The chain guard is not my work, and the "z K z" is the manufacturer logo of the excentric swing arm.

I was very diligent today.
My heard was bleeding but have to do the final cut off to the hangers for the 4 in 4 and rear break pedal.
I need the space for the new GSX-R 1100 WP/WR (93-94) i have shot for 175 Euro on e-bay privat sells with all
suspention parts, wheel axis, swing arm pivot, chain gard, rear brake caliper with new brake pads.
The swing arm is 600 mm long, (eye to eye) and 60 - 80 mm longer as my excentric swing arm.
The swingarm to frame width is 232 mm and is plug and play to the frame. Only the swing arm chain rubber buffer
need some some cuts. My rear wheel with sprocket hub, rear caiper hub and all spacers fits a little tight in .
My old swing arm opening width is 250 mm and i have to remove 0,50 mm on right side spacer to get an easy wheel in and out.
Wheel is in the middle and sprokets/chain alignments looks perfect. Need a longer 630 chain with 6 extra links.
DonĀ“t want to do a 530 chain conversion now, all sprockets are like new.
So far so good here are the pics.




........and three beers later






more coming soon

Cool upgrade :)
Will it increase performance/handling, or just look cool and give you a new challange?

Should increase performance/handling, just looks cool is the side effect.

Have to pull the needle bearings to mill the suspention linkage to the spacing of the mainstand mount brackets.
It was very difficult, i need a lot ot pressure, heat and the right bearing puller to get them out.




Had to mill 10 mm on both sides.



Made some brass tube sleeves for the Z1 16 mm OD swing arm pivot to press and glue into the 20 mm ID GSXR needle bearing tubes.



and have to shorten the stainless steel foot rest bolts to not to collide with my GSXR swing arm.



more to come later this week.....

A Little Progress to my mono shock conversion

Had milled the main linkage to the frame down to 38 mm width and shorten the needle bearing sleeve to 39 mm.
Put 2 x 20/27 mm O-Rings into the linkage bearing bore as dust seals.

Have you considered using a rotary shaft seal instead of an o-ring? It seems like a shaft seal might be both lower friction and less likely to wear out.

I also wanted to say that this is the cleanest mono-shock conversion I've ever seen. Your clever and elegant use of the existing frame brackets is fantastic.
