Just put it all back together. It should run on the other Two. Anyone want to buy a bike from me?!

I don't even know if 'spectacularly catastrophic' covers that. I guess the extra cylinder on a triple helps beat a bad one to death twice as fast as a twin could.
Interesting to see the Wolf pipes next to Toomeys, they look very similar. I met Gary Wolf a few times back in the late '80s, he built the exhaust for a Formula SAE car I was working on. Interesting guy, and a very good fabricator.

Damned near identical Russ!

Hi Off Road,

you have made an excessive research about FZ600 swing arm. Great work !

Im in the process of installing a FZ600 swinger with early R6 shock and keeping 18” rear wheel.

Is there a way from you spreadsheet to find out for my setup the length for the dog bones ?

Thanx,

Alex

Hey Alex.

Yes, the spreadsheet can do that.

The spreadsheet calculates the Ride Height Decrease that you get when you install an FZ600 Swingarm and FZ600 dogbones.
You can then adjust the length of the dogbone, until you regain all of your ride height.

The ride height decrease that you get also depends on how long the shock is.
I would need to know the length of the R6 shock, from center to center of the eyelets, in millimeters.

The spreadsheet also calculates Rear Wheel Travel and how much force on the rear wheel, is needed to compress the shock.
Shortening the dogbones will Reduce Rear Wheel Travel, and it will Increase the amount of force that is required to compress the shock.
The result (according to the spreadsheet), is that the suspension is stiffer during the last half of the shock travel.

In order to see how the R6 shock compresses when force is applied to the wheel, I would need to know the spring rate for the R6 shock.

Hera's a link to a post I made showing the following spreadsheets:

RZ with Stock RZ Shock, Swingarm, and Dogbones
RZ with Stock RZ Shock, FZ600 Swingarm, and FZ600 Dogbones.
RZ with Ohlins Shock, FZ600 Swingarm, and FZ600 Dogbones.

It also shows how my calculated results compare to actual measurements made on the bike.

If you're interested in playing with the spreadsheet yourself, you can download a copy of it from this thread.
