Hey been on here for a bit and have been lurking for a long time, So I decided to make a thread for my Katina build
Here's a bit of back story. My friend found this chick that had a katana and she wanted speakers put on it ( I know I know) Well she got the speakers and started to hang with our group. One night I get a call and she dropped the bike and did some damage. Everything was cosmetic broken fairing, headlight, mirror and bent the hell out of the exhaust. I she asked us how much it would be to put it back to stock. Gave her a price and well she got her dad to just buy her another bike...:wtf: (I know I know)
Gave her an offer and well got the bike for $200:party-smiley::party-smiley:
Here are some pics.

After a bit of work



Chopped the rear a bit



Put some Dumb lights on, a bike computer and the stock Tac

Well a small update, got a header and exhaust from a 600 bandit. Also swapped the upper trip and clip-on's so now they sit under the top trip.



Heres a pic of the chopped tail and taillight.

Hey Bro Hate to try to pry secret info from you but i am starting my project soon and I was wondering if you could give me some insight on what the process of chopping the tail is. I am on a limited budget and would like to know if chopping the tail would be cost effective and if i even have to tools to do it. thanks in advance

Those look to have been some ugly fairings...

What's required to make the bandit exhaust fit the kat?

Thanks for the link. Something to think about, when I get to my kat. I have a D&D but I want a big fan of the sound. Already have a jet kit sitting here waiting.

Can't wait to see how it turns out.

I really want to do something like this
cut out the white and add new support where the black is only problem is I don't have a welder.
Get all the pieces cut and mocked up and look on craigslist for a local welder, kat frame is steel so any old welder can do it, lots of people are under employed and doing side work.
Last time I had some welding done on steel it was less than 50 bucks.

Well did some chopping and this is what I came up with

I was left with a mess of wires and no place to put them

I shortened the wires and came up with a mount for the rear brake res. Then mocked up a brake light and the seat.

I know the brake light is crooked Its was just held on with tape.


Im still trying to figure out what I want to do with the seat and rear brake light. I might make a seat out of fiberglass.
