929 tail on a 900?

I have heard it is possible to fit 929 tail fairings on a 98-99 900 rr, even though the subframes look nothing alike. Has anyone heard of or know of anyone who has done this. My 900 is realy smashed up an I am looking for ways to make that tail look better since I have to buy a new tail anyway.

Re: 929 tail on a 900?

If there's a M/C wreckers around; see if they have a 929 tail that you can "rough fit" over the rear of your smashed up 900... You might need to steal the rear sub-frame and/or weld it to your stock one...

I can't say I've seen it done tho...

Re: 929 tail on a 900?

I thought about doing the same to my 900rr(that is the WORST aspect of the bike, IMHO). Did a lot of searching but couldn't really find much except for this. Dosen't really go into details of doing it but looks damn nice for a 900rr.

...guess anythings possible if you've got a lot of time and $$$.

Re: 929 tail on a 900?

if that rrzone site doesn't give you any ideas, I've seen a few blades here in the UK with 2002 R1 tail plastics with the LED working as well. The subframe is kept from the Blade however, it is modified if i'm not mistaken. Another option is if you're willing 2 spend a bit of coin, check out airtech, they make a NSR GP replica kit for the blade.. may not fit on your 98 model though

Re: 929 tail on a 900?

looks like there's some empty space between the bottom of the back edge of the seat and cowling under it but its kinda dark in the pic so I could be wrong.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: 929 tail on a 900?

does anyone know if the 929 seats will fit on the 900 subframe with the 929 tail? The 900 seat doesn't quite fit, looks kinda goofy.

Re: 929 tail on a 900?

I see what you mean about the goofy look... is there no way you can heat the plastic and mold it to fit the countours a bit better?? i'm not sure if the front seat fits, you might have to buy one or borrow one and try it out... i'm sure there's a 929 in your neck of the woods??

glad you found this out before me, i WAS going to do the 929 tail mod but I think i'll just stick with my original plan and make my own around my subframe...

Re: 929 tail on a 900?

I think I am going to do the swap and try to modify the 929 seat to fit. I don't have one yet so I am not sure how much work it will be but I will let you know how it turns out.
