Busa springrates

I have an 85 7/11 track bike with a first gen Busa front end. Has anyone else here gone this route, and if so, what spring rates oil weight etc are you using?

Re: Busa springrates

The Hayabusa gen I has a very soft srung fork and not much damping either. I have tried the Gen I, Gen II, GSXR 1000 K3-4, K5-6, K7-8, K9-l1 and Kawasaki ZX6R 2009 fork on my racebikes and I rank them in that order ( worst--> Best ). The Kawasaki ZX6 were the best ( stock ). If yoy upgrade the internals then all with radial brakes are "best". ust different lenght and thickness were the triple tree are.
