New Mod on Busa

Lets face it MORE LEAN = MORE FUN AT THE TRACK
So I did some research and an 02 GSXR 1K swingarm & shock w/ 02 GSXR 600 wishbones bolt right up to my 1st gen Busa which = a 3 inch shorter swingarm & wheelbase & the wishbone raises it 1 inch all this = more fun for me at the track
Call it craziness I call it just plain fun at the track with any toy you bring to TD's

Next mod R6 throttle tube and -1 tooth onont sproket

Thanks... Whoolie machine for sure lol Im tired of the stock gearing and stance at Track Days I can't get a good drive out or lean w/o dragging something in turns plus the R6 tube is a way shorter turn then the stock busa which is going to help alot too

Can't wait to see the finished product, + some video footage.

Quick turn throttle mod should be nice, I was thinking about doing that on my gsxr.

You can use either an R6 or R1 tube correct? One of which has a smaller diameter than the other.

So you're going to take a massively powerful bike, shorten the wheelbase, shorten the throttle turn, AND shorten the gearing. That's legit scary. I hope you plan on investing in bazzaz (or similar) traction control.
