It’s a direct swap, the only difference is the rear brake “triangle” mount. I’m going to try to modify the 929 mount to fit if possible because I want to get it powdercoated black along with the swingarm. I’m trying to send my parts out for powder on Saturday otherwise I would just buy a 954 mount (I may have to anyways if I can’t modify the 929 one to fit.)

Once I figure out if I can successfully modify it I will post pictures of what I did. If not I will post pictures of the difference.

Also figured out how to repair the scratches in the swingarm (or any aluminum for that matter.) I’m going to use a propane torch with aluminum brazing rods to fill them and then grind/sand it down. Brazing is a welding like technique where you heat the piece you are trying to fill to 730*f and then flow and aluminum rod into the void. I remember seeing it on tv a long time ago under the name alumalloy. I found some youtube videos on how to do it. Not something I would use for a structural repair but since I’m just trying to fill in scratches it should work great.

A lost art.

Anyone doing mechanical or fitting and turning apprenticeships in the 60s - 70s (as was I) would remember this, but more commonly used with brass rods - and crackling flux!!

Well I spent pretty much all day learning how to braze and grinding and sanding and overall I would say I’m 85% happy with how it turned out. There are a couple pin holes and places I couldn’t really get to but I’m going with a matte black powder so I think it will look nice when all is said and done. This isn’t a show bike so I think it will be okay anyway. I guess I will learn a lesson on how well powder covers minor imperfections at least.
