Didn't Cycle World or Motorcyclist do something like that a few years ago?

I think a gearing change and some minor tuning should get a Busa over 200.

Take the bike you already own no matter what it is, even a Honda 250 Rebel, pack it up and ship by plane, you just exceeded 200 mph and then some.

I speak here about what I've been told and not what I have done. With that said....



I've read, and been told that a model year 1999 Busa. would hit the two ton mark right off the showroom.



If my information is correct, it was the next year that the "nanny chip" was insalled limiting top end to about 186. There may be after market replacements for this control chip, you'll have to look. Personally, after a through investigation, I'd just go with the older cheaper bike. Spend less money, perhaps use what you've saved to trick the thing out somewhat?



You should be able to find one pretty cheap?

None of the stock big dogs will get there. if removal of the restriction occures, bike is lowered and mirrors removed- at sea level these bikes will just fall short. 190 is more reasonable. You will need a boost for the last 10 mph - the cheapest will be the nos as a turbo will take you farther that 200, but will cost close to 5k to get there. Best of luck. Pay for the better tires and hold the f**k on! - dont forget-any bike doing these speeds needs to have a steering stabilizer installed!

You could contact this gentleman on a RC51 Honda and ask if it was worth it.

I did 193 mph on a cbr1100xx 2 Christmas days ago (03'), on the speedometer though, real world probably 175-180.

That's a good speed for the big Burgy. They are a lot quicker than they look!

Rule of thumb, you lose about 10% of your top speed on salt as compared to asphalt. You're not gonna run 200 mph at Bonneville on a stock motored 'Busa.
