shit, i'm thinking of repairing my bike, keeping the miles low, and trading it in 2 years from now for an '06 750 cuz i'm sure it'll get the facial upgrade of the '05 1K

If it is the same pic that I have seen, that bike is the ugliest thing ever created bu 'zuki. That 14" round pipe is hidious.

an '05 would be nice but since i only dragrace and street ride an '04 and older would be perfect. that's what all the aftermarket drag parts would be for anyway. other than styling is there major differences between the '01-'02 and the '03-'04?

headlight..

01-02 have a different headlight set up from the 03-04 busa stack look. if your just gonna drag race and not street ride hotbodiesracing.com has a light 2 piece upper and lower fairing with no headlight and more aerodynamic nose horsepower is the same in 01-04 , but if suzuki is gonna keep up with japans other big4 companies there gonna have to increase the ponies. i heard on speed visions coverage of the road atlanta race that team yoshimura recieved some upgrades from japan before the race to increase the power of mladin and yates's bikes. thats jus what i heard?

yeah, i heard the same thing, but i can't imagine what those bikes could get that they don't allready have, and if thats true and to the fact it must notta been too good, not hating on the zuk but those hondas that they where riding would consistantly close the gap in the staights, it's that outta the curve zuk launch and a pinch of mat that keep that bad mutha on the winning streek. :bowdown:
