Gen1 Busa "Lite"
« on: June 02, 2016, 06:17:42 AM »
I bought it new 16 years ago and have been working on it off and on since. The bike weighs 419# with 4 gal. of gas. It is a street bike but has no headlight. (I don't ride after dark)  No rear brake as my right foot was injured in an accident. The AP Racing fronts are so good it isn't necessary. The S/A is a deboxed stocker and is about 9# lighter. Tested at 235 MPH by Steve at Loring. All bodywork, tank, wheels and airbox are full carbon.  Exhaust, hanger, hardware and axles (3) are titanium. Suspension is Ohlins front, Penske rear. Chain is a 520 (have run one for 12 years) And yes officer the H/L is on low beam  :)  I hope you like it.  LSL



All motor all the time and a turbo now and then.

Nice.

Is the headlight just a sticker?

Piece of fiberglass molded to fit the opening then airbrushed.  Congrats again on your 244 Ransom.  LSL

Thanks!

Wonder if there is any "light weight" headlights out there with at least a low beam.  The stock one is mighty heavy.

We remove quite a bit of weight on our prostreet bikes, still with a functioning low beam, bit no high beam. Could make it even lighter by removing all of the metal and heavy solid glass lens of the high beam if you didn't need it to look stock from the outside looking in.
Any day on a motorcycle like this that ends just needing parts and labor is a good day.
