do you plan on doing sand drags?? I would think the hp to weight ratio would be crazy with the 1300 engine, i have heard that even the R1 bikes are almost uncontrolable in drag races

The horsepower ratings between an R1 and a busa arent all that different. They are both wicked fast street bikes, and would make insane powerplants for a quad. Ide opt for the R1, keep it yamaha...even tho Im a kawi fan when it comes to sportbikes. If you really want a head turner drop a ZX-10 engine in her and paint your plastics lime green.

I was thinking about doing the same conversion to my rappy. Have you started on it yet and if so what kind of problems have you ran into?

Lets keep this post alive. I am wanting to do the same thing. Considering going to junkyards tomorrow to look for a hayabusa. What I need to know is whether a certain year of hayabusa would work best for my 2007 raptor frame? Always best to start with a near fit rather than trying to fit a square peg in a round hole!

I have always been a suzuki fan when it comes to street bikes. but if it was my choice, i would like to see a raptor with the new 09+ R1 motor. it has a new crank design and fireing order. it makes gobs of low end power and awesome top end power. its just a monster everywhere!.... i think it would be an awesome motor for a quad.

a busa quad would be freaking crazy fast too. i just assume the size of the motor is a little bigger then an r1 motor, so would cause for more fabrication. I have a built 05 gsxr750 motor that im debating putting in a quad or building a single seater buggy for. good luck with all your builds!
