The launch of the sixth generation of Gsxr marked a shift in Suzuki’s emphasis on two fronts. One, the Gsxr 1000 now took the upper hand in the development stakes. Historically, the Gsxr 750 led the march-arriving first, gaining the most recent technology, absorbing the lion’s share of corporate pride-but by 2003 the Gsxr 1000 was in the lead. Two, the Gsxr 1000 represents another, more subtle shift for Suzuki engineering, in which the designers-the lucky guys who get to clothe these amazing machines-have more freedom of expression. With this generation, the designs turned edgier, sharper, more aggressive looking than ever. What’s more, the Gsxr 1000 K3 would be the proving ground for a host of changes brought to the Gsxr 600 and Gsxr 750 for 2004. In fact, nearly every upgrade to the smaller bikes appeared on the Gsxr 1000 a year before. But the real impetus for driving the Gsxr 1000 to the head of development and, indeed, shortening its development cycle was competition both on the track and in the showroom. For the track, it was understood that Superbike racing would revert to allowing 1000 cc four-cylinder bikes in place of the 750s that had been the limit since 1982. In 2002, Yoshimura and Mat Mladin barely lost the AMA Superbike crown to Nicky Hayden aboard the Honda RC5!. But it would be the RC’s swan song of competitiveness with the change to 1000 cc fours. To keep speeds in check, the AMA Superbike rules would require 1000 cc fours to have some additional limitations compared to the twins and triples. For example, “Cylinder heads may be ported and machined, but altering of valve angles will not be permitted; aftermarket valves, springs, retainers, and other valve-train components will be permitted; valves must be stock size and same basic material as original equipment; aftermarket camshafts will be permitted, but earn lift and resulting valve lift must be no greater than stock. “In addition, the “stock crankshaft must be retained, The only allowable modifications are balancing, polishing of bearing surfaces and attachment of accessory drives. Homologated transmission gear sets (one optional set of ratios per approved model) will be permitted. Optional sets will be price-controlled and must be available to any legitimate AMA Superbike competitor. Homologated fuel-injection throttle-body assemblies (one optional type per approved model) and aftermarket airboxes will be permitted. Modifications to throttle bodies will not be permitted. Optional throttle bodies will be price-controlled and must be available to any legitimate AMA Superbike competitor.” The thinking was simple: keep the liter bikes from sucking through massive throttle bodies, and the horsepower might not (and, it was hoped, would not) go through the roof. In preparation for racing, Suzuki moto wanted to make a host of small changes to the Gsxr 1000, but its motivation was also to keep the bike at the forefront of open-class street bikes. Suzuki engineers knew that Honda and Kawasaki were readying all-new models-the CBR 954 RR and the ZX 9 R had long since been vanquished-and rumor had it that Yamaha was ready with yet another push with the R1.It was the right time to make alterations to the Gsxr 1000. Heading the list was, as one might expect, a revised engine.

CLUTCH CABLE REMOVAL To prevent accidental vehicle start-up, which could cause death or serious injury, disconnect battery cables (negative (-) cable first) before proceeding. (00307a) Disconnect negative (-) battery cable first. If positive (+) cable should contact ground with negative (-) cable connected, the resulting sparks can cause a battery explosion, which could result in death or serious injury. (00049a) 1. Disconnect the battery or main fuse following the instructions in the appropriate Service manual. 2. When performing cable disassembly procedures, make careful notes as to the existing cable routing and existing cable strap locations. New straps can be installed in the same locations. 3. Remove the clutch cable following the instructions in the appropriate Service Manual. 4. If installing different handlebars, install them now (refer to the appropriate handlebar instruction sheet) and measure the change in distance that will be required from the end of the cable housing to the clutch lever. Install proper length clutch cables. Incorrect cable length can adversely affect motorcycle operation, which could cause loss of control resulting in death or serious injury. (00448b) 5. Compare the additional required length to the cable provided in your kit. If the cable is more than two inches (50.8 mm) longer or more than one inch (25.4 mm) shorter than the above measured distance, see a Harley-Davidson dealer for the correct cable length. CLUTCH CABLE INSTALLATION Sportster and Softail Models Do not over-tighten clutch cable threaded end fitting. Use recommended torque values. Damage to threaded fitting can lead to loss of transmission fluid, which could result in loss of control and death or serious injury. (00449c) -J04568
NOTE Damage to the clutch cable threaded end fitting due to improper handling/installation is not covered under the Harley-Davidson Motor Company Warranty. 1. See Figure 11. Apply a light coat of clean engine oil on the new O-ring (2) before installing the O-ring onto the threaded portion of the clutch cable end. 2. Install the clutch cable following the instructions in the appropriate Service Manual EXCEPT: Tighten clutch cable fitting to clutch release cover to 36-60 in-lbs (4-7 Nm) . Replace anchor pin with anchor pin supplied in this kit, see Figure 11, item (1 or 7). 3. After installation, follow the instructions in the “Final Assembly” and “Clutch Cable Adjustment” sections in this instruction sheet. FLTR Models with Fairing Lowers 1. See Figure 1. Carefully twist the clutch cable around the coiled opening in the clutch cable guide (2) with the eyelet toward the left handlebar. 2. Route the clutch cable assembly down from the clutch cable clamp while crossing to the right side of the vehicle. Run the cable between the inboard side of the right frame downtube and the outboard side of the voltage regulator. 3. The clutch cable clamp, mounted on the engine guard, has two fingers, an upper and a lower. Feed the cable assembly under one finger and over the other. 4. Finish the installation of the clutch cable following the instructions in the appropriate Service Manual EXCEPT: Tighten clutch cable fitting to clutch release cover to 36-60 in-lbs (4-7 Nm) . Replace anchor pin with anchor pin supplied in this kit, see Figure 11, item (1 or 7). NOTE See Figure 2. Adjust the clutch cable clamp to 2.25 ± 0.25 in. (57.15 ± 6.35 mm) as measured from the inside lower left fairing mount to the clutch cable clamp. 5. After installation, follow the instructions in the “Final Assembly” and “Clutch Cable Adjustment” sections in this instruction sheet.

Before you install your new ASV brake lever, you MUST choose the correct brake light switch tab to install. You will find in the package with this lever one plastic bag with four smaller bags inside of it. One bag has two small phillips screws. The other three bags have small black aluminum blocks (light switch tabs) with labels on them. Part# BRC511-H is ONLY for HONDA motorcycles. Part# BRC511-STK is for all SUZUKI, TRIUMPH and 05-06 KAWASAKI ZX636R motorcycles ONLY. Part# BRC511-K is for all KAWASAKI motorcycles EXCEPT the 05-06 ZX636R . Choose the correct tab for your bike and install it onto the lever as shown in photo 2b using the two small Phillips head screws provided. It is recommended that you use locktite or another type of thread locking adhesive to make sure these screws do not come loose. Be sure to tighten these screws as tight as you can without stripping them. The brake stop / light tab is required for your ASV brake lever to work properly Carefully place the lever into the master cylinder while inserting the plunger rod into the barrel hole as shown in photo 4. Install the main pivot bolt, and tighten it until it is snug against the master cylinder. Do not over-tighten, as it could cause the lever to bind in the master cylinder
