There are some kits available that drill into the swing arm, if its got a flat underneath. For your little RR, it might not work. On my 900RR i had a guy make lugs that I had welded to the underneath of the swingarm and then bolted up a set of aftermarket spools.

You might need to do the same thing.

A quick Google search showed me that it looks like some 400's came with tapped holes for spools, and some didn't. What production year is yours?

Re: enquiry

depends on the model - 2002/2003 954 had the swinging are with them on already. Some models like the 929 the swinging are isn't the same left/right so it makes it harder ro weld a bracket on the lower face of the swinging arm. Am not sure what other models had the uneven swinging arm but something to look for before making any decisions!

Good point Machinehead. I hadn't even noticed that on my 929. I have used the 'big effort' flat pads stand under the arm.

I certainly wouldn't risk drilling into the arm, especially considering the stresses that part of the swing arm is under on some roads/conditions.

Re: enquiry

You can get chain adjusters with spools on, I’m sure Gilles do them, won’t be cheap though.
