Default 1998-2004 Kawasaki ZX6R / 2005-2008 Kawasaki ZZR600 Swingarm conversion kit

This started off as a personal project to make my swingarm fit while utilizing
my stock wheels. I work at a machine shop so, this is what my projects
often look like. This bracket and bushing kit is well thought out and precise
to give trouble free installation. It is designed to be strong where a modified
stock bracket couldn't. We are making sets up for those that want them.
We have the program set up and ready to run, so all kits are made to order.
Selling this is mostly to offer the convenience of the kit.

Additional parts needed to complete swingarm conversion to newer style swingarm:

- Swingarm of your choice with matching axle. '05-'06 swingarms are the same length as factory, '07-'08 swingarms are 10mm longer than factory.
- 17" brake line (1996-1998 Suzuki RM125 line works. Factory line may work with aftermarket rearsets)
- Recommend that you use newer ('05+) style Showa shock and linkage. Superior shock and added clearance.


**PROFESSIONAL INSTALLATION RECOMMENDED**

Our website checkout is up or you can make orders directly through me here. I will be on here to check PM's often.

Order information can be found at
Low Country Machining - Products


If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Yeah it does seem a little high Larry, but on the flipside, isn't it a cheaper option than buying a rear wheel with all the trimmings to fit?
(I honestly don't know the wallet damage it causes)

@ OP, I think lowering the cost to about a bill would definitely help with sales and make this a hotter product.

actually, for the design of it, you could make the bracket from a single piece of thinner stock. The "hump" for locator tab really is overkill...cut down on the thicker material and cost of that.

Cutting down that "hump" is not an option. It compromises structural integrity of the bracket.
My name (and "butt") is attached to this bracket and I will only stand behind a quality product
even if it costs me a little more to do so. The bracket is made from 6061-T6 Alcoa aluminum and
the bushings are made from 304 stainless steel to keep them looking great forever and resisting
wear from the bearing seal and debris.

The bracket price is rather cheap considering the machine time it takes to make this thing. It
is very thin in one spot and has to be set up precisely.$190 is a great deal considering a set of
newer wheels easily go for $450+ not including tire mount and balance.

I have to sell a few before pricing can come down. I have sold 7 kits so far including a hard
anodized black one someone paid extra to have.
