Suzuki GSXR1000K8 Engine Features
999cc 4-stroke, 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine for increased power, torque and acceleration with forged aluminum alloy pistons, chrome-moly shotpeened connecting rods, hollow camshafts, and a secondary balancer shaft for reduced vibration Compact fuel injection system features the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve System (SDTV) - with twelve smaller holes for maximum fuel delivery and steeper angle for secondary injectors
Idle Speed Control (ISC) system for improved cold starting, consistent idle quality and reduced emissions
High volume Suzuki Advanced Exhaust System (SAES) with equal length head pipes feeding a unique under engine chamber leading to two compact aluminum/titanium mufflers on each side
The mid-pipe includes a Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) system for maximum torque throughout the rpm range and an oxygen sensor used by the engine management system and combined with the under-engine catalyzer for reduced emissions
48mm ventilation holes between cylinders reduce pumping losses
Self adjusting hydraulic clutch uses and minimzes changes in clutch feel over a long race
Back-torque limiting clutch allows smooth downshifts, plus a rack and pinion operating system provides a positive clutch feel
S-DMS (Suzuki-Drive Mode Selector) system allows the rider to choose from three engine settings to match track conditions with a handlebar mounted switch
Radiator utilizes a trapezoidal shape seen on works race bikes. The oil pump is larger for increased capacity and performance.

Suzuki GSXR1000 K8 Chassis Features
Aluminum alloy twin-spar frame is built using five castings for lightweight, unmatched handling and performance, increased production precision, and reduced weight. Die-cast aluminum-alloy swingarm is more rigid and features an innovative new link system which pivots on the swingarm itself for increased traction and reduced side loads. DLC coated 43mm forks and rear shock feature high and low speed compression damping along with adjustable rebound and preload settings
Forks feature larger 56mm outer tubes below the triple clamp for increased rigidity.
Electronically controlled steering damper uses a solenoid valve to move a tapered needle reducing or increasing oil flow to adjust damping force.
Adjustable rider footpegs can be moved into three different positions to suit rider preferences
310mm front brake discs are attached to the carrier with 10 floating mounts instead of 8 for improved heat transfer away from the disc
Rear disc works with a single piston caliper and is mounted above the swingarm for reduced braking effect on the rear suspension
Wind tunnel developed bodywork features an aggressive style, reduced frontal area and a tall windscreen for optimum aerodynamic performance
Vertically stacked headlight features a compact projector bulb and when combined with the sleek bodywork and tailsection offer maximum rider mobility and unmatched styling
An easy-to-read instrument cluster includes a step motor controlled analog tachometer, digital LCD speedometer, dual tripmeters, clock, convenient gear position sensor, rpm indicator light and a new LCD S-DMS mode indicator displaying which performance setting has been selected by the rider
Close-ratio six-speed transmission with an adjustable back torque limiter for smoother downshifts.
Bridgestone radial tires mounted on cast aluminum wheels featuring thin spoke design with optimized wall thickness to reduce unsprung weight
