Suave's GSXR Swap Post

Well, after a long time waiting and saving money, I have finally purchaed the beginnings of my GSXR Swap. Here are just a few pictures of the parts as they came 10 days late thanks to USPS.





As always when you buy crap off ebay it's always misinterpreted...The left fork was all scratched up and this one being on the top is enough to make me want to buy another fork. However, all of the other parts are good. Will continue to post pics as parts come.

Re: Suave's GSXR Swap Post

You mean the gouge on the upper right side? No, its more like someone hit it with an axe or a flathead screwdriver. If it weren't on the cap where it can be seen, it wouldnt be such a big deal...eBay stinks.

Re: Suave's GSXR Swap Post

Talk to some suspension technicians, chances are they'll have a cap you can bludge

Ohh please do! Will definitely subscribe. Post it up in the Gen1 tech area so it won't get so lost in the general area.
