i want to replace the tail section with ducati monster

Recommended Posts

i am about waist deep into a naked conversion. i could stop here and be moderately happy with it, but i thought of putting a monster tail on here. the thought wont quit nagging at me until i check into it further. 

here's what the bike looks like right now.

has anyone swapped a monster tail onto a vfr800? i have seen tons of hawk gt riders do this mod, and the frames look pretty similar. i guess i need to know some measurements of the subframe mounts, and to know what all i'm getting into, before i get into it. 

 

also, the gauge is an acewell, if anyone's wondering. i may or may not convert to an sv radiator as well... that's down the line though, maybe. the temps are good right now. i have a radiator cap thermometer, and it stays in the low end of the yellow once it has warmed up.

Monster seat, home made subframe, sv 650 radiator, complete cbr929 front.20171123_081359.thumb.jpg.1ae9ea38b0f2ed867388f817780e17d3.jpg

Just enough room to fit standard size battery, ecm, fuses, etc, wrapped in fake carbon.

Had to cut some tabs and pieces off seat.

That looks great, halfrider! Did you make that subframe? Would you sell one? How much would you charge? .... I'd kinda like to buy one off you lol

 

Did you ever get the gauges situated? I got fed up with my Chinese Grom gauges, and my mechanic guy was having no luck either. I went with the acewell unit, and it's pretty good. Waiting on a different mount that will put it in front of the key. 

 

How did you go about mounting the sv rad? I'm using a thermometer built into a radiator cap, so I wouldn't need any fancy digital temp sensor deals.

Thanks for the kind words.

Once you have a monster seat and a tail light, the sub frame is just 4 bent tubes ,2 angles and a base.

Here's some pics to help.

Base with battery box.

Base riveted to sub frame.

 

I'll put up some pic's I'm sure a local could fab it together for you.

 

S.V radiator is a lot easier to fit.

 

Search zerfarton here, he modded an existing vfr sub frame to suit monster seat.

I have been wondering if a VFR800X crossrunner subframe would fit onto a 5th gen?
