1989 Team Suzuki Suzuki GSXR1100 SLINGSHOT

In 1989 Suzuki moved away from the Slabe-Side GSXR series to the new Slingshot chassis. The new bike featured a big bore motor now 1127cc, bigger carburators, and a dual exhaust. The bike was much more compact , had more horsepower but it also gained a few pounds along the way. The forks were upgraded to a new cartridge style 43mm Kayaba and out back there was a remote reservoir shock. These bikes proved to be virtually indestructible. The oil cool in-line 4 cylinder was a breeze to work on and responded terrifically to modifications. I had several of these bikes over the last 25 years and was never disappointed. This particular example came out of Florida. It has very low miles and is completely stock except for a Fox Twin clicker shock and Progressive linkage. The rear suspension was one of the areas that truly needed addressing and this modification cures all handling woes. Other than that we have exceptionally clean stock Slingshot. The body work is near perfect, the stock exhausts are rust free and the paintwork is great looking. The bike runs flawlessly and would only need a new set of tires for it to be road worthy as these are the original Michelins that came on it 28 years ago! You will not be disappointed with this addition to your collection.
