Guess who just scored a r6 swing arm, and new undertail. I did such a hack job on my first undertail it will give me a chance to make it nice and clean. And I might add another mod too my bike.

Wow it has been another year, (so that must make this 7 years since I started this project) :duh: :duh: has to be record for longest running project. :rofl:

I am finally done with my degree and I hope to be finishing the bike this summer, or at least get it ridable, I am also going through with the r6 swing arm conversion. keep watching for updates. :thumbsup:

Y'know the R6 arm is longer than the FZR arm .... you can shorten it of course.

It's also a LOT wider, requiring serious surgery to the frame. Know what you're getting into ...
