It wasn't that hard, if you have access to machines to machine stuff and make parts,
it was more of taking your time and measuring stuff than it being hard.

I picked up the swingarm,wheel etc. for about $600 and then I had to machine stuff and make stuff.
Then I got everything powdercoated.

A single sided swingarm is not meant for weight loss. To achieve the same rigidity of a standard swingarm they need to be thicker and bigger. Read about the new 1098 and you'll see. However with the right stuff (like the 1098) you can make it very light.

Its really nothing more than looks, and in some cases it was design for speedy wheel changes. Nothing else.

Personally I think they look great. Specially on undertail or left side exhaust bikes.

If it cost less than about 4+ grand total (SSSA + wheels) to do, I'd do it. I pulled this from another thread. Funny how this stuff can cost that much to fab up. I spent about $1000 in spacers, because I wanted them done TODAY. So I had to pay extra. Trial and error, trial and error. I now have it done right. Kept having to make the spacers to move the sssa over 1/8 at a time!!! lol.

I see that you did the same thing that I did. I had to have someone machine me a special spacer/nut/threaded/thing for the left side of the bike. and another spacer for the right side of the bike.
I have 2 7r's with sssa!!!!!!
