It's not a straight swap. I looked at someone's (Shaveliva, on Ninjette) build prior to this and he had to cut the frame for the petcock to fit in. He also needed a custom rear bracket for the tank. Before I cut, I'm going to see if I can relocate the petcock back a bit more. I'm new to modding so I gotta ask for more advice and read up on more stuff.I like that choice on the street tracker pan!
Is that new gen tank going to be a bitch to fit or is that a straight forward swap?
Yah projects stack up after awhile. I'm looking for a welder right now since I have no skills in that department. I need him to redo my subframe portion. I'll stop by to check out your projects.I've been wanting to do a ninja 250 project for quite some time, but I have to get three other projects done and out of the way. Excited to see how this shapes up!
Bill Werner raced a Ninja 650 in AMA flat track.
The ninja can definitely pull off the tracker look and race in the dirt. Good luck with the build
If you have to raise the rear of that tank a little bit it shouldn't be an issue. Nice thing about those new gen tanks is they have mounting brackets up at the front. So you can make some small scoops to hide any gap with the frame to get it to fit right. Then for the back you can just chop and re-do the entire seat frame.I wouldn't worry too much about the seat and the fact you already cut it. Get that tank where you want it and in a spot that can clear the petcock and then just fill what ever gap to the tank from the seat with more fiberglass. Fiberglass is pretty damn easy to work with..
