Default Oh no the 1300 is back

well after over two months , I finally picked up the GSXR 1300 , I had the motor rebuilt, new pistons , rings, rods and bearings,cam chain, guides, tensioner ,clutch , and all the gaskets. Didnt do anything with the bore.,left it stock, no hoening necessary with the nickelsil liners, I also had the shift forks replaced and second gear undercut . Bike also has new sprockets and chain. My next plan is to buy a 2009 or 2010 hyabusa and then bring my 2000 back to the engine builder to have it turbocharged ,and add an airshifter system with an on board compressor . Im then going to put a 240 rear tire kit and a slighter longer swingarm . My guy who builds these machines also has a nice set of guages, boost, oil and fuel pressure ,as well as the mixture on his bike ,which i also want to complete the project . Hopefully next year ill have the money to get the new generation Busa as well as the turbo.

Jesus Christ, 1,300 ccs is a lot of bike. After two years, my 600 is still plenty fast. Can you post some pictures? Bike threads are pretty flimsy without pictures.


I need an Aventador!

Ah, the 'busa.. brilliant bike for touring, load it up with as much luggage as it'll hold and it still feels light due to the low-down weight distribution.
I must admit I'm against the whole extended swingarm, larger rear wheel thing.. magnesium wheels, carbon bodywork (etc etc) to lighten it up is the way to go, but that's just like, my opinion dude.
Brilliant bike

hello Sir, good morning,,yes i do know what you mean when talking about the larger wheel. extemded swingarm..i have always been a " love the factory set up?" but my friend Ray has an 08 with a slightly extended swing arm and a 240 kit,,and it looks really cool, so i though having that set up for the turbo would help things stay on the ground,and that 240 make for some very long 2nd gear burnouts,anyways thanks for your reply..Brett

Does having a 240 on the rear effect the cornering/turn in? I should imagine it must do? Have you got a pic of your friends 08? ..be interesting to see one if poss
I'm with you, I didnt really used to play around with the settings that much on my bikes, but I used to hoik the back end up on the zx7r I had just to try and increase the turn-in speed, as it was indeed like turning a large boat at high speed. You had to hang off it like a crazy person to get it to change direction at anything over 120mph.

Wow - 240 in the rear! That's fat!

Also, those 348 wheels look good on your 328!
