Here's the swingarm I have now. It's an R6 arm converted for the RZV500.

I think RGVSteve said he's done around 70 of these, but he's not doing bikes anymore (just space ships).






I've had this for a few years. It's beautiful and it's not been mounted since the conversion. If I get a full custom swingarm I might be able to make some profit on the R6 arm.

Now, I would do the R6 arm conversion myself. You can see from the pics, it's not super difficult. The pivot width is cut down and has a smaller bushing for the RZV pivot bolt. The ends of the pivot are also turned down for o-rings and end caps. The linkage mounts are welded on the bottom, and the shock hole is sealed up.

I told Steve I want the shock hole open because it looks cool and it's lighter. He said - "If there's no shock there, the hole HAS to be sealed.

I didn't argue with him.

I wonder why he said it had to be sealed. I wonder if maybe he wanted all his stuff to be exactly the same.

Maybe, he is insane anal about details - that's why he's so popular. Plus, he's a great engineer.

Somebody who can weld good and do basic machine work could step into the market left by Steve. It's mostly swingarm conversions and front end swaps. Not custom triples, he liked to do stem swaps and machine spacers to fit. The work he did isn't complicated, but it was high quality.

I know there are guys on this site that can do this kind of stuff all day.


Now - off to the machine shop. Some small parts are ready.

OEM size and custom size titanium relay arm bushings done.

The custom bushings are a precision fit and the left and right are a few thousands different in length. The OD is sized for roller bearings.

Not sure about this head tube crown nut, but I'll keep working on it.




Got the drawings finished for the linkage special bolt and nut, and stepped bushings. Can hardly wait to see if my design works out.
