Alright laid my fat across the tank and got one bolt in on the tank....the other hole is still off a hair but im gonna let it sit for a while and see if i can move it up a lil further to get the other one in. I did however start it for a brief moment just for and giggles and she sounds very nice. I must say I am excited.

Wow, that motor "bolted" in to that frame? You didn't have to make any brackets?

I ordered brackets from hybrid racing for the front mounts. Both bottom mounts bolt right up.

That's cool. For awhile they never had mounts available for the 04-05 600-750 frames. Before I bought my busa I wanted to swap a 1k motor in to my 600.

This was my bike, would of been a cool 1k swap.

Yup that would have been nice. When I first thought about doin the swap they didnt have the mounts. I put it off for a while and when I went to look again they had them.

Story was, there was a Ninja 250 that had a different swingarm and 6" wheel with a ZX12 engine. The frame was heavily welded and reinforced (all behind the plastics).

It still had the 250 plastics, but they were gapped considerably to cover the engine.

Apparently, this bike took lots of money "in Mexico".

I never saw it, but heard lots of stories.

I would think the sound produced by a 250 and a ZX 12 are worlds apart. It probably did move though

Took its first trip down the road today. A used shinko and wet road didnt provide much traction but it felt good. Gotta cut the plastics to fit exhaust and its done for now.

I was just gonna cut the right side out a bit for the exhaust to come through. I was lookin at it and wonderin how I could hold the bodywork tight if I just cut both sides like a race upper. Seems like they would flap in the wind on the bottom

you have to make a bracket to tie together the front two fairings out of a piece of flat aluminum strip

I figured that. I will probably cut out the right side and see how it looks. If I dont like it I will make a bracket and just chop the rest off.

You WILL need a bracket if you cut it. The Skinko hook up wont hook if a bird on the street. I got caught in a sprinkle and it was bad.

OK here is what I have now but im not sure I like it. I am thinking I should cut it higher up before it starts to curve back towards the front and it will look better. Only reason I cut it there is because there is a tab on both sides that I could attach a bracket to. Opinions
