After 5 months...it is finally done. This site helped a ton.

Wrench with the swingarm and header posts.
Jason Clay's 560 how to
pefrey's r1 fork thread

I also had a lot of local help as well, beer and wings on me after the may race weekend.

I don't think I've done anything original, but I feel like I have a heck of a race machine. Here is the list of parts:
fzr400 frame
yzf based 560 superbike motor, lots of work to the head and cylinders
yzf600r 36 mm carbs
fzr600 airbox (modded to fit yzf carbs)
yzf600r tank
r6 header with slip on
home made aluminum subframe, custom dogbones, custom upper shock mount
penske shock
gsxr750 rearend
r7 tail/r1 upper and lower
michelin slicks

My baby.....

1995 FZR-600 Sure there are newer & faster bikes out there. But she's mine & I'm willing and able to touch any bolt or nut on her as needed !!!! Except changing the rear tire. I let the pros do that (balancing, you know.) I did just bring them the rim and a new tire though!!!

Great bike man! I bet you kick ass on it.

If my TZ body work is too much of a pain in the ass to fit my hybrid, I might hit you up for some tips on the the body work you used and do the same.

Hey can I steal your 'R4'? Gota stencil or font for that?

I am using the Front end off the R-1 what did you use?

Just curious about the GSXR swinger swap. Whas that a total pain or prety easy to do.

Hey guys, thanks for the compliments! Yes, the dog is a bit scared as loud noises still get him jumpy.

china steve,

forks are 98 r1...i like the fact that they have 135 mm of travel. most other forks i looked at were about 125mm.

gsxr swingarm was easy to fit, just lop a little off of each side. It was everything else that was tricky. meaning upper shock mount, chain clearance from the frame, sprocket alignment, tire alignment. Wrench has a great write up that helped alot.

you can steal the r4 sticker. i bought it from tapeworks graphics.

Thanks Man,

I got a 03 R-1 going on mine. Bot I put a 3Jt Swinger on mine.

I got a second bike that need a swap so maybe I will go the GSKR route with that bike.

Good luck on the track.

I'd like to know how it handles with the GSXR swinger as it is about 1"-1.5" longer than the FZR.

I ride with NESBA too, but I'm on the East Cost so I probably won't see you at too many events.

I am curious to see how it handles too.

My measurements from last years stock 400 chassis to this years modded one shows an increase of 7/16 of an inch on wheelbase. I will be running a way more aggressive tire profile and a bit more rear ride height this year as well.

Where I race, handling is important. So I cannot stress how curious I am as to the handling. Turn 1 is taken flat out 6th gear as fast as you can go. Turn 2 is the one most folks are scared of, top of 5th but sharper than T1.

Here is a link to the track......http://www.brainerdraceway.com/road/layout.html

Alright....here is an update.

The bike handles really, really well. Better than expected with only 2 race weekends on it. I have actually ended up running a 180 michelin superbike slick on the back and a 120 slick on the front. It is very quick steering with gobs of feel. I think the profile of the tires has a lot to do with this.

Ironically, due to the increase in wheelbase, it is also very stable mid corner....not twitchy over bumps.

The downside, due to the rearward bias of weight with the longer swingarm, the front end gets light in the fast stuff. I am getting quite a bit of headshake in 2 of the faster turns of the track (turn 1 = 140 mph entry speed, turn 2 = 125mph entry speed). Next race weekend, we will be dropping the front a little and raising the rear to get more weight over the front.

Results so far
May weekend
1st in vintage (20 years or older, run what you brung)
1st in sportsman(bikes 1997 and older, cbr600f2, FZR600, pre1995 zx6, 125 2stroke, etc)
4th in Lightweight Superbike (SV's, Duc 904, Buell 1200's, FZR400)
4th in Lightweight GP (same as above plus 250 two stroke)

June weekend
1st in vintage
1st in the Team Challenge Endurance Lightweight (80 minutes)

3rd in Lightweight Superbike
3rd in Lightweight GP
