I've been holding onto this for a few years thinking one day... but that day isn't coming.

So up for sale is a nice FZR600 swingarm modified to slip right into an XS650 frame.  Narrowed to fit the frame and has the shock mounts added along with the mount for a brake arm (not sure if that was stock or added).

Pivot area measures 7 13/16 inches without the dust covers.

Shock mounts measure 8 3/4" from the inside surface across to the other inside surface.

8 3/8" of space on the inside for the wheel (exposed axle)

20 1/2" from pivot bolt to center of axle adjustment area

Complete with axle adjusters and 17mm stock FZR600 axle which is too long by 1/4", as the swingarm has been narrowed to fit the XS frame.  Could easily be made up with a couple thick washers and nobody would notice.  Also comes with another set of axle adjusters that have been bored to 20mm.

$125 plus the ride from Toronto.








"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Sorry - should have updated the thread - swingarm is gone to a new home.

  Fzr600 are steel, same with yzf600r(yzf is a little wider as well)  Fzr400 are aluminum and 1/2" shorter.

I didn't modify it - it came in a bundle of parts I picked up (6 years ago).  It was steel.

I ask because I would like to put aluminium swing arms on my GT500 and possibly my RD350.  I do have a Ninja 250 swing arm that will fit the GT500 easily but I would rather have an aluminium one.  I believe there is a posting on here with swing arm measurements but I haven't checked it out lately to see if there have been any new posts.
