Sportbike: 02 busa

Whats up people Sorry that i have been out of the site for a while but the move from military life to the real world is not that cool. but here is my question i am thinking about going from my loved 02, 1300r to a 03, 1000 just because of the cornering and handling of the bike is this a good move or should i stay with the top speed demon? By the way the mods to the bike are done: Bde full system, 16:41 gearing, air box mod, pc3r, timing retarder,new rs3 tires......I think that is it i dont remember. But info would be great now.....

Personally I wouldnt do it. I really dont think its going to be that much of a difference.

But if you decide to and have chrome wheels I want them before you get rid of it

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

A couple of things:

You can upgrade the suspension and optimize the geometry and it will feel like a different bike!

The GSXR1000 seems as if it would be a more finicky machine, more prone to wheelies and less comfortable ergos. Not as good for longer trips. I suspect it would feel pretty different from the Busa.

Do you think the Busa is slowing you down in the turns? Somehow I don't think so.

a busa slows me down in the turns..1 ground clearance, 2 curb weight, 3 stock geomitry.

so far between my borther in laws busa, i touched down both mufflers barley turning (somewhat) and then i touched down carlos's busa right hand side muffler too.
plus i noticed....just the other 9r agasint was a dead match on a roll on.

muhahahaha and his is modded too. :P
