919 and 600RR swing arm

Has anyone entertained the idea of putting a 600RR swing arm onto a honda 919. I am not sure if the measurements are the same but just wondering if the distance of the rearwheel to the frame on both bikes is the same. Help me out if you can. Thanks

It is woodyeee . . . in a different thread he posted about the project, and here is his post. Sounds like a lot of work to me.

I love the look of the cbr600rr swingarm thats why i did it, plus i hadnt seen another 919 with the same setup at the time i did mine i almost forgot to add that i had to cut the header pipes and make a custom 4/2/1 exhaust that sits next to the swingarm like the cbr600rr, you can only use a single sided exhaust with this setup... i also resited the rectifier and made a couple of spacers for the cast aluminium footrests

I do wonder if Spondon (SP?) in England have a template for a spunky 9er swingarm - someone must have ordered one.

Maybe I should email.


600 Hornet one. They do make the yummiest single sided ones.

I saw this one at a local bike meet about a year ago.....i dont know who made it.

I know Harris performance did this one.

and i know who did this one.......


If you really wanted a trick swingarm you could get yours braced...ive seen some that have had a brace cut from another swingarm and welded back onto theirs.
