    I'm glad I wasn't the only one confused I've been tied up with work and haven't been on here in a few days. That arm with a bird motor would be one helluva cool bike! To answer your original question about how the bird motor effected handling...I don't do curves so can't answer that part. You can tell there's 40 extra lbs of weight there. But it's low and forward feeling. I'd imagine it would still carve a curve pretty damn well. It'd DEFINITELY handle some straight roads

    Keep looking, you'll find one. Over the winter I'm going back in there and rotating motor a few more degrees towards rear of bike so I can squeeze fan for radiator in there. It should be done before you get ready to install yours.

    Hey guys,

    I'm baaack!

    Just for anyone that's interested, I still have my VFR750 SSA and VFR800 rear wheel for sale. Has been sitting in the garage. The whole setup is ready to bolt on and includes hidden brake line, spacer, axle, black caliper, Galfer wave rotor and pads, chain guard and Vortex 45T 520 rear sprocket. The arm is black powdercoated, and the wheel was brand new when I bought it in 2005 (since then, I have only done about 1500 miles on the whole setup). I fully rebuilt the arm with all new bearings, o-rings and seals when I put it on the bike too. USD$1K the lot (plus freight).

    Will throw in the chain tensioning tool, swingarm bolt socket and the swingarm remover tool as well. $60 more will get you a near new RK 520 GXW X-ring gold chain sized to suit the arm (with brand new, unstaked masterlink) and 16T 520 front sprocket. Price it up: You could not buy all these pieces for anywhere near what I am selling the whole kit for.

    If anybody wants a straight frame, I also have my black powdercoated 95 frame setup for the 96-99 bodywork available (and I will give you the clean title to the bike).

    Cheers,
    Sime

    PS. Thinking of getting a '10 1000RR C-ABS. Might be back on a Honda!

    I think it's fair.

    If you had to buy everything separately as I did:

    Rear wheel: $485
    Wheel nuts: $30
    Swingarm: $450 (and maybe more to get a good one!)
    Rear sprocket: $50
    Brake rotor (wave): $140
    Brake pads: $40
    Custom made braided brake line: $85
    Caliper: $90
    Bearings/seals: $100
    Spacer: $25
    Powdercoating of arm: $110
    Chain guard: $25
    Swingarm remover tool: $45
    Chain tensioner tool: $30
    Shipping from all the different vendors I bought parts from: $80 approx

    That's $1785 all up, and doesn't take into account any labor costs for rebuilding the hub and brake caliper, and all the time I spent researching where to buy the parts etc.

    So, does $1k seem a little more fair now?

    Work, work and more work!

    Been working 7 days for the last 6 months. We had a major hail storm back in March so it's been all guns blazing since then.

    That's why I'm able to buy a bike now.

    Hope you've been keeping well Johnny!

    Concentrate on finding that motor!!! A stock length RR with that motor would be KILLER!! Last week mine was picking wheel up in 2nd and headshaking through first 4 gears...and I'm stretched 12". I can't imagine how much fun a stock length one would be. Look harder damn it!!

    No idea on swingarm. Motor alone adds 40 lbs.

    You would think you might loose some weight with the arm, not much ofcourse. I wish I would have weighed them.
