I am in the process of doing a centre shock conversion with a R1 shock
first if you want regional advice you need to say where you are...........

and 2 the R1 shock is 15 mm too long for a centre shock mod. how are you dealing with the extra length.

:laugh

I wont It would mean spoiling my arse end on the bike and making a new undertray! plus all the havoc of moving the battery :laugh

I'm looking at getting a R1 shock to get revalved but the next weak link is the SOAS!

That's where the shock conversion is good, junk the soas,
Might have a gap tray kicking around somewhere, and adstl offers them for a good price
And a battery will still fit under seat, there's someone on a recent thread who laid the battery down under the rear seat catch

I haven't studied this thread stu but is fitting the r swingarm to an s. Needed to have an exhaust cut out? Aren't people mounting without that fabrication? Like I said this s model thing is new to me

No fabrication needed if using a tlr exhaust
Which a few have done
But I'll be using a.braced tls arm with mounts moved

taz, i have a tlr swingarm that is modded to suit the std tls exhaust that you can have for the cost of shipping if you like?
wow that is a very nice offer deft. but im probably not needing it as i have just bought a TLR swing arm that was already fitted to an S and a full Yoshi system that was fitted to the same bike, apparently the system is an S one and the swingarm hasnt been modified so im a bit lost there really ? ( unless the headers are actually off an R ) i might need a picture of each system so i can compare

why did u remove this swingarm:O

the reason it fits is that when the r came out yoshi ditched the original s collector and just used the r version for both bikes, i had to modify my swingarm because the yoshi collector i have is one of the original s versions that ran in the same layout as the std s system so it wouldnt clear the tlr swinger.


I removed the tlr swing arm so i could put my Yamaha R1 swing arm on:devious, just copying steve's tlr:hail, na i brought some R1 wheels and it was nice and neat to have the R1 swing arm and all factory stock bits on it.

The swingarm looks good it suits the bike I have just put a tlr swingarm on my tls with R1 shock. There are just a few things im needing advise about as I have had a 1100 lbs spring put on it ,but when I sit on the bike im on tip toes the same as I was before. I weight 92 kgs with all me kit on the seat height is 820 mm at its lowest point when the bike is stood up , and its meant to be 835 mm . When I push the back of the bike down there is 25 mm left before it hits the bump stop , and that's where it stops as it wont go down anymore . I just wont to no if I need to put on a much stiffer spring , and I have also used 38 mm spacers each side of the shock at the top do I need to make them a lot thinner any advise from u guys would be very grateful thanks
