Rehabbing Rando- 2002 GSX-R 750

My track bike, Rando is a 2002 GSX-R 750, and heís getting a little rehab before our first track day together on July 9th.

Picked up the bike for $1,000
It has a few spares and 4 sets of bodywork and has been a dedicated track bike itís whole life, so MSO in hand.

I knew it would need a few things but it is running ridable and most importantly... in my budget.

Started going through the bike and found positives and negatives.

Steel braided dual front lines
Nearly brand new pads
Good set of tires
Vortex Rear-set
New levers
Power Commander III
Yoshimura Exhaust
Woodcraft case slider
GP suspension front cartridge
Re-Valved Rear shock
K&N air filter
A few other pieces here and thereíre, but overall a pretty sorted bike. No smoking. Easy to start and spins up nicely.

Missing engine bolt from missing slider ($18.00) fix

Dash LCD doesnít display, tac still displays so Iím not worried.

Keys all gone (track bike, who needs keys, or kick stands)

Overall Iím happy with the shape the bike is in. I have literally no idea on miles because the LCD is bad. I changed plugs, refreshed the K&N, oil & filter. Now it is purring happily. I have passively met the guy who built it at a track day, but he handed it down to his son who only ever rode it once. His loss.

I hope to meet the guy whoís bike it was for all the years at the July 9th track day at PIR. He has helped with MotoCorsa track days in the past and it would be Awesome to get first hand info about the bike.

I only have a few parts to put on before taking it out:
New snorkelís (cracked/broken currently)
New frame sliders
Brake fluid bleed

I think it is pretty close to ready. I have only gotten to take it around the block, so Iím going to find a *cough* parking lot *cough* to test the bike out a bit. Hoping the clutch feels good, because that is my only part of concern. But I wonít really know how it feels till I get it on track.

Anyone else have input in something that I could/should address before the track?

So I was able to take Rando out and about today. Bike is running good but Iím not to sure about the condition of the friction plates in the clutch. Only going about 20-30 in 1st at 7,000-8,000 rpm. It felt good and shifted smooth.

I have a hard time telling 100% if I should replace the clutch. I have no real way to take he bike out for a ride before the track, and on track day it is too late for a clutch change.

Any ideas on how to give it a through test to check for slippage? I know with cars if you pull forward into a curb and block the back wheels, then put the car into the highest gear, let the clutch out slowly. If the engine dies the clutch is still ok, if it keeps turning then it is toast. Rehabbing Rando- 2002 GSX-R 750-img_9565.jpg
