See if the motor mounts and wiring harness hook up exactly. If not then ferget it.

Thats 3 model years on normally a two year cycle. Odds are slim but a quick glance at where the swingarm bolts up would give you a hint pretty quick. You may have better luck putting it in a sportster chassis.

Not if you have a welder and a hacksaw.

[quote=watt;192373]you are looking for generators, automatic transfer switches, paralleling switchgear, generators for rent or a complete integrated power generation system, finding the best power solution takes a relationship with someone who understands your challenges the way you do.

Remember that they still make the zzr600(zx600j) which is the same bike they built back in 1998. It would deffinantly fit into a newer zzr frame. But what you could do is check the case part numbers that would tell you. If they are the same it should work?

Alot of doing this kind of work is trial and error. Good luck.

Good luck getting a title for it. Never happen in FL unless you had a title for the frame and the engine.
