PM DonnieJ, I recall him talking about this.
I have 2004 GSXR600 tail plastics, I don't think they'll fit on the SV's subframe. I know at minimum you need to cut the grab rails off the lower struts to even be able to get it to slide. I have a feeling that the rear of the subframe is still going to be too wide. This is with the 2004 tail which is 1 piece, if yours is 2 piece this should make it much easier...

Hi...
I know..the 2004 won't fit!
But i saw a few guys having the 2001 (as i know in 2001 the 600,750 and 1000 tails were all the same) tail sitting on the stock subframe!
Here is an image:

In my opinion this really looks awesome!

:roll: It might not fit now... but neither did the 1972 Kawi H2 tail when I started :twisted:

I'd be a little surprised if you didn't have to move something around; ie. rectifier or brake reservoir... Neither is too difficult to re-locate...

:?: I don't understand what you mean ..... :idea:

Anyway... if no one can give me any tips i have to order the race-tail from sebimoto and try it ......the reason why i want it to fit on the stock frame is the TÜV :evil: In Germany it's not so easy to get your Ideas on the street if you know what i mean...... :wink:

I meant that in every sentence you ended them with!
It's OK, I was just picking on you! :D

I didn't realize that in Germany you can't modify the subframe. What I would do in your situation is order a race tail made of fiberglass. Fiberglass is easy to work with and you can attach your own mounts to it using expoxy resin. Airtech sells them...

Please let us know how you make out. Many others have asked about this too. Thank you.

I think there's no other way then :wink:
I hope i'll get it as snug and sexy as that guy! I'll order the race tail from sebimoto. It's made of fiberglass and you can get it without any drilled holes. I'll report any progress as soon as i get the tail! :twisted:

Thanks and nice talking donniej

GSXR tail

if you are putting it on a race bike, just cut the front points(ear) a bit and I think the seat pan has to be trimed a bit but it bacially bolts right up. Some people have made brackets for the rear top with a zus fastener but if you cut the seat pan right the seat will sit on top of the tail so when you are sitting on the bike the tail is secure. The gsxr tail is wider so I cut spacers where the tail mounts to the subframe maybe 1-2 inches or so.
