Best of the oil cooled (non limited) 750s – Suzuki GSX-R 750 (in Belgium)

The oil cooled Suzuki GSX-R models are sought after by many enthusiasts. The engines of these bikes proved to be very reliable despite the extra mechanical noise given by the absence of thicker water insulated walls. The oil cooling system coupled with thin fins for better exchange with air proved a smart solution to keep weight low. Suzuki reckoned that having water cooling would add 5 kg. Beside the limited and extremely rare RR models, this 1990 edition is one of the best in the series. The version is powered by the long stroke version of the 750cc  motor (better low down power) and it uses for the first time the USD forks. There aren’t many on the market with less than 25000 km on the clock and incluing the beautiful single seat rear cowl like this sample found in Belgium:

The model code of this version is: GR7AB The bike seems in pretty good condition and it is 100% original.

The original rear passenger seat is also supplied by the seller who describes the bike with a motor in very good condition:

The bike had 1 owner from new and it is on sale at a fixed price of about 3200 $. It is located in Belgium.

A Limited That Makes You Say “Hmm”: 1986 Suzuki GSXR750R Limited

A Limited  That Makes You Say “Hmm”:  1986 Suzuki GSXR750R Limited

Hmmm, wire wheels.  Purists and collectors look away.  Yep, the swing arm has been changed.  Yes, the over sized muffler is  odd.  Hey everyone has different tastes and if you don’t like it you need to get over it because if you are hunting a Limited, you know they are far and few between.  This is one of the more unique ones I’ve seen, read on.

This one has a German accent.  It began life in Germany before the seller moved here to the U.S.  The bike is currently in North Carolina.

 

Hmm, the wheels definitely catch your eye.  Here is the story on them:

The wheels I had special made by a firm in Germany (WIWO)  they are numbered and dated 1994. They are 3.5 x 17 F and 5.5 x 17 rear  The tires are 120/65/17 fr and 180/55/17 I have run Metzlers without any problem.  They wheels are certified tubeless.  The rims are AKRONT. There is no damage to these wheels and they run true

 

Hmm, a shorter swing arm.  The seller does have the original though.

This bike is outfitted with the short 1985 swingarm giving a 55″ wheelbase.  There has never been any wobble or shake at speed.  This bike will allow you to stand on the pegs and drive perfectly straight ahead

Hmm,  that is a big muffler you have there.

The exhaust is a 4-2-1 stainless system custom made to fit this bike by Shaefer Racing in Germany. The Ackropavich end can was added to keep the bike road legal.

Clankety, clank, clank goes the clutch.  The seller says he has some spares for the dry clutch.  Those could be worth some money depending on what they are.  Those dry clutches are quite valuable pieces nowadays.

 

The info on the carbs and engine:

T he eurospec flatslide carbs have been precision CNC bored to 33mm and they have been expertly jetted.  The motor is on the original bore however the cylinder head was fitted with Yoshimura 1mm oversized valves and a Serdi blended 3 angle valve job performed to correct the factory valve jobs which were not very  accurate.

 

Hmm, she isn’t original and has a couple of odd modifications  but if you are looking for a rider and not a collection piece you should still be interested.  Different wheels, swing arm and muffler and you are  in business.  Heck, if you are a wire wheel man then you are loving life.  The bike does not appear to be neglected in any way.  What price will this Limited fetch with clean and original Limited’s selling for $10,000 to the low teens ?

 

Check out the auction.

 

The seller has posted a video for your enjoyment.

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.

Rare, Rare, Rare…Suzuki GSX-R 750 R 1986 Limited Edition

A truely special and limited edition race replica motorbike: the 1986 GSX-R 750R LE:

This bike is one of the most exclusive Suzukis ever built. These days a few of them in close to new condition have appeared on the market and I was lucky enough to grab one myself. The above sample is sold via eBay in France but the bike is located in Sion in Switzerland. It is a Swiss edition which included a few adaptations to be able to be imported in Switzerland. These include 2 restrictions, one on the carbs inlet and one on the exhaust. The easiest way to recognize that it is a country special version is by checking the RPM counter: the Swiss edition starts with the 0 RPM at the bottom end instead of the 3k mark used on other versions:

To me, the Limited Edition is just as prestigious as an RC30 and while an exact number of models produced worldwide is not known, it is believed to be in the range of the 500 samples.

