ZZR 400/750 Hybrid

Post by thunderace » Sat Feb 16, 2013 2:26 pm

750cc ZZR anyone? Just picked up a 400 rolling chassis for £50 with V5 :mrgreen: Perfect for my spare GPX motor ;) Won't be starting it just yet, need to get the GPX done first but I'll be doing a full build thread when the time comes :peace:

Just picked this one up. Will probably end up breaking it. On the look out for a twin (xs400,gpz500,gs500) to put in a buggy. ;)

First dibs on the front discs, calipers and spindle then :mrgreen:

Or I may just take whatever's left after you've raped it :peace:

Actually, I may be able to get my hands on an NTV650 Vee-Twin engine if you'd consider one of those in part-ex for the bike?

Edit: I may be able to get a GPZ500S engine next week as well.....

Ahh a V-twin is the wrong shape for me.. I have a Honda Bros400 here. The gpz5 might be a goer, but I'm looking for a complete bike to avoid having to buy lots of parts off a robbing breaker...oh hang on :grin: :grin: A quality s/h parts reseller :grin: I'm a long way from you too!!

Ordinarily it doesn't, the ZZR being a stressed member engine and the GPX having a full cradle. However, I have the engine and the rolling chassis has cost less than a DID chain so I'll make it fit :twisted:

It's a tight fit but it's in. Just need to get the front engine mounts fabricated then I can shuffle the engine about and measure up the rears :peace:
