I am not an owner at present, but I want to get a GTR 1000 with about 40,000 kms (25,000 mi).
I am in New Zealand, Kawerau (north island, eastern bay of plenty)
I also want to totally strip the bike and fit all the parts to a frame of my own design.
The objective is to create a frame which will fit cross-the-frame fours,
and V-twins like the Suzuki VL1500 LC- subject to being shaft-drive.

I am also interested in hotting up a VL1500 engine. I suspect in can be made
to produce over 80 rwhp, and spin to 7500 rpm redline.
It will need forged pistons , heavier rods, and larger inlet tract-
45mm bore injection throttle body, or 4 barrel carb.
