BUSA Short swingarm?

So now it comes time to have more throttle control. While riding twisties I like to use a lot of RPM and less braking, but it tends to lift the front wheel up - even leaned over. You have to find the balance between how you ride and the wheelbase.

the bike felt fine at high speed for me. drop the front like half an inch when you do this and it will be an incredible difference. pick up a rivet link from a bike shop, just cut the links out of your stock chain and link it back together no problem. bike handled incredible on the short arm, i just had issues with the 600 arm as it twisted/sheared on me.. and the 750 arm bumps into my HMF dual high mounts. Worked great though, I just wanted the exhaust more than i wanted the short arm. wen tback to stock length and raised the rear and kept the front dropped 1" and its still pretty decent

the busa is a bike where you go in hot, slam the brakes, and throw it in and accelerate. a TRE helps this as the timing isnt retarded in te lower gears, i can light the tire up leaving every turn on a tight road if i wanted to. its not just a bike you can lean over and have ground clearance forever... plan on scraping **** when you get good enuf.

Did the 600 arm twist because it was not made to take the tourqe porduced by the BUSA or was it just a manufature defect?

no brace, constant beating on, stoppies, etc.

I wheelie instead of spin, but I am not on a 'busa.............and I am good enough :-) I was just pointing out that a reduced wheelbase tends to shift you to more of a wheelie than spin setup.

its not that big a difference as far as making it a wheelie monster. i can do better wheelies with the longer bike now lol.

I have to be careful to not wheelie...........100+RWTQ at the RPM I am using in the twisties.....and 16/43 gearing :-) I don't like to wheelie a lot cuz I know what will become of my fork seals....
