I'm happy to say one of our big projects is finally done, with the help of some very talented people.

We've been working on producing a Superbike-spec swingarm that we originally saw on the Milwaukee Yamaha that dominated the BSB series last year. They are now being used by practically every factory backed Yamaha superbike or endurance team. We'd gotten information that these arms increased rear grip and exit drive without negatively impacting handling, so naturally we were interested.

After a lot of R&D and some time, the first unit is now complete! It allows for a little over 20mm of additional wheelbase, while retaining the ability to operate within the stock range, unlike other arms we have seen.

We immediately fitted the arm with Lacomoto swingarm covers and a FFR rear quick change kit with Lightech chain adjusters and a chain tab.
