hey you might want to put the support bracket on. it goes where the 06 pipes ran up to the back through the swingarm. its pretty thick plate so you might need it just for rigidity. looks sweet though

Though it looks great I think you may run into some performance issues with it.


Even though the Gen1 and Gen2 frame look nearly identical from the outside they are quite different on the inside. Braces to stiffen some areas and lack of braces to add flex have been relocated from model to model. This all also comes into play with all chasis components to include the swingarm and suspension components.

Now granted the affects may not be enough that the average street rider could even pick up on them; or they may cause you some goofey ride characteristics.

Just keep note that with your swap out you may never get your front and or rear suspension to work smooth; as one affects the other. A one inch shorter wheelbase is a pretty big change also.

would it not alter the way that the bike handles as I thought that the 07 model like the 06 had a different swingarm pivot position. I am sure that it had been moved higher up as to aid in the stability but hey if it bolts in and yuo haven't noticed any difference then all is great . Well done as it looks the business

IF that arm was only lighter then the 04-05 arm it would be have been on my bike to. I dont know why there were claims of a light swingarm???? I dont know really but the 04-05 arm is about a pound lighter but I do like the looks of this 06 arm a lil....

good luck!
