It's got to be worth at least £600 surely??


I thought of keeping the fairing on the RR4 sm but mod the bellypan maybe.

Yeah maybe. We'll see what it goes for on ebay. I got to take the costly cnc wheel spacers off before I get it listed up though.

I think a photoshop job is worth doing to consider how the RR4 S&M bike will look! Laughing

rofl rofl Who's good at photoshop on here then? scratch

The suspension mods would have to be right to make it look good, if the frontend was jacked up high with some sm forks it sure would need rising a fair amount on the rear too scratch I'd also need to get all the work done & have it ready for blade day! ohmygod

Oh ok, I do wonder if it'll be to much for me to take on with such a short time scale. maybe a RR4 with a handlebar conversion would be quicker/easier?

Buy RR4 (easier said than done)

Buy renthals + grips + top yoke + longer lines + cables

45 mins later you're ready to rock.

Yep there's quite a few about but all going for well over £4000 & I've strong doubts I'll be able to raise that amount, thats why I'm thinking of a zx12r as there around £2500 to £3000 for a goodish one scratch

Top yoke conversion is more difficult on post2000 Blades coz of the sloping top yoke, cost about £200 for billet yoke n risers?

Yep it won't be a RR4 but I wouldn't be unhappy with a 954!

It won't be the lightest blade with my bulk on it though!! rofl rofl rofl

Just thinking about posting up about the gixer on gixerjunkies & see if anyone is interested in buying the complete package before I start striping it down. I wonder what it's worth as it is? scratch

The engine as it is has got to be worth £500
Complete front end, £350-£450
Rear end £250
Lockset + cdi......£300?

You could sell the wheels + discs as a set for £400
Then the forks for £300 maybe..suppose it all works out as £1500 give or take £50

Then you still got the bodywork + Lights, + other smaller value bits + pieces

Break it and you should be in the region of £2k - if you can get a grand or so for the ZX7 you'll have a nice 954, maybe even an RR that's rideable but needing some work.

Ah cheers mate, you got a deal!! rofl rofl

I would go with a RR4 for £3000 that needs a little work but the least I've seen um go with damage is for about £3500.

There's an RR5 in Cheshire - up for £3495 - needs £150's worth of 2nd hand bodywork. They are good for a deal - I haggled them down £500 a few times.

Is that the Cat C one on ebay? I'm watching a few on there, good to know they would drop that amount!

I could end up on a RR4 yet!! hyper

That's the one + there's an abundance of good 2nd hand RR4 + RR5 top fairings around for as little as £50.

They also have an RR6 (also in a dodgy colour) which needs a side fairing (loads around) but it also needs clocks (expensive) , headlight, and a top fairing which are realy hard to come by + screen Probably better of with a HK kit for an RR6 or 7.

You could use your 20% forum discount at the bladeshop for head light + clocks, they usually have a few in stock.

Yep spotted the RR6 too, it would be a better bike but like you said needs clocks etc & would cost more than the RR4 to put right. I'm feeling a little less upset now & a bit more excited at the prospect of a RR4, 5 or 6 even woot

Just got to get my ass in gear & get the suzuki & zx7r sold & see what I can afford!

Out of interest are the RR4 onwards blades dependent on the standard clocks or could I go with a after market clock to tide me over until I could afford some standard clocks?
