I've got an '00 blue/silver 'busa. Bought it brand new in Sept. '00. Only mods are a Yosh pipe, K&N air filter and re-map.....what else does a 'busa need?

Just put some Michelin HPX's on it, and they are the best tires I've ever had on it. Handles better than the Bridgestone's and Dunlop's I've used in the past. A little pricey though, but worth it.

Really enjoy it.... everytime I ride it, it still thrills the he$$ outa me. I've been fortunate enough to have never been down on this bike.

Been on several long distance trips with it, and it's fairly comfy....

YA THINK???

Yeah it's the limited. I absolutely love it. I mean of course the difference in weight between the busa and any 1k is most definitely noticeable, but still a 1k just doesn't compare to the looks of the Busa or seeing people's faces when you tell them what you ride.

Correction on my last post. It's not the limited.

I have an 04 Ltd. I put a full Micron exhaust; Heli bars and a ZG dubbub. I really am happy with this bike. I went from a Y2K V Star 1100 to a ZRX1100 to the Busa. The ZRX is a really a fun bike (so fun that I kept it...) but the Busa excels in every area. Power, acceptable comfort and a great handler. Scarface

I love Busas, but I'm not fond with the passenger seat. I take it the cowl is easy to remove? I don't know if I've seen an 03 or older with a passenger seat. .

Kind of a pain you have to unbolt the pax grab bar before you can install the seat cowl, but once you do that it's easy.

YA THINK???

There is a mod you can do to the seat cowl. with a little grinding it will fit without removing the grab handle.
