Title: Is it possible to put a CBR600RR swingarm on the CB-1
Post by: kamikazerick on October 05, 2018, 05:52:45 AM
Hello everyone,

My name is Rick i am from The Netherlands and since may this year i am a proud owner of a Honda CB-1. The previous owner of the bike has put CBR600 wheels on it and it looks really nice but it still has de original swingarm. The problem with that is it does not fit well, when i changed tires it was fitted with al lot of rings to make it fit in the CB-1 swingarm.

Now was my question, is it possible to put a cbr600 swingarm on the CB-1? and if its possible how much work does it take?

Everything is possible with a big enough hammer. But I think that idea takes a pretty big hammer. That's from a guy who has nc29 arm fitted.

Would be a whole lot easier to just make better spacers for the wheel you already have.

Hi,

Does anyone maybe has te measurements from a original CB-1 swingarm. That way i can check the possibilties without taking the swingarm from my bike.

Thanks in advance,

Rick
