Feeling the need for speed , the SBP Hayabusa was moved to the
service stand for some drag racing mods.
First up some lowering links and a strap for tying down the front end.
Next we added a set of Yoshimura RS3 slip on 's , a Power Commander , then a Quick Shifter for sure shifts , this allows clutch less shifts and with a reverse gear change (1st is up) it makes the bike more stable and less likely to wheel stand when launching and shifting over the quarter.
We also changed the gearing and pulled the axle to the rear of the adjuster. To take care of the traction a 180/55*17 Shinko rear tyre was fitted.
Back on the dyno for a custom map using Tuning Link. This netted a respectable 175 + rwhp and 104 ft lbs , so now its off to Heathcote for some quarter mile action.
