Well Thayleal, my fiancee was my gf at one time too. Lil story bout her.

I said I wanted to sell my bike, along with a few other things, to help with the cost of the wedding.

She told me not to do it. Because she knows, understands, and accepts that I love motorcycling. I was doing it before I met her, am going to do it now, and prolly will be doing it if she ever leaves. She wants me to be happy and knows getting rid of my bike wouldnt make me happy..

What a gal!!!!

Seriously I should be spending this money on getting my track bike ready for next season

But the poser in me is starting to get the best of me.
If that is what you are after then pick up that tricked out bus a

Yeah. This will be on my street bike. I have another SV I am getting ready for the track. I guess the next question is since I am changing rear ends should I try to find another rear shock or just turn the stock one stiffer.

Yeah I was searching on there. Looks like all the single side swingarm writeups are on Generation 1s. At least all the ones I found.

what you need to be aware of, and what your not being told is how poorly the rear suspension will perform without some very specialist input....

Suspension linkage ratios and mounting points are pretty critical to good performance, it's not just a case of getting the arm to fit

just giving you a heads up

There's a bunch of critical dimensions you need to be mindful of:
Swing arm width at the bearings, frame width where the swin arm must mount, pivot shaft diameter, shock angle and mounting, especially on the second gen with the battery limiting angle to the top mount, and chain alignment.
That's just to start with, not including affects on geometry and suspension.
I've done a few sssa conversions on bikes ranging from a 900rr to a Sprint Ride Smart, none of them were what I'd call easy and there are a lot of details that need to be addressed for the end product to not just be rideable but also be a competent handling motorcycle. I'm not trying to rain on your parade, just pointing out some potential issues.

Patrick, I appreciate the input. I think I have alot of the measurements to make it fit done but I am more worried about the geometry and handling at this point. Not sure how to go about compensating for that. I am an Electrical engineer... soo Mechanical Engineering and Design somewhat escapes me.
