Default How to fit a Single sided swing arm to your Blade

HOW TO FIT A SSSA TO YOUR BLADE



There are two types of 750 swing arm the one above is the one YOU DON'T WANT This was an expencive mistake I made, so double check with the vendor that the shock linkage is the same as your blade. The correct arm comes off a 94 to 96 VFR 750. Before 1994 they are wrong wrong wrong......... and you dont want that now do you!

I'm not bitter



The one on the left is the right arm, and the one on the right is wrong. they also have some codes on them that refer to the year of manufacture.



[size=5]MZ7 is the right code for the year you need [^][/size=5]



[size=5]M14 is not the code you want[/size=5][size=5][V][/size=5]



Back wheele out with a bunch of other stuff.



This is the spacer 25mm outside dia with a 20mm hole through it, and 25mm long



The spacer fits snugly into the right hand side of the swing arm. its easier to hold it in place with a little dollop of cream cheese or KY gel.



Had to remove the padock stand to take the pressure off the swing arm so I can drop out the shock. Problem was the axel stands were to short. I knocked up a platform out of 50x50 and ply to lift them up a bit.



Started to undo the bolts to drop the shock, then thought it might be a good idea to take a photo so I remember how it goes back together.

I wish my woman was as dirty as that!



So anyway, the shock is out and needs a bit of doing up, and the next thing to go is the swing arm.



This is the castle nut you have to undo first.



And you will need one of these sockets. I got this one off ebay for around $43.00



Undo the castle nut and remove it from the swinging arm spindle. then as in this photo use a normal 27mm socket to undo the hex nut on the other side.



Now go back to the first side and use a 11mm allen key socket to remove the centre spindle.



Slide out the spindle, and drop out the swing arm. To completely remove the old arm you will need to split your chaine.



Slip the new one back in with the 25mm spacer on the right hand side of the arm



And prop the swing arm up on something proppy.



Reinstall the shock and the linkage, but leave the top bolt of the shock untill last. Tighten up all the bolts that go through the bottom of the shock linkage, then gently lift, or lower the swing arm to locate the bolt through the top of the shock.

I fucked about for ages trying to line up the bottom bolts, the penny droped, and it went straight in.

Drrrrrrrr!!

Once the top of the shock is dun up you can de-prop-ulate the back of the swing arm



Look at all that room I have to put the zorsty bits in to.



Could'nt resist putting on the rear hoop



And there we are then. Swing arm in..... It was one of the easy jobs so far, just check you get the right swing arm and it will slot straight in with the addition of the spacer shown earlier...

WHAT SPACER???

Wernt you watching???



This Fuckin spacer........... Oh never mind um going ome!
