Sorry I haven't gotten an update lately.  Once the parts arrived, I've been swamped with WORK... :(

Taking her apart before the new parts go on... :thumb:

Well, it's finally time to update the thread a little bit.  I got some time this week to get things installed. :D

Even when I had my 01 and 03 BUSA's something I had always wanted to accomplish was running 200mph.  After a few military deployments and my last BUSA getting totaled, it was time to start a new project.  Since the BUSA is essentially the best platform to build on and the most aerodynamic, where else should I start but with a Gen-II.  It received most of the updates that people wanted on the Gen-I so it only made sense where to start over....

After living in Dayton OH for a few years, I got to know Brock Davidson pretty well.  After seeing what he did with his 08 at Maxton last year, I figured that round of modifications was a good place to start.  For those that don't know.....Brock, Dave, and Lee took a stock bike with some minor tweaks and were able to run over 200mph. 

LINK to the story: http://www.dragbike.com/dbnews/anmviewer.asp?a=3669&z=2



As a privater, regular off the street Joe....I want to accomplish this same feat!  So grab a cold one and follow my path in search of the magic 200MPH at a 1-mile event...  :thumb:

STEP 1: Picking an aftermarket exhaust system!



I enjoyed the Gen-III Street Smart System on my 03 BUSA so when I decided to upgrade the 08, I knew exactly who to talk to....



I decided on a Black Ceramic Coated BROCK's ALIEN HEAD full system exhaust. 

RETAIL PRICE is $1,065 on the system but worth every penny! (If you want it Ceramic Coated it's an extra $250)

LINK: http://prostores2.carrierzone.com/servlet/brockracing/-strse-1390/Alien-Head-Exhaust-System-dsh-GSX-dsh-R1300/Detail

There are many reasons for choosing this exhaust but before I give you my opinion, lets talk FACTS ONLY! 

Using a bathroom scale, I weighed the factory exhaust system when I took it off the bike.  The full header with 2-catalytic converters AND two mufflers weighed 43LBS!!!! You didn't miss read that guys/gals, that's FORTY THREE pounds for a factory OEM exhaust...  :shock: 

The Brock's system with full header and everything weighed right at 8LBS!!!  For those that aren't good with math, that's a weight savings of 35LBS. coming OFF the bike.  There aren't many other things that will drop that kind of weight on a bike.  Not only does this weight savings help in straight line performance but also makes a BIG difference in the cornering department. 

Now to my opinion: The other reason for choosing a Brock's system is simply they can't be beat.  If you want the best quality pipe for the money, best customer service, AND best performance from your bike.....I suggest you give him a call. 

Back to FACTS....everyone wants to know what kind of a performance gain the pipe gave so hang tight for the dyno numbers...  8)

Now that you have a pipe picked out....

STEP 2: Getting some form of tuning device to ensure a proper Air/Fuel ratio!

Since the factory O2 system is NOT a true closed loop system (let alone one that can keep up), you must get an aftermarket tuning device!  There currently isn't a system on the market that will self adjust.  You must have the bike professionally tuned or at least verify the A/F tuning yourself if you are capable.  Again, the factory computer will NOT adjust to the proper A/F ratio...

I've used Power Commanders in the past so I decided to try a new system on the market.

The Bazzaz Performance Z-Fi Quickshift with optional Air Fuel Mapping...




I'll get more info up on this system after I get time to play with it.  Johnny Cheese did the tuning so he may be better at answering any direct questions that I can't answer from the tuners perspective.

The quick and ugly though is that the Bazzaz DOES control ALL 8-injectors!  From a tuning perspective you can only adjust in 500-RPM increments and NOT 250-RPM like the PC.  I'll email Bazzaz and see if they have any plans for updates or additional features.

