anyone have a pic of how to properly run a front strap..
I don't have pics of mine but just run it over the neck of your frame. If you have room do it in front of the gas tank. If not then unbolt the front of the gas tank and run it under like I did. The ends mount to the top brake caliper bolts on either side. I think I had to stack some washers out on my 600 to space it out away far enough from my forks.2002 Busa SE said:anyone have a pic of how to properly run a front strap..

Due to the length of the straps............That would leave SO MUCH left-over strap that it would become a rider safety concern. Nah for us!!!2002 Busa SE said:pics are cool, I though or was told to run it around the lower fork "tripple" down to the caliper..
2002 Busa SE said:cut the extra length out, the way you say doesnt it affect your steering. Id feel more safe just with it on the forks, cut any extra length off and if needed secure the ends so they dont fly around. It might not be a 1 man job but I could always do it while its on the trailer and the forks are compressed already. How does it feel strapped, you leave a few inches so it could compress if needed ( dip in track)
I need 2-3 tenths, I already have 5 gals of VP ultra 4 oxygenated fuel--87 octane, and Might take the stock air cleaner out since the baffles are out of the pipes for a little better flow. Any ideas to get me into the 9's
i know i got the parts to change the routing to over the frame ( damn radial calipers)Jammin_Johnny said:Ouch on the routing of the straps! I see a brake line PINCH issue on that gixer. Besides the twisting of the straps. In the beginning, ours looked like that. The way we have it now is better and neater for us.
Busa SE, sorry about the pic(s). I will have to retake them.
Our install allows the straps to run adjacent and parallel to the fork legs from the caliper mount up. All brake lines and wiring are out of the way from pinch or strap tightening issues.
I would install it over the frame between the races (cup) and the tank flange bolts if you have plenty of room.2002 Busa SE said:I have enough room on the busa to do about anything. Im heading to PINGEL after work to see what they have.
