Just got back from a trip to the Pyrenees. One of the guys on my trip had a 2001 Busa. The bike is totally std apart from a Corona paint job by dream machine. It has 17K on the clock and I believe it to be one of the last unrestricted ones to be sold. He is the second owner and the first owner was a friend so the bikes history is well documented. I have the opportunity as he wants my bike to do a deal. What I would like to ask is are there any problems with this model. I have read posts that mention second gear but without any descriptions. Is this a selector problem or is it more serious and obviously is it an easy fix ? Is this more apparent on abused bikes ? Basically I would like my hand held in what I should look for. I have been riding over 40 years and do have a reasonable knowledge of bikes. I have never had anything but new bikes but am not in a position at the moment to purchase a newer model. After 1600 miles of riding with the Busa owner can see the bike has not been abused and is absolutely mint. Please help an old codger make his mind up ! Thanks in advance for your input.
