Step one was to make our white bird a bit more comfortable. Comparing the Busa to the ZX-14R, its roots as a long, low machine emerge clearly. Based on our measurements, the reach from the seat to the bar is 1.4 inches longer and the effective bar rise is 0.4 in. less than the Kawasaki's. The result is predictable: more weight on the hands, less on the Suzuki's surprisingly comfortable seat. GenMar (www.zianet.com/genmar) has a deceptively simple solution—a machined aluminum block that fits between the Busa's stock upper triple clamp and handlebar clamp. GenMar makes two versions, one ¾-in. thick ($139.95), the other 1 ¼-in. thick ($149.95). With the taller of the two fitted, the Busa's ergos are more friendly: a reduction of 0.6 in. from seat to bar and an increase of 1.2 in. of bar rise, to 4.8 in. total. Heck, that's Bandit territory!