What is peculiar about the LE: to start with the bike has a competition derived dry clutch. It is said that the discs are the same as the ones used on the actual 2 stroke GP bike and therefore have always been very expensive (that is 2000 $ for a complete set !). The clutch isn’t built anymore by the OEM and collectors have been piling up stock and grabbing any clutch set they can find on the market. Few and I mean few, are still available if you look in the right places. The LE also features a hand made rear glass fiber single seat unit which, together with the seat itself, was made for this model only. Headlights were upgraded and the front fork anti-dive system is now electrically controlled through the front brake lever sensor instead of the previous hydraulically actuated system as used on the Katana. Want to hear how a dry clutch Suzuki sounds like ?

Here is a demo with a Schüle exhaust system (still available form Mr. Schüle himself in Germany today, check his website) fitted on (look for the last bit of the video and listen… just listen to this amazing combination of GSX-R engine sound with the mechanical rattle of the dry clutch !):

1986 LE sound

Back to item on sale…as you might have noticed form the picture of the tacho above this model has just 1520 km ! The pictures below further sustain the seller’s short description:

Comme neuve Km 1520 toute d’origine

 

If you wonder how one of these feels to drive I can give you an insight: basically unlike modern bikes you do not sit on top of it rather you sit “in it”. The seat is comfy and you arms are stretched toward the clip ons. Bikes of this age used 18inch wheels, add to it a long wheelbase and this adds up into a different riding style to what you might be used to nowadays. Basically you need to start entering a corner earlier and foresee a generally more round trajectory. Forget hard brake, turn in, square out and full gas (if you have traction control) of a modern let’s say RSV4 or Panigale. Nevertheless I love the feeling of driving the Limited. First of all you feel back in time with your head fully protected from the wind by the large bubble scree Being stretched along the bike when turning into a corner you are part of the bike and tend to move much less around the seat as you’d do on a recent super bike. Also the fact that you need to think and focus as you draw larger and more linear trajectories and having much less braking power, this all contributes to a truly involving and greatly rewarding experience. Add to it the amazing sound (not with the original exhaust though which is ultra quite), the view of the rev counter in front of your eyes, the light weight of the bike and the smooth and quick gearbox and you are in for a unique experience.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The bike on sale has currently a bid at 10.500 EUR and the reserve

price is not indicated.

If you are a collector…buy it.

If you are a bike enthusiast…buy it.

If you even don’t care about bikes, you should still buy it

as in these times of Euro crises this will be your best investment !

Forget Something In 1986? Zero Mile 1986 Suzuki GSXR750R Limited

Forget Something In 1986?  Zero Mile 1986 Suzuki GSXR750R Limited

Don’t blame me for being a tease, this left over from the 80’s was found by my Aussie apprentice Chris (yes, that means it is in Australia).  All of us can appreciated a sweet left over like this and dream a little though.  Chris says only 10 were imported to Australia back in they day making it an extremely rare item down under.  I can’t say I’ve even seen a zero mile Limited for sale here in the states.

Anyone booking a ticket or looking at shipping rates yet?

 

I want to meet the guy that has had this thing for all these years and hasn’t ridden it at least once.  Picture a perfect cool and sunny spring day and this thing sitting in the garage and just walking by it.  The only way I could pull it off is if I had purchased two of them.  One to ride, one to stare at.

 

I’m probably a little off on my numbers but I want to say the dry clutch alone on these has been selling for $2,500 to $3,000.

 

As you would expect, the seller is asking the moon for you to remedy your mistake of not buying one in 1986.  He is asking $30,000 OBO.  It is a straight classified ad though and not not an auction.  If you’ve got the coin and the desire click here.

’02 Suzuki GSX-R 600 Telefonica MoviStar Limited Edition

Location: Wilmington, North Carolina
Mileage: 15,973
Price: Auction, currently at $3,100

I think everyone probably knows by now I’m a Suzuki fan. And I’m a sucker for anything that has special fairings and graphics. Up for grabs here is a 2002 Suzuki Telefonica MoviStar Limited Edition. With special livery (that term cracks me up) that’s a replica of the RGV-500 Kenny Roberts won a title on, this bike doesn’t look like your run-of-the-mill 2002 GSX-R 600. However, outside of the graphics the bike underneath is your standard 2002 GSX-R 600 (not that that’s a bad thing).

From the seller-

Up for Sale is my 2002 Suzuki GSXR 600 Telefonica MoviStar Edition. This version of the Telefonica was only made in 2002 and a limited number were made. This bike is pretty rare and also is highly sought by motorcycle enthusiasts.

I have been the proud owner of this bike for the last 3 years and I am sad that I have to sell it. I haven’t had much time to ride it the last two years and I am preparing for another move so unfortunately it is time to sell.

 The bike has a NY title (if that matters to anyone) and will come with a lien release.

