Yamaha FZRR6 special

Driving The FZR600 for a while the thing really had an ache to modify itself. And taking Juul with it a couple of times. Of course this is no fun at all, something needed to be done about that. Since it is a ride from the early nineties, things are a bit dated and old on this Yamaha. So Why not try and alter it with newer parts from the Yamaha R6 from this millenium?

Besides parts as front fork, rear swing, brakes, wheels etcetera also some engine work could be done. Just to give it a nice boost. After heavy homework Juul came up with the plan to place a Yamaha Thundercat 600cc cilinder and pistons. This would give the engine 60cc more, which is a 10% gain. This adds up to the power but also the torque!

This was going to be be a one of a kind ride. But still with the original fairing, to suprise others. And it sure looks good on the bike. Place it besides a standard FZR600 and the differences are huge. In the end the bike rides like nothing else as well, mission accomplished!
