Master engine builder Tommy Bolton provides us a video of a Suzuki GSXR-1300 Hayabusa motor rebuild. As a multi-time national champion drag racer and crew chief, Tommy knows how to build a fast motorcycle. In this multi-part video series Tommy shows us a few of his tricks and attention to detail as he tears down a 2008 Hayabusa motor and rebuilds it with his “Tombo Touch”.

Step one is the teardown where Tommy shows us the proper way to tear down and inspect the motor.


I am an Oklahoma based writer, photographer, videographer and adventurer. I love telling stories about people. A motorcycle is my preferred means of travel, and I have over 5,000 hours piloting small airplanes.


  1. I’m interested in a Suzuki Hayabusa(1441)piston kit. I need to know your prices for different set ups, Thanks.
