Seat subframe and fairing fitted
We finally got around to fitting the rear subframe. Although the standard YZF-R125 subframe is on the heavy side, using the rear part of an original frame is much easier than trying to build a subframe from scratch. It would be a massive amount of work to duplicate all the mounting points for the tail panels, seat, pillon pegs, etc. So, using a written-off frame, we cut off the rear section and welded on lugs to bolt onto the TZR frame. This was actually pretty straighforward, just 4 bolts, really. Here is what it looks like with the seat panels fitted.
We are quite pleased with the outcome and tried to match the height of tail unit to the TZR-125 tank. Comparing it with the YZF-R125, it sits slightly lower, but overall looks better this way. And, clearance is still plenty. So, we then decided to fit the complete panel to see what it looks like. They are not fully fitted, but are in the their final positions.
