The 2009 Hayabusa – The Mods so Far

Hi all, I have been thinking about my Hayabusa and what I have done to it so far and I thought I would go through all the mods I have made and the pros and cons of them. Starting at the front and moving backwards:

Front Tyre – The standard tyre for the Gen 2 is a Bridgestone BT015, but technology has moved on. I had tried a S20 front with a T30 rear, and was happy with it. When the front tyre wore out I went for a T30 front too, at first I thought I had made a huge mistake the bike felt wrong and nervous at the front. I thought about it for a bit and thought about the tyre pressures. The Busa is slightly funny with tyre…

I was toying with the idea of buying a rather expensive bike, like a KTM Superduke 1290 or a BMW S1000R but I thought having over £7000 sat there in a bike that I never seem to have enough time to ride would be a waste. Sooo I decided that a cheaper do-er up-er would be a better buy, it would give me a project to work on and a bike to ride when I didn’t want to ride the Hayabusa. So I started to look round for a bike that would be a nice project but wouldn’t break…

Hayabusa Update 2018

I’ve not posted about my Hayabusa for sometime and as it is my main go to bike I feel this is a little unfair!! The Busa has sat there patiently while other bikes have come and gone, I feel that it might be like the grunts in the Vietnam war, not getting to know the new guys because they might suddenly not be there anymore 😉 Anyway I will go through all the mods I have done and intend to do and you will see there is not a huge amount left to do on the Busa, except ride it!!!! So from front to back here goes:
