Another pack of Newports and a huge steel fairing bracket later:

Sorry for the nighttime pics. More tomorrow, probably.













Pretty good mileage for a total of four months of riding it :)



It's my only vehicle. I'm glad I found a group of people who understand that a Streetfighter spends most of its life as a work in progress... we don't buy them off the floor looking pretty.

I have to move the wiring harness.
I'm going to move the fusebox behind the Cyclops, put turn signals in the SRAD ducts

How do you guys like my gauge mounting? The bar-ends need to be drilled out so the mirrors will look flush and pretty. The mirrors are okay once you get used to them but pretty much useless for anything but watching your back at a light.

After rewiring the WHOLE GOD DAMN BIKE (Jesus, Suzuki, what's with that mess?), and figuring out what to do with the front fender, the front end will be done.

So your guage cluster is on the tank? If there's no interference, a big thumbs up to ya. I like the headlights better since you moved them closer to the forks.

How many miles did it have when you got it?

NICE! i've been thinking about what to do with your front fender for a couple of days now.

i dont know off hand but am curious if they have same mounting points as a gsxr?? that front fender is just SO DAM BIG...worse come to worse you could pull out your cutting tools. we'll find something for ya.

should actually start looking aftermarket, see if anything that fits on the busa is compatible for other bikes. may say something like:

fits busa 01-06
gsxr 1000 03-06

so on and so forth. that would be cool.

Nah, the mounting for the fender is only the same for the TL and that's not exactly an improvement.

The gauges mount in the steering stem and rest forward on the tank. It's really sick to ride it like that.

Gas gauge don't make up for a 560 pound bike :p

And it had zero miles on it when I bought it :)

I don't want to cut the fender because I might make it ugly and ruin it.

Here are a couple pretty pictures of my beast.
I like how wide it looks in the front, gives a bit of a different look than other fighters and makes people ask if it's a VMAX (no joke... i know the 'busa hasn't been updated in a while but it ain't no fossil)








Even the bike chainsmokes.

I've got some CF stickers comin. I'm thinkin a graffiti paintjob would set this bitch off.

I have this poster of an anime style giant robot all broken down and rusted with shit missing and covered in graffiti and it makes me think...

I'd really love to find someone who could graffiti my bike for me.


I actually bought the bike for $1000 still in the crate.
