    Hi

    Does anyone know the width of the swinging arm where it fits in the frame? I’m looking at later model aftermarket swinging arms to fit a wider 17″ wheel & a 150 tyre & want to measure a few up as options

    Thanks in advance

    I don’t know the measurements but I can tell you they are different for different models. What model do you have?

    Looking at the picture I would say it’s a 1982 Y1 LTD. Check the frame number in the Model ID section of the library.

    That is the sort of information i was hoping to get from the group. I’m looking at a 550/750 Zephur swinging arm to fit & need to make a few measurements once I get the bike in my workshop to confirm it will fit in the frame or need minor work to do so.

    Cheers

    Apologies if I’ve posted loads of the same pictures, been getting some jargon saying the post hasn’t been submitted & when I look, I can see that the pictures are on the forum.

    Anyway, went with a Zephyr 750 swinging arm, just needed 6mm off each side of the arm where it fits in the frame, got to make up some top hats so the bush sits on the bolt that goes through the frame.

    Trialled a Zephyr 750 wheel to see how a 150 tyre will look, still want to go with supermoto style wheels, next up is a USD front end.

    Supermoto wheels in for mock up, still not sure about what front forks to use.

    Went with a Zephyr 750 swinging arm, fairly straight forward to fit, had to cut 6mm a side off the width of the arm to fit in the frame, need to make some top hats to suit the swinging arm bolt that goes through the frame.

    Put the wheel in to see how a 150 rear tyre will look, still want supermoto style wheels. Next up is an USD front end.
