Apperently it seems that there is no gs1100 swing arm for sale at all, guess you guys take them as fast as they is put on ebay :laugh:
However, as another person said, was that The swing from the gpz1100 woyld work, correct? And if so, does i have to modifie it very much? The pivot axles and diameters was exactly between The gs1000,..
Here is swing arm on ebay, from. The gpz though. So, what do you guys say about it? Is it a lost case directly maybe?[ebayhttps://www.ebay.com/itm/Kawasaki-GPZ-1100-KZT10B-Hinterradschwinge-Schwinge-swing-arm/332599816230?hash=item4d707e7026:g:gpQAAOSw7WJaumD8[/ebay]

Thanks for your proffesional help guys!

So i bought The swing that Scirocco was linking me to, Thanks for that! Now its time to find some rear shocks, and I have found a couple of shocks that i am looking into, besides those YSS that i was recommended earlier.
What are you guys saying about these? http://firefoxracing.co.uk/parts-accessories/online-shop/suspension-parts/yss-shock-absorbers/yss-shock-absorbers-suzuki/suzuki-gsx-1100-s-katana-1982-1984-double-tube-hydraulic-yss-twin-shock/
They are cheap and seems to have The measurements that i need and is said to be from yss.
Cheers!

So, The katana swing arm is on it's way home and I bought a set of yss 13" rear absorbers, just as recommended by you guys. I guess the final thing i need to buy is some rims now. I asked out on Facebook and got a lot of response, some People thought that the best idea would be to get rims and a complete set of swing arm from either a zephyr 750 or the zrx1100/1200. What do you guys say? I have found out that the rear rim from a zx10 would work out quite well and the rims from the zrx1100 would also work if i change the bearings, or have i missed anything?

Would anybody be able to confirm what kind of wheels that might work without at least custom making as possible? Shall i buy The zrx1100 or tgw zx10?
Cheers and have a really good weekend!

Escobar I didn't do the conversion but I don't think there is much in it. The shocks are konis, bottom mounts were welded to the zx swingarm. The eccentric adjusters are great as you can swing the axle through the arc and raise or lower the rear end. This has a zzr1100 front sprocket, and the rear sprocket offset to match so it can go a wider tyre, I have run a 140 rear but don't think it was a good match to the front tyre size. The frame has been braced on this bike also, steering head and above the rear engine mount.

So the project is on.
I got the katana swing arm and also bought a set of Gpz750 wheels. Looking forward to see the result :)

As someone of you guys notified me earlier in this thread, i need some spacers between The swingarm and the frame, it differs about 10mm between original swing and The katana swing, so im going to ask a workshop to machine me two 5mm spacers (38x16x5mm).
The second mod I need to do is to get a another wheel bearing for the gpz wheel since the pivot for the rear wheel axle has has a smaller diameter.
Please let me know if you guys has any other inputs!
Cheers!

Save money on the S/A spacers and just use washers.

My favorite bike. If I'm ever gonna by one more bike it will probably be a '83 z1000J. On of the first mods would probably be to change the wheels to those you choosed (some of the best looking wheels and the front is 18") paint them black. A low superbike bar and then its just those footpeg hangers.

Are you from Sweden too? I'm from Stockholm.

Keep us posted! I'm looking forward to your updates.

A GPZ 1100 UT rear wheel would be a direct swap for your swing arm and wheel bearing size.

Interesting! It seems to be quite expensive to order the wheel bearing that i would need (80usd) and since i also got information that i would need to machine the chain sprocket about 10mm for this wheel, then maybe i should buy a gpz1100 wheel instead.
