I've bought an FZR400RR type 4DX / 1993 in order to make a nice alloy framed RD500 for track day runs.

In this page I will try to give news from my project.

Idea : make an U shaped front frame, front steering head plate and going around the spark plugs of the front cylinders.

Test 1 : PVC tube OD 22mm at point A

Test 2 : PVC tube OD 22mm at point B

This gives a better clearance for upper cooling hose.
