    Custom made Swingarm inner panel?

    Hello Vmax guys. I'm new here and have a questions :ummm: Yamaha offer a wide tire rim (240 tire) but the original Swingarm inner plate must be removed. I don't like the shaft drive is exposed for dirt and water. :damn angry: Have someone manufactured a slim inner panel plate?

    Which tool

    Ok, I'm FINALLY looking at changing out the swing arm with bearings, etc. So the allen bolt on the right side gets torqued to 4.3 inch lbs. What tool do yall use? The lowest that I can see an inch lb torque going down to is 6 in lbs.

    Venture and Vmax Swingarm comparison?

    I have a 1200 Venture and I'm in the process of doing a 17" radial swap. I'm grafting the venture center hub in to a ZX7 rim and am at the very early stages.

    Swingarm bolts question

    If I swap the adjustable bolt from the right side to the left side will the one-piece bolt push the swingarm farther to the left? I need to get this rear wheel moved over towards the left so it's centered better. Right now if I let go of the bars I make a pretty decent left lane change. I'd like...

    Stock swingarm length

    Would someone be kind enough to provide an accurate measurement from a stock swingarm? It would be easiest if it was not mounted. I would like to know the dimension shown in the attached photo.

    Center stand hitting swingarm.

    Since I replaced my stock exhaust with a full exhaust and added a notched and braced swingarm, I noticed that the center stand touches the swingarm. Since there is nothing holding it lower, it keeps hitting it. The small rubber I guess is there for avoid bumping the stock exhaust, but in my...

    Extended Swingarm Issues

    Hey all, I have a 3" extended swingarm I am putting on my Max. It was under braced and welded locally. I went to assemble it the other day and the axle is binding. Apparently during the welding, the swingarm shrank about 0.35" as compared to the stock swingarm. I took it to a body shop friend...
