The Aprilia Mille swingarm I'm using is very wide up front. My pics are all on Photobucket. I'll have to take more.Smoker wrote:Interesting.

The frame does not need to be chopped to use the R6 arm, just minor modifications, like moving the YPVS motor, and maybe removing a small bracket.
I would be chopping to fit straight pipes. Even if straight pipes would fit without chopping, I may want to get rid of the curved support tubes. They look kind of weird without the pipes on the outside. We'll see.
I misunderstood why you are chopping the frame at first.
