you build a GSX-R712? Start with a good 1986 example of a GSX-R750 - well regarded as the best chassis of the day. Remove the 750cc engine and replace it with a second generation GSF1200 Bandit motor. Purists will note that the 1200 Bandit was an evolution of the GSX-R1100 engine, which makes this a perfect fit from a lineage perspective. Once that epic change has been completed, you then turn your attention to, well, everything. Rebuild the front end with new and upgraded components. Work over the swing arm and rebuild everything connected to it. Replace and upgrade braking components. Anything still stock must be completely refurbished. With the mechanicals in perfect shape, you then turn your attention to cosmetics. This is where little changes can make a huge impression. Source new lightweight bodywork and make subtle alterations to clean up the classic lines. Dress up the wheels and powdercoat to suit. Apply paint and graphics that act as an homage to the original, but modernize as well. Then step back and behold the glory of what you have created: a GSX-R712.

Bikes like this amazing GSX-R Rod do not come along often. This is mainly because this is a very expensive, time-consuming process requiring patience and know-how. Most riders lack both the cash and the skill to create something this stunning, but would not hesitate to drool over it (and lust for one). A bike this good makes a personal statement that tells the world that you have great vintage taste and yet you also worship at the altar of performance. It is also likely a losing proposition for the seller; I could easily see $10k worth of parts in this rocket, not counting paintwork or specialized labor.

Slab-sided Gixxers are HOT right now - we see both collectable as well as pretty rough examples on a semi-regular basis. And we see the occasional Limited Edition unicorn - with prices in the stratosphere. This particular example takes the basic slabbie form and uses it as the foundation for a real hot rod superbike. Think of it as a higher performance slabbie with the cache of an L.E., but without the price tag. There is no doubt that this is a special bike - something the entire RSBFS staff agrees upon. The conversion is super sano, the lines are amazingly clean, and yet the whole package retains the classic looks of the original GSX-R. Check out the large number of very high-res pictures. I dare you not to fall in love with this bike. Once you do, reach out to the seller (stathome@bellsouth.net). You cannot build this bike for the asking price, and you will never see another like it again. Good Luck!!

Slab with Spares: 1987 Suzuki GSX-R 750

As age takes its toll, even bikes that were fairly commonplace are getting rarer and rarer, a fact that is amplified when the many examples of the model in question were victims of racetracks, inexperience or bad hack jobs. The result is that bikes like this 1987 Suzuki GSX-R 750 are becoming more desirable and expensive, even in their most pedestrian guises.

1987 Suzuki GSX-R 750

To be fair, there isn't much that can truly be called "pedestrian" about one of the first bikes in the ongoing repli-racer wars, with around 100 horsepower out of an air/oil cooled inline four pushing about 450 pounds. The lithe perimeter frame, and stout brakes and suspension make for an impressive-if-dated ride.

This third-year Gixxer has covered just over 12,000 miles across three owners, and reportedly was stored in a living room for some of its life. Whatever the case, it has obviously been well cared for by all three people, as it shows just a few small blemishes and wears what appear to be brand-new tires.

The seller notes a list of spare and original parts that will come with the bike, including the stock airbox and exhaust.

From the eBay listing:

PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH ON VALUE OF THIS BIKES!!

1987 GSXR 750 in very good original cosmetic and running condition, please see pictures for the condition of the bike. fairings have minor nicks and scratches from normal use, NO Clear Peeling just normal aging. ike is good running strong condition and looks very nice overall.

COMES WITH;
STOCK EXHAUST,
REAR GRAB BAR,
STOCK AIR BOX,
SUZUKI REAR STAND,
PARTS BIKE W/TITLE
AND SOME MISCELLANEOUS PARTS.

I’ve owned various GSXR’s since 1987 so i’m very familiar with these bikes. I’ve had this bike since 2013; it’s been a pleasure to have it as it gets a lot of attention due to it’s condition as it’s a pleasure to ride it. from what I was told I’m the 3rd owner and the bike sat in the 2nd owners libingroom for over 18 years, I have put less than 50 miles on it as I only turn it on periodically, it’s stored covered in cool dry place.

Clean and clear California title. Please ask any and all questions before bidding!

With almost a week to go, the bike has attracted little activity with a $6,500 opening bid. The opening bid is toward the high end of what we have seen other bikes like it sell for, but with values of the limited edition bikes more than doubling this ask, it's not totally unhinged.

JDM Gixxer: 1986 Suzuki GSX-R750 Limited Edition

Honda's famed RC30 was basically designed from the ground up for competition, and seemingly only sold to the public to satisfy production-based racing requirements. That's one way to go about it, but if you don't have Honda's practically endless resources, how do you create a machine that will help your racers to compete at the top levels of production-based racing? You build something like this Suzuki GSX-R750 Limited Edition. In recent years, "Limited Edition" has come to refer to things like luxury trim packages for Toyota Corollas, somewhat watering down the cachet of the term. But in this case, it was truth in advertising, with just a few hundred made to satisfy the regulations.

The regular GSX-R was already a pretty impressive machine and, considering that the Limited Edition was the most expensive Japanese sportbike of 1986, you'd be forgiven for thinking that the performance of this rare and exotic version is underwhelming. But the changes were designed to allow their inclusion on race machines, not make for a better roadbike. The LE was just six pounds lighter than the standard bike, most likely a result of the fiberglass solo-seat tail section. Power was very similar as well, since the engine internals were virtually identical to the stock GSX-R750, and flat-slide carburetors are great for producing maximum power, but they're not really suited to everyday use. Fortunately, the LE's lightweight vented dry clutch should produce enough rattle to drown out the supposedly noisy carburetor slides... Aside from those notable and very expensive upgrades, the bike also featured a revised swingarm for improved stability and the electronic, anti-dive forks from the GSX-R1100, although I wonder if many race teams actually used those. Photos of our recent GSX-R AMA Superbike suggest that at least some of them did...

So out of the box it didn't necessarily perform any better than a stock bike, and was hideously expensive. But honestly, most manufacturers of homologation specials probably weren't too concerned about selling them: I'm pretty sure the rules only required that they build the required machines, so if they sat in showrooms for a few years, manufacturers wouldn't lose any sleep over it. Collectors and enthusiasts with the money to buy them still did so, regardless of cost, but the main goal was to get the right parts legalized for the racers.

From the original Craigslist Post: 1986 Suzuki GSX-R750 Limited Edition for Sale

1986 GSXR-750 Limited Edition in Japanese Domestic Model Specification
Suzuki only produced 500 units world wide of the GSXR750 Limited Edition

The bike is imported from Japan.
Not registered yet in the U.S.
This bike is sold without title. (NO TITLE)

Start engine! Runs well
Flat slide carburetors
Dry clutch
Original FRP rear seat cowl

24,374 km (15,145 miles)
Engine Number R705-125561

$13,800

The last Limited Edition GSX-R750 we featured on the site was also a Japanese import in similar colors that were intended to celebrate Suzuki's success at the 8 Hours of Suzuka, but this appears to be a different bike entirely. First-generation "Slabbie" Gixxers are already increasing in value, and nice Limited Editions are starting to command premium dollars. The lack of a title could prove to be a hassle, but many people considering a purchase will be looking to collect or display, not actually ride it, so that may not be all that much a problem. The $13,800 asking price seems in line with recent LE prices, but I wonder if the lack of title will have any impact on its value.

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.

If you're interested, the price is available upon request from the seller directly: tub2@icloud.com
