Hey Nics, are you in Minneapolis? I'm just over the border, a little past Hudson Wi. If so, we need to hook up and compare notes.I am building my second tail, this time on my 01 r6. I too did not care for the looks of anything I could purchase, and am building a M1 style tail. My tail has roughly the same look as yours.

At one time, I actually lived in Blaine with my brother (for a short while). My I am trying to get a couple photos of my current build on here (if you dn't mind me posting them in yur build). I'm not real tech savvy, so it takes me a little while to figure this crap out.

What's up everyone sorry it's been awhile since I've updated but I just got the subframe angles figured out and it's welded together. thinking about what type of exhaust to do. He thinks we can fab something up to go where a new ducati 1199 exhaust would go under the rear shock but here ya go here's some pictures

Sorry for not updating about the bike. Im going to be flooding this topic over the next couple days with pics and info about the build. So here ya go i had the subframe mad amd added spray foam in hopes to shape it into a plug but the prosess and way it was looking was not what i wanted so i started from scratch and cut the subframe off again. The reason i did this was i bought a fiberglass tail that people probably wouldn't think of buying fo4 a 99r1. I looked at numerous different tails for different bikes and the winner was....


A profiber race tail for a 2015 cbr 1000rr. So waited a week and 5 days for it to show up and it finaly arrived at my door step. I brought it to the shop and moched it up. Welded the beginning of the subframe and made the front mount. I thenmade a template for the insideto locate where other two mounts wen and youll see it clekoed to the bike i then made the other two mounts for mid and rear made a custom battery box out of sheet aluminum on solidworks wich i cut out with a computerized plasma cutter then bent to shape then Dennis welded the bottom to the sides and we the put all of the mounting tabs in place and mounted electronics these are the pics i have so far ill have more tomorrow or the next day still havea few parts to cut out but im always accepting constructive criticism so feel free to chime in

More of the completed battery box tail still needs to be fastened and need to make side covers. Also put dan moto rear sets and exhaust wich IMO sounds better than my buddys akro on the same bike also some welds need to be smoothed
