Hi all,

Ive been riding on and off since the late 80's, Ive owned

750 Yamaha Seca
650 Yamaha Seca Turbo
750 Honda Nighthawk
750 Yamaha Virago
1200 Yamaha V-Max

I sold my V-Max and now im gathering a set of full leathers and
other sport bike riding gear, then I'll go in search of a new
Busa, I rode my max in chaps/jacket/gloves/helmet, but
the buckles/zippers and stuff on them would scratch up
a sport bike.

I loved the power of the V-Max but the frame was so weak
it would twist under heavy acceleration, and it had bad
headshake over 100 even after doing several mods to try and
eliminate it. I also had to replace the pegs before i sold the bike
since I had scraped a bit off them in the twisties.

Im 35, 5'7" and 260 lbs, and when I sat on the busa it was
a bit high but otherwise comfortable, how much lower can
you get the bike w/o adversely affecting the suspension
and handling?

Anyway cheers, and keep the shiny side up.

...from what I have read on this board, I think the busa can be lowered 1-3 inches pretty easily. VaBusa has a lowered busa, I suppose you could PM her and ask her!!

Welcome to the board!

I've been a member just a short while, but the amount of knowledge here is staggering. (as is the opinions!)

You will not regret your purchase. This bike is it.

Oh...and loose the chaps, that would truly be a party foul.

Welcome!!!

I would give it a few hundred miles before you lower it. Unless you are going to drag race it I would reccommend leaving it the stock. Ultimately it is your preference so when you get your ride try it both ways and see how it works.
