Well technically a hayabusa is a GSXR unless they dropped that nomenclature recently (GSX-R 1300). But thanks, I didn't know that the motors were bored/stroked to 1500 I thought they were the stock 1300 ish cc's. Those motors make about 200hp stock @ 13k rpm, figured it would be fine for a little lightweight radical. Even still I'd be shocked if it was $10k for a rebuild of a bike based motor. You could always stick a stock busa motor in there with a low boost turbo for 300hp.
