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.

Much thanks.

possibly a swingarm pivot and hugger.

You never told us what swingarm you have now.

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.

Thanks for info. I did a bit more searching and I'm nearly sure its from Ducati 900SSie '02 (as I also got a red Marchesini wheel in a box of parts I just picked up).

Brake caliper hanger is below the swingarm.

the swingarm pivot part number on the ducati parts system is the same for all ss 600 - 1000, non 1000 monsters, sport classic and gt and even a couple of years of st2/4/4s. 36911172A. not cheap.

I am often there too, I work at Ronler Acres in D1D/D1X. :)

Are you an Intel employee?

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.

Thanks for further details and photos. That looks like the easy part.

Actually, I found the entire swap to be straightforward. Everything just bolts up, for the most part, using stock parts.

I bought my 1000SS swingarm from Japan. It arrived bare, without any of the ancillary parts. I think it may have had the pivot clamp fasteners, but it was missing everything else. I ordered all the other stuff new, including the inner fender, chain guards, etc. I think it cost me a couple hundred dollars to dress it with new factory parts.

This was one of the easier projects I've done on the bike. Most of the effort is just trying to research and procure little fasteners and other factory parts.
