  1. Take Down
    • 1 Park the motorcycle on the kickstand or center stand and allow the exhaust pipes to cool completely.
    • 2 Refer to your Suzuki service manual and organize the metric tools needed to remove the baffle. On newer models, it may be necessary to remove the tailpipe section to modify the baffle. On older models, you may be directed to remove a bolt that secures the baffle in the tailpipe.
    • Follow the procedure given in the manual and remove the tailpipe section or slide-in baffle using the appropriate tools. Save any brackets or bolts. Place the tailpipe or baffle on a workbench.
    Tailpipe Baffles
    • 4 Hold one end the tailpipe up to a light and look inside the other end. Depending on the baffle, you may see very little light or none at all. Modifying the baffle is a matter of opening up areas in the baffle.
    • 5 Chuck a 1/4-inch drill bit in an electric drill. Use a bit extension if necessary to reach deep into the tailpipe with the drill bit.
    • 6 Place the tailpipe on a workbench. Use a towel or rags to prevent scratching the finish. Insert the tip of the drill bit into the tailpipe and drill a 1/4-inch hole in the baffle.
    • 7 Hold the tailpipe up to the light again. Determine the number of additional holes you want based on the purpose of the modification. Drill additional holes in the baffle if needed.
    • 8 Stand the tailpipe on end and tap it on the workbench to clear the debris from drilling out of the baffle. Make sure all debris is cleared out before reinstalling the tailpipe on the motorcycle.
    Slide-In Baffles
    • 9 Secure the outer end of the baffle in a bench vise with the baffle extending to one side. The outer end has the threaded hole where the bolt was removed to take the baffle out of the exhaust pipe.
    • 10 Measure the length of the baffle and divide it by four. You modify a slide-in baffle by cutting off a one-quarter section at a time using a hacksaw. Mark the baffle at the one-quarter point and cut the first section off the end.
    • 11 Reinstall the baffle in the exhaust pipe using the saved bolt and the metric tool.
      Start the motorcycle and determine if the modification produced the desired result.
    • 12 Allow the exhaust pipe to cool completely before removing the baffle for further modification. Most likely, cutting one or two quarter sections will give you the result you want. Avoid cutting too much off the baffle, or it will be useless.

SOURCE: How fast does a Suzuki GSXR 1000 go?

Most sports bikes are limited to 300km/h by the manufacturers in an effort to be responsible. Actually the ? was about the 1000 not "most sport bikes". The Suzuki gsxr1000 for 2007 is rev limited to 184 mph. U do the math to figure out kph but in the U.S. who cares about the metric numbers.

SOURCE: suzuki gsxr 600 06 starting problems

200° is quite warm...
If the engine wont turn over, probabily you have a bad battery, a bad starter or a bad starter relay, or bad connections.

A hot engine has more compression. If the full battery power doesn't reach the starter it won't turn over...

Cranks but will not start

Just because you have a visible spark doesn't mean that you have a viable ignition spark. The chances are, you have either failed plugs or failing leads.

Gsxr750 k3 missfire

Maybe the points are a bit rusty from it being parked 6 months. Maybe you washed it then parked it and water got onto those special parts. Open The cover to the points and with a piece of fine emery cloth, sand between the contacts. Also maybe new spark plug. You barely just broke the bike in.

I have a 97 suzuki gsxr with 17000 miles i have problem starting it in the mornings

when you turn the ignition on, turn it on till you hear the fuel pump but dont start it. If you do that about five or six time and it starts, then you have air getting into your lines at night and the system is repreasurizing in the morning. Also could just be the cold start valve/injector is cloged or old.
