Busas Sign in.... I'm looking for ideas

I gotta stop spending money on this bike... other then gas... but until that day comes, I'm curious to see/hear what you all have done, tried etc with yours...

And if you're on extremebusa.com, I think there is a ride coming to our part of the country soon....

02 Busa

Got in May,

marble paint, leds(not visible, i like the glow in the intake,engine and track), euro tail w/ integrated turnsignals, polished wheel lips.

Lowered 1.25/2" with black skeleton/etched triple and dogbones in rear

Yoshi slip ons, 220 reverse indigo/color change w/ yellowbox, inlet flap mod, emission marble, suzuki stage up programming(i gotta get a PCMIII), GiPro Tre with shift light(-saver!)

wanna do the 90w oil conversion for steering stabilizer this weekend as I work.

Use to riding/cruising with church groups with some highspeed runs for long distances... Did some and apparently will continue to do some drag racing soon... Suspension is 2 over the manual recommended tight setting all the way around to keep it planted; so i drove it right onto the track with no probs; other then my reaction time etc..... :/:

Curious to hear from the turboed busas.... cause I just know that's where I'll be wanting to go, just a stage one though...

600rr? Ever tried some of the 00 Cbrs on the track? In cali that's what the team ran... they WERE personal bikes sponsering themselves as a separate team and the bikes got more and more radical to the point where one kinda just donated his bike after a minor drop. They had the wide tank monsters...

Bet the new ones handle 100% different

never tried the older cbr's on the track before. my first bike was a 96 f3....it was nice. never tracked that thing before. and i never really knew how to ride a bike until last year. by that i mean, ride the bike the way it was built to ride. i was a noob for too long.

NICE... HOV....
Single exhaust muzzy? My dual is starting to play on me a little... Tomorrow i need to take apart the left side slip on to get the restricter plate out of it... right side doesn't have it in it... Depending on the dbs, may take a ride around the block, not gonna go wild with the rpms though since no pcm to adjust it...

On MSRH I was hitting about 135 on the back straight going into the sweeper. Topped out in 5th, or occasionally going into 6th.

What you get is a much more versatile street ride with 2nd gear being very usable for neighborhood sharp turns, 3-4 for most daily driving, and 5-6 for the highway. With stock gearing I was rarely hitting 4th gear on my daily commute on surface streets.

Houseofpain-
ya, I came of a Katana....
I scraped pedals on the right curves but that's cause it's lowered too...
never went to a track day on the busa, it's more my cruiser and top speeder over near LA backroads(i said I do ride alot...)

I do love the curves... Kuddos to knee draggers but not my slice yet...

My bike runs very clean and strong with the stock programming with the 4/1. I'm sure a PCIII would liven it up a lot, but I run it hard as it is without worries.

I had to take the little peg sliders off at the track. Buck was worried about the spark and maybe them causing me to wreck in a bottom out situation. I was like, "sweet, got the pegs on the ground". That's a first for me on any bike, ever.

I think the -1 +3 is about a 17% change. It runs a little higher revs on the highway than I'd like, but it rarely feels like I'm lugging it now. Plus, 17% more power in every gear means it hauls. I passed every bike I could catch in the turns down the straights, no problem. Couple of guys would run around me at corner exit, I'd get them on the straights, then let them go after the next turn so I woudn't hold them up too much with my point and shoot antics. Fun fun fun, but way heavy midcorner and in transitions.

I'd recommend a cheap track bike, or a loaner. Lowered, trick, and really nice means you'll be really upset when it inevitably goes end over end at the track.
