New from the Netherlands looking to swap standard KLZ1000 swingarm to SX one !

Hi just new from the Netherlands...

I own a KLZ1000 versys of 2012 besides a collection of 47 other bikes including several ZXR400s , several GPZ900s and other models and makes..

i am thinking of replacing the Original swingarm with the one of a Z1000 SX. so the chain adjustment will become more easy and accurate !

Any experience on this modification

That would be a good question to ask JDRocks on Adventure Rider he is a former inmate of this forum, unfortunately there was a bit of a disagreement with me and as adults, sometimes people just can't forgive . He is extremely talented when it comes to bike builds, plus my understanding is he is a engineer.
