Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 2001 Suzuki GSX-R1000. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

After approximately a decade and a half with the GSX-R1100 being the top of the Gixxer lineup, Suzuki introduced the all-new GSX-R1000 for 2001. Journalists felt it was the first bike to compete with Yamaha’s revolutionary R1 of 1998, and Suzuki was able to top the R1 with less weight and more power (374 pound dry weight, 160 hp/81 lb-ft at the crank).

This example is VIN: JS1GT74A312101809.

The odometer shows 11,738 miles.

Per the seller, “this bike is in near perfect condition. Never down, everything is original OEM. This has to be one of the nicest, totally original, older GSX-R’s in the country.”

Yoshimura muffler and exhaust servo delete. “I have the original OEM muffler in perfect condition but was planning to keep one for the mufflers for another bike. It’s not a deal breaker.” If the winner wants the bike shipped with Haul Bikes, they will have to pay for the exhaust to be shipped separately.

Gear position indicator.

The seller states that this bike is “near perfect, and all paint is excellent and original. Near perfect. It has never been down. All plastic body panels are OEM original parts. No damage or cracks anywhere. Nothing has been replaced or repaired. No repainting or touchups. Everything you see is original OEM.”

He notes the following minor blemishes in the bodywork:

No damage, scratches, etc. to frame or other hard parts. OEM windscreen in excellent condition. Nice and clear. No dried up rubber or plastic. Passenger seat comes with the bike. It is the original part in perfect condition.”

Engine and Mechanicals:
Runs perfect. No leaks. No noises, no check lights, no smoke, no issues. Clutch and transmission work perfectly. Suspension is tight. No fork seal leaks. Brakes work perfectly. Chain and sprockets in great shape. Tires are in nice condition. Inside of fuel tank looks like brand new, flawless, no rust and super clean.

Recent Maintenance: The following was completed within the last two months:
Throttle bodies and vacuum ports cleaned.
Throttle bodies synchronized.
New vacuum lines (preventive maintenance. Originals were fitting a little loose).
New spark plugs.
New oil and Suzuki filter.
Cooling system flushed and new coolant/distilled water.
New air filter.
Front and rear brakes flushed. New DOT4 fluid.
Chain cleaned and adjusted.
New 91 octane non-ethanol gas.
The battery is pretty new.

The seller sums it up by saying “the bike is in amazing condition. Everything works as it should. Absolutely no issues. Runs perfect, rides nice and tight. Just as nice under the plastic.

As stated previously, the sale includes the stock exhaust and the passenger seat. It also includes a baffle for the Yoshimura exhaust and two keys.

Currently located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, this GSX-R1000 is offered on a clean Colorado title (please note that the equipped license plate is not for this bike and is only there for photo purposes).
