FINISHED my Project!

Started my tail swap project, putting an 03-04 ZX6R tail on my 07 ZZR600. Pretty simple really with some minor welding to the 636 subframe attachment points. I am still waiting on my rear cowling, seat latch, and misc hardware and a trip to the welder. After that it's time for some paint and it will be done. Pictures to follow ;)

Sub Frame removed



Old sub frame with the front portion cut-off (03-04 portion sitting in front of it)


Using the front portion of the old sub frame for the upper part on the new sub frame. This will allow me to use the correct rear tank mount points.



A few mock-up pics for reference prior to welding.



You will notice a strip of metal accross the top portion of the frame on previous pics. This to prevent the top from spreading prior to welding so it matches up with the front portion.

Well, other than paint, attaching the license plate, some cleaning up and some minor plastic welding, the big stuff is finished. The welder ended up charging me $0 as a thank you for what I do, he simply said "keep those planes flying" Very cool.

and now the pictures...

You can notice the small repair area, just need to weld a crack. ;)
















I have a few other details to finish, fasteners and such.
