  • swingarm madness

    Ok, so you probably already seen a couple of my posts about compatable swing arm for the TLR , I'm looking for a direct swap or a Swap with minor mods. I always hear hayabusa has alot of direct swap parts for the TL, is the hayabusa swing arm a direct swap? Again thanks for the help!

    Not Even the TLR and TLS are a direct swap. You won't find a direct swap.

    The Busa swingarm won't go on.

    (The TL has a rear pipe that goes through the swingarm that no I4 has.)

        The 07 R1 swingarm i have has a hole straight through where the rear shock passes through it, not sure if it will let the rear pipe pass through as i didn't offer it up at the time my bike was stripped....
        Looks big enough though.....

          Other conversions are not easy, but usually involve a single-sided swingarm with a custom exhaust going up on the non-swingarm side to an under-seat muffler. Needs some cutting and new sprocket carrier/cush, brake disc and caliper, wheel, etc. etc.
          It's about control skill; this is a motorized dance for joy and not Russian roulette.

            If you are not going SSSA why not just use a TLR swinger?

              The GSXR1000K3 bolts straight in but that's where the simplicity ends. Fabrication is required to mount the rear shock - I couldn't be arsed doing it.

              Swinger is quite a bit lighter than the SRAD, K7/8 is lighter still.

                There isn't one for the reasons posted already.
                The TLR frame in the pivot area is not as accomodating as the TLS frame either.

                These pics are from 2003 but little has changed.
                Most of the swingarms are a no brainer to get in the bike.
                At most the lugs would need trimming and the faces lapped using a mandrel on the stock swingarms pivot bolt.
                As said getting it to function is the involved bit,without machine tools or access to them makes all but impossible...imho
