Default >>>> 1996 cbr 900 subframe upgrade <<<<

people Im looking to change the tail on my 96 CBR 900 to a more up to date look like a 04 or something. Anything but that box looking tail it came with. Can any one tell me how to go about doing this.
I read some where that this guy swaped out the subframe with a 04 GSXR subframe and got a nice look when it was all done. I want to know what other subframes will fit my 06 frame.
Ill post some pic when I get a chance!

I don't think anything is a direct swap. I have seen some custom jobs that make new subframes, some that use their stock one - but it needs to be modified, and some that eliminate it all together. Check out a bunch of CBR/Fireblade forums and search for the tail conversion/swap. There should be a ton of information out there.

It won't be possible without some custom work though either way.

Default tail swap

I swapped the fairing from an 02 gsxr 1000 onto my 97 900rr.It was pretty simple and I like the way it looks.I'm not done modifying the front seat yet,I wanted to wait until I got the undertail just to make sure everything was going to be good

Hi, I agree, that looks great :-)

Can I ask, what was involved in that build? any subframe cutting? Did you use the seats from the gsxr?

I am interested in doing this to my new (well, new to me!) 900 RRT (96) also, so maybe I will start a thread too :-)

Prowla, care to swap ideas / photos as we go along? :-)
