If a DR650 can get through the centre of Sydney, and on to Randwick without a muffler and not attract to much attention at 8pm on a Sunday night, then you should be fine out there.

This is the nuttiest bike i've ever ridden and i've had a few crazy ones. I'll be trying to ride it from Sydney to Wanaaring with Pezz
To be honest... yes I am a tad jealous... At first glance it is a bit different, but then that is the appeal isn't it? You have made your own italian version of a SuperEnduro/gravel tourer... and done a nice job of it!

It would be a privelige to be given a chance to ride it one day.

Trev hows the RD/RZ coming? Mate of mine had a RD 350 LC, what a sweet bike I loved that thing. Handled dirt roads a treat too.

Had to bin that idea for the run, to much work and not enough time.

It will get done, but I have other priorities at the moment.

It's looking like I will be taking either a ZZR250/KLX hybrid, or a 91 KDX I picked up for $650 a few weeks ago.

You Know how I said above ' Now I can get serious' . . . . .

The Husky swing arm is 217mm wide at the pivot.

The frame is 210mm wide . . . . . . . .

Who would think a single dirt bike would have a wider swing arm pivot than a 4 cylinder road bike. See you should never assume anything when it comes to parts on old bikes.

Back to do some more measuring . . . . . on the XL swing arm.

Look at the calender . . . is that the date

The grinder is your friend Pezz and if that doesn't give you enough clearance stick a bottle jack in between the swing arm mounts on the frame and jack until it fits.

Make sure you have the engine mounted before you try to alter the frame.

my mistake

should be 205mm, dust seals on the swingarm - hence it should fit !!!

cheers matty

Hey Pezz. Just fitted a 2002 ZXR750 alloy swingarm to the old 1981 Z750. Had to cut off all brackets, suspension pivots, etc, but also 13mm off one side and 9mm off the other, then make up 16mm to 20mm sleeves to fit the old swingarm bolt, then tapped 6mm threads in the new swingarm to stop the sleeves moving around........thanks for coming, one 4"-over light swingarm for an old Zed.

The grinder is definately your friend, easy-peasy for a man of your skillsets.

Certainly sounds like I should mill the sides off the swing arm to fit the 400 frame.

I will keep you posted, doing some more disassembly tomorrow.

I was just hoping it would be a bit easier fit, thats all.

Thanks Guys for the encouragement
