    Here's the new (to me) '08 Suzuki Hayabusa, 3 yrs old & still brand new: less than 1000 miles! Only ridden 300 miles a year? We'll change that. Only mods were the slip on R-77's, otherwise bone stock. Still had the nubbins on the tires and the wax on the chain.



    Ready to put on the trailer & head home!

    A clean slate to get started with!!

    UPDATE!! Here's what she looks like NOW!

    Hey Tim,

    I think you forgot the "let's check the speedometer to 170" on your "what's been done" list...

    October 2011 Central Cal Tour...I'm just saying.

    Bringing her home!




    On with it....

    A quick background: Purchased the '00 way way back, still my favorite color scheme, and specifically went hunting for the blue/silver.

    Started with this...



    ...but hated the black rims, so those had to go!






    Several years later, had reached this! Awesome!

    Wrote a rather long-winded page about all the mods that went onto the '00: Can read about that here
    http://www.pashnit.com/hayabusa-mods.htm





    Travelin' machine




    Many, many moons later, it was time for an upgrade.

    Re: Modding the NEW Pashnit Hayabusa

    First thing, get rid of those clunky looking Frankenstein bolts.



    Got these in a forum group buy


    On they go, add a small black cap & we've got a nice clean look.





    Next, let's cover up those unsightly holes in the frame. Frame Caps can be very cheap plastic ones, or some very nice chrome caps with the Kanji hand painted. These have a threaded rod that runs through the frame. We'll also get some for the axles. They are simply hand tightened.

    Some options here for you:

    Much better!



    The footpegs also fit into my Clunky category plus that ginormous feeler has to go.



    Generically called slash cut footpegs, here are some options for the Busa; we carry everything from super-bling & spike, to racing pegs like these.

    http://www.pashnitmoto.com/Default.asp

    This is an Oberon peg, sourced from the UK. These are well worn and pulled off my '00. The front pegs are interchangeable, the rear are not between the two Gens.

    And lighter!



    Much cleaner.

    Re: Modding the NEW Pashnit Hayabusa

    Why toss the stock pegs?

    Well for one, those super-long feelers fit into the category.

    2ndly, when you're leaned over, get to put the ball of your foot right on the end of the peg. Point, lean and go!!

    Re: Modding the NEW Pashnit Hayabusa

    Next we'll also toss the stock shift lever & brake pedal for folding models. Why swap those out? If you've ever watched your buddies bike fall over in a parking long on a long multi-day ride and watch him snap off his shift lever? That'll make the decision for you. Yes, that's actually happened on a Pashnit Tour.

    Stock brake pedal


    Emgo Folding Shift Lever & Brake Pedal. These are low cost, and will someday save the day.

    Go Here to Purchase:

    Re: Modding the NEW Pashnit Hayabusa

    On the Busa, taking off the brake & shift lever, you'll need an alan wrench and a snap ring pliers.




    Remove snap ring






    Remove the springs - is you have a Spring Puller tool, use that preferably.



    Spring Puller Tool



    Then the rear cotter pin for the brakes



    Sweet! Got brake pedal off nice and clean. Take the new folding pedal and install.

    Re: Modding the NEW Pashnit Hayabusa

    The Shift Lever is a bit more involved, but still easily done. No need to take the rearset off on this side:




    Once we got that off, can compare to make sure everything matches.



    On the Gen-II (08+) Busa, the shift rod is a different length then the Gen-I (99-07). Here's a pic of both. The Gen-II (-8+) is shorter, but still works just fine.



    Just remember when you put it back together, the shift rod has reverse threads on it.



    On goes the snap ring:



    Seems simple enough, but it needs to be adjusted. Hop on bike and put your foot where it would rest, then shift through the gears. Adjust the shift lever up or down with the shift rod.


    All finished!

    Tim... I met a guy with a Busa while on a trip... he put a turbocharger on his... is that something you are considering? I guess his was "scary-fast".
