What's up Jeff?  8)

How've you been?





No progress for me.  Front wheel/rotors at the chromers for another week, rear sets at the powdercoaters....  pretty much dead in the water waiting on parts. I don't want to put the body back on until it's back on wheels and not teetering on jack stands.. :hide:

Pretty much always the same old shit different day bro,though I did pick up a Honda CRF 450R dirt bike a few months ago I've been tryin' not to kill myself on. :lol:Damned thing is almost terrifying,like a big ass bicycle with a 55hp motor and always on the verge of out of control(those pros on TV make that shit look way easier than it really is,first time I tried a jump I tweaked a shoulder and racked my damned nuts :hys:).Did put a 6" over Evil arm and one of Matt's co2 shifters on my Gen II a while back,haven't ridden it much though since I got that dirt bike,maybe a 100 miles in 3 months. :lol:Good to see you back around bro. :thumb:

Maybe so....

Maybe we can jump start this ole clunker again and get some OGs posting...

I haven't posted much or even messed with the busa much in the last 3-4 years but....I'm getting back into it now...(Obviously by my resto project).

Yeah, dirtbikes are dangerous AF.... The worst I ever got hurt on a motorcycle was on dirtbikes... Looped a KX65 and looped a YZ426F.... Needless to say, wheelies aren't my thing... :lol:   Tore my meniscus on the YZ426 crash....  :fiddy:

I'm too old for that shit now... I figure that if I crash the busa, I'm probably hauling ass and will likely be dead so...less chance of pain...I'm too old for pain now.

 :hys:

I hear you bro,that dirt bike is way more dangerous than my Busa(up to about 80 mph anyway).Put a tach on it today and it'll hit 10,000 rpms in a hurry(96mmx62.1mm bore and stroke,4 valve ported head and 12 to 1 compression,Leo Vince pipe,etc.),little bastard is a beast at only 217 lbs. dry weight...first time I ever had a motorsickle that weighs less than my fat ass. :lol:

Man,I haven't seen Grecco and those other guys on here for years(Grecco for sure,thinking he got a Ducati way back and dropped off),this is my 10th year here and I check it out several times daily.

I went just back and searched my posts from the beginning...and oh man.. what an articulate and eloquent poster I was....LOL :D

I find myself just as entertaining now as I was back then in 02'....LOL  I saw a bunch of pics I had posted from LONG ago that I forgot about and they still existed....Saw lots of stuff I forgot that I had done back then, pretty cool walk down memory lane.

I used to have a lot of fun in this place back in the 02-05' era....  This place was always hopping back then, especially when the turbo scene started blowing up.  I really enjoyed those times, I basically grew up on my busa.....owned it for 17.5 years now, and I'll never sell it, its too much of a part of me.  This place was too.... a long time ago.

Do you remember my infamous "Playa reports"?   From my single days trying to kill it in the clubs...man I can't believe I posted all of that shit on here in off topic... :hys:   I was a nut.

Before my time bro. :lol:Bought my 1st Busa in '02 and didn't find this site 'til '07 when 2nd gear went out of my '03 and took it to Chris Phipps(blk02ws6)to fix,brought it home with an RCC Stage 1,McINTOSH Alumipro arm,Cycle-Tek CO2 shifter,6" over tail section,New Image seat(think it was Tobin back then),etc.,etc.,etc. :lol:Still talk to Chris every month,he bought a house in Phoenix and drives a big rig(still has 2 Busas,'08 orange and black for the street and a 1507 for the track).

Yep I remember Chris... Matter in fact, my head light assembly and front battery box was on one of Chris' turbo bikes... He "modded" a stock headlight assembly, (basically sectioned it out, took 2" out and glued it all back together) to make room for a battery to fit behind the gauge cluster, he built a nice little chromoly battery box.... I bought that shit and a GPM top mount steering damper from him... This was in 08' I think...I still have that stuff on my bike today.

Yeah I started out on the first .org in 2000, then Dennis started this one in 02 I think.  Then there was a server crash in there some where..... Then Flipper took it all over in 05 ish..   But yeah I was there from the get go... Hell I was on LABs since 99'... I still get on that shit every day and there hasnt been a bike topic there in a decade. :lol:


The off topic section here back in the 03-05' days was crazy.... pretty much anything went.. We would all post pics of women we were banging or trying to bang etc, it was a free for all here then....  Then they did away with Off topic for a long time... Maybe its back now, not sure.  It was fun then tho.

