Default Kane's SRAD fighter build. Motocyco tail install.

Link to parts 1 - 4

The Kane Chronicles part 5: 08-20-07 Subframe building

Allrighty now. This project has been very slow going for me. I expected to have it finished three months ago but life gets in the damn way. Here is the build to get the new Motocyco tail installed. Click the link above for the earlier entries to this build up.

I knew that the fat SOB stocker had to go. Originally I was going to just do a complete bobber, but in the interest of being somewhat street legal I decided to purchase a fighter tail. This brought me very close to my $2500 total budget for this bike but I think the results will be worth it.

Since I bought a custom tail section logic dictated that the entire subframe had to be built from scratch. So I went and bought some tubing and then went to town. Even though I used steel for the material it actually turned out lighter than expected. The tubing is a thin wall design and all the add on items are out of aluminum It turned out very strong so I know it will take a hit and stand up to it.

Fab for the seat mount.


Initial mock up for the rest of the frame


Once I got the frame tacked together I then started building the light mounts, ECU mount and battery box. The battery box took as much time as building the subframe but I think it came out perfect. It hold the battery, Ignition switch and the starter solenoid. Plus I mounted the volt regulator under the box to get fresh air.

Here is the paper mock up of the battery box. I used a ton of construction paper for every thing that needed to be made. It saves a lot of time and make nice templates for the real pieces.


After the mock up is made then the pieces get cut and put together for final fitment.


The ignition switch under the left tail section

Itís a tight fit but it all fits.


Canít forget the taillight donated from my friends 03 GSXR 1k. The tail was designed with this in mind so my light are nice and legal. Plus that light is badass.




Here are shot of the subframe after final welding last Saturday and then after I painted it and mounted it to the bike for the final time.


It was mounted with the factory stock bolts.


Here is another cool goodie for the bike. My brass knuckle heal guards. The trademark of a fighter.



NOW FINALLY I HAVE A PICTURE OF AN ACTUAL BIKE. YAY!!!! The pics are slightly blurry but they were shot in crap light with a crap camera.


Nice stubby tail


and a fat ass, oh yeah!

I don't like that tail, persay, but I can appreciate the work that went into it.

So, I guess there is no issue with leaning the battery like that? I was thinking about doing the same thing with mine, but further back in my solo tail.

Looks great. Not used to seeing a tail like that not pointed straight up in the air though. Can't wait to see it painted.

Nope, the battery is at the very same lean as the stock setup with the SRAD bikes. The R6 leans just the same. As long as you use a sealed gel battery you will be fine.

I think the same thing. The Motocyco bike that the tail was originally designed for pretty much points the same way. I didn't like it at first but the look grew on me and the price was very right compare to European fare.
