Some of the ZXR 400RR racebikes in Mondello have a 2008 R6 tail grafted on.
Looks well imo.

Yes the Gen 1 S1000rr back end is unvented and much wider and bigger than the Gen 2 vented and Gen 3 back ends.

So I got rid of the wide back end.

I'd say it'd look well if done right but the original seat would be far more comfortable
