A few months ago on the way back from Scotland I decided to crash my zx9r, luckily with copious amounts of tape I managed to ride it home the last couple hundred miles, so a rebuild has begun starting with a new frame as the bike landed heavily on the left and cracked half way along the main spar. I was going to strip the original frame and scotchbrite it so I’ve done the new frame and a zx10 c1h swingarm for it, I also dropped the forks and Öhlins shock off at revs suspension yesterday for a service and ktech valve kit.

Looks good is there much to modify or will it drop in easily? How'd you manage to bin it mate were you ok?
I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left

I bought the 10r arm with all the adaptors ready to bolt is so thought it would be an easy job as it came out of another 9r but my rear wheel is about 20 mm wider at the full spacer width and won’t go in the arm so rcd is going to fit his qr kit in it,I hit the rear of a farm trailer that was turning right into an entrance with no indicators working, screeed my leg and arm up a bit and wrenched my neck , I did a fantastic rolling stoppie, Pfm for the win as without them it would of been worse.

The frame and swingarm will stay bare and I’ll just acf50 it, I’ve bought some second hand oe bodywork to be painted in the original colours . Mark at rcd is going to weld some of his qr’s in the 10 arm and I’ve gotta send my front dymag to dymag for a small repair. Took a few weeks for my neck to recover as I don’t bounce as well as I used to, more like a big sack of spuds landing.

The bike was seriously high but I think it saved it from a lot of extra damage to the forks and wheel, there’s a small nick on the wheel but it would probably of been scrap otherwise.

You couldn’t afford my fee for a stunt show, rebuilds aren’t cheap 😭 I got the Penske shock off of a guy in Poland who bought it by mistake, he had it all serviced to put in his bike and found it was wrong.
