Gen 3 swingarm on gen 1.

Do you have knowledge about the handing after doing this??
The gen 3 swingarm should more or less be a straight swap, please do tell if I need something special to make it fit.

The gen 3 swingarm should be a little shorter than gen 1 swingarm. Iam worried about the handing.
Of what I have heard the gen 1 swingarm is plenty short as it is???

(If you know the weight of gen 3 swingarm. That is also appreciated.)
(Picture is found on an old thread on this forum)


Thanks a lot ! :)

This guy mentions that he had to change out the stock shock as well because the gen 3 swing-arm interfered with it in some way, I think he's on these forums actually but I don't remember his name.

I've had various shock styles on it.... Unless you bike is lowered alot, then it can contact the reservoir..

I bought all the stuff to do it and I recall needing a Gen3 (08-10) shock and Gen2 (05-06) ZX-6R linkage. I never ended up doing it though.
