Busa race

Well I got a friend of mine who is trying to set up a race for me. Or should I say volunteer me. He bragged my bike up to some guy who has a 2002 busa with a turbo. He told the guy that it was impossible to hold down in 1st and 2nd also comes up just as quick. I think its pushing about 200 to 235. Ive heard that it goes hard. But I wonder if I stand a chance. I have all the mods that I can except pistons. And damn this thing is fast. Im guessing I have a comparable range of hp to the other guys on this for with the same mods. The only thing is I only weigh 125 lbs. So it does things for me that it won't do for other people that are larger. anyway just thought I would put it out. Gotta get a new tire before I do that. Any suggestions on a good tire would be helpful. Was thinking of the conti hypersport. But not sure if its a piece of junk thanks

I think you could take him. A liter bike can definately hold it's own with any of the bigger bikes at the strip, just don't expect to go any further without them going right past you though.

a. Ask his 1/4 mile time.
b. Compare it to yours.
c. If there's HUGE difference, you got your answer.

depending if he is willing to open up the Busa I think you will get Spanked bad if he is just a decent rider even with your weight advantage. I am basing my opinion on your mods compared to a turbo....doesn't look like you will have enough power to get it done. Good luck though and don't race for money

Go to a raceshop and see if you can get yourself some slicks, preferably some take offs that are partially used. You can save a grip of cash, you won't waste your street tires and you'll get insane grip to boot.

If you're doing it at a drag strip and you're a hard core racer, you have a chance. Not all people can launch. If the guy is much bigger than you, it's even better, but if he's got skill and with all the power his bike has he will probably get you.

Then again, sounds like you are making some power yourself.?? Good luck

This race is going to be decided on rider skills only. If your swb any decent tire will do. My buddy went 9.4x's with the stock Bridgestones on his 08 Busa when it was swb. The reason why I say it's going to be based on rider skills is because even with the extra power of the Busa he is going to have to use it. A couple examples, My buddies 08 Busa is now lowered sitting at 61" with just an airshifter, Yoshi full exhaust, PC3, and Shinko U-Soft and he went 9.18 last friday night. Another guy with know with an 1st gen Busa with a Velocity Stage 1 or 2 turbo with boost controller sitting at 64" making 275 to the wheel only went 9.16 and thats his best pass on the bike to date. He probably weighs 60-80 pounds more also.

Well the guy only weighs 30 lbs more than me but the bike is also about 75-100 more than mine. So im guessing that his extra hp gets sucked up by the extra weight. But that only matters when he is taking off. The guy says he tops out at 165 in 5th gear. I am just wondering what happened to sixth and does it seem like it is geared down. Oh well I guess I will wait for the tire to come in.

i agree with the above, once that bitch spools hes gonna be a rocket, the turbo busas at the 1/8t mile here can spin the tire the entire track, not to mention my friends big bore busa still runs slower then the turbo bikes
