OMRRA Suzuki SV-650 Eric Koegler-good motorcycle race

2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000 - Jay Leno's Garage
2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000 . How fast could you go? Do the power-to-weight math:
155 at the rear wheel at 452 pounds...
Competition is fierce in the crowded realm of the literbike. So despite an
incredible record of consecutive AMA Superbike wins, Suzuki decided to go
back to the drawing board for a completely new soup-to-nuts redesign of the
GSX-R1000 for 2009. Suzuki Motorcycle's Garrett Kai jokes that the only
elements carried over from last year's model are the fuel tank cap and the
oil filter. The differences may seem subtle to the untrained eye, but to a
superbike aficionado, Suzuki has gone the distance to improve upon previous
The overall appearance of the Gixxer Thou is more aggressive and more
refined, and more compact than its forebear. Weight has been cut back six
pounds to a total net of 452 pounds. The redesigned 999cc inline
four-cylinder engine is over two inches shorter, which in turn shortens the
wheelbase for greater maneuverability, and allows for a longer swingarm,
yielding improved corner traction. Technology from racing's cutting edge
has informed most aspects of the bike's new design, including a new
cable-actuated clutch system, and big piston forks. Indeed, with 155 hp at
the rear wheel, you might want to have some racing experience before
attempting to tap this bike's potential. That's right, for a mere $12,899,
you too can enjoy grand prix performance in a two-wheeled street machine.
An avid Suzuki collector, Jay already has a 1975 RE5 and a 1966 X6 Hustler
among others in his collection, and was beyond thrilled when Suzuki
presented him with the first production GSX-R1000 as a thank you for his
support of the motorcycle industry. Jay will have to break his Gixxer in
easy for the first 500 miles, keeping it below 4000 rpm - where most cars

Racing SuperStock B on a superstock SV650 at Cresson
Motorsport Ranch Cresson, clockwise. CMRA 2011, Round 8
Decided I wasn't having fun in my normal races so I entered a race with
GSXR750's, Duc 848's and below. Started last row of 25 entries and finished
8th. Couldn't squeeze by an 848 and a 750 that were attached at the hip in
all the tight sections.
My bike: 2003 SV650S, stock power except for Exhaust, AK20's, Penske Double, Michelin V
Paeroa 2012 F3 Race 1 SV650 Jason McCamish onboard
This is race one from Paeroa in F3 2012. I'm riding a fuel injected Suzuki
SV650. Modifications are a full Yoshimura Exhaust system. An Ohlins rear shock and
spring. Revalved and resprung front forks. Aside from that it's standard
in accordance with Production Twin rules for the National events. The
majority of the other bikes in my race are Formula 3 spec which means very
few limits on modifications.
I came fifth in this race out of about 25 bikes scoring me a whopping $175
prize money which is pretty good for motorbike racing in NZ.
Craig from Cycletreads crashed his Kawasaki zxr400 in this race.
Thanks to all who've helped me over the years.
