Custom 08 tail build for 929rr

Work in progress... figured ide post up what im doin




1000rr tail
Shave seat pad
Some Subframe modification
Home made seat wrap
600rr seat cowl
Home made 1/8" aluminum undertail powder coated black
Home made plate and signal braket
Custom Signals

anyway.... im already feeling mod fever for NEXT winter haha...

so i decided to start putting stuff together to do a 08+ tail and custom set up, and once winter comes hopefully i have it close to done, and can just swap out the subframe back on my current set up and put the new one on...

the over all plan is to make a integrated chaser tail light, with 90k mcd leds. Since i will not need rear signals i will make a COMPLETELY smooth undertail pan (similar to the taylormade undertail, out of plexiglass (1 piece rather than 2), and either night shade it black and mount the plate on the back side. It will only be able to be seen, if i turn on the bike as it will have bright plate lights, or I may just paint the plexi black and neglect to paint the area where i plan on mounting the plate. I will also possibly be modifying the actual tail itself, we will have to see on that one...

while im building a 1 off subframe to accommodate this project, and its going on a 929, i figured ide still post it up as the modifications im doing for the tail/tail light/undertail and so on, still relate to the RR...

I got a few guys nice enough to donate a few parts to get me started...

Digg from here donated me a 08 stock tail light, as well as a undertail (not sure if ill need the undertail or not)

and NWBackwoods from here donated a stock 08 tail...

so let the process begin, first the plan is to make a "scanner" integrated led tail light like the knight rider mod alot of the 600rr guys do....

so before


after a little dremmel time



what this allowed me to do is remove all the stock led boards, and chips...

this is where i am now on the project.... plan on making a custom integrated led board in the next week or so.... so ill keep you updated

I would also like to give credit to 2 rr.net members, seeing their undertails is what gave me entire idea of going with a 08 1k tail, as well as the general design of the tail light and undertail.... mine however will be a totally different final product...

Re: Custom 08 tail build for 929rr

yesterday received the tail that was kindly donated to me




made up a template to base the rest of the undertail on





putting it all together... kinda lol

baby girl felt as though she needed to be included




still working out the kinks on my custom tail light board, so hopefully you will see something on that soon

i decided im going to go ahead and get some plexi, cut it to match the template, then silicone it to the tail, and then tape everything off and make the bottom completely smooth with no lines by filling the extra gap with fiberglass resin


im going to spray the entire tail black, and nightshade the tail light, and possibly silicone around the lenses to make it look completely flush, itll be SO smooth you wont be able to tell i got a tail light till i turn the bike on

with all that said itll look pretty much exactly like a race tail when im done, but with a functional custom integrated tail light ill make sure to post up haha..

plan for the plate mount is either to mount it flush to the 45 degree part of the tail and use a carbon fiber plate frame, with some of my custom led plate light work

or if it that area isnt big enough to buy one of these brackets used on the prior RR's and mount it in the same area
