Hi to all,

I've been looking on here for a while so i thought i'd better register. I don't have a fighter but i own a TL1000R.It has been looking to convert in to Streetbike . I do most of the work myself .Most other forums are not interested in custom bikes so here i am.
I am looking if someone can help me with advice about VFR SSSA how to fit on my TL1000R.

Best to all from Croatia,
Denyst

somewhere in this thread will be my top shock mount , you could possibly weld a bottom mount onto a standard arm ?

don't use a VFR arm.

Mine was a Ducati arm.



My TL1000S used a GT Hawk arm and a Ducati spool.

Thanks for advice,

Why don't use a VFR arm?
I was planing and I see this blue tl 1000r and looking he was used vfr SSSA and will like to do similar like this tl.
Also welding is not a problem in this case.
I am in europe and easy way and cheap to get same parts.
Also will fit exsaust of Ducati Panigale 1199.
If I use Ducati arm how hard is to fit on tlr .
TL1000R arm is 232mm
and I find list of similar SSSA arm and if can help this is list to future build.

Here is some info on other sssa's...ENJOY!


Ducati 748/916/996/998 - 243mm
Ducati 848= 260mm (10.2 inches)
Honda VFR750 (1990-93) - 242mm

Honda VFR ('90-'2003+), Hawk, RC30/45, NSR250 all use the same relative rear wheel offset. i.e. mix and match wheels amongst the various models and so long as the spindle face is unmolested the wheels will remain centered.

Width doesnt matter...you're going to have to cut the lugs on the frame for anything. Even the gt hawk arm is too wide.

The duc arm is best because the shock mount. It doesnt require a great deal of trickery to make the aftermarket tlr shocks work with the duc arm.
Also the sprocket and wheel spacing works with the tlr.
you'll find the blue one on the ASF site
Thanks a lot will see about ducati arm also will like cnfirmation about tl1000r arm masurments in mm if I have good information is 232 mm .
And if some one have all dimension masurments of tl1000r swing arm will be great to share.
I will try to do all to not cat any part of main frame on tl .
All other exsepted SSSA fitings without touch frame is a easy job because I have available all machines.

I found this blue tl and ill see what he do about arm.
Sign up at tlplanet.com or tlzone.net and ask for dimensions...they'll be able to get you most.

You're either going to cut the frame or you're going to build you swingarm from scratch. Suzuki arms are narrow at the pivot. My GSXR1000 was wider at the pivot than the TL's, and mounting the narrowest arm I could find (91 VFR750...mid 90's is actually a bit narrower, but not narrow enough and the shock layout is uncooperative), I still had to cut the lugs way down.
True...I just didn't have access to any of them in US. How short are they? Also, weren't there a couple of Euro Aprilias that had single side swingarms?
Thanks for me is not a problem to find SSSarm in europe of any bike also I see this blue tlr he do some mashining on arm vfr800 and fit them but dont know if is cat frame.
I was on mind to same vfr arm cut and welding to fit in to frame then do xray on weld, shock is not big problem have solution for that.
Have all diferent stuf on my mind but still dont know wich will use.

All of this I doing with my 2 boys and hope will have great projectand I am not in rush .

Also if any of you will be come on holliday in Split Croatia welcome to give me mail or call will be glad to meet you and if you need any info.
don't use a VFR arm.

It's very interesting to see more photos of your project. I understand it's been a long time, but if you still have the material, it's very cool
