Default single sided swingarm!

just wondering if a single sided swing arm from a Honda RVF400-NC35 fit a R6 99

what mods would be needed, is it worth it?

Thanks in advance for any inputs

the rear tyres are 150/60 or 160/60

even if u fit ducati rims, 160 is the max

The Ram's single sided swingarm looks way better than tobefast.

Is there any advantage to having a SSSarm? I am assuming less unsprung weight?

There are also issues with them. From what i have read, they are not as rigid as a standard swingarm. I would thing that with the frame stiffness of the 06/07 frame that a single sided swing arm would not be a performance way to go. You would end up with a frame that flexes very little, but a swingarm that is quite flexable. If you looking for a bike night bike tho, im sure its all that and a bag of chips, and a pack o rubbers.
