Hello,

I'm trying se find out more information about mounting a single sides swing arm on my 02 R1 - I have a complete kit on hand from a 02 VFR800 and I don't know if this is going to work. I do have access to a machine shop to do some mods but for instance, the R1 stock swing arm is 1.5 inches longer than the VFR one if I measure from the mounting shaft to the rear axle.Any of you out there have any info about it to share ???
Thank You

well it would certainly be sharp handling with a 1.5" reduction in wheelbase. (not to mention the wheelies)
does it measure the same width as the frame (at the shaft)? is the shaft diameter the same?

BIG question: will the sprockets line up???
