Bennetts calls the 1990 “arguably the best of the oil-cooled [Gixxers]”, as it got a tremendous amount of incremental changes from the previous year even though they look quite similar to the 1989 bikes. It was also the last year you could get a Gixxer with the exposed dual headlights, a style that many collectors prefer.

Suzuki fans like to call this generation of Gixxers the Slingshot, as the bikes used “slingshot” carbs. They were designed as a hybrid of flat-slide carbs and CV carbs, and the term referred to the shape of the slide. Plus, it’s just a great nickname!

The engine, suspension, body work, brakes, and even chassis all got upgrades, ending in a bike that produced 115 horsepower (49 state models) and weighed 425 pounds. The ’90 got a stiffer frame, longer swingarm, thicker front brake rotors, new 4:1 exhaust, Mikuni BST38SS carbs (2mm larger than 1989), lighter pistons, larger capacity oil pump, larger oil cooler, wider rear rim, and more. Most importantly, Suzuki went back to a long-stroke motor for 1990, which helped with low RPM torque.

We sold this example (VIN: JS1GR7AA1L2101992) a few months ago to a client who wanted us to turn it into a 7/11 custom (1100 motor in a 750 frame). However, he later found a custom CX500 here on Iconic that he liked more, so he’s letting this go without having ridden or registered it.

The odometer shows 51,121 miles.

It is equipped with a Vance & Hines Power Pak.

Aftermarket air filters.

D&D exhaust.

Second Look seat covers.

There’s a fair bit of scuffs/cracks in the bodywork. Photos of all known cosmetic issues are included in the album up top.

Before the original listing a few months ago, we had Ollie put this bike up on the lift, clean it up a little, verify that it ran, and pull off the front fender reflectors.

The current owner had us install new grips and bar ends.

Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California (please make an appointment if you’d like to view it), this GSX-R is offered on a clean Delaware title.
