I have a 600 F3 Front Axle. I don't see why it wouldn't work. If you're interested, let me know.

Thanks & sorry folks. Just purchased one from CBR 600 F4i. They share the same part nos. with that of the 919 so it is the exact same axle. I just bought one off Ebay.

Thanks again.

glad you asked. My recent crash broke the left side pivot bracket. The peg bracket mounting holes broke clean off of the pivot bracket. The pivot bolt for the swing arm goes from the left to the right. So.. to replace the left bracket, I would need to remove the swing arm pivot bolt completely which I really REALLY didn't want to deal with. I looked around for something to slide in from the right to keep it all aligned when I pulled the pivot bolt out. As the bike was on stands, and the front wheel was removed I stumbled across the front axle and said... Hey... wait a minute. Slid the axle in from the right, pulled the pivot bolt from the left, replaced the pivot bracket, reverse procedure. Voila ! All done, 5 minute job, no cussing... Every now and then I get lucky.

The needle bearings on the dog bones on the Tuono dry out easily and yes, they can be a PITA to put back in. Just did this right before the last track day.
