Things to look out for.


I am hoping to secure a used Busa soon. I was wondering what should i be looking out for, besides the usual subframe, crash damage, curbed rims ....etc.

Are there any other gremlins hiding in the Busa?

Sorry to post this thread here, i think it should be under 1st time void, but somehow, it would not let me start a new thread there. Would appreciate any helpful comments.

Hopefully i can find one soon........
First of all, The 1st time void section is for those people asking us if the Busa would be a good first bike to learn on. So you are right to post here.
I'm not sure about this one but I think that the 1999s had a recall on the fuel pump. I do know that both the 99s and 00s had a recall on the cam chain tensioner. This is one thing that you will definitely want to make sure was done. I have a 2000 and bought it new. The cam chain tensioner is the only recall that I am aware of. Other then that I am very happy with it.
Make sure the guages match the bike, so you know the mileage is correct.

Can u please elaborate? What do you mean by "match the bike"?

Do you mean that the milage shown is reflected in the bikes condition?
