Yes - they are the same and the swingarms are interchangeable. Did a SSS conversion on my 696.

Nice. Did you fab that all up yourself?

Well here is what I did. I had my engineer intern digitized the stock swingarm, imported it into solidworks and reconnected the pivots and hubs with chromoly tubes. It's then stress simulated to 7 G, all pass. I then send it to Mitreworks in Ohio, who specialize in 3D CNC bending and notching. The hubs were machined at a local machine shop here in Georgia. My buddy Ed from Jaguar performance who builds go-kart chassis for a living built the jig and welded it together.

so if you ask me, i can't say I "fabbbed" it :P. but I designed it in the way it can be precisely reproduced, that's what an engineer would do

i was going to slap on a tubular trellis SSA from an S2R800 to my 795. a matter of welding/fabricating a new shock linkage on top of the swinger similar to what one guy (flight cycles, photo below) did...

but you did it from scratch... that is a fantastic job, you just became my hero. i wish i was as technically proficient as you. anymore photos of the mod? how is the weight of the chromoly swinger compared to the OEM? how did you make the hugger? would you be willing to make another one that i can purchase? really interested

sorry for so many questions but your work got me excited

Thanks for the compliments. It took me nearly two years to finish the bike. I'm not a big fan of "one offs" so I digitized everything. It can be precisely reproduced. Here are more pics. I saw there are two of you are interested. I can do that. The exhaust has a custom made "box" slip-on muffler so its' tucked away.

Any idea what replicating it would cost?
