    SLR-FX-FMX Frame differences

    Does anybody know what differences (if any) there are between the SLR/FX and the FMX650 frames?
    I know the SLR and FX are identical because I've turned an SLR into an FX and vice versa.
    I'm interested in re-framing and older Vigor into an FMX650 to get a 2007 registration number.
    I can see the header pipes are different (catalysts) and the footrest hangers are different (but the mounts look the same).
    What about fuel tank / seat etc?
    Current Fleet:

    Re: SLR-FX-FMX Frame differences

    Ok, so nobody knows.
    Perhaps someone can help with the ULEZ?
    It says bikes registered after 1st July 2007 AND Euro 3 compliant, but TFL and GOV websites only check the date registered. Is the date registered the only thing they'll look at? I'm wondering whether I can get away with a late registered FMX, which will show registered after the cut-off date but which won't be Euro 3.

    If it was me, I'd chance the late registration. Probably for PTW they aren't as picky as for a diesel powered car or van.
    I don't have anything to base this on but experience with my experience with officialdom will tell me if they just go by date of first reg it should be OK.

    I might just watch the breaker's for a frame with V5C, I can build up a VigorFMX from that.
