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.

Never this clean: 1998 Suzuki GSX-R 750 SRAD

In 1996, Suzuki endeavored to make its GSX-R 750 reclaim its spot atop magazine tests, superbike grids and riders' wishlists with a redesigned frame that aped the RGV500 grand prix bike, and the introduction of the now-legendary SRAD ram-air system. Two years later, when this 1998 Suzuki GSX-R 750 SRAD was built, they had grown up even more, throwing fuel injection into the equation, which meant the little demon made 134 horsepower in a 394-pound chassis. The results showed up in 1999, with Mat Mladin taking the AMA Superbike crown on a final-year SRAD.

1998 Suzuki GSX-R 750 for sale on eBay

This 1998 Suzuki GSX-R 750 SRAD is from the first year of fuel injection, and has managed to avoid being crashed, stolen, hacked or hammered in that time. The seller says it sat in a collection for a decade or more, which definitely helped keep it out of nefarious hands. Trawl your local Craigslist for one of these, and you will be treated to a Murderer's Row of aftermarket fairings, street glow kits, poor lowering jobs and gaudy extended swingarms.

This one isn't without its blemishes, showing scratches and some surface rust consistent with 12,000 miles, but it's a one-owner bike with a de-rigeur period Yoshimura pipe and frame sliders. Not perfect, but much nicer than most.

From the eBay listing:

One Owner Gsxr750 1998 Srad ,fuel injection.
Been sitting for 10+ years,sat in a collection :
New fuel pump
injectors
520 Race chain and sprockets
all fluids were replaced (Brake ,oil/filter...)
K/N filter
ELkA rear shock re gassed
new battery
front and rear tires replaced
The tires,chain sprockets,fuel pump and injectors have never been ridden on all New ...
Yoshimura slipon and crash protection added back in the day
The bike has not been crashed all OEM but due to 20yrs it has marks,chips on it please look carefully .
Single seat was put on it for the first time last week otherwise it always sported the passenger seat including the owners book and first regt (also with the bike)
Very hard to find a Clean untouched gsxr750 1996-99 that hasn't been butchered.
clean title on non op

The mostly clean fairings, new running gear and fluid refresh are all positive signs that this is one of the good ones. These bikes still haven't hit the collectible market with any force, but it wouldn't surprise us if that changes pretty soon.

Ready to roll: 1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750

Ah, the 1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750. There are plenty of reasons to love "slabbies," from their awkward-but-functional bodywork that signalled a move to full fairings for the sportbike crowd, to their no-apologies approach to out and out speed, to the fact that decent ones are fast becoming prized collector bikes. This example is a clean but well-used base model with no frills add-ons or special treatments. It's in a sweet spot where it can still be ridden and enjoyed, but will hold its value as these things get rarer.

1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750 for sale on eBay

With an aluminum frame, air-oil cooled 750cc four pot and a rack of flat slides, even the entry-level Gixxers were meant for the pointy end of racing grids, in an era when good amateur AMA racers could still rake in a pretty decent living in contingency money. And even if knee-down work wasn't your bag, Gixxers were top of the heap street bikes well into the 1990s.

From the eBay listing:

Good Running GSXR750 Slabside

has had some fairing work in the past but is original paint and nice fork seals done last year
carbs cleaned this summer and a new Battery installed last week.

The speedometer and odometer work correctly , sometimes the side stand light stays on
Can ship if needed in the USA for a flat Fee of $600

to an airport depot near you ( you will need to pick it up)

For the $6,200 buy-it-now, you'll get a clean and honest rider-quality 1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750. A collector and a rider. Can't say fairer than that.

Hiding in Plain Sight – 1986 Suzuki GSX-R750R Limited Edition

"Now why would somebody use this funky bronze paint on this GSX-R ?" you say, not the usual red/black or red/blue/white, but otherwise an -80's GSX-R750.  But this is a not-available-here limited edition in Yoshimura racing colors.  With several factory go-fast goodies, the GSX-R750R conformed to KISS endurance racing principles, taking light weight and reliability to the winners' circle.

1986 Suzuki GSX-R750R Limited Edition for sale on eBay

Suzuki capitalized on their air/oil-cooled experience and the new 749cc engine made 100 hp, hung in an alloy perimeter frame.  Despite having recently introduced the model, they extended the swingarm for 1986 by 25mm to calm the handling.  The Limited Edition features front suspension and brakes from the 1,100 cc model, including an electrically operating anti-dive system.  Other particulars include a monoposto seat and lightweight dry clutch.  18-inch tires are fitted front and rear, ostensibly to ease wheel and brake changes in the pits.

