My brood

Post by gpzrfan »

Thought I let you see what else sits in my garage with the two turbos. Like the my turbo's I have looked to improve the bike with upgrades to wheels, suspension, brakes etc

Just had new wheels and disks etc to the 900R, think i'm finished on this one

Nice little collection.
What's the story on that modded 600, it looks pretty sweet.

The 600R has the Japanese market GPZ400R full aluminium frame, we only got the steel version in the UK. The engine is 720cc with flatside carbs. The swing arm is from a ZX400R, same with the forks (but customized & re-valved etc to look like Ohlins) , Ohlins across the frame (modern style installation) steering damper . Penske rear shock with remote reservoir. Hand made 1 off exhaust . Modified rad, Brembo calipers , EBC disks etc ..... the idea was you look at it and see a very nice looking GPZ600R, then you have a second look and see the different rear sets , wheels , the exhaust and so on

It started with a very scruffy bike that had the 400R frame and the 600 engine, the only parts remaining from the original bike is the frame and engine bottom end

The body work was was mainly NOS A2 paint scheme , its an 85 plate so an A1 model

Super nice, beautiful collection gpzrfan. Always liked the 900s. In 2006 I bought a bran new off the showroom floor 636, loved that bike, things got bad and sold it to my Nephew in Jacksonville. It is still exactly the same as when I sold it to him with Muzzy exhaust and a few green accents, except he had the wheels powder coated Green to match the bike, still runs perfect to. I honestly would like to have it back. Maybe I will one day, he fricken never rides it. :rofl:

That brown 4 legged thing is a part of the brood to right. :D

Hi LFD, I got my 636 in 2005 brand new, first bike getting back into biking. It has a Akropovic end can, PCM 3 with tailored mapping , modified velocity stacks by a company in the USA, can't recall the name!! , Ohlins steering damper , double bubble screen etc and a nice little reg plate flipper :cop

Bike is bloody fast, great fun BUT too easy to ride fast

The brown one is Obi, one stupid boxer
