Get one of these, or you won't be getting too far. There's a lot of cutting and grinding to do so you need something more heavy duty than your Dremel. You can use the Dremel on the smaller things, like the bottom of the R6 seat, the under fender, and the tail plastic.
thumbnail
All this stuff needs to be out of the way. You can see I've already cut off the luggage rails.

Get rid of the coolant bottle and drain the hose a bit, or stick something in the end of it.
thumbnail
Remove the stock under fender.
thumbnail
Take all the electronics off the side, and let the harness hang out of the way.

This crack was from one of the previous owners... they dumped it over onto the pipe, and it twisted the damn frame.

Here's the new tail! Along with the under fender and tail light, you need to get all the little plastic rivits, the tail light bracket, and the two screws that hold the tail to the bracket. Best thing to do is go look at the fiche online at www.ronnies.com.

In order for the R6 under fender to fit between the FZR frame, you need to cut it up a bit. I found that the battery box fits right in perfectly, so cut the fender back a bit at the same width. I ended up going a bit further back in the end, but I wasn't sure how much I'd need to cut at first. You can always take more off.

You'll need to cut off the seat lock section on this side of the fender.

Again, I ended up cutting further than this, but this was a good start. If you cut too much off, the fender is going to fall through the frame.

Here we are with the first fitting. It's hard to explain, but you want the fender at the rear peg brackets to be the same width.

We can see here that the tail still needs to come up more at the rear... it also needs to come forward a ways, as it sticks out past the rear tire too far.
