    04-05 RS125 Tail

    I am planning on putting an 04-05 RS125 tail on my hawk and was wondering if anyone knew of where to get them.

    Thanks!

    I've never ordered from Airtech, so I can't give you first-hand information, but I've only heard good stuff about what they do.

      You may have considerable trouble fitting an RS125 tailsection on a Hawk subframe. RS125's are really narrow little bikes.

        I custom subframe for our bikes is a rather easy undertaking if you have someone who knows how to weld...and the tail is in your hand for fitting and such

          Yeah, I have access to waterjet and can weld etc... I'm just going to make my own subframe

              Yup, you can make a custom subframe that is correct. (For the record I make my own aluminum subframes). But what I said was that it would be difficult to make it fit a stock subframe. You can get a tail section from these guys as well as Airtech:

                Beasley on mine with a narrowed Hiperform subframe. Easy as pie.

                  yeah, I had no intention on making it fit the stock subframe.

                  Did doc change his avatar? It always bothered me to look at postes at work cause there were bouncing anime boobs.

                  Thanks for the links!

                    Beasley Composites is the cheapest, has anyone heard anything bad about them?

                        Eh, I wouldn't say that. Beasely is cheap and sturdy and decent, worth the $$ in the end. The finish can leave a bit to be desired and will require some prep work before painting. Also, it is gel coat type fiberglass, so it will get spiderweb cracks in the gel when it flexes. The best would be Sharkskinz. I got the Beasley because I wasn't sure it would fit and I didn't want to spend 2x as much $ to find out it wouldn't work or didn't look right. Eventually I'll throw down for a carbon tail.

                          Yeah, I'm planning on making a mold off of the tail when I get it so I can make tails when I wreck.

                          Is the beasley atleast woven fiberglass cloth, or is it chop glass?

                              Yes but when you order your beasley bodywork it ships with neat literature.

                              theclaxton, if you are capable of pulling a mold then you are more than capable of finishing and prepping the Beasley glass. I would modify the tail so that if meets up with the tank before I bothered with a mold. JD's tail looks good but it gets a little funky up at the front along the sides where it doesn't quite match up with the tank. Of course it doesn't really matter it's just that before you go through the trouble of pulling a mold you mind as well make it perfect.
