Re: Turbo fitting on a busa

Big money for big HP and problems with insurance on the road, maybe check that out first.

This is what it used to cost (confirm with them beforehand) ;

Re: Turbo fitting on a busa

What's the point unless drag racing it?

Turbo busa on the road makes no sense.
Massive cost, reduced reliability and not all that useable.

For the cost of a busa and a turbo conversion would you not be better off buying a new kwak z1000s H2 with a turbo and a warranty?

Re: Turbo fitting on a busa

I started getting the bits together to do mine, then decided against it due to the fact that I'd still have a shit handling bike afterwards, and I moved on to another silly project.

All it'd be good for is top speed wheelie competitions and showing to people for bragging rights. Fair play to you if you'll be using it for the former.

Jack Frost knows turbo busas inside out at this stage. Hes done heaps of them, other than him youd probably have to go across the pond

I get where you're coming from. It's something different, but 99.9% of the population couldn't handle a stock 'busa, and Irish roads are dogshit, so what are you hoping to achieve?
You have the guts of 200bhp on tap with a stock 'busa. Have you even tried to tap into that? I couldn't keep mine in rear tyres. They were lasting less than 500 miles, so unless you're drag racing it, what's the point? It's already been done to death. Why would you want to follow in the footsteps of stretched swingarm yanks, with nothing more to show for it (after spending 10+ grand on it) than something that's been done to death already?
Turbo 'busas have been done to death. If you want something different, do a turbo 1127, because everyone and his dog with a few quid hasn't already done it. But if you just want to show your mates that you have money, and are prepared to spend it on any old shit that'll make you look good (in their street hawk tinted eyes), then go for it, but it's hackneyed as fuck, and akin to beach buggies for cagers, IMHO.

You could say the same thing about a Ducati, and some would have you believe that anything more than 600cc/100bhp doesn't make sense on the road either unless you're John McGuinness.

Fair enough they'd be unusable in the wet, but when it's not an everyday bike then as a general rule of thumb; you can never have too much power, and the Stage II seems to be best bang for buck.

Those Kawasaki H2's arent really that fast, and if you tune them or increase the boost pressure I'd say they'd blow up a lot quicker than the tried and tested hayabusa engine.

Just put aside some bucks for M50 callipers

Steve in NDM has one of the fastest Hayabusas i have seen on the road that is completely rideable.....a weapon.......over 200 brake ...and vastly lightened. HE has done all the work ...


Brian of Embassy Motorcycles in Wexford would be a good contact , he may still have his ....

Re: Turbo fitting on a busa

Much more unique and way then a turbo Busa
http://www.mrturbo.com/turbo-sys/kawasaki/zrx/zrx.html

I have ridden one of these and it does make a stocker feel a bit weak as it were. But I dont want to spend that kind of money.

Not the one in the picture, a fellow Rexer had built a very nice one stock swingarm

Even on a stock motor the brakes are fucking scary ,find yourself using the throttle to drive out of a situation you know the brakes cant handle
