Laughing Cheers guys!

I'll give the 7r a good going over as it's filthy + I need to check the bearings, brakes etc & make sure it's all safe & then get it MOTed & take it for a blast & see how I feel about it, I once had a gsxr750 srad & thet thing was so much fun, light, fast & it loved to be reved, I loved that bike, fitting a bigger engine would be cool & looks like quite a straight forward mod but for the amount of power gained versus the extra weight & lower rev limit it may not be as much fun as it is???

I think I need to focus back on the punisher as I'm now getting distracted! Laughing

I'll start a proper thread once the punisher is all done Wink

You can also change com rods on the 7 to make 793cc........or you could put a 11 engine in LOL


The 9 engine wont be much heavier imo, infact the C or E might even be lighter? if any extra weight is there you wont notice it as the 7r is a porker anyway! about 200k if I remember right? 203k I think.

The 9b's were almost 215 kilos, but the C > on was 183k dry

I tell you what a 711 conversion sounds great! eyebrow

I wonder how hard that would be to do???

Yeah your quite right about the weights of the 9's!

Ok now I really need to refocus on the punisher as I'm gonna get carried away here! rofl

Tell me about it, it looks like the only conversion done is the 7/9 swap but my mind is now racing with all kinds of silly thoughts such as zx9r, zx10r, zzr1100, zx12r & zzr1400 engines! screwy scratch rofl

It's all pie in the sky as I can't really afford to be swapping out for a new engine & from what I can see on ebay the zx7r engines don't seem to sale very well...

9 engine in 7's has been done loads a nice 04 zx10 lump would be fun, keep the raw power of the original 10r in a flickable chassis of the 7 would be mental but keep it faired as it would be a cool street sleeper rather than a retro z750 look.

I had the photographer from streetfigthers mag contact me to do a photo shoot for their mag but I had to turn him away as the engine was out being worked on but the editor just contacted me again to ask if they could have my bike on there stand at the westpoint exeter bike show & will re arrange the photo shoot! so thats cool!

The show is in 9 days time & I've a bit of finishing to do to get it ready such as getting a good replacement shock, building some new clocks & respraying the bodywork! I'll get it done though!

I also entered my bike into britians got biking talent where they have a section for streetfighters! I only entered it for a bit of a laugh but have a voted if it floats yer boat! Laughing

Here's the link:-
http://www.motorcyclenews.com/MCN/community/Media-Gallery-Results/Media-Gallery-Detail/?mediaItemId=95731

I bought a replacement shock off of a aprilia 1000 rsv, it arrived but the bleedin thing was bent!



I contacted the seller & he gave me a full refund including postage & told me to keep the shock SO now I've got to find another.

I'm in the proicess of working on the replcement digital clocks off a moped, I've sorted what wire is for what & the speedo reads upto 188mph so thats good so now it's just a case of making it look nice.

This is what they looked like when they arrived


I've since give it a clean up & polished the face & yesterday I moulded some clay arond them to get some kind of idea how I'd like them to look, it's dried out now & cracked up a bit but will work as a template for me to work off of Smile



I also cut the wiring loom a bit shorter here & there to keep the air intake area clear.
