After seeing a variety of threads about the two different options, I opted to make a bracket to relocate the rocker pivot point and flip the original 996 rocker, rather than the new rocker design. After an afternoon with some scrap pieces of metal, grinder and welder. I had the bracket done. The rocker was then filed to give clearance and voila. it all fitted together. The ride height adjuster is just an ebay special as the 848 one is non adjustable.tell us more about your rear suspension set-up.
The swinger was from an 848 as I wanted the smaller hub so I could use 996 parts. I had a mate turn up a couple of spacers for the spindle. The rear full floating disc was swapped over from my old setup. The rear brake caliper carrier from my 996 had to to have the locating/sliding peg moved so I could run the smaller diameter disc (996 disc smaller than 848). So drilled/tapped new hole for that. if you look at the pic facing the disc in my earlier post you can see the carrier is now slightly clockwise. The caliper I also shaved a couple of mm from the outside as it was so close to the spokes on the mag wheels I was not happy. All good now and no chance of any interference if there should be any flex in anything. I also put a 748R rear sprocket on as I wanted 520 chain rather than 525.
Out on the road it is good, but the plan is to eventually get some 30 degree rake yokes so needed the longer arm.
