– 2005 Suzuki GSX-R1000

New for 2005

Redesigned engine and chassis


New Engine

Larger displacement 998.6cc 4-stroke, 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine for increased power, torque and acceleration – includes several features to reduce friction and reciprocating mass

Improved electronic fuel injection system features the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve System (SDTV) – maintains optimum air velocity in the intake tract for smooth low-to-mid rpm throttle response and high torque output – includes Auto Fast Idle System (AFIS)

Compact double-barrel throttle body design with larger 52mm bores for improved power, plus narrower pitch between outer and inner bores – allows use of narrower airbox, fuel tank and bodywork to provide more room for rider’s knees/elbows

Twin injectors per throttle body for improved throttle response and acceleration – primary injector operates under all conditions while secondary injector operates under high rpm/heavy load conditions to further increase engine output

New cylinder head features larger 30mm intake and 24mm exhaust ports, plus smaller combustion chamber and higher 12.5 :1 compression ratio for high power output

New Titanium intake and exhaust valves with larger 4.5mm stems for increased strength – valves are lighter overall permitting a 1000 rpm higher engine redline

Lighter weight forged pistons featuring chrome-nitride coated upper compression and oil control rings to reduce friction and improve sealing

New reinforced crankshaft and chrome-moly connecting rods, plus recalibrated balancer shaft for dependable high rpm operation

Back-torque limiting clutch allows smoother downshifts, plus new rack and pinion operating system provides more positive clutch feel

Closer transmission gear ratios for improved acceleration, plus redesigned shift forks for smoother shifting

Larger trapezoidal-shaped radiator improves cooling capacity 17% without increasing frontal area, plus new compact cooling fan design further improves efficiency – system includes high-capacity radiator-type oil cooler

New Suzuki Advanced Exhaust System (SAES) – all titanium system designed and positioned to keep mass low and close to the centerline of the machine, plus decrease drag and increase cornering bank angle

Suzuki Exhaust Tuning System (SET) regulates exhaust pressure waves to suit running conditions and maintain optimum engine torque

ECM-controlled PAIR (Pulsed-AIR) system – operation based on throttle position and engine rpm to reduce HC, CO and NOx emissions

New-design generator is more compact and supplies power to a lighter and shorter maintenance-free battery – ECM is also narrower and shorter for weight reduction

New Chassis

More compact overall chassis dimensions including shorter reach from seat to handlebars, lower footpegs, shorter/narrower fuel tank, 20mm lower seat height – all designed for improved rider comfort and mobility

New wind-tunnel-developed bodywork with reshaped vertical headlights, repositioned ram-air ducts, plus turn signals integrated with mirrors and tail-section – reduces frontal area by 4% and drag by 5%

Bright 55/65W headlight and reshaped taillight with new clear external lens

Redesigned instrument cluster features an analog tach with rpm indicator, digital speedometer and new gear indicator – also includes LCD odometer-tripmeters, coolant temp., clock and EFI diagnostics

All-new lightweight aluminum frame with combination cast and extruded spar construction for precisely calculated rigidity – frame design concentrates engine mass more toward the center of the machine for improved handling

Braced aluminum swingarm is lighter weight with improved rigidity – right side arm is shaped to tuck in the exhaust for improved cornering clearance

Fully adjustable 43mm inverted fork features Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) coated stanchion tubes to reduce friction and improve response – includes cross-mounted steering damper

Fully adjustable piggy-back shock absorber with more linear rate linkage system for improved suspension response and feedback

Radial-mount four-piston front brake calipers with larger 310mm rotors and new radial-mount master cylinder for improved lever feel and feedback

Bridgestone radial tires mounted on new cast aluminum wheels featuring redesigned, thinner spokes with optimized wall thickness to reduce unsprung weight
