Turns out i didnt need the sliders allthough jacking it up from there would have been easier since i could take more off. Rearsets seemed way more stable so i went with those.

Anyways here it is INSTALLED the Pierobon swinger, enjoy! Look for the matching brembo caliper!!

Thank you, im thrilled with it. Now time to take it off lol! I gotta clean that engine good, and i have some other pieces in bound that will be easier to install with it off.

An update to all on the next step, ill be fitting the tank cover so i can start paint and finishing up my Ohlins rebuild along with other go fast parts that are in bound. Im currently trying to cross refrence seals for the FGRT fork that way i can use SKF low friction seals and wipers instead of ohlins's over priced NOK ones

If youre trying to figure out how much they go for, i know they dont post prices anywhere, im still not 100% sure myself.

I bought this piece used from someone off ebay. karl and i were both eyeing it posted on ebay for 3k as a kit the seller bought from Boulder Motorsports. I worked out a deal with the seller that didnt include the pieces of the kit i had no use for.

As far as retail pricing goes i hear its around 6k euros for the swingarm alone from pierobon and then there may be taxes and fees. He said he paid 8.5k usd at boulder motorsports for the kit. I know pierobon charges insane prices for stands and he had the stand, and then you need the pierobon axle to make this work, and then the option of spacers for either OEM wheels or OZ wheels, then other little pieces and options are available, but arent essential.

I somehow stumbled on this by chance on ebay. i dont know how common these are and if youll find one on there again anytime soon.

Im not sure what other sizes work for sure, i did not look into that as i am only interested in running the stock 180/60 tire sizing and stock 5.5 wheel width.

Finally fitted the tank cover as im getting prepared for paint. I was hesitant to post this as I will need to do some shaving because i am using the Ducati Performance race seat. It looks like that pencil mark that they made is the area that i need to shave off. Couldnt be happier with the fit. Obviously its not perfect at the moment because of my seat, but that wont be a problem, glad they have the refrence marks for it.

To my suprise this actually doubles as a tank extender. As you can see it comes back far enough to covers the bolt for the seat, but has a hole and extension so youre able to remove the seat easily. I do plan on making those bolts blend in and covering up the hole, for those who cant deal with that, wait until the finished product, i think you will be okay with how i will hide it.
