    Default 96 GSXR 1100 frame comparison to 1st Gen Busa.

    Just wondering for those experienced in building and specs etc, is there any similarity between the two??

    A guy I was talking to told me the swingarms and the forks are the same etc. Im not sure how true this is etc.

    The main reason I am asking is I am wondering if the rear shock from a first Gen busa will swap into my bike ( 96 gsxr 1100). The rear is sagging a bit now, its not too bad but definitely no two up riding.

    Penske sells a rear shock for my bike as well as the Busa. They rate both units at 7.00" in length howver the Busa has a much higher spring rate. Approximatly 100lbs more.

    I have attached a picture as reference to the shock that is mounted on my bike currently.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Someone here will chime that will be able to help you out. Are you able to compare the top and bottom mounting tabs of both of the shocks?

    Here's my GEN I busa shock that I'm selling. Looks somewhat similar. Busa shocks have a piggyback res. however.GEN I Rear Shock - Hayabusa Classifieds
