Looks nice, but I don't see why someone would need that.... even with a hp increase.
+1 looks like a good solution to a non existent problem

The funny part is, other than the chain adjusters, it looks identical to mine LOL..

Question:

Why bother making an already heavy swingarm even heavier than to use a more modern and way lighter ZX10, ZX6 or RSV swingarm?

Seems a little bass-ackwards doesn't it?

Meh... looks like it will interfere with the subframe at full compression. Have to use a remote reservoir as well.

oh here goes,the bike is in fact an ex tt bike and was frame and swing arm were built by spondon here in the uk built with extra flex all over as in swing ,the new rider wanted the swing arm braced to stiffen the rear up,and if any one has seen a braced swing arm back ion the early 90's this would not be put of place,this was the idea with the design to keep it in tune with the rest of the bike witch is also all hand made,the bike runns bilet linkage and maxton rear shock with remote unit and is only just heaver than a stock zx7r unit,by 2lb...and iv worked on plenty of trick works swing arms and after market swing arms to know wot im on about...just rebuilt thia after it was 4inch out of square..




YART Team France swing arm off an r1 that we have to put a new plated side in the one side and replace the bracing the other side,and also get it back square.

You do beautiful work and the arm will give you the look you're wanting on that bike.The welds are immaculate.
