But I want one of these badly:drool
.....and nine lives to go with it :bitchslap

Seen that kitten, LMAO !!

There's loads of GSXR engined smart cars on utube etc that look brilliant fun, but I have a TL engine or two in my collection that would sound much nicer !

err, I guess you've got a point:laugh The TL motor'd car would certain sound nice and the low-rpm pull of the TL motor would probably be quite nice in a heavy vehicle.

kickass...

i love the look of this bike, and i love the look of sullys bike as well...

i often wonder when im looking at the naked tls what it would look like with a little subframe modification... (if its actually possible to do)

could the subframe be modified to "follow" the seat better?

like where the red line is traveling?
(could this subframe mod also be used to lift the tail a little higher?)


(ph34r my 1337 MSPaint skillz....)

great bike :)

Ohhh... Who did that?

I know there's a member that manufactured a big ass bracket that mounted in the rotary damper mounts and stretched up to a platter where the subframe could be mounted. He cut away the lower tubes on the subframe.

Cannot remember the screen name of the member though... :banghead

EDIT: Is it yeller_twin?

GSXR750 Radial Forks

:yes I imported them from the states, much cheaper :laugh

Very similar to the GSXR1000 forks but the valving is a little better apparently.
