HOW TO:Mount R6 rearsets on The FZR600 frame

Postby tlc2cann » Sat Mar 21, 2009 12:28 pm

Heres my write up on mounting R6 rearsets on the FZR frame. I hope this can be understood it looks kind of complicated.

The exaust may have to be adjusted or a new pipe added in order to clear the new rearsets.All of the aluminum is T-6061 bought from speedy metals( they sell small cuts of metal -aluminum, chrome alloy, steel,and the threaded rod etc..) for strength.

The reason I use 3/8 plates is they can be easily cut and shaped with what most of us have laying around our shop(drill,bench grinder,side grinder).These parts could be machined from a large chunk if you have the right equipment.I tried this at first , but its very hard to machine a 1& 1/2 inch hunk of t-6061 aluminum with a drill press and a side grinder.

All bolts should be grade 8 or better for strength and lock tight should be used on everything. The heim joints used for the shifter linkage can be bought cheap on ebay or from summit or jeggs ( I think on summits and jeggs websites they are listed as rod ends but a heim joint and a rod end look like the same thing to me) are 1/4 inch right hand threads.(metric is available too )

YOU NEED TO INSTALL A LOCK NUT ON THEM ( WHICH IS NOT SHOWN IN THE PICS) SO THEY DONT BACK OFF.You can put a steel or aluminum sleeve on the threaded rod for added strength or a rubber hose to make it look better. the threads on the heim joints and threaded rod are 1/4 x 28 ( fine thread).The R6 brake line bolts right up to the FZR brake caliper.

I managed to mount the gsxr1000k1-k4 rearsets.
Biggest hasles were
(A)swing arm clearance
(B)brake master completly different angle

The stock gsxr1000 gearchange bar fitted straight onto fzr gearbox shaft lever.(lucky)

Mounts for gsxr 55mm apart and fzr 60mm apart so holes sloted and fzr mount cap head allen key bolts used.

Great job on the r6 conversion.Funny the r6 involves more adapting.
Please be aware that k1-k4 might not work with stock exaust guys as my pipes small and re-angled for ground clearance prior to pegs.
The k1 conversion moves pegs up 1 and half inch and back 2 and 1/2 so stock exaust would be issue.

Cheers Steve

I've got a question: are there any rear sets to fit fzr frame 'plug&play', without any mods? Maybe yzf600r, thundercat ect? :)

In a word NO. mfor some reason the FZR is a"bastard" rig as far as pegs the rider pegs are aweird distance on bolt centers as are the passenger peg loops (Fugging ugly bit of tube)
It has been rumoured that 1 model of FZR400 actually bolt up straight in the loop bolts mounting holes but I have yet to find out which it is as the sets I found do not even come close.
