Switched some things around. This Thing is going to have the motor from the first one.

Well, after thinking about what this Busa's gonna look like when It's done, I decided to keep this creation for a while and sell the first Busa.
I swapped motors with the first Busa but kept the head. This one also has the dual fan radiator from Busa 1. This one has a reprogrammed ECU and Power Commander but will have a little more kick than Busa 1 :tu:  This one will be extended 6" over and lowered front and back.  
  One major issue that I had to fix was the title. Thanks to Ebay, I was able to fix that :tu:  This "frame" comes with a salvage title and a salvage title is better than no title at all!

In the process of swapping the heads and motors. This is the motor from Busa 1. Before the studs were installed it wasn't too hard getting the cylinder block on. With the studs.....  SON OF A B#@$!  I hope I don't have to take this thing apart again!  The center two pistons weren't bad but the outter ones, that was like putting horse shoes on a snake :x
 

I had to fabricate a ring compressor from sheet metal since my other two wouldn't fit within the limited space created by the studs. I know there's a better ring compressor out there, I just didn't have the time or money to get them...




Two hours later...

Cool! The frame? In a nutshell, I bought the whole motorcycle totalled but instead of throwing the frame away I had it repaired. There was a little more to it than that but at least no animals were harmed :bike:

Still gathering parts. Some ebay pics of the custom stuff I bought so far. I bought a bunch of OEM parts too, some will be polished or modified in some other way.

Oh, forgot to mention that I got my ECU reprogrammed at XSVSPORTS http://www.xsvsports.com/store/ecuflash.html Same day turn-around with the parameters I specified and also fuel mapping included, based off of my engine setup. He also does the "popular" modifications as well.  The "buy it now" link on the site doesn't work so you'll have to email sales@xsvsports.com The cost for flashing is $65, which is alot less than I paid for my last two :D

Did a little more work on the motor, degreed the cams in :? There's already a "How to" on this subject so I'm not going to get into that but I set both intake and exhaust to 104.5 (sounds like a radio station?) After five attempts on the intake side I left it with what I had, figured a little under is better than a little over :D I measured the stock and aftermarket piston's valve cutout depths earlier. The MTC pistons have tons of extra clearance for valve adjustments.


It only took two attempts to get my lobe center at 104.5 on the exhaust :lol: I got smart and turned the dial indicator around so I could read it while turning the crank. To mount the dial indicator block I wrapped a piece of sheet metal around a hard piece of plastic then marked and drilled holes in it that lined up with the valve cover screw holes between the intake and exhaust cams.


I couldn't get the flywheel off so I had to improvise with a bolt from Lowe's that fit the center of the shaft. I could've bought one to fit the first set of threads to force it off but figured this was the best route, since there wasn't room because of the dolly.  I used a few spacers to press the degree wheel against the flywheel. The degree wheel kit came from Schnitz Racing

why did you flash the ecu and use power commanders?  Why not just use the ecu?

Hi! I had the ECU flashed to change/remove all the restrictions and raise the rev limit. A decent map was put on it but, since there are a few  different ways to tune a bike, I use the Power Commander to fine tune the air/fuel ratio for how I ride. I could skip the Power Commander and flash the ECU directly but I don't have a bench flasher. A dyno is okay but you'll never see the "real world" information unless you use a data logger. I use a WEGO III and it makes tuning for the street pretty easy. You could, I imagine, use a data logger and a dyno together to tune your bike BUT who rides their bike the way they do a dyno pull? Unless you're drag racing and duplicate the run on the dyno the data is only good for drag racing. The new Power Commanders for newer model bikes have a built-in O2 sensor and the ability to "auto-tune" your bike.
  I'm kinda new at tuning fuel injected bikes but I highly recommend some kind of data logger, if you're a do-it-yourselfer. I also recommend either a Power Commander or one of those bench ECU flashers by Petrik, for example. Whether you race or just want your bike to run better on the street a data logger will show you where you need to add or subtract fuel. The dyno can show you where you're making the most power at, to test it. For example; with my first Busa my fuel mileage was way down using the reprogrammed ECU map so I was able to look at the data and see that it was too rich at idle and at the rpm I cruise at on the highyway- between 3000 and 4500 at 70 to 80 mph with stock gearing. I think the AFR was something like 9 or 11. I don't use a dyno to test the power, I use my butt (seat of the pants method) :) One of these days I might take it to a dyno but I'm happy with how it runs!

Finally finished the motor! Put the valve cover and new stator cover on this morning. Started polishing the swingarm. Finished going over it with the 240 grit wheel to take out the machining imperfections; about to hit it with 320 then later bring out the shine with the brown, black and then white compounds.

Haven't had much time to work on it lately but finished with the 320 and started with the brown tripoly.

Finished most of the polishing, just have to do the brake hanger and axle block then it'll be time to move on to the wheels.

Pretty good polishing for leaving it in 320 grit!!

next time use a palm sander and go up to at least 600 grit i go higher less buffing more shine..

kool tho!!

Thanks! That's a good idea, I'm all about less buffing :tu: I'll try that with the rest of the bike!

Finished polishing the swingarm and started installing the accent lights.


Since my wife told me I never finish what I start I had to prove her wrong by finishing this Boss 351/429 Mustang kit I bought about a decade ago... I combined the drag option with the stock option so it has a 429 with detailed interior instead of roll bars.

Been kinda crazy lately both at work and home!! My 10 year old neice from my wife's side of the family just moved in indefinitely... At work we've had a new case nearly every day for a couple of weeks because of suicide, a car crash, or hostile fire... On top of that stuff I've decided to pursue a bachelor's degree in IT with a concentration in business systems analisys...  In the mean time, I finished putting the LED lights on the swing arm. I just have to tidy up the wires with some plastic loom covers.


I used the plastic from the airbox flapper valve to make a wall to block the actual LED bulbs from sight. This way you will only see the light and not the light source.

HID low beam kit and tag bracket
« Reply #24 on: December 18, 2011, 05:21:11 PM »
Ordered some new parts today! Because of all those new cases I've got some over-time money :mrgreen:
I got the H.I.D. conversion kit with 10K color bulb from HID nation The plus about the kit is its optional lifetime warranty. If you're interested in this mod it's simple to do. For your reference, the bulb types are H7=Low beam and if you want to do the high beam it's 9005=High beam.


I got a peg mounted license plate bracket from Tricked Out Custom Cycles. It has a built-in LED license plate light.
