The PC version of "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" had a massive community that developed thousands of modifications and unofficial add-ons for the game. The mods enable players to use new weapons, character models and especially vehicles that were not developed for the original game. With a program designed to replace existing models within the game, players can quickly and easily add a variety of new elements, including a motorcycle mod based on the Suzuki Hayabusa.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Download and install the San Andreas mod installer (see Resources).

  2. 2

    Download the Suzuki Hayabusa mod (see Resources). Save to a location where you will be able to easily locate the file later. Do not unzip the archive.

  3. 3

    Double-click the SAMI icon to launch the program. Click "Install a Mod."

  4. 4

    Click "Browse" under the San Andreas Directory heading and locate the primary destination for your "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" system files. Click "OK" once you have found the appropriate directory.

  5. 5

    Check the box marked "Zip/RAR File" under the mod location heading. Click "Browse" and find the zip file for the Suzuki Hayabusa mod that you downloaded. Highlight the correct file and click "OK." Click "Continue" through this screen and the next.

  6. 6

    Type a name for the vehicle in the space provided. Use "Hayabusa" or create your own. Limit the title to less than 12 characters to avoid a potential crash in the game.

  7. 7

    Select the motorcycle you wish to replace in the game. Pick a type of bike which can be acquired easily or at a specific location so you will know where to find it immediately when you start playing. Click "Continue" and "Install" on the next page.

  8. 8

    Launch "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" and begin playing the game. Whenever the motorcycle you replaced would normally appear, the Hayabusa mod will appear in its place.

Tips and warnings

  • If you own the second version of "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" for your PC, you will need a patch that reverts the program to the first version (see Resources). The developers at Rockstar created the second version in order to prevent mods to the game, as a result of the controversial "Hot Coffee mod."
