Is it possible to put a single side swing arm on a 2000 Kat 750. Is it possible to have them put on any bike? I wouldnt attempt this on my own for obvious reasons, but trying to think up all the ways possible to customize my ride...if you can do it, is it recommended? pros/cons?

Cons: Major mod, heavier, and decreased performance.

Pros: It looks sweet.

Many 900RR owners have used a swingarm from a VFR to convert to a SSS with very little modding. I don't know where you would start as I don't think Suzuki has ever made a bike with a SSS.

That's what I was thinking, after I made this post. Im sure it can be done somehow, but just dont know how much is involved. But yeah, its mainly just for the looks. Performance mods are coming first..but this is something I was considering doing also.

Here is the list of bikes that Metmachex Engineering does the single swing arm for:

APRILIA - RSV MILLE SP / APRILIA - RSV MILLE R / APRILIA - RSV MILLE
BUELL - M2 CYCLONE / BUELL - S1 WHITE LIGHTNING / BUELL - X-1 LIGHTNING / HONDA - CBR900RR FIREBLADE / HONDA - CBR929RR FIREBLADE
KAWASAKI - ZX6R / KAWASAKI - ZX6R / KAWASAKI - ZX7R / KAWASAKI - ZX9R / SUZUKI - GSXR750 L & M / SUZUKI - GSF1200 BANDIT
SUZUKI - GSXR1100 L/M/N SLINGSHOT / SUZUKI - TL1000R / SUZUKI - TL1000S / SUZUKI - GSXR750W / YAMAHA - FZR1000 EXUP RU
YAMAHA - YZF R6 / YAMAHA - FZR1000 GENESIS / YAMAHA - YZF R1


They look great but to go from what I have now to a single...I think I will stick with the way mine is now. LOL :)

The biggest benefit to a SSSA is that tire/wheel changes are easier. If you're not a track junkie, it probably wouldn't matter.
Even then I still don't see the benefit of doing this mod.

honestly, if I was to seriously consider doing it, its only for looks mainly..but there's so much to consider when doing this, besides just the actual work for the SSS, that's its not really worth, unless I had a ton of money to dump into making this just a pure show bike..so eh, cant do that quite yet.. :lol:

If you dumped all that money into your bike and haven't gotten the women her bike yet...I do not want to be around for that one. Better get her a bike first and then do your bike. LOL :)

uummm...hello, my wife isnt like, well, we wont quite go there right now.....there's priorities here.. :smilelol: but really, she'll get her bike when she's ready for it..she'll take her test and then we'll go from there. I had her sitting on a 94 (i think) kat, down by my house, and it fits her right, so atleast we have a starting point now..
