Steve ,

If you modify your existing s'arm and use the hollow spindle then you won't have to change the metalstics - big bonus .

Most metalastics look a bit raggety at the open end  but as they are quite long it is unlikely that the rubber has degraded further in .

Hi Richard and Chris

Yes i think that all those tails of Woe are enough for me, I did the A65T and that was a bit of a pig.
I think i might modify it, i would weld it but the swing arm has already been powder coated / stoved by the previous owner, I'll take a closer look at the torque arm.

It will save me looking for a new swing arm anyhow!

Many thanks guys

Regards

Steve
