Thoughts on I4 bikes with built motors
I found a bike I'm interested in. Any of you have experience with built inline 4 (I4) sportbikes in the last 10 years?
The bike is a +3mm 1070 GSXR1000. Only 1500 miles on the rebuild. Bike is mint mint with nice bolt on mods. Engine has all the big names. KWS consulted, JE pistons, Yosh RR cams, V&H porting (for street improvements, no low and mid rpm losses), Falicon crank work and clutch basket, Carillo rods, transmission work (undercut and heat treat).
Owner said it is was built as easy streetable, no issues whatsoever with it.
What do you guys think of a bike like this? Back in the carburetor days this type of engine work resulted in poor running or finicky beasts. I don't know much since then.
I did some reading on line and some people are putting 40k+ miles on these builds without issue.
