Hey all.. new to the site..


i'm looking at getting a busa.. either 08 or 09... I know parts wise its like 99-07, and 08-09.. however from the 08 to 09 model - were there any big changes to the bike? engine? chassis? weight? I'm trying to compare which model to start looking into.. but if I find out the 08's had issues or were re-done in a large way i'd rather just go with the 09.. thanks for the replies

Oh - by the way.. I've been riding for almost 9 years now, have had a Ninja ZX6r (first bike) and then 4 years later moved up to a 2003 GSXR 1000. This would be a second bike on top of the 1k... so this is not a first bike or anything like that... and I am mature enough to handle the power of the busa.

There were a few changes, yea. I don't think anything major. Maybe an HP or 2. I'll look for the list or someone may post it up sooner than me.

Below: False. There is a list of tweaks and changes floating around the site.

yes the fastest color was made in 08... the orange and black... :whistle:
That is simply not true and you know it! Now behave, we have a new member here.

Everyone knows, although you will find that few will admit, 05 red/black is the fastest color!!:welcome:
