    Hey guys, I just bought a sst turbo hayabusa. I've had a few vw and a couple subaru powered sandrails but this is my 1st mc sandrail. I mainly ride in the glamis gordons well area. I dont know much about hayabusa motors and did a lot of searching on this forum last night but I couldnt find the answers I was looking for, maybe you guys can help me out? Its a turbo hayabusa running 6lbs of boost and I had a few Q's
    1. How much fuel pressure should I see on the guage?
    2. whats the oil capacity on the hayabusa motor?
    3.where is a good place to buy chains & sprockets? Are they all the same or do they differ from buggy manufactures?
    thanks,
    G-mo

    Welcome to MBN!
    43 psi, 1,750 ml,Sprocket Specialties and your local MC shop for chain.

    SST has some areas you will want to watch and know about. The chain tensioning system is difficult, the tubing where the rear upper A-arm mounts is known to crack at joints or tear, rear suspensions is always drooped out, front end geometry is poor.

    Those things make the car unreliable and it will plow as you turn. I have one that is heavily modified. See Another Mini in the project section for details. It is the car in my Avatar.

    Good luck!

    1. stock fuel pressure apx 42 psi, your pressure regulator should have a vacuum/boost line to modify from "normal" pressure.
    2. stock oil pan 3 qts' ish. Add 2 qts fire it up and run for a few seconds and check the sight glass and a little and repeat. lots of variables like deep sum oil pan, oil cooler size, length of cooler lines etc.
    3. as for chains and sprockets it seems that different chains/sprockets for different people.

    I might be off on the amount of oil I suggested and would need to look at the sidecase (it's marked) or the manual. I'm going off memory sitting here in Africa.

    Get the owner's manual on CD or download off the net. I found one for $5.

    You can also ask the question posted elsewhere about your turbo sounding like a kazoo and fuel pressure dropping from 44 to 40 at Hayabusa.org
