Hmmm.... an r6 seat wraps nicely around an YZF tank. There was also a amazing build by mrfreeze where he rebuilt his seat pan to fit.

Take a look at my thread for one option for mounting the rear of the tank and front of the seat.

ok.i was just thinkin on having someone make a bracket so that i can just bolt the back side of the tank the the frame.an the r6 seat has little plastic tabs that extend from the back of the seat pan.i was thinking on putting rubber bumers under the seat,an cutting holes in the tail for it to rest on the frame.how im going to fasten the seat down i have not figured out yet.

i have an fzr 1000 front tank mount coming from ebay.all the builds an write ups i read said this would allow direct bolt to the upper frame and use stock mounting points.

i think im ok with mounting.im stumbling now with the airbox.i realy dont want to hack a perfectly good airbox.does the fzr 400 box fit under the yzf tank?or should i take the rubber out of the tank an use it like velocity stacks?i read that this helps jet the carbs for pods.

Have two yzf swap questions.using this write up as my guide......http://heath.agdog.com/fzr/workbench/20 ... index.html

I bought the fzr 1000 front tank mount, an removed the mirror stay, but have no idea what to bolt the tank mount too.all I have are the two holes for the mirror stay.I un bolted the rad filler cap an tucked it under.other then the two mirror stay bolts,nowhere to mount the tank.am I missing something?


Question two, I cut along the tank seam like in the write up on the rear,do I have too cut across now? I'm starting to think I got in over my head here.no direction, and I can't post pics through this site or photo bucket.any help would be nice.my only other option is to post a video to YouTube an link to it here.
