    ok maybe im just an idiot but... are you using a 900rr subframe and moding the seat latch so the seat would fit right or are you just mounting it all on a gsxr subframe?

    Its the stock 900 subframe with a few mods. A little cuting and a little welding, nothing major at all. Then you use a gsxr tail, seat, or seat cowl, taillight, and seat lock.

    i wanted to do that, i still have the tail ... but i stumbled on those 2 problems, so i gave up and used the original gsxr tail

    problem no1 : you have to figure out how to mount the back end of the tail on the subframe - you can work it from underneath

    problem no2: you have to figure out how to mount the backlight on that tail - the original tail has mounting tabs for it

    the rest is the same. let me know if you did it
    well, dark it is....

    great write up... i'm starting my project.. i really like the way your tail is bent and welded up.. i might try JB Weld...

    anyway, here are pics... note, the fairing that is on the bike is not the one i am using... it is a test fairing so i know exactly where to cut ..

    any suggestions are appreciated!! im trying to figure out the easiest way to raise the tail.. i'm nervous about cutting and welding the subframe... and i don't really want to cut the upper or lower subframe "tube" at the frame itself...

    Looks gret guys. Im dong this conversion on my 97 RR. I have been debating on this or just doing a 98-99 tail. After seeing the end results this is the best way to go. Zack i have one question dude, did u bend your subframe up or no?

    after cutting and welding it, it's strong, i can take passengers on with no problem at all.

    I just got a 96 900RR and have been looking for something to do over the winter. Looks like I found it.

    Thanks for the detailed layout. I can pretty much follow this step for step. I'll let you know how things go if I take this route.
