We have known to the owner of this motorcyle for a long time. With him we started the exciting world of motorcycles and with it began our passion for the Suzuki motorcycles. He was the owner of a Suzuki GSX-R 750 1989, which passed away a long time ago and with it we enjoyed many good times.
The fact is that a couple of months ago, we discussed the idea of catching something “classic”. We want to get a Suzuki GSX-R 750 1990 or in its case to have a Suzuki GSX-R 750 1993, because it is a water-cooled motorcycle and the chassis does not burn your legs, as is often the case with the “oil” GSX-R (oil-cooled).
Our surprise is that in a second hand site they had just published a Suzuki GSX-R 750 1989, with very good appearance and good price. Without thinking much, our friend got in touch with the owner and stayed with the motorcycle. They sent it through a carrier and when it arrived it did not start, it made several attempts until it started but stopped because of the clutch. The fact is that little by little he managed to get to the workshop.
There it stayed for several days where it had complete damping, valve adjustment, chain tensioning, brake cleaning, clutch adjustment, spark plug change, oil change, oil filter change. The odometer bulbs have also been changed. All the o-rings have been changed in the carburettors, more cleaning and all the joints of the areas that have been repaired and the heat paint of the leaks have been changed.
Finally, an adhesive kit was purchased and delivered to the painter and the motorcycle was painted completely, to leave the motorcycle almost as if it left the factory. You just have to see the pictures to see the final result. There are some details, such as polishing the exhaust or fork bars, to leave them perfect. But they are unimportant details that will later be resolved.
We show you with the image gallery of the restoration and with a couple of final pictures of this wonderful Suzuki GSX-R 750 1989.
