With that in mind, how much work would need to be done to run with a busa?

WOW i didnt think they were that high.. i thought i read it somewhere awhile back it was like 125 and it compared it to the same year 750 which was only like 5 hp less.

Take a look at this link:
http://www.suzukicycles.org/GSX-R-series/GSX-R1100.shtml

GSX-R 1100 W 1993
155 hp (113 kW)/ 10,000 rpm, 115 Nm (11,7 kg-m)/ 9,000 rpm.

I have a '96 1100...these things are rocket ships!!!

Rgds.
Sorry, disagree...

Mine is a WT and as standard was producing 125 at the back wheel. It now wears a full Akrapovic, dynojet, k&n and ignition advancer and pushes out 146 at the back wheel.

That 155 is more than likely at the crank, however....!!

If a stock Busa has 175HP at engine. And a stock GSXR1100 has 155HP. How much work would need to be done to just wax ones ass!!! GSX1300R

im pretty sure that is at the engine. the 01/02 1000 only push 145-150 at the wheel. and they have come alone way since 93-98 1100's. if i remember right fastcats 1100 pushed 165 at the wheel with nitrous.
. i think the busa and 1100 are about the same weight (heavy). so in short better off trying not to beat one.

I think you guys are talking apples and oranges....the original guy asking is from the USA and thoser 1100s sucked pretty bad in the horsepower wars. Only the euro/CDN ones had the high horsepower numbers, especially due to the USA market 36mm carbs etc...

the actual dyno numbers in the Brit mags back in 93-95 hovered around 138-142 honest bhp, back wheel, Dynojet dynos with NON factory demo bikes, ie real world. This agrees with the results I've had with my bike.

As far as blowing away a busa goes, buy a busa, unless you are willing to put a LOT of money into your motor and never get it out. If you do want a hot rod based on an 1100 and don't mind the $$, then go for it, but have a really long look at the costs versus the benefits.

PS: USA 1100s were around 122-126bhp rear wheel and shitloads slower on the top end, due to running out of carb at high rpm/high gears. PLUS, the bikes are/were way overgeared, for EPA type requirements. At least the gearing is fairly cheap to fix