Z-Fi Quickshift LINK: http://www.bazzazperformance.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=96&category_id=12&manufacturer_id=0&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=26
RETAIL is: $850

*CAUTION*
When installing the Bazzaz harness be very careful with the injector plugs.  The pins inside can bend down and will NOT close the loop on the system.  If your bike doesn't turn on and fire up immediatly after installation, CHECK ALL plugs on the Bazzaz harness and ALL injectors on the bike.
*CAUTION*


I had injector 1 and 3 on the lowers bend down and the bike would not start.  Later on the dyno, I had injector 2 and 3 on the uppers not make contact also.  Check them carefully before/after you install the system.

AFM LINK: http://www.bazzazperformance.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=2&category_id=17&manufacturer_id=0&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=26
RETAIL is: $350



Quickshifter:


I'll have more info on logging and using the AFM self tuning device as I get miles on the bike.  I'll also record the runs at the Texas Mile to see what the ECU and O2 sensor says.  That will also give me an opportunity to test the Quickshifter...

STEP 3: Get more AIR into the engine!

I received a PIPERCROSS RACE filter for Christmas so I figured this was as good a time as any to install it. 



LINK: http://www.pipercross.net/motorcycle/applications.asp?m1=12&m2=263

I didn't get any pics of the filter but will post some OEM filter and airbox pics so you have an idea the difference.

OEM airbox, filter, and velocity stacks!


The next step to get more AIR in was to install all short velocity stacks from a GSXR-1000.

Side-by-side:


All short stacks:




The FINAL step for AIRBOX modifications on the Gen-II BUSA is sealing the RAM-AIR tubes....



LINK: http://www.schnitzracingstore.com/catalogs/catalog.asp?prodid=5025795&showprevnext=1

*CAUTION*
BEFORE YOU DO THIS MOD, THINK LONG AND HARD!  This modification is NOT easy on a Gen-II BUSA.  What took about 15-minutes on a Gen-I took me OVER 4-HOURS to complete on a Gen-II.  The airbox is NOT the same and you will have a long job ahead of you.  My opinion is that it's a major PITA to complete.  It took me longer to finish than it did to take off all the fairings, remove the factory exhaust and re-install them...  :shock:
*CAUTION*


For those willing to attempt...

Start by removing the OEM foam and see how much plastic MUST be removed for installation:


Grind all of the plastic off and install the seals....


It doesn't look pretty but it works...


Finished...

Regardless of what your buddies say down at the local hang out NO BUSA will run 200mph 100% stock or with stock gearing (Gen-II 18/43).  

In order to get the correct ratio to achieve 200mph, I installed a 41-tooth rear sprocket.  Based on factory gearing of 18/43 which is good for around 193-195mph actual speed (not speedo indicated but GPS verified).  In a perfect world, the 18/41 should be good for 205mph but based on wind, drag, tire-slip, etc. I'm hoping it will be enough to eek out 200mph.  It will be very close so I may have to try 18/40 so we'll see...

Vortex sprocket...

RETAIL: $75

Some minor mods...

Some Frankenstein Bolts from Boost-by-Smith to clean up the rear...

RETAIL: $16

WORLD WIDE Ceramic Wheel Bearings:


RETAIL: $395

LINK: http://www.worldwidebearings.com/

As far as break in, the bike was broken in properly (well more of a race style than owners manual recommendation) and then the oil was changed to Mobil-1 at 250-miles. It was ridden on the street for a while and then I changed the oil again before the first Texas Mile race (right at 1,000-miles). After the race, I had the bike dynoed as it sat from the Texas Mile race for the bonestock numbers. I did this so I had an idea how much power it was making when I ran 182-mph...

Once all of the basic mods were complete, I decided to try the Alisyn race oil which is in it now (and during the dyno runs).

Alisyn PRO-DRIVE 21 OIL:

I'm sure by now you guys/gals are wondering why all that stuff.  Well, let's get down to business and post up the RESULTS so far from installing all of these mods...AND ONLY....these mods...   

The next TEXAS MILE event is March 27-29 so I'll have real world results/speeds with my 220lb. ass on board... :D 







Until then what a LOT of people have been waiting for.... 







....DYNO RESULTS!









With the master tuner Johnny Cheese doing what he does BEST............from 100% BONE STOCK to the ONLY changes to the bike posted in this thread....









