Using the FZR1000 engine, I thought it would be a good idea to stiffen the frame at the swing arm pivot area.
I made some cardboard templates and cut the frame reinforcements from rectangular box section steel.
Black paint in the pics was just to get a general look of the (crap) job.
After welded, everything will be sanded, prepped and painted matte black.
I'm crap at welding, please bear with me. This was done with stick welding, using 2,5mm rods.
I'm saving some euros to buy a good quality MIG welder. Easier to weld and nicer looking welds.
