just to give you all an update I finally found what the issue with my lurching was, it was the air to fuel mixture that was off due to the open ports on my air intakes. After installing the ram air tubes and intake filter all power has returned. At least it got a carb clean (thanks Chad) new set of spark plugs and an oil change out of it.

probably not air filter but ram air tubes. I guess we had the same problem when I took off my top/front fairings. Either my problem triggered him to think that it's the tubes, or he found out elsewhere.

If people on the board knew that you were missing intake tubes I'm sure they would have pointed that out as well.

the funny thing is it always was missing but the lurching started after i installed only the tubing and ran out of gas so it was kind of wierd.

ram air tubes?

they make no difference on the busa until after 115-120 mph(gen1.) Suzuki spent 10k on wind tunnel testing for that intake system. There are extensions available in the aftermarket that act like snorkels and extend out from the cowling to pic up 3-5hp above 120mph.


you dont get significant flow through the airbox until volume increases from speed. The system is still in a vacuum under those speeds due to the engine(air pump,) unless the ram tubes are actually a restriction of some sort preventing too much air flow. But that design would be counter productive.

all I know is without tubes runs like down a wall with it got power all the way through every gear with no bogging

Glad to hear that took care of it. - And it DID have an air filter in it - just didn't have the rest of the ram air plumbing. It was doing it even with the tubes installed initially, so it's probably got more to do with the connection from the bowl vents that was just hanging out front cause we didn't have anything to plug it to and would really have caused some issues if capped off.

I'll feel a lot better now. I thought we covered the bases pretty well that day given what we had to work with. AND you know that your carbs are clean and synched on top of it all now. :-)

we actually beat the fast group to the spot on the last ride they got lost

but that is why I either was going too fast or too slow couldn't maintain a constant speed with the way the gas was burning.
