pysopper, I see you are in Beaverton. I'm often up in Hillsboro at Intel.You'll also want the correct pivot. The fancy DS swingarm has a different clamping system than the older versions, I believe it requires the use of the pivot specific to it. IIRC there's been two or three updated part numbers, the newest of which is still available via Ducati.
I installed this swingarm on my '95 SS. I had to space out the right-side rear-set by 5mm so that the brake linkage didn't scratch the swingarm.Could not find a specific thread on this. Besides axle, brake carrier, and slider blocks, what other things are needed? Ran across a deal I could not pass up and just picked one up.
Actually, I found the entire swap to be straightforward. Everything just bolts up, for the most part, using stock parts.Thanks for further details and photos. That looks like the easy part.
