i hear they dont have any secondary flys to restrict them n they have 2 injectors just simply remove the flys remap n you should then have more horse than the busa over a wider rpm range

and while am at it.. I wonder why someone doesnt use the frame from the CBR 600 F4i, with a 1098 from duc thrown in for good measure. That should be a pretty sweet track / road tool..... ( wrong section, I know, but was just wondering... both the kwacker and the Busa arent exactly easy on the knees / shoulder.... )






why on earth you would want to down grade the f4i

It appears to me that the only thing different in the engine is they ported it out. To change the engine drastically would have cost, I'm guessing 20m to 40 million dollars in re-tooling costs and I currently don't see the Busas selling off the shelves like i-phones. As for aerodynamics they hit the nail on the head. It's great and well thought out. Ugly, probably but very aerodynamic. Can anyone confirm if this seat holds two people?

In regard to Bonneville and land speed racing, they won't be in the 14's 1650 class. The 14 holds the World record at Bonneville as the fastest stock bike of any class. Last year the stock Busas were 15 mph slower. Maybe with their new engine and "twin swril chambers"-- they will only be 10 mph slower.



If all stock bikes are suppose to be limited in top speed (186mph). How do you pull off a stock bike record, or is there something else involved? If you could direct me the the source of that info. Thanks!

i have been looking and looking at the pix of the new Busa and something was appealing to me, but i couldn't put my finger on it.

Finally it dawned on me that what i REALLY like is the way the tail curves down rather than having a painful looking pointy ass end like the liter bikes.

The rounded tail reminds me of the old road racers.

I LIKE it!

(i ain't gonna buy one yet, but IMO Suz is going in the right direction)

You eliminate the speed limiter which will gives you the bike's true top speed potential. On the 14 it is quite simple to do.

why give the hayabusa more stroke..? It already had a monstrous 63mm stroke.. going to 65 on the stroke is just going to lower piston speed.. For any given displacement the bike with the shorter stroke makes more horsepower.. The 1.5 point in compression increase is good however.. But I don't think its going to blow anything out of the park with those specs.

agreed, but only at uber rpm

more stroke = better hp at lower rpm... more useful for the street.

IMO that's why the 99-07 Busas walk the ZX12's in roll ons.

I have NEVER LOST a roll on a with any busa anywhere.. whether it was a pipe and pc3 or how it is set up now.. As a matter of fact even the best challenge jumped me by 1/2 bike length and I walked him from 7000 all the way to the limiter... Has anybody seen

Increase the stroke, you increase mean piston speed.

at 7800-8200 the 12 gets on the nice part of its hp curve. Try that same roll-on from 4000...

and yep, i certainly have seen all of the Mach vids (5 years ago), but facts is facts, long stroke makes hp down low better than short stroke for the same cc motor.

My neighbor's VTX positively rockets off a stop light (up to about 50mph)

Long before the 14 was released to the public in 06, it already had SEVERAL head-to-head tests against the Gen1 busa. In every perceivable category. Restricted and de-restricted!


Don't you think that KAWK had several busas to test and tweak their 14 to, or do you think that it was created in a vacuum?


Don't you think that Suzi also had several 14's at their disposal when they were developing the 08 busa?


Don't you think that Suzi bested the 14? That's what they were gunning for, not the Gen1 busa.

The 12 vs the busa in 2000 was a different story.

KAWK was caught with their pants down, by shooting for the XX?

Please educate me! I was told by a lying ass Kaw dealer that it was expensive and there was something to do with the computer. I thought the old ZX12 just needed a speedometer tweek. And by the way what was the top speed for the 14? Also was the other restrictors that the busa has on it removed also like the pair valve?

Expensive? That's laughable. It uses the gear indicator to know the bikes in 6th. No 6th, no speed limiter. You with me?

I have heard of two spark plugs per cylinder, but not two injectors. Is this a way of making the engine more upgrade friendly? I can't wait to see that bad mutha in action. My guess is if the 14 did break the stock bike speed record, it will just have to move aside because that is Suzukis' main cagtegory. That was the main intention for the first hayabusa.

I still can't see how a 14 can break a top speed record with that broad front end!

There is a thing called a Speedo Healer. It takes away the limiter. Brock used it to get his stock motored 14 over 200mph.

Mainly used to smooth low end fuel delivery. While maintaining full throttle peak fuel needs.

Injectors are rated at a certain flow rate for peak flow requirements. The injectors are turned on and off very quickly to vary flow rate. At very low flow rates, they are turned on a very short time. Unfortunately, the bigger the injectors, the less accurate this low flow is. Big hp engines need big injectors. Sometimes too big to idle well. So slap a set of smaller injector to manage low speed, add the secondary injectors at WOT.

I have a feeling this was done more for emission reasons.

I don't see moto gp using large strokes and their making only 260 plus bhp with less than 1,000cc. That formula is on par with formula 1..

spinning the tire and being quick at lower speed ranges only lasts so long.. especially if your talking about roll ons and big numbers..

the larger the stroke the less you can safely rev the motor.. you can easily spin a zx12r to 12,200 and keep the piston speed under 5000 fpm..
