Pics of my Moto GP restyled Fireblade

G'day all,

Well, I've finally finished my bike (a '95 900RR Fireblade frame and motor). Some of you here may have seen it when it was in Detroit, but after I brought it to Australia, I decided to go full-on with a restyle and upgrade.

Some of the new mods:

2002 CBR954 upside down forks
2001 RC51 SP1 front wheel
Braking 330mm wave rotors
Carbone Lorraine SBK5 pads
BST Carbon Fiber front fender
1995 VFR 750 single sided swingarm (hidden brake line)
2000 VFR800 rear wheel
2004 Suzuki Gixxer 1000 tail section
Removed and filled centre position light and fairing holes
2003 Camel Moto GP race graphics (all clearcoated in)
DuPont Hot Hues 'Lemon Glow' paint - painted by me (first ever 2 pack paint job)
Pazzo levers
45T 520 rear sprocket
CBR600 F4i digital gauges, teardrop mirrors, Moriwaki rearsets, Oxford small turn signals and Galfer rear wave rotor (all yet to be installed).
And the previous mods included the full Formula Xtreme motor build incl. Cosworth 2mm overbore pistons (945cc), Keihin 39mm flatslides, Titanium rods, Erion cams, Ferrea stainless o/s valves, head and crank work, and undercut gears.

I'll get some better pics soon. These are the 'just completed' garage pics....

Re: Pics of my Moto GP restyled Fireblade

I'm gonna go ahead and say it but I don't mean any disrespect to any other 900rr owners. but that is the best looking 900 I've seen. All the work looks really good. and ditching what was my least favorite part of the bike, the tail and replacing it with that gixxer rear really set it apart.

how much power that thing putting down?

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: Pics of my Moto GP restyled Fireblade

Thanks guys!! I'm glad that you approve.

At the last dyno pull it did in October 2005, it put down 153.6 at the wheel. With the -1/+2 520 sprocket combo, I can't actually keep the front wheel down in second gear at WOT.

Very well done.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Re: Pics of my Moto GP restyled Fireblade

Very nice. How do you like the wave rotors? I've been thinking of getting those for my 929.

Re: Pics of my Moto GP restyled Fireblade

Very nice job. Definately one of the nicest 900RR I have seen. Does the VFR swingarm bolt directly up to the 900 frame? Or did you have to make shims and spacers and such to make it fit? Again, very nice 900RR.

Thanks for all the nice compliments everyone! It's a good feeling to know that you all approve.

Re the 94-97 VFR 750 swingarm, it is almost a direct bolt up job. You do need a 25mm OD x 20mm ID x 20mm length spacer on the right side (can buy one from McMaster Carr for $5), and you need a 1mm thick, flat washer with a 20mm ID on the sprocket side to align the shock mount. Other than that, no problems with the fitment. You do need a longer chain (112 link) and if you want to conceal the brake line in the arm as I did, you'll also need a longer brake line (about 1.05 metres).

The one other thing that people do with the 750 arm is use the VFR800 wheel (as I did). This is b/c the 800 wheel is 5.5" wide (5" for the 750 wheel) so you can run a 180 series tire. But you do need to notch out the wheel mounting face to clear the exposed bolts on the hub. Easy job though - you just use an angle grinder.

OTOH, the VFR800 arm is not compatible with the 900RR unless you do some serious machining of the frame and the arm. That would have been too much work for me.

Cheers!
Sime

So far, I love them. However, as I just finished the bike and the rotors/pads are still being bedded in, I haven't pushed the bike yet. But they seem to have great initial bite and they display none of the noise that I have heard others talk about. That may have something to do with the pads I am using.

And they look the business too!
