Attempting the R1 Bracket Mod

I am about to attempt the R1 bracket modification to my ‘06 CB 600F swingarm and am wondering if anyone has any advice or photos they can share. I found a few older posts with great pictures but hoping to see/read more.

Any advice on where to cut the R1 brace or how to position it to clear my rear shock? Anything else to consider while I’ve got it apart?

I’m doing this strictly for cosmetic purposes because I have always thought the stock swingarm was the least appealing part of my bike.

Got an ‘06 CB600F and a ‘99 R1 swingarm off eBay. Cut the R1 brace off and have started trimming it to fit onto the CB600F.

Once my beefy swingarm is built I’d like to modify the hugger to fit snugly under the R1 brace.

Your bike looks so much better with the snugger-fitting exhaust.

Did you build the rear plate/taillight hugger, or start with some existing parts?
