2008 Suzuki GSX 1300 R Hayabusa engine knock under load

I have a 08 busa that I drag race with about 3500 miles that just got rebuilt about 1000 mile ago (due to a bad oil pump ) I hear a knock in the motor under a load that sounds like a spun bearing (rod knock ) but I have no bearing material in the oil. The noise is around 4 to 6 thousand rpm it sounds almost like it coming from the top half and I have put a new timing chain tensioner in it. Any ideas what it might be

If you have installed the Dynojet kit's carburetor needles take them off and use the stock ones.
Dynojet's needles are for track use only and the don't work properly under 4000rpm.

SOURCE: my suzuki dl 1000 k5 hiccups at 2200--4300 rpm

have seen this many times on different bikes. the manufacturers have to get their bikes to pass emission (pollution) tests, and noise tests. these tests are usually done at the same rpm, therefore the manufacturers program the ecu to make the bike run weak on fuel at that rpm. causes what we call a 'flat spot'

can think of no other reason or it would do it throughout the rev range. don't forget that after a distance on neutral throttle, the fuelling will be very weak as the bike doesn't need much then anyway. usual answer is to get ecu re programmed, or fit dynojet power commander, a plug in electrical box, will sort out all the rubbish and make it run properly. do a google search for dynojet and read their stuff.

SOURCE: Engine Knock/Rod Bearing

1.No, the connecting rod is not bent from the factory.

2.Bearing is shot for that rod? No matter, as you will be replacing that rod, and the rod bearings for both rods. Doesn't make sense to replace one while you're deep in there, and it's probably in a worn out shape anyway. Besides, if that rod bearing even STARTED to spin, you'd have to have the lower end of the rod bore resized, anyway.

Observe the wear pattern of the rod bearings. Are they worn off to one side somewhat. The wear pattern should be even down the middle of the bearing. If it's off to one side somewhat, you have a twisted crank.
Sounds like somebody hit high RPM's and missed a shift! (Or wound it so tight they went way above the red zone in the tach)

3.Machine the crank? Why? Crank pin surface is damaged? You can only turn it down so much. Probably .020, (20 thousandths), to clean it up, or the crank is shot. (.030 is about a 32nd of an inch. Actually it's .0325)
If the crank pin, (Rod pin) surface is damaged, have a skilled machinist take a look, and see if it will clean up at the minimum required diameter. It's in the book.

4.Search the bike junkyards, (EXCUSE ME! Salvage yards!), for parts, and check Ebay.

5.I know you know this, but everything must be PERFECT when you reassemble the lower end. Not close -> PERFECT!! Otherwise this puppy will scatter across the road, when you hit 65 miles an hour, and 5000 grand on the tach! (When you're on the on ramp approaching the highway)

I have a 1999 busa all is running well. i am looking for more power can i put bigger injectors in


Hi, Lyn I am truly sorry that 175 ponies doesn't tie your sneakers, however, there are ways to guarantee your next speeding ticket the usual basics are performance cam, larger injectors, free flow air cleaner, performance exhaust, and a fuel tuner if necessary or you could trade it in for a 2008 or later Busa for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry.

I have a 2009 model Suzuki Hayabusa.The turn signal fuse which is 10amp keeps blowing.This leaves me with no turn signals,rear tail light,brake light, and no dash functions.Any ideas anyone???


I've got the same problem on my 08 Busa. Both times happened after turning left. The second definitely happened when I turned on the left turn signal. The 4 way flashers worked after I replaced the fuse the first time. Perhaps the left turn signal worked a few times between replacing the fuse the first time the second time it blew. I looked at the left handlebar switch and can't see a problem in it. Next, I'm going to trace some wires.
