I remember seeing some stuff on here too (or perhaps it was via Google....) If I remember correctly it was a bolt on switch but you have to get a ton of parts. Caliper, axle, wheel, swingarm etc. etc. There is also a guy on youtube who did it, perhaps look for the vid and ask him.

This guy did it on a F3, Maybe he might be able to help you with the basics of it.

A few months ago some guy on eBay sold an entire VFR swingarm with wheel, tire, caliper, disc, etc, etc but i didnt had enough money to buy it. So these days ive been searching but nothing.

I know that you have to fab some things but i dont care, i want that swingarm on my bike!!!!

What's the benefit or reasoning for a single sided swing arm?

Besides personal preference (looks)? None...

Well, you can remove the rear wheel easier..
