I thought that roonie's frames were only for monolever swingarms. All of his bikes that I've seen with 11xx swingarms have used reinforced stock frames. ???

Build it! Build it! Build it! You gotta bring it down to the Sandblast Rally for a shake down. My garage is open (about 45 minutes away) for any help you need. I wanna see this thing with back end hanging out and a roost pouring off the rear tire.

And it looks like an 18" rear on the R100 FD, with no shock mount movement.


2 wierd things I'm just noticing are the rear brake arrangemnet and the clutch cablepath. Its run like there was still a frame tube there :lol

Oh.

The clutch cable kind of needs to go under the cylinder. Otherwise it'd make too sharp a turn and maybe need a roller or something. The rear brake looks like the standard way of flipping the rear brake arm on a paralever.

Yeah- they just look like the leftovers.. the things not quite thought through completely, but close enough for practical use

What is it about the 1100 swing arm that works and not one more recent?

a few reasons for not putting 1200 swing arms

  • The final drives are more likely to fail, where the 11XX ones are basically the same design as the paralever ones. (bearing wise).
  • There's also only very tall gear ratio's with the 1200 final drives. The R850's and early R1100RS bikes have got the same ratio as the R80GS and R100GS.

Yeah I think he's saying there is not really a choice of where it goes.

I just noticed it hanging out in front of hte cylinder. THat kind of free wire is the kind of thing that gets snatched by the wait-a-minute- bush

Gotcha....assuming because there is no frame there to protect it. I've met that "wait-a-minute-bush"......she was a pill. Discuss.....