SHELL 93-OCTANE PUMP GAS!


STD: 194.7 HP 114.7 TQ

SAE: 189.92 HP 111.28 TQ





Running VP MR9 RACE GAS!









Are you ready... :lol:













STD: 199.0 HP 117.1 TQ

SAE: 195.65 HP 113.98 TQ




This is on a 100% BONE STOCK unopened, untouched engine PEOPLE!  :shock: 

I can't wait to ride her and see how she runs.  I truly about pissed myself with the results.  After all the results and info you see posted online, I was going to be tickled if she made 190rwhp on Race Gas. I really can't believe what Suzuki has done with the Generation-II Hayabusa and how much they've given us from the factory.  These are great times people; the Hayabusa really is an amazing platform to build on and I look forward to posting more info as I learn in my attempt to go FASTER!!!  8)


:USA: :moped:

THANK YOU AGAIN Johnny Cheese and Greg for helping me get this thing ready.  I can't wait to see what she does...
:beechug:

Also, THANK YOU to Brock and the guys at Brock's Performance, Greg Smith, Guy Caputo at Tiger Racing and everyone else that has taken care of me over the years! :beechug:

NICE NUMBERS!!

I didn't know Johnny was tuning the Bazzaz boxes....I got a buddy that needs to tune one of those things.

Hey how did the auto mapping thing work?  was it pretty close to the dyno sniffer?

The Bazzaz setup seems to be pretty nice so far but needs a lot of testing still.  It doesn't have all the features that Johnny would have liked to see but it's a start with the 8-injector control.  Maybe they will update the software soon to add a few other features.

We didn't really play with the auto mapper to much because we were running out of time.  BUT....the sensor is spot on!  It was actually more correct than the dyno and confirmed a hunch Johnny had with his machine.  I'm happy with the purchase just wish I could record everything for review later with the mapper.

The only thing that sucks is that the Bazzaz is it's own system.  Since the dyno is made by Dynojet who makes the PC's, you can link right into the system and it all syncs for tuning.  Where the Bazzaz you have to run it's own program so as you are making changes the tuner is having to constantly flip back-and-forth between the two screens/programs when changing the dyno load.  The spare laptop I was trying to use to make it easier wasn't working right so that made things harder also.  You also have to turn the bike on THEN load the Bazzaz software.  It may cause errors or lock the computer if you don't turn the bike on first.   

Maybe Johnny will come give his opinion of the setup...  8)

Out of curiosity, was the Bazzaz box reading richer or leaner then Johnny's sniffer? 

The reason I ask is, when we were tuning mine at Johnny's a month ago, my LM1 was reading about .5 point richer then johnny's.  I also had my laptop up there to tune the Microtech box and run the logger, we ended up using the numbers my logger was showing....For instance, if my logger was reading 11.7-1 afr, Johnny's was showing 12.2-1(which is a tad lean for a turbo but....) we stuck with my numbers....so far, so good, I guess we'll see in 2 wks.... :grn:

My buddy Joe(he is on motohouston also) has the bazzaz with the auto mapper and he can't get the bike to run right when using the "Recommended" settings....he probably just isn't using it right.  I can't wait until someone gets a closed loop system that works and stays closed at WOT.....that will be the shit.

The Bazzaz verified what your LM1 was showing versus the dyno also.  The dyno was reading lean where the Bazzaz was showing .5 richer than his sensor. :thumb:

UPDATE:

Lucky o'l me ran some awesome runs March 27-29, 2009 at the TEXAS MILE....  :yes:

I wasn't trying to get my hopes up based on my size and weight but was shooting for 190+MPH.  I secretly was expecting 195MPH.  

First day PUMP FUEL:
1st pass- 187.817
2nd pass- 188.403
3rd pass- 188.379
4th pass- 191.938
5th pass- 193.012
6th pass- 193.494
7th pass- 195.210
8th pass- 194.207
9th pass- 193.923

I wasn't leaving like I wanted on Friday and was battling a cross wind on the big end running 194-195MPH ON PUMP GAS which had already put me past my goal.  I figured I could try a few things but wasn't trying to push it to hard since I still had Sat/Sun to race and experiment.  

