Re: playboy project

Looking pretty damn good on this end. What else are you planning to do to it? Phenomenal job on the headlights too! Is that a different upper cowl or just modified?

Re: playboy project

A lot of people have run single sided swingarms on the 900's. Check lambchop's project for some good information switching out to a vfr800 swinger. You are considering and undertail exhaust or fairing? I think undertail exhausts are over-rated. I personally like the side mounts better.

Edit: Great job on the upper.. I thought you had just switched the upper out, but wow amazing work. It has the same shape, but the headlights look fantastic, and much cleaner than stock.

Re: playboy project

I much doubt anything does. I know the one chops used only need a few MM shaved off of it and a spacer to align everything properly. Unfortunately I think he sold it to fund the RSV swinger he attached later. Definitely go check out his winter revamp thread to get some solid answers including what years need the least amount of machining.

Re: playboy project

Yes VFR800 arm fits but does need some fab work to fit, not so much the frame but the arm itself needs the two bearing on the brake side recessing further into the arm and 4-5mm taking off. Cant remember all the measurements sorry should really have taken some better photos and recorded all measurements to help out other folk

VFR750 arms fit not issue with only a spacer as the whole lot is smaller than the blade frame, but they do look thin and a little weedy compared to the 800 arm

Sold the complete modded arm and wheel for £300 in the end.

Front end wise cbr954 929 frontend goes right on no messing but you need the whole lot, wheel, brakes yokes etc ect. If you want a multi spoke front wheel the the SP1 / SP2 wheel fits with some custom spacers or if your feeling tight some 2 and 3mm washers does the job

I used 954 yokes and cbr1000RR5 forks, all works great and you then get radial calipers too, happy days

Re: playboy project

Speak of the devil! I told you he'd give you some killer info, and most machine shops should be able to do the work, and probably for a decent price to boot. It is worth a shot if you like it. I think it gives the bike a killer look, though honestly my RVT1000R is going to keep its stock swing arm. I may eventually switch it out, but not sure. I don't plan on doing too much to the bike, definitely a paint job so it's not pure red.... after that some mods to give it moar power sound great It has a full exhaust, just needs PC3. Might have the head shaved down to up the compression ratio, I think it's only like 10.8:1 from the factory......kinda low.

Re: playboy project

Just to add, the 800 arm is very heavy though as is any SSA arm. I did measure it all when I swapped it over and its 10lb heaver than stock if I remember correctly.. RSV arm is the same weight as stock, but the caliper and hanger is lighter than the blade one so this swaps saves 1.5lbs

Re: playboy project

So 1.5lbs of weight savings (unsprung weight at that), and killer looks? Sounds like a worthwhile upgrade. Unsprung weight is the best weight to reduce to increase acceleration! That's why you see so many people do the 520 chain/sprocket conversion, saves a little weight overall.

Re: playboy project

Yep thats right Demon thats why I swapped it, + I really wanted a 6" rear wheel so I could run 190 tyres as the 180 just looks too thin from the rear. If I were doing the RSV arm swap again I would use the RSV wheels also as saves agro with wheel alignment and the caliper catching the wheel, you need to shave a small amount off the caliper to clear the wheel otherwise.

OZ wheels on the RSV factory so they go nice too hey, while you ripping bits of an RSV why not take the Ohlins frontend also while your there!! haha Thats something I could be tempted with myself..
