Just had to grind a little bit off of the frame. Then took the stock zx6r swingarm bolt and bored it out to fit the KZ bolt, so it is pretty much a sleeve. Was able to use all the factory mounting hardware from the zx6r :) Pretty straight forward swap really.

Here's a pic of it mounted in.

Thanks!

 I will be running a dual shock setup. I don't really like the look of the newer swingarm, so the dual shock will at least give it some classic look. Hopefully powder coating the swingarm black will help also.

I think duals will look good also.

As far as the swinger, I like the look with the silver finish. It adds some contrast to the black frame and wheels. But that is just me, you gotta build what you you envision. Who knows, when you get it set up your way and I see it, I will probably like it better than silver!!!!! ;D

Exactly! The frame and swinger are all that will be black really. Wheels will get a metallic gunmetal color, tank & plastics will be a different color (I think), and all the little stuff will be contrasted as well.
