I forgot to answer your question about swing arm being bent if sprocket carrier bearing spacer is left out. Not only likely but common. On later GSXR the welds can/will crack, particularly 2008~2010 which had pretty poor welds . Early models were welded up properly so you can heat swing arm and push it back into shape (only heat bent side near pivot end and use scissor jack with wood block) I had to do one or two at dealer after people got cheap tyre change and spacer 'went missing'. Usually the sprocket carrier bearing was shot as well with wheel 'floating'

The old steer stops were broken off so I turned some bushings and bolted them to the lower triple. i also started on a fork brace/fender mount for the late model fender. Not sure how I will mount the fender and whittle the brace down yet.
