Got the hub stripped off the sssa today and longer studs fitted, amazing what you can get done at work on a backshift Laughing . Cheers for the step by step CBRRRT, made the hub removal relatively easy cheers

Just need to dig up a bit of material to make up the spacer for my new wheel and job done Laughing

R1 was my original plan to be honest. Mate's got a spare set if plastics so really should get them and give them a try

Aint been on for ages lads
Ive had pooter problems
I got a company in Kent called CDF RACING to do me a hubcentric spacer for £65
Its 30mm with a 75mm lip to go over the VFR hub and a 73.5 outer lip to locate the wheel on the spacer
My wheel has 2 stud patterns 4x100 and 4x105 , so i got the spacer made with built in studs so i can use all 8 holes in the wheel

That's what mine should look like apart from the extra studs lol

Planned on making it myself (with a bit of guidance) but the lathe in our workshop was too small for the diameter.

Fall back plan was to get one of the machine tool operators at work to make one for me. Only cost me the price of material, £25 seeing as I bought two bits, just in case Laughing

Spacer done and hub refitted today but something ain't right.

All bolted together and the wheels locking up against the swingarm, that's not in the plan lol.

Need to scratch my head now and figure out what's wrong.

Still head scratching.

Spacer's the rights size and the wheel is definitely a 7x17 and I'm pretty certain the hub build up was ok as I can't find any spare bits.

Think I'll be stripping the hub again to double check, arse.

Is the wheel hitting the inside of the arm ???
If so you will need to get Mr Grinder out and just flatten back the seem that runs down the middle of the inside of the arm
The off set of the wheel needs to be 40mm, any thing less and the wheel will touch the arm aswell

Ahhhh just thought
If the wheels not touching but the hub is locked up
Make sure that you have fitted the thin washer/spacer behind the sprocket carrier

It is the wheel that's touching. I'm certain the wheel offset is 40mm but I'll double check when I get home and also check the alignment with the front.

I don't remember seeing a seam on the arm Exile but I'll have a look for that too.

Cheers

Everything checked size wise and it's ok.

After another look it's as you said Exile it's hitting where the arm bows out slightly. Got about 5mm clearance above and a bit less below that bit, wasn't expecting the wheel to sit quite as close lol, so looks like a bit if delicate work with the angle grinder is required. Need to be next week when I've got more time.

Plucked up the courage and got the angle grinder out today and had a go at the swingarm. Wheel now running free and think I can probably get a fag paper between it and the arm Laughing

Just need to get a tyre now and see if there's any more "adjustment" required affraid

That had crossed my mind, another bridge to cross when the time comes Smile

Would like to see an "in the flesh" swingarm conversion though just to compare it to mine.

Firstly

Hi all, great site and some awesome projects on here (cheesey opening post but better than getting abuse for asking a question on my first post, wink)

Have had a RRW for 8yrs but its been in abandoned in the garage for last 5 and decided this week to start playing with it again so expect lots of questions!
Before it starts to look like Im posting on completely the wrong thread........
Thanks to Wee Al B, this thread of yours is going to be inspiring as I too am going to be slow at this and spookily have the exact year, paint scheme and even suspected carb problems that you had so am following slowly behind you!

Cheers pal but I doubt it as Ive just spent last hour and a half trying to get the buggers off, and still havnt managed it Ha Ha!!!!!
Took off all the usual bits tank/airbox/hoses/intake rubber clamps etc and still cant budge it, even resorted to getting the Haynes out and no joy.

eBay again for another little bit of the puzzle. Rear caliper bought just need a back tyre and I can roll it out the shed lol.

Just grudge buying a new tyre for it to sit in the shed for a year when the money would be better spent elsewhere.

The 'Prising' was the answer!
Prising=6", 14stone bloke with a 4" crow bar!

What caliper did you go for? Stock vfr or a custom jobby?
