Peter seems to be a pretty smart cat, I'm sure he knows what he's getting into.

Congrats on the new bike Shadman.
I've never actually ridden a busa, but I've heard nothing but good things from their owners.

Congrats on the new bike....I am sure you will have fun with it. Busas are the freakin diesels of the motorcycle world.

I would sure go through the forks, grease the steering head bearings(they are dry from the factory). I can't believe they haven't done the fork seals/fork oil in 80k, I can imagine those forks are sticky...>LOL I am sure you will be OK with it, just expect stuff to go out on it...no biggie, fix it as it does..

As for parting one out...hmmm you can EASILY make $4k back on it

Frames are bringing $2k, even that high mileage engine will bring $1500, body stuff will fetch you about $500-1000 depending on quality, forks/tree/swingarm another $300, wheels $200, ecm/dash/harness $200, axles/sprockets/brakes/rear sets another $100, seats $40, etc

You see, you can EASILY part one and make $5k....and the stuff will sell quick..so if it pops and you don't want to spend money fixing it, part it out..

I,ve had my busa since 99, one of the copper ones, and this thing is a beast, have prolly 1500 1/4 mile passes on this thing and fast as , very versatile and great 2 up as well, just a great allaround mc corners purdy well also just gotta muscle it a little, dont get me wrong it aint no 600 but not too chitty, I have a friend that buys a new one every 2 years or so, he is on his 5th or 6th one, no problems with them just has the jack to buy a new color every couple years, and still gets good money when selling the old one

The busas handle awesome!!! I used to scrape pegs(and fairings) on mine back in the days before turbo. Its the perfect all around bike. Comfy, great for 2 up with enough torque to easily pull two people. They are near bulletproof. I have made over 700 passes on it and probably over 300 dyno pulls. 29k miles on the original bearings even... I would never get rid of my busa....but the G1k is a perfect back up bike!

I bought the 80k mile 2001 bike, and am buying Michael's 2002 (my old Busa!!!!!) Double Busa Family now. One turbo about to be ordered for the 2001 rat bike. Haven't you seen how much space I'm clearing out in my garage!

Agree with you guys that a Busa is a great bike. I missed mine from the moment I sold it to Train. And I never thought it handled like a pig....

You are gonna turbo the 80k busa?? Wow, now that will be a test for the busa's longetivity....

Two things for you to remember, first make sure you pull the oil galley plug behind the oil filter to increase oil flow/pressure to the oiling circuit you will feed the turbo with(thats the oil circuit with the oil pressure sending unit). If you don't pull that plug, you won't make it a mile. Next, whatever turbo kit you go with, make SURE you don't go over 7lbs of boost on stock compression, on pump gas, you will melt it for sure, especially with 80k miles on the rings....Lastly, make sure you get it on a dyno before you even make boost with it, pre-built maps are a joke and you will cook it easily within 2 gears of boost.

PM me when you get your kit and give me the details on it and I will give you some tips to help keep it from melting...You are opening "Pandora's box" with turboing....
