Yamaha fzr 400 3tj Street fighter project.

Recommended Posts

The ninja is the cheepest tail conversion so far going to cost about £110-£150 to get the Front seat, undertray, subframe and tail fairings. The last thing im not sure on is a pillion seat or a seat cowl ? If im going to be modding the subframe, is it wise not to cary pillions ?

Custom belly pan in process! Smile
I marked the area I want the shape of the belly pan to be so I had lines to cut to.




First bit cut



Then sanded down






Looks rough but havent finished sanding it yet, will look nice a smooth in a couple of days Smile

Ahh, I really dont like the tail of the bike though lol, I love street fighters aswell, never know, I may buy some new fairings when I start riding it the wind gets to much.


Does it take alot to get the zxr subframe on ? Or just a bit off force lol.

go on the kwak forum av a look around you'll prob find spec measurements ur after without difficulty...if u av to force it to fit ...good chance its gona break at some point and if your riding it when it happens ....OUCH..!

Why not check out some race body work most fibreglass race seats can be made to fit virtually any rear subframe and as you cant weld ...go dwn that route...fibreglassings pretty easy and if u screw it up its easy to fix

So I could get a zx6 rear racing fairing and it should bolt straight on ?? Also, would I need to change the under tray you know ? customfighters forum isnt very helpful lol

the race rear seat will come bare its just the seat unit itself...no subframe checkout ebay for a race seat ,style, model etc your after or do a google image search the only thing youd have to do is fabricate your seat mounts and thats a pretty simple job i'm sure between both yourself and chad you could do a good job thumbs

Seen several motor swaps with the FZR400.

They seem a popular bike for it.

One of the better ones had a 900 Fireblade engine.

Went OK.

Putting the Yam 600 motor into the 400 is very popular,been done quite a few time.

Seen the 400 with everything from big single cylinderthumper motors to RD/RZ350 2-strokes.

I think using the YZF1000 motor would be more complicated but would keep things "interesting"

One of the lads out here (Pete) put a 300+hp intercooled Turbo Hayabusa motor into a GSXR600/750 frame. Wasnt an easy fit but anything is "do-able" if you set to with a grinder and welder !

Here's a couple of pics as well Smile ohhh and I got some more rust off the down pipes Smile


Fairing on the bike just to see how it lines up.




Back to sanding and cutting, edges rough as heck here so back to the start....


looks better then before but think im gonna buy a belly pan for a fazer 600 and make it fit it on lol.

Belly pan on the bike.



Some more rust off Smile



Front fairing off, head light soon to be gone! Smile

Brake pads Smile (yes I did take the caliper apart to check them lol.

Rear fairings off.

Can kinda see where the subframe is bent.
