I purchased from a friend in 2011 and it was a deal I could not say no to. I convinced the wifethat it was a deal that would not come around again, she said ok since she knew I was going crazy bikeless since I had sold my 2003zx6rr back in '09.
It came with Ohlins rear shock and front end set up for my buddy who weighs about 70 lbs less than me. I was at 228 when I got the bike at 6'4".
It Lso had custom quick release seat pins, sp-2 rear subframe and steel braided front lines.
Also had Moriwaki rearsets pair valve delet with flapper mod.
It has a carbon rear hugger, not sure what brand though.
It also had high mid mount Sato exhaust along with a box of extra parts and an extra tail section that was rashed up from a wreck. Chasis had over 100k miles on it and is on the 3rd engine with about 35k on current engine
all this for $2500.
This is how I got the bike.

Looks pretty good. Any particular reason for the blue paint scheme?

Also, what did you use for the undertail, or is that part of the track kit?

That paint was how it came from the member on here I got it from. I actually had to paint the lower where the white is as when I got it was silver. I thnik it looks good as it is patriotic.

As for the undertail I went and got some plastic from a place called Tap plastics and then beveled around the edge so it would sit a little more flush and then drilled holes to mount. Simple but time consuming to get it to fit good. Alot of on and off.

Very nice. Just fitted my race fairings. Looking for a cheap solution for the rear until I can do a modified subframe...and yours looks good.

Keep up the great work.
