MrZ and his Franken-Julia

Yeah, as some of you remember, i crashed Julia last January
I was looking for another like mine but i got fed up with the ads. Prices went up!! People were asking 2k more for a worst condition bike than mine, 2 years after i bought mine!!!! I couldn't believe that!!! Anyway, decided to fix her up to my liking. After all, i'm not planning on an upgrade.

Complete tear down,
Frame good as new and reinstalled.
Sent front forks, rear suspension and stock ohlins steering damper to get some maintenance. Complete service kits.



Installing some parts while waiting for other to arrive in mail..



Installed subframe etc
Got an OEM 2013 undertail, going for the 2013 look zx6r
Also got my forks back from service.

The 2013 headlight uses two H7 bulbs while my harness has an H9 and an H11 connector. I don't like cutting the OEM wiring harness and couldn't source any H11/H9 to H7 converters so i made my own.

The victim


Dremmel time!



Leftovers (managed to drop and brake both of them!! lol)


Bought the OEM connectors for the 2013 headlight from the stealership, removed the connectors to the wiring harness and...




Filled them up with black silicon later,

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "

Received my Auctmarts fairings


Auctmarts windscreen


Auctmarts bolt set (used many of them, but even though the box was bike specific, most had no place to go)


Fairing kit (except from tail side fairings that got lost somewhere on the way...)




Clear smoked front side indicators

Received headlight and red tint....I won't say "headlight" tint....Because even though it looks bad ass....It shines red...I had purple headlight tint on my old bike and it shined white.Anyway...













Used some alloy mess at the ram air.Had completely forgotten about it.I thought it would be deep/not visible so i didn't paint it. Anyway....

Yea....so....i need a new water tank...the old one does not fit...


Also, some other guy in here said that he mounted the rectifier at that place, just over the radiator.This isn't possible.


I had to make a braket.






Wires, wires,wires....

Received my new front wheel.
Had both of them powdercoated candy red


And fitted some new BT16






Chinese intergated taillight fitted(not recommended, turn signals barely visible, if you are on the brakes not visible for sure)
Also, since the connector to the bikes' harness is different,i removed the taillights' connector and got the wires in the bikes' connector.Then i wrapped them up with electrical tape.

Received my 2013+ water tank


Holes on radiator do not line up and....i'm not proud of this but i haven't bolted it...The way it's made, it can't move or go anywhere, unless the side fairing is removed anyway.


Some fabbing to install the rear seat lock

Coming along...




I like the way the rear brake fluid res was on the '09 so in order to keep it that way...




How on earth did this get a hole like this?!!It's the front brake fluid res to MC hose.

Those wheels are the tits! Very nicely done overall!

So, just to be clear...are the 2013-2016 fairings and undertank side fairings a direct bolt-on to a 2009-2012 bike? Your bike is a 2010, right?

2007 ZZR600 (sold)
2006 CBR600 (sold)
2010 1198 (parted out across North America)
2013 CBR500R (race bike)
2009 ZX6R (race bike)
2015 R3 (project bike and future race bike)

Direct...You need some mounting brackets, headlight, taillight, turn signals, ram air, gauge bracket etc...etc...
I think i have the list of parts i had to order from the dealership somewhere.I can post it.There is also another thread around the forums about 09-12 to 13-16 fairing convertion.
But other than that, yes they fit.My bike is a 09-12 yes.
