So I picked up a 1991 FZR6 for a whopping $600 AUD from a guy locally who'd already replaced all the filters/plugs/everything. Bike ran great and sounded solid but was a right fucking mess to look at...it had fairings :nuts:

Anyway, ladies grab your lube because we're about to start this long, slow and anti-climatic roller-coaster.

Sweet! I always like seeing guys build FZRs. Here's mine right before I sold it.


Never really did get around to finishing it proper.

Fuck bro, dont get your hopes up yet. Wait till i get to the "where did this part go" stage and you'll change your mind.

So I'm not sure what im going to do for the tail and thats what i want to work out next. Ive ordered a Duc 1098 tail for my gladius that i can have a look at on it or even chuck my Gladius tail on the FZR to see how it looks. Still might look a little odd though.





The other option and my current favourite is to chop that mother fucker down to seat only setup. I can chop and my brother is a professional welder so its also a reasonably easy option.

How much of a cunt was the swinger to do? Did you need to relocate the shock mount?

It was the toughest part of the build by far. Swingarm needed to be narrowed, frame widened, shock relocated, rearsets moved, and sprocket spaced. If I were to do it again I would use a newer R6 shock. I forget the year that fits that bike. It was far too stiff with the stock shock on it.

Thanks for the info dude.

So I pulled the rest of the shit out and chopped off part I the subframe. I'm leaving the rest until I find out what tail I'm going to use. ImageUploadedByMO Free1384757209.553863.jpg

So I picked up a R6 tank today and a zx6 swinger. 220 for the pair. It's a decent fitting tank (I need to make a new pivot bracket for it but whatever) my only complaint is the gap where te tank becomes skinnier than the frame. Anyone done anything to make the tank line up better? I am thinking about making something out of fibreglass or something but I'm not sure what yet.

And I think you're right about the Gladius tail suiting it better. the Duc is just a little to..wide? or something. I dont know but that tail was originally for my Gladius so I think i'll start installing that today and then use the gladius tail on the Fizzer and see how it looks seing as it'll be sitting around anyways.
