Conversions pretty easy, a couple of adapter plates that mount to the RZ
frame,6 spacers and doing the bearings.The VJ22 swingarm is a couple
mm's shorter then the RZ arm so it fit's inside the frame with no mod's
to the pivot tube. As long as your shock has the same bottom attachment
as the stock RGV shock it should work,oh, you also have to make new
dog bones if you use the adapter plates,if you extend the lower frame
bracket then you should be able to use the stock RGV parts. Using the
RGV rear wheel with the stock brake parts will save allot of extra work.
On the one I did for George he wanted to use the NSR 5 sproke wheel,
it works but required machining the brake calipher bracket to about half
the thickness and making wheel spacers for both sides to center the
wheel in the swingarm. If you use the drawings that were posted on this
site a few months ago the patterns for the whole conversion are shown.
There's 2 different plate designs, 1 fixed,1 ajustable, I made the ajustable
for George's, for what little it moves, it's not worth it. Also the drawings
show 3 different options for doing the pivot bearings, I came up with a
different way that was much simpler. If you use the pattern for the
adapter plates take the meassurement and make your own pattern even
though the drawing shows a 1-1 scale . I did this and the pattern is around
a 1/4" larger then the drawing, but the diamensions are all dead on.
Does anyone have a link to these drawings? I have been searching but can't find them
