..... FlyCather, Yes, the motor, tank, frame.

..... Shadow, I have had my FJ for about 8 years now, I love the feel and power. But, I really like the look of the R1.
...The Plans,... I can honesty say, I am done with all the mods,

rebuilt motor-1189cc to 1349cc big bore kit with XJR1250 rods, cams, vavles, trans. under-cut, Mikuni 38mm F/S's, K/N filter's, V/H's header, Dyna2000 ign. Accel coils and wires, Penski rear shock, Thaxxtron fork springs,Trail tech Guages, oil filter adapter.
.... The stock FJ has a weak wiring harness. So, What I did is, change the FZ1 turn signal switch into the headlight switch. the power going to the switch is coming directly from the battery.
The leftside is now the low beam...neutral is...OFF, the rightside is now high beam. [with a relay]
.. the high beam switch is now the switch for the fan that is on top of the motor.[relay]
.. I replaced the stock horn with a Beep Beep roadrunner horn.[with a relay]
.. I installed R1 frame sliders and the..... shifter is adjustable.
.. I think that's it !!
