This is noy only my 1st build, its my 1st bike as well. Ive been researching entirely too long and decided to jump in feet 1st. Found a 93 CBR 900 rr for a steal.



Also found a full VFR swingarm with brakes & a wheel cheap as well



I decided the wheel looked like crap, so I found a newer 5 spoke



Good thing im a machinist or this would start to cost





I found a set of risers from a Ducati Multistrada



Then i realized the Multisrada took 1 1/8" bars, not 7/8" bars:( easy fix though







Here is where I am now



Took about a month, guess its time to get it running before I rip the rear end off & bob the tail. Im gonna mount the battery & electrics behind the engine inside the frame. Found a Yamaha MT-03 light for the front end that hasnt come in yet. Im also looking for stainless steel radiator hoses as well. This should start to get interesing shortly....

If your a Streetfighter mag subscriber, look @ issues 205. The Slabby Straightliner feature has the tail section that I'm planning to build. Instead of a welded on option, it will be a bolt-on such as the OEM version except there will only be a single support post in the center instead of two support post on the outsides. The SSSA is being stripped this weekend for powder coating as well as the wheels & yokes. Pictures to follow once that is finished

Yes its been a while but 13 & 14 hour days at the shop arent condusive to bike building when you get home. I got the carbs rebuilt by James @ Guidry's Bike shop & its screaming again. If you need a float bowl gasket or any other carb part but dont need to buy an entire kit, try http://www.motorcyclecarbs.com Its where I the float bowl gasket by itself. Got the SSSA mounted fairly easily. Relocating electronics & fuse box is up next with all new handlebar switches as well as the longer clutch cable. Then its time to cut down the tail & mount a seat. Still havent decided if its gonna be a GSXR seat or an R1. Ideas?

A royal shit ton of 900's popping up lately. Looking good bud. I'll be watching!!

I also plan on doing Vfr swap myself. What was all needed? Spacers I'm sure but anything else? Mind sending me the specs on the spacers?

Thanks for all the props guys! As far as exhaust goes, I'm leaning toward the IXIL Superlow & one from Jesters Trick Bits. The one from Jester presents as a challenge as it's designed for a 954 with a flanged header. Anyone know if 954 headers will bolt up to a 900rr? I'm also open to any other exhaust ideas incase anyone has a particularly interesting can for sale. Wouldn't mine splitting the exhaust in two either but I wanna keep them low. I noticed last nigt when I walked through the shop that my bike was leaning a lil more than normal since I bolted up the SSSA & I can't seem the figure out why. Anyway, it prompted me to design a new kickstand in my head that I'll be writing out code for tonight. I also found an old Kawi tail that I'm gonna use. I need to get my MT-03 headlight as well so I can get my gauges setup as well. So much to do........

I forgot to ask bout the bodywork, you got a link for me? I can't seem to find a belly pan that I like. I'll use a cutdown version of the stock ones I have now if need be, but I'd rather not

900rr's kick so much ass. I really love mine. a buddy has one with like 100k on the original motor and it gets absolutely thrashed all the time. mine has 39k and my neighbors has 45k.
stock 93-94's are about my favorite looking sportbike too.
