Hello all, I have been sniffing around the board seeing whats what, and I would just like to announce the arrival of a very healthy
2003 Black/ Silver GSX1300RK3 to the family today.
It is an incredible machine.
I have found out reading the threads that the knowledge here is overwhelming.
I have serviced all my bikes since I was a teenager and was a little intimidated by the Busa, but after 2 readings of the service manual, and what I have seen here. I hope to maintain it and improve it in the fashion it deserves.
First question !!
Whats up with the mirrors ?
I would have to cross my arms to ever see anything behind me.
I am 6'1" and fairly broad shoulder
what is a good replacement?

get the 1" mirror spacers, or simply speed up a little bit.

when you are going 130mph, you dont need to look in the rear view mirror

I personally know 3 racers that got 100 miles on their busa, then took it to the straight track. I wouldn't worry too much about breakin, except get a couple thousand miles on her before using synthetic oil.

Regarding the mirrors, I have narrow shoulders, and have to move my head side to side to see around myself. Get used to it.

Congrats on the bouncing baby busa!!

Congrats on the bike. Haven't seen you around in a while. Enjoying the snow up there? I am 6 ft and I can't see out of the mirrors, but that is always the way with sportbikes.

Congrats on the new arrival. You never mentioned whether it was a boy or girl though. Just remember to have him circumcised if it's a boy. If it's a girl, you'll just have to figure that one out on your own.
