I just installed a Yoshimura TRC slip on exhuast. I will be cutting the cat off as soon as I buy the power commander for it.

I also changed the stock tires to Michilen Piot Powers, which are excellent tires.

Other than that the bike is pretty much stock, performance wise.

Cosmetically, i just got some rim tape in blue. Shogun no cut sliders kit and I will be getting HIDs this weekend for it.

Most people here in L.A. just wear the jackets with Jeans. Very rarely do I see someone in a full suit...

Yeah, legs are overrated.


My suit's hard knee went through this van's headlight and punctured its radiator. With just jeans, I wouldn't have a knee.



My wife even has full gear to ride on the back of my bike.

Hey, I don't support it. Just stating what I see.

How much do those suits run about?

I have yet to buy a full suit but that is in the works.
EVERYTIME i ride i ride with at least jeans(if not the padded riding jeans), boots, Gloves, jacket and helmet.

I have yet to do track days as well, but i am aiming for that to change this summer.

I am also very big on gear. Its crazy seeing the amount of people who ride with shorts and a t-shirt.

I actually took the gear pic when i was thinking about selling my bike which i was including with it.

EVERYTIME I ride with my full suit. Hearing someone say they're very big on gear that rides in jeans does not compute. Of course, when you go to the track, a suit is required.

Have you ever heard of padded jeans? They are riding pants.
I dont do hours and hours of riding mainly because i dont have a group to ride with out here. I really dont get as much riding as i would like to.
Point is that i gear up, i guess with the exception of "leather" riding pants.

I have a pair of Draggin Jeans. Supposedly they are much better than regular jeans... but they don't really look or fit like jeans though, so I really don't ever wear them. I am in the market for a pair of breathable overpants like these airglides.

Nice looking bike Biglovemp! I test drove (or is it test *rode*) an 03 GSXR 750, and it was pretty sweet! He had an aftermarket exhaust, power commander, and some high flow filter. Very nice bike, but I ended up going with a CBR F4i...

Its funny cause when i got mine i couldnt decide between the two either. But i am VERY happy i went with this one. I love the color even more now. The blue and white is the traditional gixxer colors but not many have this white one. Either way you are good.

Were they both 08's? Any mods done? Significant price difference?

The white/ grey was an 08, the blue/ white was an 07. They were both stock and the 08 had been down so I stayed away from that one. I never got to see the 07 as it sold before I could get there. It only had 2300 km on it.

One mod I definitely want is a pipe (full system).

You def. want to try to stay away from a bike that has been down.

So you didnt end up with either one? Well keep looking and dont give up

I actually just bought a Yoshimura slip on for my bike and i am not to crazy about the sound. I got it cause i got an insane deal on it. I am searching for headers now on ebay. So next on the list is the headers so i could get rid of the CAT and a power commander which is a MUST to control the air/fuel ratio. That'll be another 1k easy so hoping to find a good deal on ebay.

Let me know how your search turns out...
