    Ok...my new engine is at the dealers and my bike is tore down for the workover.
    Here is where I am in need of some advice.
    As Cyber has pointed out, I am going to need a new swingarm and rear wheel...which also means brakes and shock....no big deal. But only no big deal if I had an idea what would fit on.
    What I need to know is what is the largest swingarm/wheel that I can just bolt onto a 93 1100 Kat frame? Ebay is full of this stuff, but I am not sure what to look for.
    I don't have a short temper. I just have a quick reaction to bullshit.

    Mojoe I need some back information. Why do you need a new arm and wheel? What are you havening done to the engine? Chances are you aren't going to find a "bolt in" swing arm. Every swing arm mod I have seen has required extensive frame modifications.

      A 200hp Vance & Hines race engine is going in it.

        if you can find a 88-89 gsxr rear wheel complete with brake rotor and caliper and bracket it will fit right into a stock kat swing arm and the swing arm off the same bike will fit also.

          This is garanteed? You know this for sure? Have you done it?
          I only ask because I want to be sure before I go out and buy.

            I thought those years of Gixxer, the wheels were identical to the Kats for Pre-98. How wide are those? Needs to be checked.

              I don't know which ones will fit (I suspect Walteri will), but I am surpized to hear that the engine is at the dealership rather than in your garage... Hmmm...

                Because I am buds with a couple of guys there and I am getting a decent deal on labor. Plus it will be garanteed...at least the assembly. It is mostly a time factor for me. I have not done enough bike engines to be efficient. And if a valve gets smacked into a piston, they will be responsible.

                  Waltari has swaped out the swingarm for a RF900 arm. As he would tell you, that is the closest fit but you have to make a special bushing for the different size pivot shaft of the Kat.

                  There are some mods you need to do. You can ask Frogger on KP also.
