Hello all, im getting into the streetfighter game and need some help.I plan to do somewhat of budget build, trying not to spend excessive amounts of money. I picked up a 98 cbr600 last night for $150. blown motor, no fairings, no headlight, all in all missing a bunch of shit. im picking up a parts bike off my buddy tonight, a 97 cbr600, it was in an accident but the motor has ~13k on it, i plan to swap it out. I got a few questions and heres where you guys come in...While the motor is out of the bike what should i do to it?(it hasnt run in a year) probably jetting the carbs and throwing an aftermarket exhaust on it. but is there anything else i should check? Ive seen a lot of f3's with a different tail section(2 separate seats) which i want but i dont know where to begin, im good at fabricating stuff and im half decent at welding but what tail/subframe would fit the best? thats really it for now, ill probably have more questions but would like some opinions. Thanks in advanced.

A tail swap always makes a F2/F3 look better. As for which one to use thats gonna be up to whatever you thinkk looks best on your bike. Im going with a 07/08 cbr600rr tail and subfrome on my 92 F2. ive also seen bikes with R6 tails that look great. If you have the skills theres nothing a little cutting/bending/welding cant make possible. Ive seen people do tail swaps with the stock subfrome, just bending and cutting to make it fit.

I'd swap out the Automatic cam chain tensioner for a manual one. Can be done when the engine is in the frame but is a bit easier to do when the motor is out and it is a known weak link in our bikes. As far as seas/tail swaps you have many options. I decided to chopp off the stock welded subframe and go with a complete 1000RR tail set up. My friend fucked up the welding though so I need to re do a couple things.
