  • FZR400 3TJ slooow build

    Well this is my ' get banned and keep sane ' project . First things first, she's a last generation FZR400 (but not the SP ), that i picked up cheap enough, but not running. I always loved these when they came out, and i was riding a AR50 dreaming of bigger things ! Most parts seem to be there, and in a fairly average condition. Motor doesn't fire and everything seems to point to the soft from factory inlet valves. Plan's are to clean up, paint anything that will look better painted and replace what needs replacing really, and i really want to fit a YZF600 thundercat engine, and maybe a R6 shock, oh yeah and better adjustable forks and and well you get the picture. Got any parts ? got any ideas ? got any input ? let me know^_^

        Great place to start..... Yeh, pity about the inlet valves on this generation of Fizzer. We used to sponsor a couple of fella's on FZR 600's that proddy raced and, while they both did it, you could set one up at .25mm clearance on the inlet valves and it would have 0 ( or there abouts )after 5 races. This was a lot better on the 'Cat which was ( and still is ) a great little bike all round. Got plenty of 7.48mm shims if you want to to do your clearances and need to exchange some.

          Seen these with the fzr600 and cbr918 motor. You have to think about the fireblade swap I posted a thread on it a few months ago, will find it tommorow.

            Thanks Satan1, yeah heard rumours myself. I read of a guy in the UK that put a bored out CBR600 ( 720 ) into one so head is spinning with ideas. Fzr1000ru could be made to fit also but the weight would start to be a problem.

                      If you're going to chop it around that much, it'd be easier to get an R6, wouldn't it?

                        Why does someone always mention this sort of crap everytime someone wants to fuck around with their bike??

                        Maybe he will get a bit of enjoyment by the whole process? If all anyone ever did was just buy whatevers available, it'd be a pretty boring community. I love seeing projects like this take shape.

                          I like the sound of having a 1:1 hp/weight ratio with 150 neddies ^_^

                          And it's worth doing because you can.

                          Edit: sorry 2wheels didn't realize the pb link was outdated. But the march 09 issue should be the one

                              I agree with Wigarus - good to see more people going out there and doing stuff out of the ordinary. Would be pretty boring if everyone just bought stock machines...I for one would like to see how awesome this will turn out...


                              (1:1 power to weight sounds mighty fun )
