Re: 929 tail on a 900?

Are you sure the light mounts directly to the tail? Or is there some sort of bracket needed? I bought a tail light, but it looks like I need another piece. I was going to try and make one. But If I could buy a bracket, I will.

I don't know what tail he got (929?), I know you got a 929 tail. the tail light mounts to the tail if you're using the 929 tail light.

Re: 929 tail on a 900?

I havent worked out the seat latch yet, I am thinking of welding a piece of aluminum plate on top of the rear cross member and drilling holes in it to mount the original seat latch. Maybe hook an old choke cable to the locking arm and route it under the seat somewhere for a trick trunk opener.

Re: 929 tail on a 900?

hi there !!donīt drill the frame... first cut a piece of the same matiriel of the subframe. then center the seat and put the piece under the seat and drill the holes on the piece of the same matirial of the subframe for the bolts to holde the seat a then welld the piece to the subframe. this way you will not have to drill and drill the frame time after time and the frame is going to get weak.and then if the tail doesnīt fit with the seat fill around the seat with fiber glass... i did that with a bike o f a friend. cbr600 with 929 tail.hope i could help once again

Re: 929 tail on a 900?

Well, I have got my 929 tail in the mail a couple of days ago. I Have trimmed my subframe and my inner fender to make it fit. It fits and looks pretty good. The bolt holes for the frankenstein bolts lined up perfect. I am still waiting on my new front seat in the mail. I am going to try an modify it to fit the subframe. I think bending and drilling holes in the subframe would weaken it. Doesn't look like it will be too dificult to modify the seat to fit anyway.

Evolution9, How did you modify your rear seat, hinge, and latch. I was thinking about just mounting the rear seat sollid, so it won't open. But if you got it to work let me know how you did it. Thanks

Re: 929 tail on a 900?

I've been looking to change out the rear of my 97RR for a 929 but the fact that the 929 seat wont fit the 900 subframe I quit persuing the idea. After messing around with a spare subframe I cut the tank mount off, bent the upper subframe rails inward 1/2"(both sides) between the frame mounts and the rear seat bracket and low and behold the front seat of a 929 fit perfect! I welded the tank mount back and drilled holes in the side of the subframe for the 929 seat and drank a beer. You will need spacers when you mount the subframe back on the bike = the width of how far the rails were bent ini. I'll post a picture when i get the rear cowl back from the painters.

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.

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?

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.
