Real cool, man. Good luck and keep us updated. What are your final plans? N/a bike? Muzzy exhaust?

Anytime man. I might have to do a sponsor pipe for that one. How could I charge you for advertising for me. Its not like its on a stock zx6, people will notice your bike. PM me when she fires up and we will talk about it.

Gotcha monster

Progress as of last night is as follows.

Had a talk with ZxALAN at twin peaks the other day and he told me measure, measure and measure. So I did just that, I measured everything three to four times. I knew that I would have to maybe notch the frame a 1/2 in or so and reweld with support brackets. Well after doing the measuring its looks like I would have to notch at that 1/2 and reweld. So today is the last ride for the ole beast, later tonight I will drop the motor and out the wiring and ecu. Will update pics when I start.

Ok guys I got a little delay unexpectedly this morning the wiring harness that I purchased was no good, three wires were cut. Kinda sucks cause I paid 250 for it and the ecu. But I contacted the seller which was from eBay and they said that they would send another. So on another note the 12 is stripped down to nothing. That's why I didn't get to go the the bbq, was working on it all weekend.

So I'm at work now and I have cut the frame to where I need it to be and welded it back. Did a 2200lbs stress test and its holding no bends or cracks. EXCITED!!! Anyhow ill have pics up tomorrow of the work from tonight.

Also thinking about making a custom swingarm. Any thoughts on this or input? Not gonna be a single side, not my style. Thinking more on the lines of 4 heat treated and hardened pipe to extend out and convert to both sides of the wheel. I'll draft it up and post.

Thanks for reading.
