Re: sss conversion

If you are talking about a VFR single sided swingarm conversion, you're gonna have more problems trying to fit a stock 900 rear rim to it than it just clearing the arm.
I know there is a website documenting someone doing this, but I don't remember it off the top of my head. If I find it I'll post it.

You could do the easy way, and fit a VFR wheel, or do it differently, and fit a Ducati wheel or one from any number of aftermarket manufacturers. Or Get a SSS kit from RAAM and do it the $$$$ way.

You need to use the VFR rim too. It's like a car rim.

And then there's this asshole...

It must be. I think it's too much money + work to replace something that already works great. That is - unless a crash was involved and parts need to be replaced anyway.

I can't say anything. There's not much on my bike that hasn't been altered.

Re: sss conversion

From what I've heard you gain about 20 lbs and lose some rigidity with the single sided swingarm. Strictly bling factor, although I do like the look. As far as maintance, maybe, but instead of buying a regular rear stand, you have to buy one for a single sided swingarm, which I think are more costly? I think the process of making chain adjustments get a little messy too?
