    Well here she is :) not that much done to her except for a danmoto exhaust(loud as f***, also makes a big boom at high revs :) ), a juicebox(fi unit), solo seat and some other small bits.
    Already ordered a new oil filter, spark plugs, brake pads and some other goodies to be revealed :D

    Looks good! Why did you go for the 600 over the 750?

    Quite like the black rims, but I really want the BST carbon ones :) Someday maybe :p

    Was the best option for my budget, and the 25kw registered gsxr 750s are rare as f*** :p Also it´s got plenty of power for my addiction :)

    No... The sound will make you ermagerd in your pants :p But in time I´ll change it out with a racefit exhaust.

    Bought brembo sintered pads for street and track, they´re supposed to be quite good :) http://www.moto-racing.co.uk/item--Brembo-SP-Sintered-Pads-rear-Suzuki--Suzuki+Brembo+SP+RR.html http://www.moto-racing.co.uk/item--Brembo-SA-Sintered-Pads-front-Suzuki--Suzuki+Brembo+SA+FR.html


    Well it´s a really nice exhaust, and the sound is amazing. But mine won´t stay on for that long


    didn´t find it much of a problem, though the insane speed and acceleration seem to touch my inner devil way to much. And people who say the r125 is like a big bike could be more wrong, it feels just that more sturdy, better built and responsive. It´s also really nice to be able to cruise in sixth gear most of the time :p Almost no vibrations compared to the R125 and the feel of speed is much bigger :)

    I can imagine any aftermarket exhaust will sound nice with a gixxa, but full carbon akra sounds the dogs bollocks! I got a mate who has a K7 in relentless colour scheme full akra system and the sound makes you bust a nut twice! Also went to see a white and silver K8 with an akra sounded nuts

    The full akra is pretty insane, but in the end it´s gonna sound a bit like this :
    I´ll make an fly by vid and a little rev :)
