SS Swingarm

Ok, I've searched and searched, and while I found one for my older bike, I can't find a single sided swingarm for my '07 zx10 that isn't some stretched piece of crap...

Anyone know of anyone making and selling these? My first born son is due any day now so payment shouldnt be an issue

'99 ZX-7R
'07 ZX-10R
'11 FZ8

If loud pipes save lives imagine what learning to ride could do for you...

Use a Honda vfr one and retro fit it. That is what all the street fighter guys do.

Is it Fast?

Ok i wasn't sure of something like that would work. don't know what measurements i need to have or look for etc. I found a swingarm from a triumph s3 for a hell of a price.. but wasn't sure what my options were for fitting different parts on

I think someone on the forums is doing the VFR swing arm. Check it out, should give you lots of information as he is almost done.

Gregg's customs did one for a Gen 1 ZX-10R awhile back. It looked awesome but I wonder how it would feel when flogged on a track. Looks like a trellis design that has been filled.

If you're ZX10R is a track tool, you might want to reconsider the single sided swingarm idea, but if you're looking just to make something custom and cool-looking it should be fine.

What about this one? looks to be a vfr one with some mods done to make it fit. I am thinking of this on my zx-10r fighter.

Looks like a cool project.... but that wheel just has too much "Bling" for me.

try this link ...

While looking for BST wheels, I cam across this site. They used to have SS swingarms for ZX-10R listed. And, they looked solid and VERY strong!
