At the weekend I got around to fitting the Mille swingarm I had with the bike.

All in all the job was pretty easy except removing the rear exhaust bolts which were a fiddly PITA.

I also fitted the Mille triangle links by accident (because I didn't know no better) which raised the rear miles too high.



Treated myself to a new chain and sprokets too.

All in all I'm very pleased with the look of it :)

Couldn't you leave the pipe in place?

Only if you can get the bottom part of the pipe off, I tried to lever it out but there was not enough play

Hi I note that it has been some time since you have put the RSV swing arm in the SL1000 (falco). How does this handle? Do you know if the Ohlins front end and rear shock from a 2004 Factory would fit straight into an SL??

when you say 2004 factory do you mean gen2 ?????? The front end fits ....as long as you have the matching ohlins yokes as your old forks are 53mm and ohlins 51mm top diameter....you can't mix and match gen1 and gen2 yokes as they have a different offset....2.5mm disc spacers required to put the discs central in the calipers.

You may or may not need brake lines

The shock will bolts in sure you need to use the gen2 triangles and dogbone I'll post a link for more info

Yes the first of Gen 2, I have the whole bike and was thinking of taking the whole front end and putting it on the Falco? I cant use the factory on the road here due to the laws in relation to written off bikes!!
