Swingarm spools on a 919?

Being new to my 919 still, I'm not positive about this, but does anyone know if there is a place to install swingarm spools like below on the 919?

You can purchase the weld-on bungs from PitBull, they're available in 6mm and 8mm. I have the 8mm's for mine but haven't installed them yet.

Ah, if the only way to get spools is to have something welded on, I think I'll stick with the swingarm lift that I currently have. I don't weld and don't want to mess with paying someone to weld them on. Thanks for the info.

A local shop should be able to do it for cheap. I have been meaning to get some. The bike always seems to slide off the universal rear stands. Especially when you are trying to break torques.

De Pretto Moto sells chain adjuster covers with spools... I don't have experience with them, though. Also, if you order them, be prepared for some crazy shipping costs.

Man, it's a good thing I don't have much available disposable income right now. I found about $1k of things I want from that website. Funny thing is, it didn't include the spools.

can i ressurect this thread by asking semi_gray to make some of these? With his skills, im sure he cud bang out a couple of these

was just looking at swing arm spools, is welding on bungs stronger than tapping the swingarm? is tapping the swingarm possible?

This is a good way to do it.
Too bad I did not see this before, but maybe they did not exist at the time.
I had blocks made up and welded on to the bottom of the rear billet section just ahead of the axle slot.

I like those Italian jewels a lot and ordered a set. If any of our resident machinists (Semi Gray?) would like to borrow them and make a pattern for the good of the 919 community, I am willing to loan them out before installing them. Send me a PM and we can connect when they arrive.

My understanding with the bolt on ones is that you drill and tap a thread into the side of the swing-arm. However this would rely on the alloy in the arm being a reasonable thickness - anyone chopped a stock swing-arm and measured?

They were stupid expensive and totally an impulse buy. With the air mail and foreign exchange fee on my visa they came to about $225. Now let's hope they fit right and work as expected. I will report back in a week or so as I have to travel today through Thursday.

I tapped, threaded and Loctited mine on about three years ago. Never a problem and very useful and cheap!

VERY INTERESTING (I have a number of CB750s in the garage)
Did you steepen up the steering head angle as part of the grafted on front end?
My eyes suggest that the rear swing arm is many inches longer than the CB750 had. Do my eyes deceive me ? Have you shortened whatever it was you used, to get a similar length ?
What are you going to do with it when you are done ?
I like the monoshock mod.

Sorry but no. I got sucked away on a 5-day trip to the northwest. I'm back, over the jet lag, and should have them installed in a couple of days.

Installed today

I like them. They are well made and thicker than stock so I ended up with slightly fewer exposed threads on the axle. There are still two threads showing so I'm not worried about that.

They will sure be handy if I ever get a stand - hey I said they were an impulse purchase! (Don't ask how I supported the bike in my apartment to get them on) Installation took about 20 minutes total. The test ride to the station to check air pressure in tires took 10.

It's called Gripster and made by a company called TechSpec. It's the "high fusion" pattern, not the snake skin. It's pricey but I liked it better than some of the others because it can be easily removed and stuck right back on without affecting the paint. They have a pattern for the 919 even though it's not listed on their website. I paid around $40 for the two side pieces plus another $12 for the center piece.

Purdy. Are they alloy? How thick are the plates?

Looks like you have heaps of axle within that nut so no issue there.

FlynCycle.com have stands at good prices. Shipping to NZ is a killer though! bawahahaha

Aye -- there's the problem. One of the most important reasons to get the rear wheel off the ground is to remove it for whatever reason. Can't do that with those can you? Kinda negates part of the reason to have them in the first place.

Frankly, a stand like the Phobman or a cobbled together analog is the best of all possible worlds, allowing everything but pulling the motor, and it is positively held in place, making knocking it off the stand practically impossible. And this is coming from someone who does the practically impossible a few times a week!

Rob

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

I must be missing something. Why would the wheel not come off with the bike suspended by the spools? Raise the rear, take out the axle, and the wheel will drop.
