I'll get my paper picture up but in the meantime here's the start to my thread build.

I bought my 1995 yzf600r August of 2009 and immediately began tearing it down. I've always liked the fighter look but never decided to go for it on my previous bikes.

It arrived at its current state after a winter of purchasing parts and a part of spring getting it all together

Mods/Maintenance:

Veypor Gauge
Rear Subframe Removed
NRC covers
Vortex racing clip ons
vortex racing gas cap and oil cap
New Oem brake and clutch levers
D3 grips
Oem clutch and throttle cable
Oem thottle sleeve
Dual Oval Headlight
CRG bar end mirror
swingarm plate mount
sliders
Ducati monster taillight
-1 in the front with new chain and rear sprocket
new hardware everywhere
new gaskets everywhere
new fluids everywhere
factory pro stage 3 jet kit
K&N Ind. Pods
cut down yoshi pipe
wrapped header
front and rear HH pads
front and rear SS braided brake lines
new battery. sheetmetal undertail
probably some more things i cant remember

future mods

Carbon fiber front fender and tank
Front Brake Mst Cyl Purchased
shorty pazzo levers
new tires
up two or three in the rear sprocket
clutch Purchased
Shift Kit Purchased
ignition advance Purchased
front and rear wave rotors
hot pink or gold powdercoated rims
powdercoat frame and swingarm
Maybe a new headlight assembly (at least HIDs in the one i have now)
Complete engine rebuild with more aggressive cams
Head rebuild port and polish with stiffer springs
VFR 750 Swingarm Purchased
Attack Performance Rearsets
Clear up tail section (cut subframe possibly)
MOTY battery
Relocate ignition
Belly pan

Exhaust..reroute? brand new D&D system..not sure at this point

Geez once I start buying its hard to stop.

Just bought a new Front Brake master cylinder. One of the small box ones. I've always hated have a small cup sticking up from my clip ons.

Pictures to follow as everything arrives

Think I may have sourced a 1997 vfr swingarm set up indecent condition!

It's amazing how hard it is to find the right year set up. Hopefully the deal goes through.

Negative on the swingarm! People on craigslist just dont want to part things out. May have to buy a complete bike and part it out myself at this point. Engine should be out this week. Just hoping second gear is alright!

Re: Project 117 )95 YZF600 Bobbed Fighter(

Haha YES. Picked up a black D&D muffler for only 40 bucks!

wicked cheap. Figured I'll cut it down and swap the yoshi out for the D&D and see which sound I like better.

Re: Project 117 )95 YZF600 Bobbed Fighter(

So I got my entire OEM order in the mail the other day. Ill snap some pictures of those a little later.

Found a guy on ebay with a whole crap load of OEM parts new in the bags. Pistons, Rods, etc. Even the chain dampers which have been sold out on every OEM site I've been on. And even a brand new OEM cylinder! He's got a lot of stuff. Anyway, everything he's got for sale is pretty decently priced so I may just go with a stock rebuild as finding pistons for this bike is pretty damn hard. I've heard Wiseco makes some but they come with a large price tag. I'll just sit on the ebays for a bit as I sent Wiseco an email and am awaiting a reply to see just how large that price tag is. Looking into a Ninja 636 radiator swap too. Got a lot of possibilities just need to see how things pan out

Still looking for exhaust. I'd like something CarbFibe. Got a few things I'm watching on ebay.

Basically Ebay rules all.

Re: Project 117 )95 YZF600 Bobbed Fighter(

Haven't posted in some time. The holidays got sort of crazy. Found a complete 1996 VFR 750 swingarm swap rim and all that I purchased. Should be here in a couple of weeks so I am so entirely happy I finally found a decently priced full swap. Of course pics will be up as soon as it comes in. This build just got much more exciting.
