This would be the reason for the spacer in the back of the motor. The reason others have done this and it has worked was they had all the SP2 hardware. The SP2 hardware screws into the frame. The SP2 hardware then centers and supports the smaller pivot bolt so the swingarm does not move around. If you do not have the spacer in the back of the motor, the motor could still move around.

That is my understanding for the needed spacer in the back of the motor. I would bet that the collars in the swingarm are also smaller. They may not press against the motor very well without the spacer.


Exactly, you could bolt the swingarm in without the spacer but the engine would not be supported by anything, you must put the spacer in.

In fact you need all the hardware bolt/spacer/collars/ ect the the whole SP2 Kit to do it properly

Yup, that's the definitive answer. Thanks for clarifying everyone. I will tweak the document and repost.

Thanks everyone! Ride safe!

Update as of 03.21.10: docs have been edited, and a white background version added.

I am finally getting around to installing a 03 swingarm in a 00 frame. I am a little confused at this point. Old swingarm and related parts have been removed. I went to put the new swingarm in but the below parts are too small to screw into the frame. What am I missing?

Part Number: 52108-MCF-D30
Description: BOLT, R. for 2002 Honda RVT1000R

Part Number: 52109-MCF-D30
Description: BOLT, L. for 2002 Honda RVT1000R

I did some measuring and the old SP1 parts are 36mm. The parts list says the new are supposed to be 36mm. I'm not sure what came with the swingarm I bought. They measure at 28mm.

New parts on order.

I'm in the middle of doing this swap as we speak. The rear exhaust tube has to be removed in order to pull the sp1 swingarm off. But my concern at this point is that I have all original SP2 Hardware sleeve everything and when I put it all together static just on the swingarm before installation I have a fat eighth inch of play from side to side. My question is will the frame and swingarm compress enough to take out that play and if so which side is the sleeve supposed to go in on?
