2002 R6 Build (Luna)

Figured I'm at the point where I should make a build thread. Picked up a parts blob 2002 R6 from a guy I'm going to school with.

Started life as this: guy was gonna make it into a show bike, so he chopped up the frame and all that fun stuff.

Re: 2002 R6 Build (Luna)

What's up with the sub frame? Looks like some custom work has been done to it, and 3rd gen tail put on.

Gonna be a gunmetal-ish color, and yeah, subframe is modded for the 06 tail

Hey man, looks good so far. Im thinking of swapping for an '06 tail on my 01 R6 as well. You got any pictures of the modded subframe? Was it hard?
You have to monkey around with the light wiring at all?

Re: 2002 R6 Build (Luna)

ok, update time. So some of the things changed, the guy I got it from bailed out on getting me parts and stuff. So I had to take over..

The custom subframe was abandoned, switched it out with a stock one

REALLY close to being done. Shooting for next weekend, assuming I have enough motivation to do it. Have another tank being painted to match, so that might not be ready by then. Will post detailed pics then.

Looks good! Are those auctmarts fairings? I heard the older ones might not fit as well as the newer ones. Apparently the new ones fit pretty good.
