    Parabola (89 GSXR 1100)

    It has been a while since I worked on a project again, and I am wrapped to get my hands on an 89 Gixxer 1100 oil burner.

    Instead of a fighter I'm thinking of restoring it but with a few upgrades (wheels, front end, suspension) and paint.

    First thing though will be to get it running and registered.

    I will post up some pics tonight

    I think these are 38 mm carbies, any recommendations on which ones will be better?

    These were in a box, some kind filter for the Carbies I think. (I reckon they would be a pain?)

    Plan for this week is to get it running, fix some bugs and get it inspected and registered.

    Looks great Rod. carbies for the older oil burner bikes are easier to Tune than the W models I have read. But if this is a resto, than run the airbox. The panels will need it as the corner panel on the frame is held by it.
    can't wait for this progress to continue

    Yea, run the airbox Rod, it will be much easier. Those pods look like they are shit and would be a nightmare to sort, probably why they are not on there now. Are they singles as well? Even worse if so.

    The 40mm carbs were off the 750. The 1100 ran 36mm as standard as far as I remember.

    38mm.

    the slabbies had 34 or 36 which were good down low but ran out of puff up the top. The 40's were too big, the 38's were in the goldilocks zone, just right.

    Blue slip has ben done, so this is my thoughts:

    I want to replace front end ith K5.

    I want to purchase some Carozia rims.

    I need advice on rear shock?

    So not your typical restoration but I am hoping to build a Slingshot with modern
    running gear, Thoughts?

    K5 front would be sweet! Carozia Rims, dam they would be nice. Rear shock, all depends if your going swap out the rear swing arm for a K5 and try to run the K5 rear as well?

    Does anyone have any pics of their fuel lines going from the carbies to their Tank Petcock?

    They weren't connected when I picked it up, also which one needs the fuel filter.

    Also, when installing the air box, looks like I have to remove the carbies to get the air box inside the frame?

    Apologies in advance for stupid questions, your patience is appreciated.

    Just purchased K5 front end, as you can see in the first pic there is some damage to the preload adjuster cap. Anyone know where I can get replacements cheap?

    Nice one Rod, as for replacement preload, so another Ebay search in the USA mate, that's your best bet.
    Cool plate, but may they rip everyone now with these plates.

    Yep, that's the classic mate. I have only heard of one bloke (Mad Mundy) claiming he could remove the airbox without removing the carbs, but I've never managed and I wouldn't suggest it either without damaging something.

    I don;t have a photo to hand of the fuel lines, but I reckon Supercharger might. Actually, Google might be your friend here: https://www.google.com.au/search?q=g...dGhnhDZcRl4jM:

    Thanks Si, that is perfect.

    OK, I have a K5 swing arm on the way, K5 front end and Carro rims also being delivered from the states, so you might say the resto idea has flown out the window.
