VFR swingarm conversion?

Hi I am new to this forum, has anyone done a vfr swingarm conversion and how much work is involved in modifying to make it fit? I have a 97 cbr 900RR. I love the bike but am just looking for a different look. If anyone has any info it would be a big help.

I think www.ram.mc makes a SSS for the 900 also.

Re: VFR swingarm conversion?

I looked at the threads below and they are more 929 specific, nothing for a 900. Thanks anyway

Re: VFR swingarm conversion?

Nice! can it be done on the 929 and if so, what are the negative side effects for handling?

Re: VFR swingarm conversion?

A 929 swingarm bolts to the engine, like a vfr800 swingarm. It may be able to be done using one of them. I don't notice any negative effects on my 900, I actually think it is more stable on the back tire, but that might be in my head.
