Interesting ideas from the R6 arm. Just throwing them out.

The lower crossbar is curved with the same radius as the upper brace. The lower crossbar is the same distance from the tire as the upper brace. The upper brace sticks out about 3 inches further than the lower crossbar, due to the circumference and location of the tire.



The 2 supports that go from the lower crossbar to the upper brace could also be curved like the R6 arm, conforming to the curvature of the tire.



The special tool should make this easier to fabricate.

Found a similar swingarm photo.

The new one may be a bit different.

Checked it out for reference.

Good primer on how to build a tubular swingarm.

Not sure if the main arms can be made like yours, with one bend.



On the R6 swingarm, the main arms attach to the pivot tube at a 90 degree angle for about 3.5 inches before angling out. That helps to clear the frame. The OEM arms are attached at an angle, but are only 1 inch thick, and the OEM swingarm is narrow, for a smaller tire.

need a double bend? or have the main arms as a loop with arms joining to the pivot tube

Swingarm parts finally arrived.

Took a while, but still amazing to get new parts for a 32-year-old bike.

One off titanium kickstand bolt.

Looks like the one I made for the RZ350, but the shaft and thread lengths are slightly different.

OEM vs. Ti:

I was thinking about using 2 tubes from the upper brace to the pivot tube - like the tubular arm in the photo above.

But, I want the swingarm to be light - so might be better to skip those 2 tubes. May even use just one tube from the upper brace to the crossbar.

The design could be similar to this:
