I finally took delivery of my 2011 GSX-R750 tester—with just 1.3 miles on the odometer—at Sportland 2 Suzuki in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, last September. First stop was a NESBA track day at Road America the very next morning. Break it in hard, the pros say! Raising the fork tubes 7mm and adding compression damping at the back improved the sluggish steering, but room for improvement remains. We’ll shim and re-spring the rear shock to add more ride height and squat resistance, or maybe replace it outright with a more adjustable aftermarket alternative. On the dyno it made 127 bhp—identical, incidentally, to ’04—but the air-fuel ratio was horrendously lean. Remapping will unlock plenty of useful power, once we figure out how to use EFI Editor software to reflash the factory ECU. We’re off to a good start.
