    JUST GOT ATTACKED while on the BUSA

    I must agree. I have a hard-on for Busa's, thus owning one. But, the day that my wife and I walked into the Suzuki dealer, and she said, "Oh look, that red *pink* busa matches my lipstick!".... I decided not to sit on the bike doing a "Vroom Vroooom"...

    Damn thieves just tried to steal my bike

    yea, the dolly/jack is an easy way to get a bike stolen. I think using a wheel lock with an alarm is the way to go. As soon as you lean the bike up to start pushing it away, the siren goes off. That would scare anybody away that doesn't want a baseball bat across their cheek.

    JUST GOT ATTACKED while on the BUSA

    Diesel, I have the answer as to why the Pit was chasing & biting you.  The owner is a Kawa ZX-12 rider.  He had just gotten beat by a Busa the week before.  He was so heartbroken as he came home, he didn't leave the house for a week.  Therefore, he didn't come outside to feed "Fido" for several...

    Hey E, Install a motion activated flood light overlooking your Busa parking. 500W light comes on, most people would run away. Give that a try. Also, put the red velvet rope around the busa like at the movies. Nobody can cross over the velvet.:p

    120MPH and Caught, do you run?

    Hey gcal, I sold my Busa last weekend. I now own a KTM 625 SuperMoto. Be on the lookout next week in this post. I'm gonna tell you a story about how I had the throttle wide open, and passed a cop doing 90 mph!!!

    gcal, I put the kanji on wrong, on purpose, numbnuts. My customized version. Go back to bed.

    I have the small flush-type lights on my fender eliminator, and NO, you don't need to move them. Mine are really close to the muffler, but they don't melt. The carbon mufflers don't get hot enough.

    Sorry, can't find my other picture of the HMF's from the rear, but here it is on a different bike:

    Here are my current HMF high-mounts. Hey, is there a way that I can add a video to the message board? I have a quick clip of my bike doing a corner, with sound, so you can hear the pipes...(???)

    Brudeh, I've had 3 exhausts outside of stock thus far. I'm like you, and preferred to keep the dual cans look. I've had the dyno on all 3 aftermarket sets. My 1st setup with just bolt-ons to the stock header, actually gave me the most hp's. (and sounded the best I think). I had what's called...

    120MPH and Caught, do you run?

    Uh oh, here we go... GOOD LUCK in getting gcal to believe your story. He's a firm believer that although the busa can do almost 200 mph, once there is a cop introduced into the story...the busa is no longer capable of that speed. He thinks that you could be going 190 mph down some straight, but...

    2nd gear slipping!!???

    I've already replaced my clutch, and it doesn't slip anymore. But, I still get the 2nd gear *jerk*. I've been listening to your advice about the fork shifter, and 2nd/6th gear needing replacement. I had a suzuki mechanic friend of mine tell me that it could possibly be the torque converter in...

    120MPH and Caught, do you run?

    Ok slow learner, last time... racing down an old Alabama country road, no traffic, there was a cop, we were on a several long mile(s) straight. It took a little while to get to 190, but we had PLENTY of road. It was an unmarked cop car, all white. He was just driving, probably off duty. The 2...

    120MPH and Caught, do you run?

    No, you can't maneuver the bike at 190. You are right. We didn't have any curves. There was a slight hill, in which he came over the hill towards us. We couldn't see him before it was already too late. NO, it was not the smartest thing to do at all. That is why I've stopped haulin' ass through...
