Damn that sexy ass Swingarm on the 09 ZX6R..

juts like the 10R and as soon as some individual crashes or parts it out i am going to do the conversion, like the 03/05 brothers have done before us.

Nothing like a new project.

Wow, i was actually thinking the exact same thing JD, took a look at the 09 swingarm, and said I must have it!

Looks like a works swingarm eh?

I wonder how it would affect the geometry of the bike, if at all. I'd like to see it done, I was thinking about doing that too.

should be notciably stiffer, the geometry would be easy enough to change, just a matter of seeing the clearance of the shock reservoir.

Bringing this thread back to life as I just found it... I'm keeping an open eye because come February (birthday time), I better have one sitting in my bedroom. So damn sexy and will look even better than the '05-'08 arms. I'm glad I've waited this long to do the swap.

Now I have to decide whether to do gunmetal wheels ('05-'06) or gloss black wheels ('07-'08).

Yea, I was going to look into the 10 swingarm too, but I was pretty sure from what I've read, it's not all the same.

any of those 2 swingarms still have the bit for the bobbins on them ?
mine is broken on one side and bent on the other so if you're selling I might grab one of them

both are in almost new condition with the spool mounts on them as you are asking.
like anything in life things are always for sale.
Shoot me a Pm if you want one and yes i will ship overseas, though from looking at ebay overseas you may be better off getting it there, as not sure on shipping something of this size.

last time i shipped some Slip-on mufflers to sweden it was pretty pricey.

had mine rewelded on after a driveway incident when i brought it home, bike was brand new and a tip over in the driveway WTF?

i recall people thought i was crazy for bitching about how the peice snapped right off.
had it rewelded and crashed on track and it stayed put just fine.
How time flies
