    Busa Smells And Noises

    Definitely not brake fluid or leaking forks, I just replaced all the Hydraulic lines (brake and clutch) no leaks also just had the fork seals redone last summer no leaks. Also the brakes feel good. I'm afraid I'm just going to have to tear in to it to find the problem. I was really hoping to...

    Busa Smells And Noises

    I wondered if it could be something like the clutch bolts, but no it doesn't account for the smell. :/ I had it in for the ignition switch amd the voltage regulator, haven't heard of one for the clutch bolts, I'll have to look into it. The bike has 33000 miles so might be good to at least peak...

    Busa Smells And Noises

    Maybe this should be in the engine section but..... My 08' started last year on longer trips I would occasionally smell clutch (brake?) It would only last a few seconds and if I would stop the smell would be gone. I thought it was another vehicle because how would you smell something on the bike...

    Am i lucky or is the info i found wrong?

    Long story short I have an 08 with just under 16k miles. I rode to the dragon from Ohio a week back when I got there I found my chain stretched. The chain is still factory so I thought it odd that it would stretch with this many miles on it. I looked through post and found the limits of the...

    I could use some help

    I'm heading out tomorrow to look at an 08 busa. It has 6100miles on it and a really good price. It's only 8300. At least from what I've found its a great price. I've talked to the guy he said he bought it at auction and does not know the original owner. It does have a good clear title. What else...
