I'm not too knowledgeable about bikes but i know that a GXSR1000 is "just" a liter motor tossed in a 600 frame, along with suspension and tire bits
I'm sure but i dont know if that is the same way at Yamaha or not. Good luck with that, sounds like that will be a badass bike when your all
finished. Just curious what are your trap speeds at the track, sure sounds like the altitude is killing your ETs.
So I have determined that it is not pratical, or easily possibly, to "shoehorn" a R1 motor into the thundercat. I will get some sort of literbike
as my next bike, but it will probably be a while as I am a somewhat safe rider, and I have another 20K miles left on the yzf.
Like the previous poster said, not safe at all. And by the time you got the motor in there and working, you probably could have just bought the liter
bike for the same $$
It takes a sharp eye to tell the difference between the two just by looking at the swingarm ,wheels ect. Why not just put the body of a 600 on the
1000 if you want a sleeper? On some makes you could probably get away with just the stickers as they're very close in size and shape.
