Thumbs up 04-06 F4i Banana Seat 600rr Swingarm Conversion

Finally got around to doing the swingarm conversion ive been debating on doing for months. I thought it was going to look horrible with a banana seat. But looking as though i <3 the banana seat. I gotta keep it!

Taking old swingarm off





No more booty


BUT ITS BACK!!






Putting on Rim n stufffff





Gotta get a new brake line, I thought my old one will fit since it was braided and not OEM

And now to put on chain and tighten everything up


END RESULTS



I know I know I need a set of plastics, but im still in the process of rebuilding. Full exhaust is coming on soon, and want to get those things out the way before I get plastics last. <3

Mostly bling factor, but its also beefier and coupled with the 1000rr shocks, with better valves and rebounds; it does well on roads. Takes a lil more effort to turn in corners now, but not bad at all. I like to mod, and I plan on keeping this bike and want it to look more modern.

Is it a 600rr swingarm with 1000rr shocks or will other swingarms work as well?

I seen some people use a VFR single side swingarm, and 1000rr swingarms. Anything is possible. I chose this because its really just bolt on and go (with a few modifications)

I was about to ask why you had an F4 shock on to begin with, then I saw the final pic and relized it was a project lol.
Oh and banana FTW!!!! But since you went with RR swingarm, your obviously into look factor more then anything else so split seat is your only choice.
