    Hey all, Thought I would post a couple of pics before a take the grinder to my old girl. I plan to remove the entire rear end behind the b-pillar (oil cooler). I have designed new trailing arms and new front hubs and will be installing the Quaiffe Rear diff with reverse.

    Can't wait for the 139KW power the ZX12R puts on the wheels, hey the old motor was a VF750F that blew up twice!!! it had 52 KW at the crank .

    So, the bends and plates have arrived, I will post more pics as the build progresses. Tomorrow I hope to remove everything from the frame and then the cutting begins.

    Awesome.

    Very nice,the new uprights look really well thought out.

    Double the KW and less weight is always good!

    Any pics of where you ride/race on here?

    thanks Bullnerd,

    Yeah, I am not sure how to attach the pics to my profile. I will post a few on this link, but if you know how to put them on your profile in an album, please let me know. Shot.

    The new design probably took me 2 months of about 4 hours every night to complete. Let's just hope it all clicks together as it is supposed to!!

    Here are a couple of pics of the new rear section on the work bench. I decided to fabricate the rear and then weld it to the frame. I have attached a pic of a weld mitre, seems ok. I have the rear diff plates installed and will do fronts this week. Awesome
