The business end

The frankenswingarm is finally looking like it should. Freshly powdercoated K100 17″ wheel; powdercoated R1100 RT swingarm; R1100S bevel drive; aftermarket carbon hugger for R1100S; Custom made adjustable torque arm. All grafted to the arse of an unsuspecting airhead.

      Hi,
      Racing in 2016 about 4 weeks time! Haven’t updated the blog for a while. Been busy building the race motor which is about to go on the dyno.
      Swing are is fairly straight forward – same pivot pin diameter. But need to shift the motor to the right for alignment ie different mounting bolt spacers. And leaves a gap on one side of the swing arm which I filled in with a 10 mm spacer threaded to the swing arm pivots. Also need to take material off the timing chest cover as it clashes with the frame.

      GSXR front end just needs a spacer at the lower triple and different bearings.

      Cheers
      Adrian
