          so this week made some progress, made the oil dump tube (.625" o.d./.560" i.d hot rolled tubing) Forming it sucked with a propane torch, but the end result was pretty good with minimal flat spots and no kinks. i think if i were to of packed the tube with sand i would have gotten a perfect mandrel, but im happy with it. its more than enough dia.





          i had the flange cut at work on the laser

          yesterday and today i painstakenly made the charge pipe. when you have two ports at different angles, different heights, and different diameters, and about a 4'' window of room shthings become a headache, but i managed to make it work even making a port on the pipe for the blow off valve...its super tight, everything has to slide in a certain way, and couplers need to go on in a certain sequense....not looking forward having to take it off again.....and again.







          and a couple fitment teasers








          im gonna hammer out on the swingarm this weekend, i made a awsome looking rear brake arm, but not gonna post it until the swingarm is done. wanna beable to take the swingarm to work on monday and shot blast it and have it powder coated in two weeks.......stay tuned

          I dont know if you knew this but I bought a kawi zx14 in the beginning of october. you and i are gonna have to race in the spring~!!!

            Being that what he is building is a pre I would assume it would work for a pre.

              Im pretty sure his question was geared more towards 'is it plug-and-play', which I would assume was a no, but KNIFE may get on and respond later.

                  ya sorry i was unclear but i was asking if it was a direct bolt up. doesnt look like it would take much to make it fit

                      this thread isnt about tail swaps, no tail swap is a bolt on, the easiest one ive swapped before on a pre was putting the tail from a 98-02 SV650/1000 on it
