Any links to conversion kits to go from DSS to SSS? If nothing else, if I finally decide I can live with the radiator, I'll know whether a Testastretta (or, maybe, 1098) will fit in my M1000S.ATO Memphis said:There are Single Sided Swingarm (Acronym? Yes please: SSS or SS SA) conversion kits available for all Dual Sided Swingarm (DS SA / DSS), however they are not complete - You also need a new rear wheel.
Other people have attempted this before, I don't know much more on the subject. My M900 is certainly a DSS setup, and that's my only beef.

SSS means to rear wheel alignment hassle.
Rear wheel removal is easier -- easier tire changes.
Yeah, aesthetics are a reason. If you like it, and can afford it, go for it.ATO Memphis said:For me?
Its pure aesthetics. I love the look of an open wheel. Similarly I'm attracted to the Honda Interceptor, but find the rest of the bike too boring!
I think the SS SA gives you the ability to show off a full wheel, and is a 'wild' (though not uncommon) design. Personal preference here I guess.
Here's the link that popped into head:
