Description

Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

While the GSX-R750 debuted in 1985 for most countries, the US first got it and the bigger brother 1100 in 1986.

It was an instant classic – an aluminum box frame housed a 128 horsepower oil-cooled engine, and it looked the part thanks to the full bodywork. The dry weight was 433 pounds, an impressively low number for the time.

As Bennetts found in its review, “On the open road it was astonishing. Fast and torquey like nothing else I’d ridden, but nimble too, feeling like what I imagined a proper race bike would as it flicked from left to right on the smallest of rider inputs.”

This example is VIN: JS1CU74A4G2103588, engine #: U703112851.

The odometer shows 24,283 miles.

Maintenance:

In preparation for the listing, the seller had us replace the battery, change the oil and oil filter, clean and sync the carbs, reroute the ignition wiring, repair the front brake light switch, replace the taillight bulb, correct the turn signals connections, and replace the missing bodywork hardware.

We also performed a compression test; the results are as follows:

Cylinder 1 : 180 PSI
Cylinder 2 : 182PSI
Cylinder 3 : 162PSI
Cylinder 4 : 182PSI
