I got myself a nice 2008 Kawasaki ninja 500r with 14,000 miles for only 1,200!!
Only body damage and a bent lever when I got it.

I had idea in cutting up the rear and making a single seater out it for a Cafe' street fighter build. but I changed my mind when I picked up some old motocross bars I had from one of my dirt bikes.

once I stripped it down to the frame I went ahead and unbolted all the electronics. I then cut a piece of sheet metal to fit under the seat and hold all the computer electronics and wires.

at this same time I made my own smog block off plates for the engine making a shit ton of room under the gas tank. I was able to hide a lot more under there.


I then cut the from :oops: and took it to a welder to have it shortened for me.
that is a big mistake for the direction I want to go with for the bike.
the welder I took it too is very good and he can weld me a stronger frame for the rear.

now for the fun stuff!!

I ordered me some sweet renthal bar clamps and attached them to my triple trees
the motocross fit perfect and I even used the bar pad it came with.

I relocated my throttle cables and made sure nothing was snagging.

my front brake line and clutch cable wont reach and I have ordered longer ones off amazon.

in the next few months my lights and other parts will be coming in. after that I plan to take it back to my welding guy to have him weld me a cage and 12 oclock bar for the rear frame along with BEEFING it up and added stunt pegs to it.


I might even start denting my gas tank.:rock:

Your grinder still has its guard? Lammmmmme.
Kidding. Wish mine did... Sparks in the face aren't fun.

Anyway, looks nice nekkid.
I'd make a new coolant reservoir, or paint that one black... You did a good job of hiding it though, assuming that's it under the front of the tank like I think it is.
I'd hide the battery somewhere else, too.

But like I said, looking nice so far.
What do you have planned in the way of a headlight?

yeah its under the gas tank... I should paint it black since I have spray paint.

as for the grinder..... I had a piece of metal get stuck in my eye I had to go to the doctor to have him check it out:oops:
