Nice. I noticed the different swingarm right away, but then only just realized that the whole rear suspension setup is different!

Varment, I think the gas tank is original! Don't see much else though :grin:

From what I understand, those pictures were taken at Mid Ohio a few weeks back.
It's a R6 swingarm. They were fighting set up issues. Bikes said to make 90hp.

i'd heard about the 650r being used as a flat-tracker but hadn't seen any pics of it yet, until now. :drool :drool

A guy called me last week about us building him an engine for a flat tracker.
If it works out, I have some pictures of it when it's done.
The guy that built the one in the picture is a douche bag, that likes to steal other
peoples ideas, and claim them to be his. :fool

I don't see an advantage to the swingarm except to maybe allow the under tail exhaust.
If it's lighter OK I'm sold, but I would want to see the comparison.
90hp is totally achievable if you open up the heads and get some more flow in there, maybe some high comp pistons, cams, and race gas.
All it takes is money. :mrgreen:

an aluminum swingarm will almost definitely be lighter than the steel oem one.

the geometry is different, so it ends up being about 5lbs lighter overall.

And you go through all the work of making it fit, then bring it to a race with much exposure, only to be way off on your set up.
Or you could just bolt on a Versys swingarm and go.
The swingarm has nothing to do with ease of making an undertail exhaust.
It's the custom sub frame that allows for that.

Not only is it lighter, but it's
constructed better,leading to less flex.

Gary,
Aren't you curently doing a Versys swingarm project.
Unless I'm mistaken, you were going to run one on your personal bike?
