Question about 2008 Suzuki GSX 1300 R Hayabusa

2 Answers

Hayabusa mpg I'm picking my bike up on the 25th and had some general questions... I know most don't buy a 'Busa for MPG, but what do your's get? I saw where Sport Rider got something like 37-38 MPG. What kind of oil is best after the 600 mile break in? And, what are the free mods? Thanks,

IF you run a few top end runs say 4 or so you'll get about 27 mpg. If you ride 90 to 100 with an occasional blast up to 140 or so, I'm getting around 39. If you ride like the law wants you too............then I get 42. Here is a pic of a top end run with a speed recall from my speedohealer. I buried the speedo real quick. The GPS read 183.4. I had another 2 hundred rpm's to redline to go. I had to slow down for certain reasons. Of course I was on a track and never would do this on a public road...........! :shock

I have a 2000 busa and have never had less than 38 to the gallon and that was after a fast day out. Had some long trips to Italy and Germany with pillion and luggage and returned 45 to 50 without any problem. Can't comment on the oil sorry. Enjoy your toy.

How will i know my fuel has gone done if my bike does not have a meter to show?

Many don't have fuel gauges. You have to open the filler and look inside the tank.
If you have a tripometer you can get a general idea of your MPG and reset it when you fill up. Or make a note of where the miles are at on the odomenter.

Got a 2000 hayabusa, instrument panel back brake light and turn signals out, replaced 15amp fuse, rode the bike next morning same again? general....the turn signals brake lights and horn and instrument lights are typically on the Signal fuse on most bikes.
So....any recently added accessories to the circuit?
If not...start at the signal and brake light sockets...inspect wiring around the socket and the sockets themselves looking for a possible short.
Then check wiring to the back under seat for chafing pinching etc
Inspect the wiring aroiund the steering head in case a pinch has occured causing a short on bar rotation.
If all looks okay...inspect the horns....not sure on your Busa, but many horns use 2 wires and ground through the horn the horn needs to be insulated on its mount so as it may be wired hot and can short.

'06 Hayabusa broke down -- FI light came on & bike just died -- can anyone help, what could be the problem?

FI stands for Fuel Injection. The fuel system sensors have detected a problem. It could be anything > a dirty air filter restricting airflow, a plugged injector, an error in fuel mapping, any number of things. Serious problems can trigger the computer to prevent the engine from starting until the problem is fixed. You will need to take the bike to a dealer to have them plug in a code reader. The code reader will tell you exactly what the problem is. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

My 2000 Kawasaki concours gets 33 mpg from mostly freeway driving. I've heard Concours owners say they get over 40 mpg. What kind of mileage should I expect. I would like to hear from other Concours owners...

The Connie is a big heavy bike and your mileage is average. Are you using premium fuel? are your tires properly inflated? Are you doing 75 or 65 on the freeway ? All these factor into good mileage....and remember some of the other guys don't know how to equate proper mileage numbers and others love to fudge their numbers just to make you feel bad.......most inline 4 cylinder bikes return mileage in the 30s...Good luck to you and enjoy your bike, it is a fine machine.....tim

Fuel consumption

Real Life experiance, if you ride your bike at high speeds, even with Over Drive engaged, I end up doing about 180~200 miles per 5~5.25 gallons which breaks out to about 36~38 mpg.

Course, slowing it down to 60~65, in OT will get you another 25~35 miles per tank extra. If you need better MPG, suggest the 650 for the job, The litter is solid for rider/passenger, as the 650 is more for the rider only with added mileage clearly in the 40+mpg rating..
