I'm selling my braced and modified stock '78 kz1000 swing-arm, it may fit other years. It comes with stainless fasteners, freshly zinc plated axle adjusters, aluminum torque arm and new needle bearings. (500 miles) The whole arm was powder coated years ago but has some blemishes and scratches on it from being moved around so much. I would also like to sell the rear disk setup with it, including a freshly reground and drilled disk, rebuilt rear caliper- new seals, pistons, pads, stainless steel brake line, and a freshly rebuilt rear MC. The MC reservoir lid leaks a tiny bit if you turn it over, no problem once on the bike. The caliper and MC were painted with Gun Kote, which is a ceramic paint that is impervious to solvents or brake fluid. if you want any of these parts separate we might be able to work something out, but I would prefer to sell them as a package. Asking $275 shipped OBO, you would spend way more on parts to do all this yourself. Located in Daly City, CA.

Man, you're making it hard to resist. :laugh: Do you know if all of the stock bits clear the arm? Brake pedal, mastercylinder, rear footpegs, exhaust, etc...?

The brake pedal, footpegs, and MC will clear the arm. I never had a stock exhaust so I cant say for sure, but it cleared 2 different 4 into 1 exhaust setups with plenty of room.
