I have a 2000 M900 and was wondering if anyone has swapped a dual swing arm for a single sided one, or heard of it? Please let me know. Thanks!

Mate, 6800 seems huge to me, u can buy a whole new bike for that!
From another thread which I posted previously it seems that it can be done for a whole lot less..

"Got the SSS complete with wheel & brake kit for ------------> $1000 -----( off a S2R 1k)
Also got a S4R shock (you don't need this, yours will work) $100
Front and rear headers -------------------------------------------->$250
S2R Bladder ---------------------------------------------------------->$25
Stock rear sets from a S2R 1k ------------------------------------>$0
Labor ------------------------------------------------------------------>$0 (a friend helped me)
____________________________________________________
$1375
"

...and it seems more plausible. Anyway, I would be interested in any details you can provide!

Cheers!

I'm not sure I understand why you would want to convert form double to single.

The only reason I could think up is ease of wheel changes, but that does not seem like it would drive spending so much?

Whats the reasons?

easier on the newer bikes than the older ones.
I had 25 hours of shop labor
plus wheels, rearsets, custom exhaust work etc etc

(i traded out my labor for a lot of this, i didnt pay cash for it all)
my point was that the job might turn out to be bigger than it is worth, and selling the M900 and buying a S2R1000 may be a better option

I've done it many times on the older Monsters, not a whole lot of $$, but a WHOLE lot of time.
What would you like to know?

thanks

Yeah, first off thank you for the replies I am not used to strangers being so nice. WoW. I am just curious if it was plausible and not the cost of a whole bike. I basically just love the way it looks and love my bike. Why would I go through all of that work just to make changing tires easier? Come on man. I am really not in a situation to throw around a lot of money. Full time to 25 hrs. a week blows. Anyway thanks again.

be cool

What parts would be interchangable on this swap? I have a 2001 Monster 600 dark and I am interested in getting a single sided swing arm. What year monster s2r would I have to get it from.

I don't think anything is a direct bolt on. You must cut the cases and/or swingarm; fabricate a whole new exhaust; weld on a new upper shock mount; new wheel; new brake; etc.
