not yet... it is ugly right now. even the red paint on the wheels apparently wasn't done well. when i got the bike, i thought the red was a factory option color. well, after i took soap and water to it, i found out otherwise. now i have these reddish, pinkish, whiteish sort of wheels. doh!

Its hard to make out, but is that a side car set up... where does he put his feet? V8s are cool,, but they have a real problem..they weigh a lot and very hard (impossible?) to make nimble.. My buddy has a V8 trike and its plenty quick,, but a real handfull on anything but a stright line...

definatelt not nimble. I've ridden a boss hoss with a healthy 350 and just the torque of the motor wants to pull you over to one side. but then again a boss hoss isnt out there to do anything more than present shock value.

On a very cold day at the drags in Miami, the annoncer called out that the Michigan Madman was going to do his thing!.. We all ran to the fences to watch him rev up that small block chevy while his crewman pushed it off its stand....Well..it wasnt one of his best days for sure,,, The bike came off the stand,, lit up the big rear tire and suddenly started to do tornado spins on the starting line!!...Smoke and noise everywhere and EJ was on top of the bike going round and round...Whew!!... Ill remember that one forever!!!

Here's my friends '08 Hayabusa. He had me bid on the extended rear suspension and other parts on ebay for him since he doesn't have an account. The rear is extended out 6" from stock and lowered 2".
The box of parts was delivered to my house on friday, he picked them up at 7:30pm and had everything installed (including a chrome tripple tree) by midnight.

He said it still handles around corners like stock but he can take off a lot faster than he used to without pulling the front wheel up.

My boy's happier than a pig in shit.

I'm not too big on "rice" but I love this bike!!

Stock


Extended and lowered.

That bike is sick. First time I honestly scared the living hell out of myself on a bike was on a 'busa. It's frightening how easily the front wheel comes up at 100 mph on them. Straight up. Hell, at any speed, they just have so much power. Bikes like the R1 are far more nimble, but they just don't have that brute force sledge hammer feel of the busa.

The morning after the rear end was put together my buddy's brother-in-law took it for a rip down the street. He laid rubber for a good 200 yards.

I saw a busa just like this one today, and I gotta ask....why extend the swing arm? Is if for looks or does it actually serve a purpose? (other than not wheelie-ing as much) with that much motor I'm sure it will still stand up pretty easy

Extended swing arms are pretty much only for keeping the front wheel[s] on the ground.

No wheelie = Sweeeeeeeeet acceleration

Same reason the sand guys use 'em. You don't want your front wheel[s] coming off the ground when you're haulin' balls up a dune. I imagine it's about the same on the street; try to pass someone on the freeway, front wheel leaves the pavement, .

Or think of it like a dragster, they're long for a reason .

The longer swingarm changes the leverage the rear wheel gets at launch. Stretching the wheelbase and moving the wheel rearward essentially puts more weight on the front. Standing a 180hp bike straight up in the air is not good juju. Being able to do it at 100+ mph in top gear is just sick HP.

Anyone ever see the episode of Pinks where Rich lost it on a bike right in front of the crowd on the return road? classic.
