Hi all,
I have been working on converting my '97 F3 into an F4i (fairings, instruments, lights, the whole hog..), with a full 954 front end, Brembo MC, CF front fender..the build is on the other forum..don't know if it would be appropriate to link though.

My question is, has anyone converted a sportbike like the F3 into a "stock" factory look streetbike, like a CB1300 or CB400, instead of a street fighter?

you going to have to custom fab a upper fairing stay and also the side fairing mounts. the tail is usually the easiest part to swap over.

that doesnt change the fact that you are goinh to have to fab a upper stay, upper stay mount since there is none. also fab some side fairing mounts too. at that rate you can sell the cb and get a f4i for about 2500 and the cb is carbed isnt it? the f4i is fuel injected

you mean keep the gay banana seat and put a round 4-7 inch headlight on it..

Yea its been done. usually years ago people were using acerbies cyclops.

it would be just a naked bike. only 2 types of bikes are streetfighters, oil cooled gsxr and cbr 900s. the rest are just masturbation. ahhaha I kid... Or do i?

:shocker:

I Started out with the intention of making a "Naked" CBR years ago.

Fitted a CBR 600 F4 "Carbed" tail with the intention of going for a factory kind of look in the end.



But it didnt last long before i ripped it apart and aimed more for the streetfighter look



Which i just didn't like and ended up going back to fairings for using on the strip as i bought a F2 to run naked.



Which i started to "Streetfighter"



But ended up selling to get a FZR 1000



Man, ive not seen these photos in about 2 or 3 years, had to dig into my old Photobucket account to get them :thumbsup:

yes, I bought and sold an f3 with f4i fairings, looked great

ALSO, not exactly what you are asking, but, there is an old pic, about 8 years old or so, floating around the internet, of a 929 with mint yellow oem 03 600rr full body kit, and it looks fucking badass. you dont notice unless you look closely.

the newer bodywork on the f1/f2/f3 is a really common thing if you know where to look. I just saw a hurricane on craigslist with full f4i bodywork. do it up, it looks decent.

Hi All,
Thanks for all the suggestions.
I am having extreme difficulty getting the F4i front on the F3..I have spent literally 3 months on it and have just given up.
That's why i thought I would go for a CB1300 naked bike look.
Wanted suggestions for headlamps and also how does one mount a handlebar on a CBR954 triple tree..?

i did 600 miles on it Wednesday alone. I just wish it had an extra gear, revving the snot out of it at highway speeds in the right lane lol.

i have to say, i reach destination alot slower on a cruiser. I need a hypermotard lol
