This is what i came up with.
...which you need for 02 swingarm-rebuilt for 00/01 Models 89 $
Or to lighten your existing sleeve,which is made from steel.
2 Versions available:
- I : If you have dissembled your Engine ,then it's easy just to mount the sleeve as it is
-II : if your Engine is mounted,I can machine the sleeve slightly (does not hurt the Function),
that your able to press the sleeve into crankcase without removing the Engine
Parts & Prices
So is it better to just buy Durbin kit? Does his have this same mod?The sleeve is 25mm OD and the RHS spacer is only 27mm so the tightening force of the spindle is carried only on that 1mm ring around the circumference of the spacer where it contacts the engine cases. After much pondering, I decided on the following:-
2 identical sleeves 20mm ID, 25mm OD for 85mm with 3mm thick x 31mm OD flange at one end (88mm total sleeve length)
These are inserted into each side of the engine, but the flange on the right now means there is not enough space to fit the swing-arm, so replace the steel spacer beside the right hand swing-arm bearing, (originally 23mm long) with a 20mm version (aluminium should be fine, it only runs in a seal, not the bearing), which ensures the overall length is now as original.
i've pinched this from another post. having done the swing arm swap myself, using the spacer dimensions waldo has posted above, the bike wallows in fast sweepers and sends the handlebars into a predictable steady shake. this is due to the lack of contact area.
the above is the correct way to do this mod, hope this helps Ben.
