Stellenbosch long-suffering little bike shop, Stellenbosch bikes, belong to Herman Geldenhuys.

Herman had a pre-sling many years ago, and for two years he revved the shit out of that machine at every opportunity, usually daily.

One evening he was at it again, on the pavement in front of the old Castle bar, when a valve broke off it's head, which went straight through the piston.

Luckily no fire, but Herman's oil spillage, a line about 5 meters long out the exhaust, left a mark on that pavement that lasted years.

If forced to an answer on the question of the toughest engine ever in a motorcycle, it would be the oilcooled pre-sling GSX-R.

What about the aircooled GSX motor........? I don;t think that it's actually possible to blow one of those things up.

The 1100 was bulletproof whereas the 750 ran big end bearings for fun

Not a presling

But a 92 GSXR1127M, oil cooled, stock standard, to the screen, exhaust and paintjob, even the seat

Bought it from my Nephew some years ago

It's my forever bike

Ja - meant the 1100 with the roller bearing crank. Same motor as Katana if I remember correctly?
