Hey man Iím Nate, kick ass build. I bought a Cb550 from a stoner with a 2001 gsxr1000 front end flopping around in the neck. He had big hopes but no money. Anyways Iím using the fork but I have a set of those wheels with really nice rubber on them. They are the 3 spoke polished aluminum wheels. If you could use them or know someone that could Iíd let them go cheap to get them out of here.

Nice progress.  Is it the tail light that's crooked or the seat?  It doesn't look too far off at least.

I think its the tail that sits wrong..I don't know the brand so it may not be that nice of a piece, plus I don't think it was designed to be run with the tail light either. Nate send me a pic of those wheels?

Nice progress.  Is it the tail light that's crooked or the seat?  It doesn't look too far off at least. 

Seat shell is clearly not square to that subframe - assuming the shot was actually dead on from the rear and not off to one side.  I.e. perception matters, but it looks low on the left.

The question is why.  Is it that the seat came from a mold that wasn't straight or do the mounts have some range of adjustment/slack or is the subframe less than 100% straight?  Easy place to start is to loosen the mounting screws and see if it can be tweaked straight. If not, can the mounting holes be slotted slightly to bring it back plumb? If that's still not enough, it's time to check the subframe and mounts to see how far out of square they are. No need for a CMD Computrack analysis.  Simple straight levels and or cheap laser levels are adequate to determine what's wrong. 

We had an FZR400 that was dead on straight in most planes, but something didn't look right. I discovered that the wheels could not be made to be in line because the steering head was pushed 12mm to one side.

A good place to start is to get the front wheel vertical and then see if the rear wheel is also vertical AND in line with the front and if the seat mounts are dead on horizontal at the same time.  new bikes are not always spot on and old bikes are usually out of alignment in several planes.

It could be all of those things Teazer. The poor thing appears to have had a rough life. I bought the seat used off Ebay because it was cheaper than trying to go back with stock plastics. The subframe is two separate pieces, should be easy to tweak back if its off any. I'm just at the put it on and see where its at stage right now.

Common problem when bolts are overtightened. There was service bulletin about the 'problem'
Torque is crazy low, around 4~6 ft/lbs. The bolts feel like they could fall out  as it's just about finger tight (not using a socket or wrench)
