    GSXR Tail swap

    I want to put an 01 GSXR 1000 rear tail section on my TLR. Is it better to use TLR sub frame, or GSXR sub frame. I know both have to be modified, but which one is easier to adapt.??.

    I think, but don't quote me on this. I read that no matter which subframe you used, you have to modify both. This topic should be in the TL mods section.
    So many bikes, So many decisions.

    you can put the gsxr subframe on but it 'is a proper nut cracker' i think that is a tm from someone else on the board, search gsxr tail.

    I merried a TL subframe to a GSXR subframe for a guy. Just cut the two in half and weld them together. Pretty straight forward. It would not be hard to make the mounts, but the guy had both subframes, so we went this route.

    Hey!
    I'm the one with the "NutCracker"! Will post pics as soon as I get home from work and hopefully they'll help you decide which route you want to take!

    Great pics, I had a similar Idea. I was going to cut off the frame mounts from the TLR sub frame and weld them on the GSXR subframe. I have one question, where do you locate the trunk lock, Oh and which under tail do u use. TLR or GXSR.

    Undertail.....which was really cool and I wish I had this set up on my bike.



    Trunk latch was in the normal GSXR position. It used a TL seat that had the corners shaved off and some new fabric applied.
