    F2/F3 rear swingarm on a Hawk

    Has anyone seen this done? I was thinking for weight savings.

    but then you'd lose the ultra-trick single!

    and if you do I'm not helping with those rear wheel swaps

      From the Hawk list.

      hord,
      I've been looking at different swingarms for a clubman racebike project. The
      600rr swinger is almost an inch too wide, but there is some room to machine the
      pivot bosses to make it fit. Not saying it'll be easy, just mildly possible.
      R1 is too wide by almost an inch and a half. gsxr 600 without the bracing is
      close, but it is longer than the stock swinger. F2/F3 will fit with new
      bearings and spacers, and is a lot lighter than stock even though its steel. F2
      has a little more room to work with. That's what I'm going with for mine. Not
      as sexy as the others, but easier to do. Shock is easier to work out on the
      F2/3 because the linkage mount is on top of the swingarm and can be modified
      easily to mount the hawk shock... I really wanted that 600rr unit link to work
      for the sexy factor alone.
