Suzuki Hayabusa Gen 1
Diagnose Mysterious Ignition Miss (Part 1)
Ride along with Brock as he diagnoses a mysterious ignition miss in his good friend Scott’s beautiful Gen 1 Hayabusa. During the ride, Brock not only simulates and defines the problem but gives a bit of a Hayabusa history lesson, from his unique point of view as an American Suzuki-sponsored drag racer at the time of the bike’s release, which you won’t hear anywhere else.
After the ride, Brock breaks down the bike and discusses the situation as well as his personal troubleshooting tips and techniques developed over his long racing and wrenching history.
