What link spacer? Can I still use the srad shock? The busa swingarm doesn't have the bearings. Think the srad bearings would work?

The 01+ 750 and 1k swingarms as well as the busa arms are much stronger and have a top brace.

So if I can use a 04-05 swingarm I can do away with the brake caliper brace? Can I use all of my hardware with it?

Not to go on about this, I just wanna make sure I have it right. 04 swingarm with 04 shock and linkage with my rime and tire? The 98 shock and linkage won't work? What about a hayabusa swingarm? I am wanting to swap it out but trying to keep as much of what I have as possible.

the spacer im talking about is the one where your stock dog bone bolts go. the srad is small, the busa is bigger. you can still use the srad bolt though. suzuki sells them for like 15 bux.

Hi guys, sorry to bring back an old thread but I found this a few weeks ago and im now looking at putting a busa back end on my 98 600, what I wanted to ask is:

A. can someone please Give me a list of parts that I would need to do the swap?

And

B. will I need to change my rear calliper?

Sorry if these questions sound really dumb but I'm new to modding bikes and I'm really trying to take in as much as I can:headscrat

Cheers in advance