Was definitely a lot more activity back then bro,don't know where everybody went.The dirt thing is pretty active out here(SoCal seems to be right in the middle of it)and I spend a lot of time on a site called ThumperTalk,usually a new topic or reply about every 30 seconds or so.

Yep.... I remember your busa..from around the 06-07' days I think.... 8)

I did my first turbo in June of 04.  Motorhead/Richard had just come out with the Ghetto kits in 03.... TECH had one of the first ones locally here.  After seing his bike run, I bought one within a few months and changed from my cam/nitrous setup.  Busa4Hire (Jody) had one of the first kits Dennis had installed... He ran race gas full time and was making 320hp on like 16 psi way back in 03... That bike trapped 169 mph in the 1/4 and I just thought that shit was nutz...I had to have it.  From that point on, I lived in the Turbotalk section for the next 5-6 years.

I had the ghetto kit/stock motor deal for about 4 years then I popped it.  Then did the built motor/RCC stg 2 intercooled kit in late 08' and been together ever since. I kind of lost interest in bikes in about 2011 or so....then in 13', caught a wild hair and bought a BMW S1000RR...modded it, then lost interest again.  I've been knee deep into 900+hp corvettes for years so the bikes took a back burner.... but now, I sold the big power vette, bought a C7Z and its still stock, and back to playing with the bikes... They are cheaper and more fun, it just took me 5 years to realize it. :smashfreak:

I remember your "playa reports" very well  :lol:
Its good to see you back posting, its been too long.
I look in on labs now and then, but all seems very childish to me, nothing of interest.
A few have been back and then gone again.

Last time I saw scary jerry was with Thomas at Santa Pod when I had my supercharged Busa.
That was a few years ago.
I've never been off bikes, I just ride a retro Kawasaki which has been in bits for 4 years, soon to be fired up.
Its one of the very last air cooled big 4 cyl Kawasaki's and creeping up in value. But I'm not selling it.
My mates have been giving me hell to get it on the road for months !!!!
I have no more sh*ts to give.

Yeah I see you post occassionally on LABs... I still check LABs every day and occassionally post but... Its pretty much the same old shit every time I get on...same people bitching about the same shit so.....

I remember your supercharged bike, you did that before just about anyone else did.... Now Procharger actually has a production kit out for the Hayabusa.  There is even some ProStreet racers here using prochargers and hauling ass with them....(low to mid 7s)

Its easy to lose motivation in projects and bikes in general, but I would always have to have one ready to ride for when the bug bites me..  I'm planning on getting my old busa back together in a couple weeks and I'll be riding the shit out of it.

Good to see you are still around here though... :beer_yum:

Thanks John, I'm glad to hear Jerry is still around and back in the states... I think he was in Germany when him and I corresponded a lot.


Congrats on getting your Prostreet bike flying...  Its crazy how fast those bikes have became in the last 4-5 years.... 6s@220+ is straight up insane for a "street bike".

Good to see you are still around here too.... (especially for tech help if I have a problem I can't figure out... :D)

Will be racing this weekend in Benson NC at Galot Motorsports Park or whatever it is called (only 1/8th mile though, and I still need to build a motor, swap ot out for the one that is in the bike and hopefully test on thursday).  Then up to Virginia Motorsports Park the next week for "Kings of Grudge", then to MD for an IDBL race the week after that.

6.86@212 for the supercharged Procharger bike in Prostreet by the way. Eric Paquette owns /builds/tunes and Tony Ficher rides it.

Creeping along at a snails pace...

Got the front/rear sets back from powdercoating and reinstalled, also got the tank/tail section on.   Also got the front wheel back from the chrome shop, polished the rotors etc....The upper cowl went back to the paint shop due to a slight variation in the silver section so its getting redone....Gonna be a couple more weeks.. 

Fresh bling...


All nakey....


This dude can paint....




Painted the SUZUKI in there...(no stickers like factory)











I can't wait to finish it....
