Hey all, with talk of self-isolation I may support some independent bike breakers and work on another project as I stay at home in the garage... Before I send some financial support...

Would a Monster 796 single sided swingarm work with a 2002 900ss engine, or any SS engine for that matter (aircooled of course)?

I know that 796 s/a pivots in the case, not the swingarm
any idea on pivot width (knowing that shims would still be necessary, of course)

The plan is some welding trickery to a 900ss frame to line up the shock mounts. Should be a fun challenge if I'm not machining cases for width or anything.

Belter? DucVet? I'm thinnin you guys would know...

I have a 1100evo chassis and swingarm from a engine donor bike I can measure tomorrow at the shop if I remember.

That would be great, Ducvet. I've got a spare 900ssie case i can compare it to. I suppose swingarm pivot diameter should be the same...?

New shims required (possibly) but it will fit without issue. Swingarm pivot bolts are same diameter for what you are doing but some vary in overall length.

The 796 swingarm uses an offset shock setup from the centerline axis. You might have to modify some of the outer (side) 900SS frame tubes to clear for the shock being offset as much as it is to the outside. Modifying the 796 swingarm mounting point for the shock is a not-gonna-happen situation.

Pivot bearings on the s/a. :confused:

Doable , but not without major surgery on the cases and the frame.
You'll have better luck with a s/a. from a Monster 1100 .

m796 should be a swingarm bearing in case engine, so should be exactly the same fitment as all the others - ss, st, sc, m.

the hm796 is bearing in swingarm, but the monster 796 parts catalogue i just looked at has bearings in the cases, and cases common for all the 795/796 monster variants.

Very comprehensive the parts catalogues at "Mornington Ducati" site, but it seems someone needs to double check what model he's looking at, 'cause the first of the pics I posted is what they list for " Monster 796 Swing Arm "
Same thing with the "Monster 796 USA".:(

just did double check, think maybe your advice applies to yourself more than me. that frame is clearly a hyper

No way I meant it as an advice for you.
I'm sorry, if it sounded that way.
I meant it as a caution to first time visitors, like me, to "Mornington Ducati" site.

Its a single sided swingarm from a monster 796, with the bearings in the case, not the swingarm. As long as the pivot width will work and the spindle is the right diameter, I've got a good starting point!

1100evo chassis. swingarm is pretty much 175mm between swingarm sides. Yes bearings are in the case on this model of single sided swingarm. for reference shock center line is close to inline with the left edge of the rear wheel (not tire).

swingarm pivot is common size as the engine in the chassis is a 1000ds and it is the same as 90% od Ducati's just different lengths.

Fyi: this chassis parts are going to be for sale as it was just bought for the motor.