Saturday morning, dumped in the MR9 race gas and first pass out the gate ran 203MPH at stock height, 100% how I ride it on the STREET.  I couldn't believe the number so I hurried to slam her down 3"s to see how fast I could really go.  By the time I got back up to the line the wind was picking up but I managed to launch okay.  Slight wheelie with a bobbled 1-2 and early 2-3 shift but still busted out an impressive number.....





Second day MR9 RACE GAS:
1st pass- 203.741 (stock height)
2nd pass- 204.468 (remaining runs lowered 3")
3rd pass- 203.029
4th pass- 202.244
5th pass- 199.347

With a perfect launch, I feel I could have gone 206 on an absolutely PERFECT run but it just wasn't in the cards.  I tried a few things and then the wind got BAD.  After running 203 again, then 202, and then getting hit with a crosswind that had me leaned over about 10-degrees going through the traps....I figured I better call it quits while I am ahead.  :yes:

Third day:
1st pass- 193.029
2nd pass- 193.477 (tried the double bubble windscreen and didn't like what the bike did with the crosswind)
3rd pass- 193.485
4th pass- 193.099

I couldn't be happier with my speeds and thank everyone for the help and support.  THANK YOU to my wife Sara for going and being my pit crew and getting a bunch of great shots....  :thumb:

I also want to say THANK YOU to Johnny Cheese for the tune, Brock & the guys at Brock's Performance, Guy at Tiger Racing and EVERYONE that has helped me along the way! THANK YOU...
:USA: :beechug:

Remember this is on a 100% STOCK ENGINE, STOCK WHEELBASE bike with the only changes being what's posted in THIS thread... :yes:

.....PERIOD!!!

Awesome write-up!!!!  We are both about the same in height and weight(killer for top runs compared to the 5 foot nothing 100 pound nothing riders).  I have the Brock's short meg, PCIII, and X-TRE along with my bike being lowered and a few other parts removed for weight reduction.  Hoping to go somewhere and see how I can run.  Nervous b/c I have never gone to try a land speed record.  Any pointers would be great and very very helpful.  Thanks again for an awesome write-up and keep on rippin it up.

All I can say is get out and try it, you will never know until you do.  The first time out I would just feel out the bike and racing process; don't even expect to run anywhere close to 200mph.  Take lots of notes and ask lots of questions to see what others are doing.  Like the drag strip, it's all rider and weather conditions (if the bike is setup correctly of course).  If you come out to the TEXAS MILE, let me know and I'll do my best to help you.  If you have any questions or anything don't be afraid to ask...  :thumb:

It's a complete blast and you'll be hooked.  Just a warning once you do it, you will more than likely spend more money trying to go faster... :D

What an absolutely inspirational article, Josh. Congrats on your record. I enjoyed the read. Thanks for sharing your excitement!!

Did you ever hear back from Bazzaz regarding the 250 increments as to whether they were going to change up from the 500rpm adjustments?

Thanks!  I just wanted to show my results with an average size guy on the bike.  Most people don't believe these speeds and then they see a 150lb. guy/girl on board and don't think it's possible.  It's nice to have done my own testing and seeing the results.  Now I just need to decide the next step.  Big Bore, Nitrous, Turbo, Supercharger...???  :?

Bazzaz said they are getting ready to do some updates on the software but don't know if they are going to add this feature.  I told them they really should based on tuning ability and other systems out there but haven't heard back.  I'll give them another call to see if anything has changed... ;)

Finally talked to Bazzaz today and they are still waiting to release the new features.  New tuning capabilities are coming but they couldn't tell me everything just yet.  Sounds like the first changes will be easier smoothing ability of the fuel tables (via the software) and more low end RPM tuning for now but possibly more.  They are waiting for the owner to decide how for to take the upgrades.  I'll post more info when I get it....
