Well, after a few months of down time, I finally got her up and running. Big thanks to the following folks for helping out. (in no particular order)

Matt and his son Spanky- hooking me up with parts at a killer price
Whitie Ray- custom weld bigD's Akra pipe and subframe-awesome work
bigD- hooking a broke brotha up with the Akra pipes
Danny- frame sliders, CRG shorties, rear sprocket, fairing stay and some other stuff- for free
Cindy/Robert/Duane- hooking up my forks and brake lines

LMK if I forgot you

here's a few pictures..

That's sick yo! Nicely done.

But you forgot to thank Suzuki for those leaky fork seals. Without em, you wouldn't be where you are today...

not for awhileBummer. When I first read the thread I thought we had heard the last of the "I can't go cause I don't have a bike" whining that's been going on. Oh well.

How does that pipe sound when you are on it at higher RPM?
Do you notice any difference with it other than loosing 30 lbs ? More mid & top end grunt?

Thanks, I like welding Ti!

It is a little bit Kawi, little bit Suzuki, and a little bit back woods ingenuity. It started as a Ti Acrapovic slip on sys for a ZX-10 and the stock GSXR-1K Ti can. Cut some from here, cut some from there, flare this, bend that, apply weld and whammo, it looks like it belongs.

pipe sounds really nice..it's got that grunt at low rpm..I cant really tell at high RPMs, ask Dan, he should be able to tell you.. I blow by him all the time :D
