Busa is a NOOB
Default Noob first time builder

Hey all, looking at my first build and I was wondering if it's really that much harder building from a bare frame up or whether I'm better off starting off stripping a complete, running bike.
The difference will be whether I start this week or in 6 months time.

Cheers fellas

Depends on what you're wanting to build. Full custom... probably easier to start at a blank slate. Swap the headlight and tail for appearances, gonna be easier with a complete bike.

Hypermotard 1100S the weight-shavening.
Bandit 1200 cafe/fighter that will never get finished at this rate.
Turbo Busa v2 2017 Buildoff.
Turbo Busa V1.2 2016 Buildoff.
Turbo Busa v1.1
919 Hornet build'n'flip, lotsa electrical diagnostic info in there.

It will be a heavily modded busa all I really need it the motor and frame. Everything else will be non-busa.

The thing that freaks me out the most is the wiring haha

Having done a similar Busa I'd say you're good to go with just the engine and frame. I have swingarms, engine stuff, etc if you need anything on that end.
The wiring isn't difficult. I was a bit intimidated when I did mine as well but it really isn't so bad. PM me you email and I can send you a full-color wiring schematic.

Hypermotard 1100S the weight-shavening.
Bandit 1200 cafe/fighter that will never get finished at this rate.
