Default mcantar's 2008 Busa - The Abomination

For those who haven't seen the build thread in the regular forum, here's what we've got so far...

I ride with a pretty regular group and a few of them have Busa's. They've been giving me shit about my "small" bike (FZ-1), and I shove it in their face by keeping up with them on the road. I think they're the ugliest fuckin bikes to ever shit out of someone's head, and had mentioned that I would never get one of those gaudy, heavy, stupid things... but if I did I'd strip it down and show them what a real bike is.
Not long ago we were riding and one of them high-sided at low speed, damaging most of the plastics and not really anything else, and then instead of fixing it bought another one of the same year and color.

SOOOO.... fuck me, time to follow through on my shit talking. Gonna lose some serious weight and get some Hollywood-level plastic surgery. It would have cost me a few hundred to just fix what was broke, but where's the fun in that?


Plans/ideas, subject to change at any moment without any forethought...
- Remove fairings and do associated bullshit (i.e. clean up wiring and coolant overflow).
- Build subframe for tail.
- Find or make a tail. Going for the RC8 look there.
- Make a CF+Kevlar tank, cause this one's dented and I'm too cheap and don't care about it enough to buy a new one.
- Do something about a headlight... either modify the factory stuff or build my own from scratch with Fglass/CF. Had an interesting thought on this involving the stupid rear hump cowl thing.
- CF windscreen as I ride a lot, everywhere, all year and want a little wind/fly protection.
- Maybe a SSSA. Maybe, probably not.
- Straighter bars. Superbike type maybe?
- Mirrors...
- Set the suspension properly.
- Dash/gauges, depending on how the factory unit flows with whatever I come up with for the front end.
- UV Underglow. Yeah I know what you think and you can fuck right off. I need to find UV LED strips, so if anybody knows of any please let me know. Has to be UV... everything else is flashy and dumb. And it has to be actual UV light, preferably around 395nm or lower (none of that white-light-through-a-coating bullshit).
- Header wrap maybe, if I don't turbo.
- Turbo... maybe...
- James Bond license plate mount.



The breakdown:
- 2008 Suzuki GSXR-1300 Hayabusa with 11,500 miles, new tires, new brakes, and fresh oil - from friend: $5000
- MotoGP style machined aluminum pegs (left side broke off in crash) - Performance Cycle: $34
- Klean Kanteen bottle for coolant overflow (including paint) - from my kitchen cabinet: FREE
- Clear hose for coolant overflow line - from Barley Haven Homebrew Supply: $4
- Brass fittings and hose clamps for coolant bottle - Lowe's: $15
- Fancy clamps for coolant bottle - O'Reilly Auto Parts: $7
- Windscreen - sold: -$30
- Right side fairing - sold: -$150
- TurboXs blowoff valve - coworker - Traded for e-cigarette
- Forge manual boost controller - coworker - Traded for e-cigarette
- B-King triple clamps - eBay: $400
- Freshly rebuilt T3/T4 turbo with ceramic bearings, Garrett exhaust housing, ITS compressor housing, Turbonetics center section, partially completed header, partially completed plenum, and TiAL F46 wastegate with rebuild kit - internet forum: $750
- Hoses/lines/fittings/couplers for oil, fuel, boost, vacuum: - On Track Performance: $600
- High-flow oil pump gear, manual cam chain tensioner, Aeromotive 1:1 fuel regulator, 3BAR MAP sensor so tuner can use ECU as a standalone unit - QuickCycles: $200
- APE 60lb clutch springs - CF member mvrk10256: $20
- 2015 Nissan Murano headlights (LED projectors and drivers) - The Retrofit Source: $130
- Billet fuel rail - eBay: $120
- Koso RX-1N - eBay: $200
BUILD COST: $2280
TOTAL COST: $7280
For perspective...
KBB value of stock Busa in my area: $8250
RCC Stage 1 Turbo Kit: $4450

Here's what I'm starting with. I couldn't find a newspaper or anything else, so I printed off a Google search page which has today's date in the search content and a date stamp from the printer at the top... hope that's good enough.

My coolant bottle-to-be. Klean Kanteen painted with semi-gloss black engine enamel, and a small hole at the bottom of the bottle. It just so happens that these bottles are threaded with standard pipe thread pitch and have a 3/4" opening, so off to the hardware store after work for some plumbing.

Got a little done after work. Stripped the fairings and did some tail section stuff.

Took some rough measurements.



Drew up some general shapes and cut them out. I'm a very hands on, visual person, and it'll be much easier for me to create this tail this way. I'll remove the subframe and attach these strips at the mounting points, then tack them together. Once that's on there, I can bend/cut/add/whatever and once I've got the overall shape down, I'll fabricate the actual subframe and wrap it with CF.





As it sits when I left it today. I would still be working on it, but I had to catch a ride home since I rode the bike to my shop. Tomorrow I'll make some real progress.

Pulled some more stuff off and discovered a slight seeping leak from the little oil window at the bottom of the engine. That'll have to be addressed at some point.
Then I tried to mock up the tail skeleton pieces. My eyeball measurements were off a hair, and the holes were about 5 thou too small for the bolts. I also didn't realize how much of a rise there is between the rear seat mount and the upper subframe mount, so things were a little skewed. So I reattached the subframe and stared at it for a good while running through different options and getting sketched out at all the noises my shop makes when nobody else is here.
Took a little break to get some food in me, after which I think I'm just gonna put my gloves on and fuck around with the factory subframe until I like what I see.

Got a very rough mock up of the tail down (minus all of the structural parts of it... just the general shape really... of just the top...). I'm happy enough with that for tonight.

I think I'm going to make two seats/tails/subframes for it. I really like how it looks without anything back there, but but I still like the RC8 tail profile as well. SO I'm gonna do both... hell, it's only 4 bolts to swap them out.

Little subframe work today, repurposing material from the factory subframe...

Last night I welded up the subframe pieces pictured above, got the coolant bottle ready to mount but haven't decided how yet, and I think I figured out the headlight and gauges. Can't upload pics right now but I'll work on it more later today and get some pics posted tonight.

Well CF I've failed you today. I was gonna put a solid day of work in today and then a buddy called wanting to ride... not a whole lot of good riding weather left out here, so we put a couple hundred miles in. A bit chilly and there was a little snow in the canyons, but overall a great ride.
Tomorrow gents... tomorrow...
