Just before you start bolting it all back together, bear in mind that these frames benefit greatly from some bracing being added above the swinging arm pivot, especially if you're keeping it twin shock ;-)

mono shock (actualy) *Maybe. 2 shocks but in the middle like monoschok. just not on the outside.
I do agree. more bracing where I can. especialy when I decide to swap out the swing arm.
I do want to keep a wire wheel though. I want mismatch. 1 mag 1 wire....I just like that

Robbo had a Kz900 (or was it a 1000?) that has siamese mono-shock swingarm. I want to say he used two R6 shocks but you’ll need to search for his thread.

so...lets try this again. post magna(still sitting to the side)

got another piece of conduit connector for a sleeve.
kz stem was even narrower than the magna ones.
I couldn't shave the ninja stem to fit bearings cuz the bearings wouldn't even fit over the top threading ..WHOMP. I was irritated at this point..

so I went out back and got the KZ front end. hacked off stem from bottom clamp.
made a sleeve to mate stem to ninja clamp.
bought an ARC welder. found a dowl to fit in bottom of stem. welded that on. then welded dowl to a large washer...now stem is permanized(unless u take off the bearing)
I use the dowl to lengthen the stems bottom ghetto style.
learned my lesson last time ninja clamp is thicker and stem will be to short when done.


SO....after all that. I was too irritated to realize old bearing caps were in head still
...il just post pics.

anyone need an 04 ninja 6 stem




will have wheel back Monday.
motor in maybe sunday after it gets deep cleaned and painted.
once in. wiring and bolt just back together.
would like to add rearsets. (not at wild angle though)
