1100 1990 slingshot swing arm and shock replacement


Recommended Posts

Good day, I'm looking for info on geometry of replacing the back shock and swingarm on a 1990 gsxr1100, I currently have a gen 1 busa with a k3 rear shock half installed but, would like to know from someone that has done this before what to look out for.  inbound2048677269543395782.thumb.jpg.4568a21529822040e34d73c9a2ce8878.jpg

The length of the rear shock of the GSXR 1100 1990 is 312 mm. The length of hayabusa rear shock is 330 mm. The bike is going to be heavy at the front with the hayabusa rear shock.

is the hayabusa shock really that light ??? O.o

So you do not realize that you transfer more weight to the front by raising the bike at the back with a longer rear shock? :-)

Sorry for the late response, it's a huyabusa swing arm with k3 rear shock.

The bike is 1990 1127, I'm not going to raise the ass In the air. I. Busy making a template / bracket to move the shock into the correct position. Then with adjustable dog bones het the correct height, I was just wondering if theirs some info on guys that has done this before.im planning to get a  bullet bracket  made when everything works.inbound1805632632260578316.thumb.jpg.d1abd809352ec0ce4e16264db399d14a.jpg
