Is this a new failure or a continuation of the last one? Laughing

Sad to hear about your impala since it was probably the sexiest sounding one I've ever heard!! Do you plan to rebuild?

if I ever get off this bike yea lol, owned it just over 3 weeks, got her with 0 miles now pushin 2450. busa is just flat out comfortable to ride and omg I can not wipe that s**t eatin grin off my face every time I crack the throttle open, and to top it off I'm averaging 35mpg in town. Rode upto ft worth this past weekend to pester some old friends of mine and to bbq some, avg 43mpg with me doin a "few" WOT run in 4th&5th gear Razz not goin to say speeds that thing can get to I'm sure most already know.

I'm gonna get some new exhaust, frame sliders, get a 6 or 8" swingarm extension, and new gear sets then I'll be fairly set on the busa for a bit.

The imp will get fixxed but I'm not to worried about it atm since looks like Texas is in for another Burn Ban no BBQ at the lakes summer *cries*

really just debating what I want to do with her though, just buy another stock bottom lower end or build this one up to get beat on. Either way not cheap and on the back burner for now till get a lot of other stuff taken care of. Wanting to get lasik eye surgery done as well done with contacts.
