10-4 ban-um lol

but while we are on the subject, always wondered why suzuki chose to weld the top brace like this on K5/6.. is it two halfs welded together? why is it constructed this way ? Cost?

Not even earlier model top brace looked this cobby and a year later swingarm hydro-formed but much heavier...weird


It's made up of 3 separate casting, and 2 separate stamping for a total of 5 pieces all welded together, making it lighter with precisely calculated rigidity, see below...

Ok whatever ban me but..... it is not lighter than k1-4 arm.

That information I posted above is from an Original Suzuki OEM Sales Brochure... What is there to dispute...

Are you saying Suzuki OEM don't know what their talking about... that's just Totally Moronic......

How many swing arms have you designed by the way... ZERO !!!
