Which do you like better and why?

I have a 2009 zx 14 but I wanted to ask a question about the two of what I call the best bikes on the planet. Which do you like better between the ZX 14 and Hayabusa whether be Gen I or Gen II and why? I know it comes down to preference but someone on here has researched these bikes more then I and have went either with 14 or Busa and I would just like to hear reasons in your choices. I hope this doesn't turn into a bash but things to look at from each persons views in hopes to learn something new.
Keep in mind the two bikes not 1000cc. Base all your opions off of facts or experiences please.

GenII Busa and if you have to ask why then you need a 14.
Sock out the store with no changes Busa is fastest.
Its lower and has no butterfly issues comming and lifiting front end.
Modified well nothing touches a busa when it comes to modifiying them there is just to much stuff out there for it.

So stock its fastest
Modifed its fastest

In the middle it up in the air.

That is an interesting concept I guess everyone has their opinions on this subject I was merely looking for reasons. You are right about one thing though and that is modified the Busa is endless however stocked I am not so sure, I have ripped many 08 Busa's both bikes stock I guess it comes down the rider. I almost bought a Busa but I remember the problems I was having with it but that was the Gen I and not the Gen II. I hear that the Gen II 08 has had recall issues care to elaborate on that for me?

JSmooth, I was going to ask for unopionated comments on the two bikes. I could care less which one is the fastest, has more aftermarket parts, or gives you wood everytime you get near or on one. I want comfort. I am, 6-1, 250lbs. They all go fast. Been there, done that.

the zx 14 is cushier, and has slighlty more comfy seat and clip ons for me, but Im 5-8.
The zx14 vibrates less and feels more refined.
The busa has stiffer suspension and is more suited for a heavy or sporting rider.
At 250 lbs the busa suspension will be better for you, but ergo's are tighter IMO.

How does the Gen 2 busa compare to the Gen 1 14? By that I mean a real biased opinion performance and 1/4 mile. Talk mods and most hp seen from both. I have a 2009 14 SE but have been thinking about getting Busa for a while...

There is no comparing kawasaki had to make a new 14 to compete. There are more mods for the busa meaning you can make more hp for the busa. The busa can be lighter so it can also be quicker Brock has made more hp with the busa than the 14 and has also been quicker on the busa than the 14 not the 14r.
