1999 Hayabusa "GSXR Slabside Tribute".

General Information

I present a piece of motorcycle art. . . . my '99 Busa in the very best color scheme ever devised, coming direct to you all from 1985, Blue (JeffGordons fave!) and White.

She started life as a Red/Black 1999 model, NZ new, and was loved by the few that had the pleasure of owning and riding her.

I purchased her June 2014 and in Nov 2017 I fitted these aftermarket fairings to her, custom painted as a tribute to the many GSXR750's and GSXR1100 'oil burners', as Toad affectionately refers to them, that I had owned and cut my teeth on as the sports bike apprenticeship I went through.

Mods; Full Akra with C/F muffler.
K&N filter, Stage 1 Yoshi spec cams, Power Commander3 with Dynojet dyno tune to 168rwhp.

This bike is amazing for it's vintage, always starts and runs perfectly, in saying that it's most likely because I've gone over every part of her and set her back to 'as good as new' condition. Fully maintained and shown A LOT of attention!

Pros: Tasteful setup, lovely fairing set and clean looking exhaust system.
Cons: Is too far to see in person
Awesome job on your 1999 busa! The fairings look amazing and everything comes together nicely! The colo scheme even gives the busa a “light and nimble” look.
