A few weeks ago in bought an alloy swingarm, the guy who sold it to me said it was for a F650 but I wanna try if its fits a F650GS. I've heard it is made by Nico Bakker for Schalber;

Nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Sparqq,

That looks the business!!!!!

Can you please measure up the size of the side rails and the shock mounts (and every thing else if you have the time)

What does it weigh?

Damian

I weighs around 4kg, the steel stock is 6kg???

I measured the inner distance of the fork, where the wheel is mounted, it is 2cm tighter then stock. I didn't measure other dimensions yet. I will try to do it this week.

It is only 1 picture, and a good one. Not a dig at you Sparqq

But from what I can see you are missing some pieces.
To me it looks like the OEM shock linlages will not work on that swing arm. I could be wrong.

But yes please, as much info and dimensions as possible.

I will make some good pictures with the measurements.

Indeed i'm missing the link system, so I will get in contact with the builder of the swingarm to get these.

Very nice, I love the custom fabrication and seeing options for better swingarms

I had to take out my shock absorber for a revision so I could try to fit ALU swing arm. Unfortunately it doesn't fit, the seller told me it is for a F650, it turns out that this swing arm is not wide enough for a F650GS. I think it is useless to make the measurements.....

Bummer. Any idea what it is from?
Have you wasted money on the swing arm?

I've heard it is made by Nico Bakker http://www.bakker-framebouw.nl/ for Schalber, but don't know if it's true.

I didn't spend that much money on it and try to sell it on ebay, I think some Germans will like it.

I will make some detailed pics and post them here, so it will help your design.

Thanks Sparqq

That's great.
Do you perhaps have the measurements of the box section used?

Thumb Proper GSingle Alloy Swingarm

Been looking for this alloy swingarm mod and thread for a long, long time now Damian-74. Thank you, I sense capable movement on this issue. Much thanks too for the progress lath & mill pics re: the GS/DRZ swap, not to mention Aquatics 3D modeling illustrations. Jakubs TT & Factory swingarm pics prove the alloy work has been done, if not trickled down.

Was disappointed to find no movement from BMW on suspension in general when the Sertao was debuted, you know, to upgrade too.

In the mean time, I'm stretching the simple steel rectangular box channel .82" to better clear an 18" wheel and 130/80 18 DOT knobby. I'm in the middle of the Emig Dakar/KTM Clamp build up front, as it's still cheeper for me to buy that clamp kit & KTM forks than buy a 3 point mill and garage space to work. I have requests for rake angles in to Gary, but hope the rake is closer to the KTM 63.5° than the stock Dakar at 61° to keep the wheelbase at or below 58.5" even after I stretch the swingarm.

Starting to Look Like a Bike Again

Suspension back in – Ohlins all round - 46HRCS in the back and MX46 inverted forks - had MPE in the Sunshine Coast play with the forks and shock. http://www.mpesuspension.com.au/

New bushes/ bearing in all the swing arm and linkage arms and the wheels back on.

Relaced a 18” to the STD hub

Replaced every bolt that I could get reach to rid myself of those dam TX bolts – can’t print what I really think about those things!

Complete lack of time at the moment so the Ally swing arm will have to wait – but it is on the project list – Her list and mine are starting to clash – something about not wanting to have to jump over the bottom two rotten steps on the veranda – Women , want everything!

Have started to build the ally subframe to take the standard fuel tank – using a DR650 rear guard and a cut down STD seat. Queensland Transport offers Single Seat registration which is half that of two seater registration

“Seating modifications Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance premiums on motorcycles are determined by the seating capacity of the motorcycle. Conversion of a motorcycle from a two-seater to a single-seater, or vice versa, can be certified by an Approved Person.
For two-seats to single-seat conversion the maximum length of the upholstered section of the seat must be
500 mm or less, and the pillion foot pegs must be removed with any associated brackets and threaded
holes drilled out. You are not permitted to use a removable cowl or other structure fitted over the seat to
reduce the length of the seat. Seating modifications are approved under the Code of Practice; you should seek
advice from an Approved Person before performing a seat reduction modification”


Hope to have it on the road in the next few weeks – depending on what else she adds to the list!

Indicator lights

Finished my warning light block.
Used LED’s and components form Jcar - http://www.jaycar.com.au/
Ally diecast housing, nutsert’s, selection of LED’s and resistors, micro relay (for the coolant light) and a potting compound to keep it all from shaking itself to death.