The outstanding condition of the paint on this LE initially had me thinking it was a U.S. model painted by the owner in Yoshimura colors, but apparently the mods are limited to the Öhlins monoshock and Cyclone muffler, along with some slightly oversized decals.  With 22.5K miles, a repaint is almost certainly somewhere in its history, but it is faithful to the original.  Not sure about the gold wheels, looking back shows them most often in white, but they look great.  From the eBay auction:

While I have changed a few things that does not mean you can not change it back. The Yosh stickers are noninvasive and have not damaged the stock paint. Yes, this is factory stock paint that was available in Japan. I installed and recently rebuilt Öhlins shock. The forks are polished and the brake lines are SS braided. I took a risk that, in my opinion paid off, by having the wheels powder coated gold. I wanted the bike to resemble a Yosh race bike from back then. The inside clutch side cover and Yosh covers were painted. The housing for the clutch actuator is NOS. I recently purchased it, removed it from the factory packaging and installed it on this bike. This bike has been gone through very thoroughly and it is ready to ride or store to admire. 

You can only pick two from the fast/reliable/cheap menu, and the GSX-R750R was expensive at the time, a result of low volumes of special parts.  Bidding has reached nearly $10K without nudging the reserve, so this will still be a pricey 750.  Maybe a more period-correct Yoshimura muffler in black could be found, but otherwise this is a pretty together and special example.  Guess you're only allowed two from the golden-age sportbike menu, when the choices are a nice stock presentation, a special model, and a pretty good bargain...

Featured Listing: Slick 1989 Suzuki GSX-R750 with fresh paint

Update: SOLD on eBay for $6,855. Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

This 1989 Suzuki GSX-R 750 is a rare bird in that it's all-original and unmolested, with the exception of a recent cosmetic freshening. It was born at the dawn of the truly modern sportbike, before TFT displays and complicated electronics made street superbikes deceivingly easy to live with. It wears 17-inch wheels that will accept modern rubber, and packs three quarters of the shove you get from brand-new Gixxers.

1989 Suzuki GSX-R 750 for sale on eBay

With steady but unrefined suspension and right-wrist traction control, the featherweight bike is fast enough to still be a true test of skill to hustle along, and comes with a very healthy dose of classic bike pedigree. As special-edition Gixxers climb in value, the "normal" showroom models will inevitably be pulled up, too.

From the eBay listing:

This is a very clean and unmolested 1989 GSX-R 750. I believe I am the 4th adult owner, previous owner was an engineer here in Southern California, the bike has always been garaged and well cared for. It survived the 80's and 90's without having it's frame polished, being raced or otherwise abused. Low original miles and in very nice shape. Few left like this anywhere, truly a classic.

Last year I had the original bodywork repainted at great expense. The original bodywork was un-crashed and in good shape physically but suffered from fading and the yellowing you will often seen on the decals. I left the tank and front fender original as they were nice...likewise the solo cowl is original Suzuki paint.

The bike is located in Southern California near Riverside, you are welcome to come inspect in person. Bike has a CLEAN and CLEAR California title that is NON-OP with DMV, no back fee's no issues.

Mechanically solid with low miles, carbs just cleaned a month ago, brand new Pirelli Diablo's mounted last month with ZERO miles, a new RK chain, fresh brake fluid flush and bleed front and rear and also has had a recent oil change. Bike is turn key and ready to ride. Everything works!

Very original with a few mods. Period correct Yoshimura Duplex header, a newer Yosh slip on exhaust, Factory Pro Jet Kit, has an 1100 rear shock as well as 1100 gauge surround. Rear wheel is from a 1990 to run a 180 rear tire.

I have a number of spares to go with the bike. An original uncut rear fender and blinkers off a Japanese model, the solo and 2 up seat setups, factory service manual, a spare 1100 rear shock, an new NOS upper triple clamp new in the box (original slightly scuffed) coils, mirrors, an OEM tool kit and probably more that I can dig up and include with the bike.

Very hard to find unmolested GSX-R's of this vintage anymore and prices are going up every year...and I do not think you will find one this nice cosmetically, have over $1500 in paint work alone, new rubber, spare parts etc etc....selling at NO RESERVE!! Don't sleep on this one!!!!

PLEASE EMAIL ME WITH QUESTIONS OR IF YOU NEED MORE PHOTOS AND PLEASE CHECK OUT MY OTHER BIKES HERE ON EBAY!!!

With a scant few days left in a no-reserve auction, this thing stands ready to be a great investment bike, and a fantastic mount for an old-school experience for the coming fall riding season.
