Looks Very cool. I've been considering doing the 5.5 on the 89 600 project bike I've been putting together. Is this one of Kreylyn's widened swing arms? I need to start putting together a parts list and start the seach. Anyway looks great.

McGuire's not terrible, it's still in the middle of NJ, though, in the middle of nowhere. It's 30-45 minutes to get anywhere. The chow hall is still pretty good, though. Definitely a step up from any Army chow hall I've ever eaten in. That may change though. It's a joint base now (Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst) so eventually things like the chow halls may even out across the base. Hopefully that means the Army and Navy chow halls will improve, not that the AF chow hall will decline!

Did you have to do anything to the brakes to get those rims on? (Swap up rotors, change out the caliper bracket/brace, etc)

Huh, I thought all Navy chow halls were civillian run anymore. The one here in Mayport is decent and you can't beat $2.50 for a nice hot meal. Still though, I usually don't eat there unless it's Tuesday. Surf and turf day! For $2.50.

Been a long time since I ate in a Navy chow hall. The food on the USS Midway (when it was still in service) was really good. NAS Sigonella's chow hall was terrible. My BIL (Navy) told me that shipboard food is good and shore food stinks.

ep87 - Yes, that is one of Krey's widened swingarms. I originally mounted it on my 93 600, but it looked a little stretched, so now I am going to modify my 600 swingarm to accept the 5.5" rim.

ep87 & Wild-Bill - Here is the list of parts I am currently using. An RF600 axle (Bandit 600 is the same), RF600 sprocket side spacer (twice as thick as Katana), RF600 caliper side spacer and a Bandit caliper bracket. I am still using the Katana caliper, but a 240mm GSXR brake rotor. Also the torque arm for the caliper has been modified to clear the tire. There are two types of RF600 caliper brackets. One uses the torque arm and the other braces itself inside the swingarm and has no torque arm. I am going to replace the Bandit caliper bracket with an RF unit once I can find one.

Thanks Irish!!

Thank you sir. looks like I should PM Krey soon and see if he's still doing the arms. Bought a set of Busa USD forks last night, need to start getting the stuff for the rear stock piled. Wifes going to kill me.
