Welcome.... nice bike... is it fast?
P.S. - don't forget the radar detector....
Hi another busa owner from down under.this is my tarmac tourer.love the busa.have clocked12 k km + in 2 rides ssince Jan 13.will post a pjc when I get to my comp.posting currently from phone.
New to the forum too :)
My busa in Russia
Well its been a year, I have finally started rebuilding my engine that failed due to the cam chain tensioner. New one will have high comp pistons, knife edged crank, dual intake cams/degree'd cam gears, and a ported and polished head with an 04 ECU(Re Fladshable). Should be good for about 190Hp at the wheel. All for under $2500. I cant wait
Cool, document the rebuild with some pics and post 'em up, us gearheads love this kind of stuff!
edit: dual intake cams, did I read that right?
Yes you did, it bumps the HP up nicely. I'm using ECS in Gilbert Az for the build. Walter Sprout is a national champion drag racer and held the record for being the quickest No (wheelie) Bar bike on the planet in the quarter mile. He also happens to be a good friend. I will have less into a performance build up than I would have to replace it.
Moving to GA... don't think the cops will be as "understanding" as they are in AZ. (I kinda have a heavy wrist). So... with a heavy heart I sold it as to prevent an "incident" on my record.
I have a set of seats ( Black Carbon Fiber Look with the emblems embroidered), and a black Zero Gravity screen (with FYYFF decal already in place!) in the flea market.
Added hardbags to mine this weekend..
Love the looks of the Busa!
I like the new red one too for 2014.
My Busa hooptie in sleeping for the winter mode, 11°F with snow kinda puts a stop to the fun.
FINALLY, New Engine going in to my 99. New one is an 07. Pulse Performance Block off plates installed.
07 ECU and Harness
Pullin the old harness.
There's a 2008 turned up local. Looks ace. I'm tempted - just don't know if my neck is up to it TBH.
Any known issues with that year?
Nothing I've heard of. I have helibars on mine and those in combo with the gel seat and gsxr pegs it's all day comfy.
Thanks for that. What kind of range do you get from a tank?
I can get anywhere from 16MPG to 40MPG. Depends on how hard I'm playing. I can run it empty in less than a 80 miles or so over 150. At 185MPH I'm getting about 15 mpg.
Hey is living in Russia as crazy at it looks on youtube? Everytime I see a Russian video something crazy is happening, like a meteor falling from the sky, people fighting in the street with baseball bats or some other nutty thing.
Just wondering, sorry for the threadjack.

Getting closer. New engine is installed and radiator is installed. Trying to find a fuel pump mount now. I'm so ready to ride my copper beast again.
I ride the wheels off my Busa. did a 4 corners 10,500mi ride on her last year.
I own a 2012 Busa registered in 13, have clocked 28k Sims around Australia. Now I plan to ridetermine Europe and Americas with minimum luggage. Hope to meet other like minded riders around the world, keep u you guys posted. Cheers
