Servicing the busa

Recommended Posts

Well today i thought the bike needed some work. Ive changed the brake and clutch fluid for dot 4 racing fluid, dropped and replaced the coolant. Then generally just a clean up. Getting the wheels powder coated candy red.


Getting a carbon fibre front mudguard then she will be nearly ready for next yr.

don't forget though you will have to fit new bearings, as you have to take them out cos the curing temp will kill them.

Got the coolant in ok and ran it through then finished the bleeding so all is well. Just need oil and filter then can start on wheels.

Ordered new indicators and just missed out on a carbon hugger.head bang
