Hello everybody, new to the site. Currently have a 2004 GSX-R 1000 but due to that bike getting me in trouble with tickets I need to slow down. Going to be selling the crotch rocket soon and buying a warrior, and very excited to get mine! Just wondering if there was any difference between the 2002's and the newer models I should be aware of? Looking forward to some great info once I buy mine and start the modifications! Thanks,

Lucas W.

If you are looking for a used one, see if you can find an '02-03 that hasn't had the transmission recall work done yet. It's a great time to get some goodies istalled with no labor charge. Good luck.

Welcome to the 4M.[8D]
What make's you think you won't get a ticket on a Warrior???[}/emoticons/emotion-1.gif]
Just thought I would ask, as you can roll the throttle on these
Just as hard and get into just as much trouble.[/emoticons/emotion-4.gif].

Thanks guys, didnt know about the tranny recall, I will have to check into that! I picked the warrior because I really wanted a bike that was 1/2 V-twin muscle and 1/2 sportbike, plus the warrior is just a gorgeous motorcycle. Ill have mine in about 3 weeks. Also the reason I got tickets on the GSXR is because I like to do stupid things on it /emoticons/emotion-1.gif (Reference picture below). And cops in this town have it out for sportbike riders.

My $.02. If you did stupid things on your GSXR (clearly, you did :&gt/emoticons/emotion-5.gif, a different bike isn't going to change the one constant that really matters. The rider.

IOW: You'll be getting tickets on your Warrior as well.

That is very true, BUT I still want to trade in for the warrior /emoticons/emotion-1.gif Just need to work on keeping the stupid stuff to a minimum.

Clearly, it'll be a VERY different bike, but there are probably few who have an eye for the warrior that don't like it after taking one for a spin.
I'm sure you'll love it. Just be careful, and if you start feeling a little nutty, well, just make sure you do it where you're the only one that might get killed from it. /emoticons/emotion-5.gif

Finger-wagging aside, get the warrior (did I harass you about your lack of gear yet ;&gt/emoticons/emotion-5.gif. It's a great bike, and you'll certainly stand out from the sea of sport bikes out there.

GEAR, I know I know, me of all people should know to wear it with all the road rash scars and broken bones Ive seen from other people going down. Thats another aspect of sportbikes I need to get away from, wrecking! I know its no excuse but it gets really hot down here in florida and a leather jacket in 100 degree weather with 100% humidity is sometimes too much. But thank you for the tip, I have looked at the Honda Rune Valkyrie 1800, Kawasaki Mean streak, and Suzuki M109R but stil the Warrior comes out on top, it is just breathtaking and I have read nothing but great reviews about it!

Welcome to the 4m Lucas. Not sure the Warrior will keep you out of trouble but what the **** you know yourself better than we do. One of the tricks that I use is spend lots of money on mods that make it look good. Then you don't want to risk messing it up. Good Luck.

Good choice of bike Brother. There are lots of people on here who have moved from a Sportsbike to a Warrior and have never looked back, me included. I had a 'Blade' and seriously needed to slow myself down, that was 4 years ago and it's worked a treat, no tickets in 4 years and I now have just as much fun on my Warrior as I did with my Blade, moreover I now stand right out from the crowd over here as there are very very few Warriors on the roads, almost everyone has a boring old Sportsbike /emoticons/emotion-5.gif Enjoy the Forums and best of luck with your purchase.
