Holy hell, think you got enough front brake? You can do Marquez stoppies with one finger!

Those rear shocks are out of step with the rest. Easy for me to say of course (spending your money.) Great project!

Brakes are standard 94-96 zx9r. Can never have too much brake, haha.
The shocks were tough as I didn’t want to get too spendy and needed some chrome. They also bolted right on which was a big plus using the Suzuki swingarm.

this thing is turning out awesome.
my two nitpicks are the headlight sticking so far out front,it looks a lil dis-engaged to me.(purely my opinion)
and the plastic covers on the shocks.
you can compress the spring and pull the black covers off the shocks and let the whole chrome spring shine!

i have the same rear shocks (except black)but removed the plastic covers.

can't wait for the ride video!

Thanks for the comments
The headlight isn’t fully mounted yet but it does stick out a bit further than I’d like but I can adjust it after everything else is in place. The covers on these shocks are actually metal and painted black. Might see what they look like removed.

Finally got the rear wheel and rear end sorted. Had to do a bit of grinding on the swing arm and shorten the sprocket mount studs for clearance. Waiting for my offset sprocket to arrive but with the 520 chain and sprockets using a zx9 rear wheel with 180 tire it fits and spins freely. I am so relieved this actually fit. I’ll be using the stock zx9 rear brake set-up with a custom line.
So to clarify for anybody wanting to go this route...
Gs1100 swingarm
94-97 zx9 rear wheel and brake set-up
Kz1000 rear axle and chain tensioners
Custom spacers
Custom bearings
13.5” shocks
180/55/17 tire
Offset front sprocket
520 chain
520 rear sprocket

I am not sure if the shocks or the front end made the bike so much lower but I cut out 1” from the kickstand so the bike would actually lean over when the stand is down. Going to grind the weld flush and have it coated with a bunch of other parts.
Need to machine rear caliper mount and come up with a way to fit it to the swingarm so it stays when you use the rear brake. Thinking a pin pressed into the swingarm....
