They stay wanting to go to the track for some reason & and they fast to :s21:.... But all I know is the little recall thing that's all . I have 3 of them and haven't had any trouble that I didn't start myself .. only had the recall done on one of them looks like a bunch of BS to me but to each his own .... You will be good 

No problems that I have come across. Frame recall was the only thing I've done. You're good to go fast.:2thumbs:

I asked the Service Manager at my dealer before I bought mine, he said the only issue he knows of is from abuse, and it would be just issues with 2-3 gear shifts. Sometimes it will want to fall out. Its not a cheap fix, but it only has the problem from abuse and higher miles (mainly combo of the 2).

So i got home and adjusted my idle tonight which was easy (dont know how i didnt notice the adjustment bolt before) while running it i noticed there is a sound when i let off while reving it up, only like 6krpm, it almost sounds like a turbo blow off but not real loud...is that the valves? or just the extreme restriction of the stock intake?

The neck recall on the 05-06 gsxr 1000 is not BS, these crack necks a lot and its not pretty when they do. Also when building the motors up on the 05 and newer gsxr 1000's it's wise to use the 01-02 cases because the 05 and new started using bigger windage tunnels through the bottom of the cylinders and that weakened the cylinders and they crack in the cylinder walls. Also they used less webbing in the lower cases causing weakness in the cases that allows the case to flex...Number one reason for bearing failure. So if you use your 05 and newer cases I would just recommend using Two Wheel Werks engine Girdle and his ARP bolts for the cases and head and all the oiling mods and that motor should be a good strong runner :buttrock:
