A Hayabusa snow bike flying through the snow. We bet you haven’t seen that before

The Idaho-based Grind Hard Plumbing Company converted the original Suzuki Hayabusa into a 170+ horsepower snowbike.

In its nearly 24-year lifespan, we’ve seen the Suzuki Hayabusa do it all without breaking a sweat, from commuting to the track, off-roading, and even touring the world. In fact, this versatility and reliability, along with the title of “World’s Fastest Bike”, are the main reasons why the Busa is one of his most popular sport bikes. And just when you thought you’d seen it all, Idaho-based Grind Hard Plumbing Co took the flagpole even further by converting what used to be the world’s fastest motorcycle into the world’s (probably) fastest snowbike. pushed forward.

Suzuki Hayabusa Transformed Into A Snow Bike

The starting point for construction was the first generation Suzuki Hayabusa. The first generation Hayabusa was sold from 1999 to 2007. He was powered by a 1,299 cc in-line 4-cylinder engine that produced 173 hp. As a result, the top speed he reached over 300 km/h (187 mph), making him the fastest motorcycle in the world at the time. However, these are standard specs and the bike the YouTuber is using is equipped with a 4-in-1 Yoshimura exhaust for better performance.

Let’s get to construction. Hayabusa’s natural shape is not suitable for running on snow. Of course you can put snow tires on it, but even that doesn’t work in the dead of winter in Idaho. solution? Well, replace the wheels with a special snow chain system. For those who don’t already know, the snow chain system is attached to the chassis (instead of the stock swingarm) and transfers power to the paddles instead of the tires. These paddles sink into the snow, plow it, and provide traction to keep the bike moving forward.

According to the manufacturer, Hayabusa snowbikes perform very well in the snow.

However, snow chains are usually made for slim motocross bikes, not serious sport bikes like the Peregrine Falcon, which caused some problems for the Grind Hard Plumbing Company. So the snow sprocket had to be repositioned to match the Hayabusa sprocket, and the Yoshimura exhaust was moved to the side to make room for the track. Also, the Hayabusa’s rear shock absorber was clamped because the snow track has its own springs. Meanwhile, the other end is relatively stock, combining the front snow blower with stock upside-down forks and stock handlebars.

This is a Very Cool Snow Bike

The front end is mostly stock, except for the snowplow, which changes wheels.

The Suzuki Hayabusa snow bike has been highly rated. It’s pretty crazy, but you can see it pushing through tons of snow without any effort. Heck, the YouTuber is also slacking off, but Busa seems to be unscathed. Doing so makes the inline 4 mil sound very cute unlike the normal chainsaw sounding snowmobile. This, if you ask us, makes us even happier. But without testing it, it’s still not the fastest snowbike in the world. So if anyone at Grind Hard Plumbing Co is reading this, invite them now.
