Project RRN with R6 tail plastics

Post by 1992fireblade on Fri 02 May 2008, 21:03

Got the spanners out & attacked the Fireblade with the angle grinder this afternoon.
Managed to get it to the trial fitting stage, endless measuring & marking out to do next, then the welding.

Not sure what to do with the bottom arms of the subframe yet. Was going to cut the bottom arms off the Fireblade subframe & get them welded onto the R6 subframe to extend them to get the desired tail height.

BUT........

The Fireblade subframe is made of bigger square tubing than the R6.

Any ideas Haggler?

RB900 fitted a R6 rear end to his street fighter the other month,he used the Yam subframe ,just cut the brace out and re welded............I got it done for him by a mate.

PM him,I,m sure he,ll give you some pointers.

Done a few more measurements today & managed to get the seat subframe nice & square.
Cut the tank bracket off the Fireblade subframe & ,marked out where it needs to be welded on the R6 subframe.

Keeping them all for now just incase it goes a bit Pete Tong! Lol

Once the make-over is complete will probably out all the original parts that I have accumalated to free up some space in the garage & finance the next bit of tampering!

Iv'e looked at this alot over the past few days, and (hope I don't offend) I cant decide weather I like it or not......

I'll reserve judgement for when it's painted up and see what it looks like then...

It certainly updates the rear end to look more like the 2001 onwards Blade, but ....nope...the jury is still out..!

Cheers Nige.
Still got the original parts. Would just need to get another Blade subframe to take it back to standard.
Got some footrest adjuster plates, R6 hugger, crash bungs & a different front mudguard to fit too.

Absolutley, some people look at all the polished stuff and the bagster colour coded seat covers on mine and think they look tacky and crap, but I love them, so your right, each to their own
