Hi. Has anyone ever fitted a RGV swinging arm? If so what was the linkage make up. Thanks.

I fitted a P swingarm to mine (sold it later as it wasnt eligible to race with).
It goes in nicely with some minor spacers at the front.
I had a new tie rod bearing housing made up and welded onto the bottom of the swingarm in the same position as the original KR1 one in order to maintain the leverage ratio and use the original tie rods.
I also used the RGV caliper bracket so that I didn't have to have a torque arm.

Others (The Elf) have used very long tar bars connected to the original KR1 rocker arm, although I am not sure how this affects the leverage ratio.
