How can you tell if a 02 telefonica is real - February 7, 2013, 03:01 PM

can you check the vin number is there a special code, i know its just the fairings that is different but i just wanted to know if a vin check would tell if it is. cause when i ran my vin with autocheck and carfax both state its GSX-R600MKS Telefonica. but from what i heard from the previous owner that its been drop and fairing has been replaced.

Pic is what it looks like now

easy...

fairing should have part number stamped on back, pull the number from oneida suzuki or bikebandit.

that's how you'll be able to tell if the fairing is legit.

he replaced ALL the fairing AND the tank??? It's either not a Telefonica version or he had a major crash at some point.

I don't know of a way to check the frame. I would suggest calling Suzuki corporate and asking.

Maybe I'm missing the point here, but since it no longer has the fairings what does it matter whether it is/was or not? In its current state its just a "normal" 02.

Since he's trying to sell it, he might think that it would make it more marketable. You are correct though, in its current state, it's just an 02 Gixxer 6.

yeah sorry confirm with suzuki that its not, i called carfax and ask why did it show on the report that its a telefonica they pretty much said look at the report again because it said 2002 Suzuki Gsx-R600k2 / Gsx-R600MKS Telefonica. Carfax cannot guarantee the model of the bike because Suzuki uses the same frame as a regular Gsxr 600 with the telefonica edition. and when i did my research it shows that its just the fairing that is diff from a regular 600. No extra number coding on the frame it self. 500 Telefonica made it in the USA in 2002 and thats the only year they made it for the k2 body.

Great minds dodge... this was my first reaction.

Secondly... there is two easy ways.

1) Let girls sit on it. If they wet their panties right away, its probably legit.

2) Dyno it. If its a real Telefonica it will pin the dyno reading at Bad-Ass.

Since the only difference is the paint scheme, if its got non Telefonica fairings, then it's just a regular model

Even if there was some way of identifying it via the frame... Without the plastics, it's identical to a regular model.

I don't know if a Telefonica is worth a premium over regular, but if its missing the one single feature that makes it a Telefonica , then definitely not
