Okay guys, this is it!

I traded the 10 in for a Busa.. Im building a boosted Busa instead.. I loved my 10, but I just had to realise that no matter how sweet it might be, it got nothing on the Bugly when it comes to boost.. SO there you have it.

Im still going to hang aaround though.. You guys are great and this forum rocks!

I disagree, the ten can be boosted quite nicely. You'd just have to put an extra 1 1/2ft on the swingarm.lol I thought I would just wait till I pay off the ten and see if I could find a descent used/wrecked busa. You just can't hate on all the parts (good and bad) that are out there for those GSXR's

Good luck, post pics

Although it's not posted on their website anymore. . . Muzzy used to offer a turbo kit for the 10R that theoritically pumps out 400hp, but they recommended dialing it back to about 275.

I got this info from Sept. issue of MotorCyclist, page 104. I looked it up when it was first published, but it appears to have since been taken down off the site.



If you're anywhere near the Louisville Kentucky area, check out my local sportbike forum, Louisville Sportbikes!

I have also seen turbo kits for the 10r. I rather like the idea that te 10r would be underrated against the busa when it comes to straight lines, so I woulda kept the 10.

Hope you like what "everybody" else has. I like to be different and have challange. I'm always out numbered when I go to the strip and I love it!!! Hope you don't regret it later.

I love being a minority at the strip with the 10. It kicks the crap out of 95% of the bikes that show up. Even built busas.


I live my life a quarter-pounder at a time. And for those 500 calories or more, im free. I need FRIESSSS! Two of them. The big ones. Oh, and I need them tonight. You're lucky the double shot of BBQ sauce didnt blow a seam on your nugget box.
