So I bought a Crashed GIxer 1000 k2 about 7000km on the clock the usual damage, but the frame was tweaked at the head stock so the bike was writen off by the previous owners insurance company I bought the whole thing for $1200.00 about 580 quid, the bike was running on the key…
I decided I needed a bike to stick the engine in to, MY mate who owns a bike breakers, had a 1998 Gixer 750 with a blown motor, he sold it to me for $500 Canadian 200 quid, the motors are very simalar, but it wasnt a straight forward the only mount that remotely fit was the rear bottom, but even then I had to grind 1/4 inch off each side of the engine for it to fit, the top rear mount had to me removed from the frame compleatly and a new one fabbed and tigged on, the front each side needed adapter plates , there was no play at all and the motor had to be pulled in to the frame with tie down straps. tight as a NUNS WHO HAR.
everything else bolted up fine.
Im still thinking of using the 1000 swinging arm becouse the 98 750 swinging arm is three inches shorter, and as it is, it caught me unaware and I did a rollon wheelie in 3rd, that had my arse pucker up…but sure made me grin like a complete ******.
other than that, it has a tre mod, a yoshie tri oval, that im gonna cut down, and new oil cooler on the forks, KN filter,
Im not running any ram air and dont see the diferance as yet in performance or lack of it.
Ducati All Aluminum front fender, the SRAD tank needed to K2 petrol pump mount welded in to it. sub frame made up out of the srad, and k2, and cut down. Aluminum Ducati monster rear tail, gixer k2 seat cut down and re-upolstered, stearing dampener couse it needs one. the handle bar risers were off a YAM virago, that worked out great becouse it leaves room to adjust the front suspension.
thats about it.