 Since the bike has not been out much the last couple of seasons, I recommend that the following be performed after purchase:

1. Oil Change (has been sitting without much use)

2. Brake inspection (may need new pads, I had it out today and the brakes seemed thin).

 As far as condition, this bike is in pretty good shape. There are a few nicks and scratches in the paint but this is to be expected with normal wear (I have included photos). There is one spot that is pretty noticeable and that is on the muffler. This occurred during transport and not the result of a crash or lay down. 

 Now with all that being said, I want to mention that this bike has never been crashed, or dropped. I have taken pretty good care of it over the years and I would like to see it go to a good home.

 Please let me know if you should have any questions and good luck bidding on this beauty!

 **PLEASE NOTE, this Bike is also available locally for sale, so I reserve the right to cancel this listing at anytime prior to auction end date. **

Here’s some more pics-

Considering the mileage, this bike looks well cared for and the seller highlights some of the cosmetic blemishes (in photos) from the wear and tear of owning the bike. The seller also highlights some immediate maintenance that should be addressed if you purchase the bike.

There’s no reserve on this auction so it will be interesting to see where it goes. Another bike similar to this was up for $4,000 and sold, although I don’t know for exactly how much. I would guess this bike would go somewhere near that.

While this model doesn’t come with any performance goodies to go with the good looks, it’s a great bike that will perform well from the factory. Seems like a good opportunity to own something special without breaking the bank. You agree? Okay then, check out the auction!

Step Right Up Folks, 1986 Suzuki GSXR 750 Limited, 99.9% Stock

Well, we’ve seen a few of these floating around recenty so at least we have some data on prices vs conditions, just search “1986 Suzuki GSXR 750 Limited” on our site and see.  I just love these bikes because back in 1986 I almost bought one but opt’d for the GSXR 1100 instead (stupid me). A plus for anyone’s cool collection these babies are indeed RARE . This one looks like a fairly tidy example and it’s pretty much all stock except the windscreen which is the way you want them. Located in BC Canada and is on Ebay now so jump on over to join the bidding.

The ad (which gave me a head ache) reads…..

Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.

After many years of owning this rare and exotic bike , I am willing to let it go for the right price. After getting a letter from Suzuki USA stating the rarity of a bone stock  LTD gsx-r 750 , this is what they said. Suzuki produced 5,000 of these bikes in 1986, aprox 4,000 were used for track purpose and were never returned to the street, leaving aprox 1000 of them in street form, of that 1000 ,aprox 500 of them were destroyed in crashes, leaving 500 of them in street form. Of that 500, their guess is that at least 400 of those 500 were modified and never returned to STOCK , leaving aprox 100 of these rare and beautiful unique bikes in street form. Of that 100, aprox 50 of these bikes were up dated and modified with up to date parts (forks,wheels,pipes,ect,ect) leaving aprox only about 50 in the world in BONE  STOCK trim, meaning , all the stock warning labels are still in place, stock mirrors are still on the bike, signals have not been altered, mud guard’s are still intact and not chopped.

Now we come to my bike, a Bone Stock 1986 GSX-R LTD Eddition with dry clutch and flat slide carbs from the factory,nothing altered except for the aftermarket windshield. This bike was also offered with a rare (because of the $300 price tag) FACTORY pit/race stand (seen in pictures) Seem’s not to many people wanted to drop the extra $300 after spending the $8500 back in 1986 for a mere stand with a badge on the side of it saying GSX-R but that makes it just that much rarer. This bike was professionally stored back in 2000 with the gas drained from the tank and carbs the inside sprayed with an oil like fluid to prevent rust( and it worked flawlessly) the bike has been in my heated house for 8 years and at the local Suzuki dealer for the last 2 years hanging from the roof on a secured platform. With only 22,000 kms (aprox 12,000 mi) this is going to be one of the lowest mile GSX-R LTD ED you will find ! The 2 things that are not perfect on this bike are a small dent the size of a pencil eracer on the tank (sorry I don’t have a pic of it, but I will send a pic to the interested buyer if needed) and some light scratches on the lower body pannel from falling half way over against some plywood in my garage(never did hit the ground) This bike has been carefully ridden and maintained since new and is a verry rare find. I will crate it in one of my spare Ducati crates and help with shipping arrangements.  reserve is set a 1986 showroom price.     

 

So, what’s really cool is that I’ve never even seen the rear track stand, I’m impressed! I think the price at $8500 was in Canadian dollars back then because I do remember these bikes being $6500 US, I may be wrong but that’s what I remember because I thought “why would I want a $6500 750 solo seater?” at that time. Anyway the bike looks nice but not prestine and the miles are okay, so I think (and I repeat) “I think”, the bike should be somewhere about the $7000 US mark. So chime in and tell me I’m wrong, right or waaaay off 🙂

Ciao for now….Jay
