Hey,

I’m working on a co-workers ‘90 Nt650. A previous owner did an absolute hack job on the rear subframe and attempted a “custom” electronic tray and other interesting design features. Needless to say, it’s not going back the way it came to me.





I bought a ‘01-02 R6 tail section to mock-up. It’s side profile isn’t bad but it’s really wide so I’m looking for something a bit narrower and suited for the slimmer V-twin frame.




He would prefer having a pillion seat but not required. I want something with soft curves to flow with the soft curves of the tank (which we believe is from a Cbr600F2). Fabricating a custom subframe isn’t out of the question but I want to keep completely custom body work as a last resort.

Any suggestions?

Later, Doug

RS125 seat be nice
My thoughts as well. I was going to attempt an RS or NSR/NSF tail on my Hawk but went with the old Monster seat (because lazy)

$197 from airtech and probably in stock
I was looking at a bunch of their products earlier but mostly Ducati and Suzuki tails. No idea why I didn’t check the Honda section. DOH!

It’d be nice if they gave some sort of shipping estimate online or had an online store for that matter. I guess I’ll give them a call Monday.

Thanks.

Later, Doug

Did a quick'n dirty photoshop of an old ad with this tail. Honda Unveils Its 185 pound (wet) Moto3 Race Bike « MotorcycleDaily.com – Motorcycle News, Editorials, Product Reviews and Bike Reviews
Tail Section - NSF250R - Fiberglass - Stock shape (rscycles.com) -$230 price tag....

Second round is with a 98 rs125r tail 1998 Honda RS125R NX4 RS125 - RMD Motors

can't really say much in terms of dimensional accuracy as I just googled a bunch, then messed around in photoshop but figured it may help to visualize.

Thanks for the photoshop RLD! Really helps me out.

Sebspeed, the bottom of the Monster seat has been butchered with what looks like a hacksaw. The latch has been removed and some other “mods” done.

He and I both kind of want something cooler looking than a Monster seat. He wouldn’t mind having a passenger section which will be lost with any race tail unless I decide on some cutting and fiberglass work.

Easiest solution is reusing the Monster tail with a new better fabbed subframe but where’s the fun in that? Lol
