Gen2 with 08 swingarm project pics.

Guys I was able to score a 08 swingarm. Thanks to 1300hemibusa for such a great deal. I tried to fit tonight and here are some teaser pics.







so far I did a direct swap. I bought some 636 dogbones and knuckle but found out that the dogbones are same length as the Gen2's.

my concern so far is the clearance between the shock reservoir and the swingarm. I might end up getting a different shocks for this.

swingarm looks real good on that gen2 but def looks like the shock res will get smacked under load. wonder if it will affect how it handles.

Man that arm looks right at home on the gen2 - great work Ebony, looking forward to your riding impression write-up.

Call me crazy but I thought the 2nd gen swingarms looked pretty sweet

Anyways, let us know how it works out.

Your bike looks pretty sick man I think the red and black is evenly balanced ATM, don't get too crazy with the red.

P.S. this one is by far my favorite conversion
THIS BIKE IS SO TRICK!!!!
