  1. SLR, FX, FMX Swing-Arm

    Dominator / FMX
    I’m pretty sure all the above use the same basic frame, so the dimensions i’m after should be the same. Could someone with a Swing-Arm from one of these measure the front pivot width. That would be the outer width, i.e. the width required in the frame and also the inside width, i.e. the width...

    Transalp
    Hi there, anyone out there rebuilt the rear swing arm bearings and the pivot bearings on their Transalp. I've got a 1999 version and it's just failed the MOT on the pivot bearings. I thought I might as well change all the bearings at the back and give it some paint. Any one know of a company...
