Very good point about the under-tail exhaust!

Never thought about it specially riding in heavy/slow traffic during the Summer. I guess those under-tail exhausts were made thinking on the bike more for track use. I only ride on streets and from time to time the usual high speed run on the roads of "Mexico" but I use my bike as my main mode of transportation, the car is only to bring groceries.

Thank you very much for all the input.

I assume he's talking about an older R1 that was a complete custom build. Custom cams, valves(20), head work by hand, tranny, 4-carbs, tuning, etc...it wasn't a regular build by any means..

UPDATE:

it!! The Busa got sold last night!! Went to the dealership ready to close the deal. Finance was already approved a couple of days ago and the Busa is gone. Was checking the R1 in more detail and the body has some scratches and some details here and there.

Thank you very much for all the input Team.

Ride safe.

You REALLY need to find a good deal on a GEN II busa..... 08 and later. They are much better all the way around then a Gen I. They would be a great commuter bike, more torque, better fuel injection, better cooling system, better suspension, better brakes. For what you can get 08 busas for now, I wouldn't buy a gen I unless it was a smokin deal....(like <$5k)....or unless I was building a turbo bike....
