Hey Midas I see you have a XR1200, could you do me a little favor this weekend and pull that swingarm off your bike. Look it over and get me a few dimensions for comparison and we can finally get a clue as if this swap would be possible.

What do you say, anything for a fellow forum member right. Also if it's not too much to ask, since you have the arm off the bike, would you let me have it next weekend and I'll try a fit up then. That would be just great wouldn't it. Then we would all have a clue.

LOL, but in all seriousness, you could probably measure some things like the width of the swingarm and the dimensions of the mounting points - all still installed. And compare...

I'll get right on that Jimbo....Just as soon as i get dressed!




Seriously, i dont think you are gonna get an answer to your question because aint no one pulled one apart yet.
The only one that might have a clue is Adrenalinmoto thats providing he removed the swing arm to paint it black.

Hell, I don't care what you wear, just let me have that swingarm for a day or two.

I pulled this quote from here. "The frame is only slightly different from the standard Sportster frame, but hanging from it is an entirely new, hollow cast-aluminum swingarm that is 40% stiffer than the steel item found on the regular Sportster, and 3.3 pounds lighter. In front is a pair of stout 43 mm Showa inverted forks, while preload adjustable shocks sit out back." http://www.motorcycledaily.com/23dec...2009xr1200.htm

I'm SURE I don't have a clue...but sometime I remember enough to find the people that DO have a clue...

From this thread:

(For those of you not up on who rolnlow is...lets just say he has a LOT of official information from official places)

I'm sure some will doubt this information...those that know, will probably...well, not doubt it.

Oh yeah...now if someone would just get us a part number!

Thinking about it, probably need the brake assembly as well. I wonder if the belt tensioner thingy is needed (or whatever it's called). Axles, spacers, wheels, and bearings probably helpful...damn this is gonna get expensive...JMC's would probably seem cheap unless you could steal one.

(And I couldn't find it...but I'm pretty sure rolnlow mentioned somewhere that the front forks/triple trees would fit the XL frame)
