Busa is done!

As most know, my 99 Busa started popping out of 2nd gear at my last track day at VIR. With the Fall season busy and I wanted to go ahead and get the problem fixed.

I dropped the bike off at Lee's Performance for a little r and r. I have know Lee for quite a few years and know he can work a little magic.

My Busa had 23k and what better time for an upgrade that when the motor has to be apart. My bike had an AKRO pipe, small box mod and an intake cam on the exhaust side basically a Lee's Stage 2. Putting out 175 and change to the wheel.

Lee knows how I ride in the mountains and suggested I stay with the stock bore and just do a ported head, bored throttle bodies and a custom map.

Of course new rings were to be used along with new springs, valves, shift forks and fixing the 2nd gear problem.

I got the call today and with very little street miles the ole 99 put down 187.29 rwhp and 107.57 rwtq.

I also had a Bazzaz shifter installed. It works similar to the Dynojet quick shifter, it just offers a little more adjustment.    

I hope to go and pick my Busa up early next week. A full ride report to follow from the Bash.

Thanks guys! I have been suffering from a HP fix. The ST1100 is a turd, but at least I could still ride while the Busa was down.

As for pricing, Lee and I have a working agreement. We have know each other for quite a number of years and he gets all his OEM parts through the shop where I have been for 12 years.

If you are interested, give him a call at 704-599-1507.
