Before -



Before-



Parts Used/Work Done -

300mm rotors -
caliper spacers -
steel braided lines F&R -
brake pads F&R -


2008 swingarm -
swingarm bearings -
2008 rear axle -
2008 shock -
custom spacers and bracket -
swingarm spools -

Motion Pro throttle -
Dan Moto Carbon GP -
Exhaust Hanger -
Speedo DRD -
Chain and sprockets -

New rear stand -

Tore the bike down in december and started with fresh fluids -




Then it just kind of sat like this for a while I waited for parts to come in -


One of the first things to go on was the new throttle -




Snagged a full set of pads off ebay - HH sintered


Since the swingarm was coming off I decided to degrease behind the tranny -


Got the sub frame powder coated to match the 2008 swingarm -


Beard's spacer kit!


2008 swingarm and shock, new sprockets (+3) and new chain -


Finally swapping out the swingarm -




Once I got it all together, I thought it looked incomplete with so much gold in the front and the rear being completely blacked out.



So I ordered new, bigger rotors -


Also had to order a Speedo DRD for the gearing change -




Used a GPS app to calibrate -


Also added new brake lines F&R from CoreMoto with +2" on the rear line for the new swingarm.

And here is how it sits as of today -





Still need a front tire, but that'll go on at the end of the month.

I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I'm also pretty happy I planned everything out and actually followed through with it. :laugh

That swingarm looks so nice on that bike. Really tastefully done man. Nothing flashy, just straight up class. Great build!

Sick man. What do you think of the new swinger? That big of a difference in feel and performance?
I haven't really gotten to try it in the twisties yet. Around town I notice zero difference.

One thing I've noticed is the bike is rock solid in long sweepers... (on ramps)
There's a connecting ramp I sometimes take when I'm cruising around town, average speed is usually 100.

Took it after putting on the swingarm and the bike was just planted. Felt like I could have dialed in so much more throttle.

Mind you, this swingarm extended my wheelbase slightly.
