I'd say sometimes it's better , sometimes not . I've had a few GSXR's over the years an' Ninja's an' yadda yadda....
Sometimes you lose a little "driv-ability" with an' aftermarket system . Some of them take away a little bottom end (low RPM's) in exchange for better mid-range an' of course top end. Which can make it a little harder to get off the line smoothly , especially when carryin' yer favourite lady friend. You end up having to rev it higher , an' slip the clutch a little,in order to leave the line without depositing yer pillion on the ground .
I'd be interested to see if its been properly tuned for the new system . You wanna talk to who ever installed it,or a trusted mechanic . Have a look around yerself for a Yosh box , a Power Commander , etc . They usually get hidden under the hump/pillion , the pilots seat(not usually on a Busa thou) , or the cavity under the fuel tank .
If its not properly tuned , yer lookin' at 2-5 hundred in parts(Yosh,PC,etc) , 2-4 hundred in labour(dyno,mapping,etc) , depending on where you live.
Lets us know what the system is an' we can help you from there .
Hav a good 1.....welcome to Busa Heaven....RSD.

WarBlade: Nice Busa and welcome to the forum! Definitely Yoshi pipes. Rubbersidedown's comments are very important. Take his advice. Make sure the bike is properly "tuned" for that modification (MAP, powercommander....etc etc). Bike will run better that way and you don't want to risk having your bike in the shop all summer.

From the looks of the bike, nice chrome wheels and some other chrome parts...., the owner probably took care of it and did the necessary adjustments, but you want to make sure. Get a good mechanic to look at it and have it properly tuned.
It is worth the time and money.

Ride safe.

Oh....and one other item Sir WarBlade......just remember....


The all-black Special Edition Hayabusa's are the fastest color so if you ever ride with Revlis (another intriguing fella on this forum, you will be looking at his rear end the whole time.)

Yes,we are all a little crazy, we must be to ride a bike that goes faster than a Boeing 777 at take-off. As a matter of fact, some of us need electrodes put in our heads we are soooo crazy.........


Be well as you will see, this forum will be very helpful to you. It has saved me lots of money and time and I've only had a busa for a month.

Make damn sure you get the thing checked over by a mechanic before you take it home...That thing has had ALOT of work done and you never know whats lurking underneath.  It could be someones baby that they took excellent care of but it could have also been to the dragstrip every weekend and just about be on it's last legs.  It's been lowered already and that is going to ass up the handling, so if your into corners you have work to do already.  Remember that a prime motivator for custom work is a crash so be sure that everything is up to snuff.  Check under the tail, look at the forks real good, see about getting under the bodywork etc.  

Be careful, The body on that thing is from a 1999 is the rest of it a 2002?  Is it a salvage title?  Or is it actually a 1999 and you are being lied too?  I dunno Man, Keep your your wallet in your pocket until it has been inspected by a mechanic...your local Suzuki dealer would be a good start.  If the sellers balks, do not buy!!!!  You will regret it...

Warblade......you do realize this things heavily modded already don't you.......damn things even got an airshifter on it......which almost certainly means heavy drag race action......you be careful of this one dude.....it's no 2002 unless that guy really liked the 99 copper color and has a good painter.
The system is Yosh with a Trioval can and the thing has been lowered big time.

I'd walk if I were you dude.......too many things not jivin!!!!!

Yeah What Monster said, one other thing?  Have you seen the bike in person?  I am curious because in the top photo it doesn't look like the frame and swingarm have been polished, in the rest it has....Could just be the lighting...I dunno...

Just looking out Bro, It's not my money and I don't know you from Jack, but just looking out for a fellow rider looking to get BusaFide!!!!

Too funny Rev posted that at exactly the same time dude.
I don't think it's just lighting......cuz you'd notice some shine somewhere.
Yeah Your right, if the pipe and wheel is shinning then we should at least se something off the passenger footpegs, swingarm, or frame... Looks like two different bikes, we only get a full shot of the one, and only rear halves of the other....

Warblade...you out there?

Warblade, no offense just from the little u posted about you and this bike seems way to shakey for me. Thats a 99 unless its been repainted with that color and it has way too much aftermarket stuff for a new to busa's rider. Just my opinion, The price is attractive but I wouldnt recommend you buy it. Better to start with a bone stocker - Kent

Your making the right decision man, it sucks but I gaurantee that there is something jacked up here.  

The guys add makes no sense, and refusing to meet you in person w/Vin # means it's stolen or salvaged or just doesn't exist at all...  

Good decision though, keep walking.  Even a 99 Busa in fairly ragged shape should still fetch around $5K I would imagine.  A 2002 in "perfect condition" with all them goodies?  Should be around $10-11K...

Besides, would you buy a car sight unseen without ever seeing it or having it checked? Without any solid contact information for the owner? No way...

If they were dealing with PayPal, told you to come right on up and check it out, let you take it to a mechanic and had a clear title to show you? Then no sweat...but nothing adds up here...

Anybody have a Busa they want to sell Warblade?
