R6 chain guard on top, RZ500 on the bottom.

Not sure if the RZ500 chain guard can be fitted to the tubular arm. May want a custom guard.

Thinking about having a tool made for the custom arm.

Aluminum collar about 1.5 inch wide and .125 thick to slip over the rear axle. Weld a tab on the side with 2 holes. Bolt on a length of aluminum bar that replicates the circumfrence of the tire.

Would help with placement of the upper brace, and the crossbar between the 2 lower arms.

Might even be able to place a piece on the end of the bar that simulates the curve of the tread.

Interesting ideas from the R6 arm. Just throwing them out.

The lower crossbar is curved with the same radius as the upper brace. The lower crossbar is the same distance from the tire as the upper brace. The upper brace sticks out about 3 inches further than the lower crossbar, due to the circumfrence and location of the tire.

Image

The 2 supports that go from the lower crossbar to the upper brace could also be curved like the R6 arm, conforming to the curvature of the tire.

Image

The special tool should make this easier to fabricate.

Swingarm parts finally arrived.

Took a while, but still amazing to get new parts for a 32-year-old bike.

One off titanium kickstand bolt.

Looks like the one I made for the RZ350, but the shaft and thread lengths are slightly different.

OEM vs. Ti:
