So, here I go again. I will start another thread.
I am building what will be my last RR.
It is my version of what a race Raptor should have been. Purists be damned.
This is Kevin Blais ex race Raptor. It was green and will stay that way. Green WAS an option, a more expensive one from Muzzy, that I have never seen.
I will use a brushed silver finish on frame as I don't like black on green paint.
Unlike almost every other Raptors, including Sadowski, etc, this will be RR (N) frame not P frame.
I will add super cool eccentric trick adjusters built into std blocks with TI swingarm pivot rather than std, like my FUSA AMA RR.
Typical carbon fiber tank, Raptor style body, Raptor intake, etc
White marchesini mag wheels.
Gold mag RAM SS swingarm.
Ohlins WSB forks.
Ohlins rear.
AP brakes
AP rotors
Kit carbon airbox
Gear drive big bore motor
Full set of magnesium engine covers (raptors used std covers)
May use Suter dry clutch....
That's the basics...
What do you think?

This is going to be worth watching, and undoubtedly will make so many of us green with envy.
Good luck

It's cool, I am not ready to start. Getting stuff in place, although I may start preparing frame this weekend. It is currently polished and I want brushed finish. RAM magnesium swingarm is currently black and needs a strip and paint to correct color of mag gold. Also need spacer made to convert it to smaller TI axle for custom eccentric adjusters.

I try to do builds that have not really been done on here. My WSB build was unique, I think, as it was ground up rebuild that has never been documented on here of a WSB ZX7RR.
I'm fairly sure that no one has documented a real race Raptor rebuild of a ex race bike that was dissassembled and kept for the most part in one place. There were only a couple of race Raptors, and to be honest it's the only Kawasaki left I can think if I have interest left in restoring. This one is it for me.
