I recently saw a pic of a bike with an Adams Swingarm with 90 or newer 17" rim with a 180 tire. I was wondering what mods are required. Offset sprocket, frame clearance etc. Is the wheel a direct bolt on also. Thanks.

1150's suspension is not of the dogbone variety like GSXR's and Busa's.There is some fab and welding required if you intend to have a fully functional rear suspension.The arm will physically fit in the frame but getting the shock and required linkage to work properly ya gotta do some work.Its not a bolt up affair.As for the wheel spacing you may have to use about a 1/2" offset sprocket to get everything to line up.Mcintosh used to charge about $400 to do the frame mods dont know about now.

I had forgot all about this post. Thanks for the info. I'm still in retro mode, and am looking for a mean pro street 1150, or possibly parts. Btw, I am still working in Indiana, (seasonal work).
