Hi Jesters,

I'm interested in putting a single sided swingarm on my 98 600 Hornet. Looked through the forums about the topic and have come across a message in which you seem to have been planning to produce single sided swingarms for my model bike. Is this something you ever got around to, as I'd be interested in purchasing one.

Thank you

Anthony

Hi, we did have plans on that but the costs involved was high so converted them all for the fireblade.

There are plenty of builds on the nest on what u need and how to do it and the most detailed is 370steves, well worth a read.

My hornet cost around £500 plus the cost of the arm.

A few details for you and others reading this.

Vfr800 arm complete will cost around £300 with a wheel.
The arm will then need the Suspention mount moving, bottom to top.
The arm will be too wide so need trimming down on the rhs.
The front sprocket will need spacing out.
A new rear sprocket will need making as you can't buy them off the shelf £45
And then a few farm spacers here and there.

To sum it up this is possible as a DIY job and could be farmed out to a local welding shop.

We planned on selling the complete kit but the price would work out at around £600
Hope this helps.
