FZ750 engine frame swap question

Postby britx303 » Sun Dec 04, 2016 10:25 am

Potentially building a FZ750 racebike,and wondered about different frames.This is just a sh*ts and giggles project before everyone gets all serious......i save the serious part for when the visour flips :mrgreen: Anyhow,I have a 600 frame I was thinking to use,and since I have tons of suspension parts from other racebikes over the last few years, just toying with the idea of a FZ750 engine next. Making new cradles is no big deal.....just wondering about the rear mounting. Also,I "thought" ive read that the FZ cylinders are slanted more forward and pose a problem,but I dont know where I read that or if im remembering something wrong screwy

The crankcases are externally almost identical to the later FZR thou non EXUP jobs, won't fit in the 600 frame without wholesale butchery and fabrication.

Hey dude no replies on this in 6 months... how is this project going? For what it is worth you would have been MUCH better off picking up an FZ750, and mod the 750 motor as it is fairly easily to mod it for more power... or swap in a Genesis or EXUP 1000 motor in. That is what I am doing, including the entire harness and EXUP valve. motor is swap-out swap in... with FZR1000 front and rear swingarm (which does take some work), you would have a rippin' classic trackbike for not much more weight than an old FZ600 frame.

Didnt go anywhere with it.......finally decided on doing a 660 build for one of the other racebikes. Still want to eventually run a 750.......especially at Daytona. THAT should be FUN!!!!
