last time i checked the stock tyre sizes for a bking and busa was 190/50-17 :P


Where did you check ?

B-King has always been 200/50-17
Busa is a 190/50-17.

Same size wheels on both bikes.




Yup got my mind muddled up, busa is a 190 bking is the 200, suprised that they use a 200 though.

Yeah, cant see why myself.

Maybe trying to keep the "bigger is better" image ?

Maybe the taller 200/50 help's compensate for the B-Kings extra length by raising the rear ?

Not only does the 190/55 give the bike
a much nicer feel when turning it in,
but you also get a much better choice
of sticky tyres than in the 200 size.

should try a 190/50-17 on next time. I guess there reason for the 200 is to give it more a muscle bike look? or maybe the stock cans make a 190 look tiny hehe

I thought about a 190/50 but wasnt sure
if i'd notice it being smaller or not.
In theory the 190/50 would lower the back
and slow the steering, opposite to a 190/55
(being taller than a 200/50)

What I have found is that its not all in the numbers.
The individual brands seem to differ between the same
listed size and the tyres shape/profile makes a huge difference too.

B-King is pretty long and lazy with its steering, It needs a little help,
I have thought of raising the rear a little on the links,
this would firm up the ratio too but thats no bad thing.

I need another project like an Arab needs a sand pit,
like an Eskimo needs a snowball,
like a......etc etc etc....

So not quite sure why,
but I just bought this ! Laughing

1986 GSXR1100 "Slabsider".
1st of the Oilcooled GSXR1100's.

No engine (it went into a 7/11)
but a big box of everything else.



Not seen it yet, but it was VERY cheap and
the guy is going to deliver it and the spares.

Was going to break it up, but tempted to see
what motors turn up in the near future.

Is that an alloy frame tony, will be nice and light if it is.


Yeah, Alloy frame and swing arm.

Lad delivered it today, with a box of spares.

Not sure what to do with it yet,
but an oil-cooled Bandit 12 motor will
drop straight in if I can find one.

BUGGER!!

Bought the exhaust can's.

Staintune can's are the only legal one's i've found,
they normaly go for $1200/$1300 but there were a
couple of set's on Ebay for $500. Couldnt resist !
Just waiting for them to turn up now.

Not the best looking but the B-King has to stay legal,
I need one bike that is Laughing

http://www.staintune.com.au/exhausts/suzuki/Suzuki_B-King.htm

Haven't looked at the GSX1400 yet.
Its low mileage, full system, Power commander etc,
but has had a drop on the left hand side.
Not pretty but still go's OK im told.
Not sure if my funds will stretch to it though.

There nice tony thumbs


Never seen a set up close.
Only found 2 pic's on their site.

Hope to get them on next week,
Got an "April Fools Run" coming up end of the month.
At least 400 miles of Twistys to get to the pub on the Friday,
a huuuuuuuuge loop around NSW via Russel Crow's pub and back to the pub on Saturday.
Another 400 miles home on Sunday (April-1st)

Our April Fools Run's are always REAL good.
One year we went to Dubbo, NSW.
Was over 950k's each way (590 miles?)
Ended up doing well over 1200 miles that weekend
on a naked bike with a pillion...... Laughing

Thanks.

Never fitted underseat can's before
but I dont think its rocket Science ?

Not sure what to expect, the staintune website
only show's 2 pic's from the same low/close angle.
Cant be MUCH worse than standard !!

They came with a form to send back to get an "im legal/db" plate to put
on the bike which was why I didnt go with Yoshi's this time.

pretty straight forward, normally you need to remove the back fairing/panel ( both seats, few bolts and slide off ) and then your good to roll Smile

Thanks. Thats handy.

Mines a little different,
It does away with the heavy tube subframe
and mounts the rear guard up under the can's,
and has a stainless insert not the stock bit
between the cans's.

Fitted it pretty easy this evening... thumbs

Only thing im not 100% on is you can now
see the loom to the rear lights handing down a tiny bit.
Cant pull it up as its against the can's.
Might cut and extend it and run it up under the bodywork.

Still not 100% sure I like the looks,
(better than stock but not as nice as some)
but its WAAAY lighter and sounds a little more sporty.
(and it was cheap!)

Not sure I like them. Might put the originals back on.
Louder than i'd like, ugly gaps, get f#ckin' hot!,
less support for bodywork, Not convinced.

I might leave them on for a while.

The worse bit for me is the way the
rear guard bolts up, but I'd get that
with any aftermarket can because I need
to keep it to stay legal.

They were cheap enough that I wont stress.

cans look fine, its the fender that doesn't! Shocked


Yeah, I agree.
Still want to stay legal so might look
at something off an FZ1 or modern sports
bike that a bit slimmer.

Cant you use tail tidy's over in queensland/aussy?

Short rear gurds / tail tidys shouldnt be legal in any country.
Thats why everything has them from new.
They're needed to get past design/registration laws.

Just like small plates/loud pipes in the UK
the cops have decided to ticket for them here when it suits them.

Some risk it and get away, others lose-$'s and points.

Cops recently ticketed a few bikes for having full systems on late model bikes.
Didn't mater how loud they were, the tickets
were for no longer having a "cat" in the system.
They knew which should / shouldnt.

I think I've bought another bike!

Had a look at one day.
Looks like an easy-fix project and the price was right.

Just need to get some $$$'s together and work out
how to shift it, Its from up the North coast.

Coming from another Streetfighter forum member
but not someone I have met or know off of the "net".

Postman just turned up.

2 Yoshi Tri-Oval can's for a Hayabusa,
with baffles, with link pipes.
Couple of dents, not mint but will clean up.
Might cut them down to make "shorty's)
Bought off another ASF member.




Another ASF guy has a Busa with a GSXR-K6 tail,
bodywork, seat, cowl, lights, subframe and adapter plates.
He's taking it off next week to put a KTM tail on,
fingers crossed the K6 parts are heading my way...

You got the front view of this bike? Can't find the pics atm but i know it also has a GSXR headlight unit/cut down fairing and black GSXR screen. I still prefer the colour he had it before, even if it was pinky/purple Laughing

Pete only painted it red for the ASF run on the weekend.
He's going to change the tail in a week or two so
it'll get reprinted again then..... and probably again
a week later knowing him !

Not keen on pretty bikes that lack some "go" myself... Laughing



There's 6 or 7 of us just on ASF alone that have Naked Hayabusa's.
I haven't found a better naked bike (that I could ever afford)
that I could buy new/off the showroom floor... thumbs
