MOTOR

First time out on the dope!!! .36 pill fogging the box. Started spraying the middle of 2nd gear. Anything lower would just wheelie

Quickest ET


Best MPH


After that I rode a buddies Rearick Racing 68" gen1 cam packaged gen 1 on spray. [email protected]

So I did a Rearick Racing 1397cc with a stock unported head and his cam package. Along with a longer arm,cut forks,sidewinder,fuel system and 2' flat pan.


I have been down the 1320 5 times in the same night with a 17mph headwind.

Best pass on motor is a [email protected] bike did go [email protected] which suggests a 8.84 1/4. At another 1/8 mile track it went [email protected] on motor which suggests a 8.76

Yes I have nitrous and yes I intend to use it. Just playing with some motor stuff right now.

Nice bike sir.
thank you
Welcome Teezy. Didn't know you posted up here on TSC. You forgot to mention that lockup you appear to be using.
Yeah was building the LSX TT coupe till I bought the bike. Street racing scene fell off the map here so it was back to the 1320. And the bike was the way to go for me......alot nicer running fast times without all the headaches of broken parts.

I mentioned it up there. RSM clutch... I have the hand slider RSM clutch

thank you sir

NICE! Sounds like you definitely got the bug.
Yes sir!! Looking forward to getting on the dope. Then porting the head,some rods and maybe cut rail,grudge setup!! Would like to get in the 7's later

Nice Busa bro!
Thank you!! I promise the front fender will go back on

Doh! I didnt see that as I was looking with my phone. I sold that HMF exhaust and decided to stay on course with the turbo project.
Good deal!!


Im glad I went the route the went. My tuner has 2 PST turbo busas. I have been around then now and seen that the turbo setup is something that you consistently mess with...... where the motor/nitrous its pretty much throw gas in a go racing. Granted these bikes make north of 550whp but I knew after running the 8 on my buddies bike that my goals would be 7's.

Texas weather is very up and down as far can keeping the tune dialed in but the local tracks cant handle the power the bigger turbo bikes make which makes it pretty pointless to build one anyway. Houston is around 4 hours from here. On a nitrous busa I can run 7's at the local track. The cool thing is to run them consistent.

Its pretty crazy that my tuner/builder and good friend has 2 low 7 second turbo busas but takes his motor/nitrous too the track all the time. In his words " its just nice to not have to fuck with things. Just jump on it and make passes"


It was kinda like the clutch deal. I heard alot of crap when I bought it because everyone wants to hand clutch the bike. Well Im not 140lb guy. Running a hand clutch is a blasted but the heavy guys really put a hurting on fibers/metals. With the RSM clutch I have made well over 100 passes and they look brand new. And the bike is on the money every pass. I wont lie its pretty awesome to leave around 1800rpm and go WOT. 1.35-1.37 60ft every pass. Especially if you want to bracket race or grudge


Gotcha build that bad boy for you!!



welcome nice bike!
thank you sir

that is crazy lol, very nice bike
thank you

Nice bike man
I will extend my bike at some point but I want 8s at stock wheelbase first.

That would have been cool. If the local tracks were better as far as prep goes that might have been possible. But they are not. I have a NLR nitrous controller new in the box ready to go on.

Whats your best ET/MPH so far?

[email protected] is my best on a 50hp shot in roswell
Nasty!!!!

My new 1/4 mile PB.

I had to let the air in the rear tire down to 8psi. The DA was 1518 and 94%humidity. Going to Vegas for a week. When I get back Im pulling the bottle back on.



I went to add some clutch and apparently during that time they drag the track and reVHT it. The bike stood straight and when i came down it broke the tailight off the bike. You can't run without a tailight light so I was done.
