Gsxr 1000 tail end on a busa

one of my buddies was looking at doing this conversion to his bike. i was wondering if the gsxr 1000 tail end would just fit on the tail end of a busa. or what all would have to do to get it to fit.

any help would be great. thanks

What year is the busa? I know someone who has an 08 gsxr 1000 tail on his 08 busa.

Re: Gsxr 1000 tail end on a busa

The 1000 tail definitely would look alot better than the bloated excuse for a tail the Busa has. Other than the color choices in the pics above, the 1000 tail is 1000% improvement.

That is one sick bike. I hate the tails on the busa. But the 1000 tail hooked it up!

Re: Gsxr 1000 tail end on a busa

I think the wheels are awesome, but I would imagine they flex at higher speeds??? Anyone have any insight on these things. A guy I know from LBF Cycles built a GSXR-1000 for the metic bike build off and used the same thing. He is the same guy that built that three wheeled busa where the wheels were all in line.

That's the nicest Busa I've seen.

The 1000 tail is a MUST.

i saw a show tv about that bike. the company who built that bike (unsure of who it was) if i recall right, said that the wheels should be as strong if not stronger than the stock wheels. some kinda superstrong reinforced plastic i think? either way it looks killer
