Thanks!

Any suggestions on what I should do about a seat? Should I cut off the hinge tabs, if I do how do I keep the seat in place? Should I find a donor seat and cut the back half off and re-foam and cover it?
I tried to make a pan out of sheet metal, but my dimensions were all screwy, and it just looked weird.

Did some more work. Been busy with life crashing around me, and moving, all that fun stuff.

Made a crappy seat






You can also see that I've relocated the side kickstand further up the frame, for rearset clearance.

And got the block bored, pistons installed.


Just working on getting the head and cams squared away, then it can get dropped back in! So close I can smell it!

Should I replace my BS34's with some Lectron 40's? Bit 'spensive, but I heard they're worth every penny.

Will a custom exhaust system be needed to accommodate the rearsets?

I'll have to wait until I drop the motor in to know for sure,i might have to change out the muffler, just use the same collector. Looks like it might be a bit low mocked up.


Also picked up a FZ6 last night as a daily rider.

Just providing an update on this thread. 
It's *finally* all put back together and running again. Just some fine tuning left, and needs new tires.
