Shorten tail section

I really like the look of some of the monsters and street fighters withe the shortened tail section but have seen many attempts on gsxrs that look way out of place. I was fooling around with a couple apps on my iPad and came up with this. I actually kinda like it enough to maybe try and do it. What do you think?

Re: Shorten tail section

looks hideous. way out of place. maybe if the bike was naked with a belly pan it would look more appropriate.

Re: Shorten tail section

in my opinion... looks f****** strange... i dont think it looks right at all; not that im a fan of the stretched bikes but maybee a short tail would look good on a stretched busa

Re: Shorten tail section

Shortened tail on a stretched bike is hideous, that first pic u posted looks like a buell in the rear. With mc bars and a belly pan, and headlight, it'd look cool. The streetfighter look is kinda all or nothing.

What app did u use?

Re: Shorten tail section

Too short and too low. Looks terrible. I think if you wanted to pull it off you should take influences from the Ducati 1198 Panigale. I think this is perfect for that MotoGP Stinger tail type look.



Also, Greggs Customs has a kit that allows GSXR tails on Hayabusas and I think that looks pretty trick.

Re: Shorten tail section

That's because he's trying to emulate the lazy/half ass street fighter mentality.
Crash a bike and trash fairing - take 'em off. Crash again and bust tail - take it off, leave just a seat. Anything streetfighter screams neglected and abused to me, and looks like the owner was too cheap to actually fix anything.

Case in point of where OP is getting the idea.

Yeah I'll agree on that one with you. These pics were from just a couple months after I got the bike. Still building it back to a nice bike. Like I said I was just fooling around with the pictures and now the more I look at em they do look out of place. I do still however like the short tails on some bikes, just not meant for a gixxer

Re: Shorten tail section

ive seen plenty of sick looking streetfighters. and then again i have seen a bunch of bikes that were wrecked and then the fairings stripped and goofy lights mocked up and never really any pride was put into the build.

No talent eh-hole squid, who stunts in traffic wearing flippie-floppies, board shorts and sunglasses when he is not parked at Tim Horton's representing his single-member squid bike club. Also a Fuckwad, a Jizz Receptacle and a Twat Waffle.
