another perfectly good motorcycle ruined.......

compare the 'new' swingarm, [fitted to the frame, top], with the skinny little thing, [bottom, offset mountings throwing the shocks out], just need to get the beefy, new arm powdercoated and the new bushes fitted and we should be good to go, the tubing on the new arm is inch and a quarter diameter compared to three-quarters of an inch on the old arm, check out the box section near the swing-arm pivot with the little tube on the original, should be a lot better especially when the shocks are actually in line.

  1. The shock mount is 10mm off because the beefier one is the swingarm intended for your ETZ-frame, whereas the other one was intended for a MZ TS (the predecessor model)...
