Good job and thanks for the thought and time to put it togeather.

Good judgment comes from experience. Unfortunately, the experience usually comes from bad judgment.

I'm looking to do a tail swap. Is it easier to just use the subframe from you bike and mod it to to fit what ever tail you use or would it be easier to get the subframe for whatever tail I get and mod the subframe to fit?

Depends on your skillset and the answer to this question: Can you weld?

No:

It's easier and safer to use your bikes' subframe and mod the tail to fit. Fiberglass is cheaper to start out with than welding (you don't need to buy a welder for example), and if you screw up fairings they just look ugly. As opposed to your subframe failing while you're riding.


Yes:

Mod the subframe. Unless you're patient and meticulous, the chopped and glassed tail section never looks or never fits quite right. Cutting and welding on a few new mounting points is an afternoon of work, a quick spray of paint and off you go riding.
