i got a gs1100 swing arm for some harley parts that i had. it needs the bearings and all, but it came with the axle and all the spacers. bike bandit has all the bushings and bearings, it will set me back almost $80.
so to my question, i have seen using a gs1100 swing arm on a kz650 not a big deal, but everyone uses the gs shocks or somthng similar. cant you use the stock kz ones? i know it is set up for a clevis lower mount, but looking at the kz swing arm i see a little tab that the bolt goes through? so my question is why cant i do something like that? or just run a grade 8 bolt with a lock nut? sounds like it could work?
please give me your input, or tell me i'm nuts and dont do it.
