Designed to fit a drum brake Yamaha SR500, SR400. On pre 2000 SRs, the brake linkage may require modification to gain clearance. On the TT and XT, some modification of the brake linkage may also be necessary. When using original XT/TT shock absorbers, clearance issues at the shock mount cutouts is common. We offer a version with welded rather than machined shock mounts to alleviate this issue.
It may also be adapted for use on the Yamaha XS650 with minor modifications. Contact us for additional information for this application.
Installation is very straightforward, taking less than an hour to install. Included are axle, axle spacers, new needle bearings (pre-installed), chain tensioners, shock mounting bolts and shock bushings.
This is designed for a drum rear brake, but could be adapted for a disc brake with some modifications.
With this arm, fitment of a much larger tire than stock is possible.
Available in silver, black, titanium, and polished raw aluminum finish.
Weight is approximately 3.5 kg including axle, spacers, and bearings as shown.
Note: The welded shock mount swingarm features round chain adjuster blocks, not the rectangular ones pictured.
Please note: The latest version features a round nylon chain protector fitted around the pivot, rather than the flat black one pictured.
