thanks lads, fr499y it has a few scuffs on it m8 and the mounting for the catch underneath has snapped of so i will be fixing it somehow! i'm painting it so was not to fussed , if it was as you want i wud swap no problem. i can paint yours if you want. after i finish sorting the arsend i need to make some kind of cowling to fill the gap between the frame and tank . this will have to incorperate an air duct for the ram air and to cover the thermastat housing on the opposite side of frame, have seen similar kind of thing on hayabusa streetfighter but can't seem to find a supplier.
heres some pics of said gap



this is one ugly front end without it;s clothes on. think i have my work cut out here Rolling Eyes

Thanks stan may take you up on that can you easily bend it by hand. did think about altering tank but i think it will look to bulky and i would still need to incorperate the ram air inlet. i am thinking of cutting off the thermostat/radiator filler crap off the other side, wich will mean changing radiator to one with it's own filler cap and fitting an inline temp sensor and just doing away with the thermostat as i can manage without it as it has a manual choke, what you reckon?.

Update , ok been working on making the panels to fill the gap between the tank and frame but also to incorperate the ram air ducting.This will be a three stage procedure 1 make panel/pattern for mould 2 from this make a mould with fibreglass 3 using the mould make the panels out of fibreglass.
started by using origonal filler panel ,cutting it down so i basically just had the mounting points and the shape where it meets the tank.

then i bonded on some pieces of block styrene and cut and sanded this to roughly the shape i want

i used a paint pot lid to get the right size hole in end

then i glassed over this to stiffen it all up then used body filler to get the shape perfect.

one side pattern done and on bike one still to finish.


be glad when this part is all done, fibreglass bloody horrible stuff to work with.

Interesting project..... thumbs
I used to have an all black ZZR1100C3

My 'fightered Hayabusa wasn't too pretty
when we pulled off the tupperware.


Ended up extending the loom. Fuses under the seat,
relays under tank behind motor,
quite a bit of head scratching.


There's a few places making infill panels
(for the Busa's) but mine are home made.

Nice one Tony i think thats the most zzr i have seen modded anywhere, yea when i took fairing off i was having second thoughts not too pretty!.think i will also be doing a fair bit headscratching, ohh well nowt like a challenge from time to time.
I got these yolks because the zx12r usd forks are 20mm shorter and you can drop forks 50mm with these, got them from billetbikebits spoke to guy called roy martin for advice,sent him both my yolks for calcs for cnc machine and back came these babies top job.although i want them more highly polished and am thinking of carrying the polishing thru the frame and swingarm. Plus i think i have decided on colour scheme,mainly black with a kawasaki like pearl green thrown in wherever. was going to be black and white but every man and his dog seems to doing bikes that colour at the moment.

My ram-air tubes go through the frame.
We just put some mesh over them made from
the old oil cooler guard.

(im not too flash at wireing)
Just inside the frame is a plasic tube that
connects to the air box. The guy who did
most of my wireing drilled a hole in the
tube just behind the frame and put in some
L.E.D's. I didnt know untill I put the lights
on and the ram air-ducts lit up !!
