Welcome fellow Gixxer.com refuge!
I guess I've never officially introduced myself on this board either.
I'm also a mod over at Gixxer.com, which is currently down. I ride a 98 GSXR 750, the red/black model. It is currently having the engine rebuilt because of a failed #4 rod bearing.
And you can't blame that on Suzuki build quality because they don't make the plain bearings, they get them from a different company, so
