Single sided swingarm question

So this is a call out to anyone else who has this conversion. I bought what may be the original one I think Brian Light did. I bought it from Eric (Leeds I think) in VA.

Anyway I am having stuctural issues with the built linkage on it & was hoping someone could send me a pic of the setup that they have. My issue is that the place where the hawk has a stout dogbone link, this has a tubular aluminum piece that is elongating at the bottom.

I have a bike builder/mechanic friend who is going to fab me up a piece to solve the problem but can anyone who is riding an SSS modded bike send me a pic of what you are running?

Another side note is that with the sss, the shock needs to be like 1 1/4 inches longer to get geometry that will make the bike handle the way it should. (or at all for that matter.

Any help would be.....helpful. Thanks guys.

Man, I knew I was unique but am I the lone soldier? When I do the rebuild I was thinking of putting together some more link bones to sell as kits to do the conversion.

Someone else has to have this done......

102dals is an unknown quantity at this point
I'd do a search. Brian actually showed up on Eric's sale thread a while back. I'm going to do this, and have acquired most of the parts already. I need my machinist (brother) to do the dogbone for me, but I don't think I have the "schematic" for it anymore.
I'll look, and if I find it, send it to you via PM.
BTW, this is the perfect bike for a single sided arm...Honda should've put one on from the factory.

The guy above you is just bitter, because he has posted on here several times that he really, really wants a lengthened swing arm and quite a few people on this forum are against it and they back it up with a solid reason why he shouldn't do it. He just doesn't understand, so he's going to be against everything else. Reminds me of my little 4 year old nephew.

I agree with you though. The bike looks absolutely fantastic with a SSSA. I want to do it as well, but I'm going to wait until next year when I have more time to play with the bike.
