Hi All, first post ont he forum.

I have found a 1990 FZR1000 Exup which has been modified to represent a race replica of the OW-01.

The bike has fiber glass replica race fairings with a race seat, it has no rear lights at present and requires the headlights to be commisioned.

I cant see it running as there is no battery present but I have been assured that the engine is sweet.

Recorded milage on the clocks is 17,000 miles.

Overall condition is fair but it will need the brakes doing as well as tyres, chain and sprockets and all fluids.

~The rear subframe has not been chopped but it has been modified with some welding and struts to accept the race seat.

cosmetics on the replica fairings are fair with some scratches one crack and some cracking to the paint on the front fairing. The paintwork is fair and has been masked somewhat roughly to add some race lines.

front brakes are from an R1 rear are stock.
Exhaust is original except for a race can.

The screen is not original and needs some dressing with a dremal to make it symetrical and some of the fastener holes dont align well.

The pictures make it look very tidy but its a bit rougher than they show.

Seller is after £875 and im having a hard time deciding whether this is a worthwhile project or a franken bike....

Would appreciate your input.

Intended use would be road bike not track if I got it.

Any advice gratefully received.

EXUP prices are just starting to bounce after a long period of time being on their arses.

That price for a nice looking bike - if running right - seems good; you are unlikely to lose on it.

Make sure the carbs and exup valve havent been knackered.

thanks for the reply.

The only issue is that I cant see it running - I might give him a call and ask if I can bring a battery down and see it running.

Im adding some closer pics of the screen too.

If youíre handy with the spanners the issues you mentioned are an easy fix. Just need your time
Screen looks a strange shape to me anyway. Think Iíd cut it to give a more modern look while trying to keep as much protection as possible. Mask out your intentions TIL youíre happy then start cutting steadily. Iíd use a sharp spoke shave to clean up the edges afterwards

If itís been stood it may run really rough at low revs but this is curable bybcleaning the pilot jets. Ask Nuggitt how we know 😂

Ultimately if itís a runner itís worth the price in parts

I'm afraid I'm going to rain on your parade.
It's not an OWO1 replica. It's a bodger's fantasy.
Fairing fit is atrocious.
Screen is a hanging offence.
FZR-R decals are back to front. So much for attention to detail.
RWU forks don't fit OWO1 aspiration.
RH handledar is buggered.
Seat/tail unit has nothing to do with OWO1.
If the seller can't be arsed to get a battery on it it and present it for sale, what else?

IMHO it's value is spares or repair. £250.

I was looking at the OWO1 replica a few days ago. nod

According to the write up. It says...PUT FRESH FUEL IN MY AUXILIARY TANK AND IT FIRED UP STRAIGHT AWAY ENGINE SOUNDS SWEET. If he's being honest about that, then the carbs must be ok and that's one problem out of the way.

Have you been to look at it?

Like you say the fairing panels don't line up properly. Some parts look a bit rough in places and I can't tell if the exup valve is in place?

It's hard to advise folks what they should do but if your good at tinkering and spending time and money on it then its up to you. nod

This is what an OWO1 / 1000 Exup bastard replica looks like.

If its running and the engine sounds OK then it's almost worth it

I can tell you from experience that the ow01 bodywork is tough to fit and fit properly
And that isn't done properly by any stretch of the imagination
The nosecone is on wonky and is lower on the nearside which is whats making the offside belly pan fit bad as in the pic the screen is fixable but your better off getting a proper one
Unfortunately for you the bodywork fits better on the later exups as they did away with the oil radiator
But that still doesn't mean it can't be done right
Like what's been said before if your handy with the spanners and
Have a bit of experience with fibreglass and a keen eye for detail
It can be made to fit better
I always say the perishables on any bike is £500 ontop of what you pay for it
Remember tyres chain and sprockets fluids pads spark plugs wheel bearings head bearings swing arm bearings head stock bearings it all ads up and quickly just plough through it while it's apart for peice of mind and a guarantee that your on a safe bike that's fresh to go for years to come
I'll keep my eyes on the thread and if you want to pick my brains ill be happy to help 👍

Hey Paul, that's a fast response. So you're always lurking in the shadows waiting for an interesting thread. Good to see you posting.

I believe Iíve just seen this very bike offered on FB

If itís the same one itís owned by a racer. Most racers know the spanners, some more than others. This seller either knows itís time to sell this on as itís not worth his efforts to fix it up or he just donít have a clue how to do it because he employs someone else to maintain his race bike

My advice would be to clean the rose tint off your specs and assess what your willing to get yourself into. Thereís lots of decent exups out there 👍
