Fury swingarm on a 1100?

Hey people!

Does anyone know if someone has tried using a Fury swingarm and wheels on a 93 VT1100?

I haven't looked into measurements yet, but, it's something that came to mind recently. I don't think the Fury swinger is ridiculously bigger than the 1100's, so the shaft 'may' fit in there OK?

I'm desperate for some wheels from a 750 spirit (the front being a 21" would be ideal for the 1100 project), but as they're rarer than hen's teeth, I thought I'd expand the search a tad for other options.

Cheers all

Short answer: No, I don't know right off the top of my head and it's been a few months since I've even seen one.

After a preliminary Google search it doesn't look like everything would be a quick-fit. I'm not entirely sure (don't have a whole lot of time to research right now) but I think the shaft system is different, and the brake may even possibly be on the opposite side. It is definitely an interesting thought and I'll probably do more research at a later time.

Someone may have some more insight/a solution for you if you let us know what your goal is (i.e. wider rear tire, just like the wheels, upgrade the brakes, etc).

Hey chaps,

The reasons for doing it are based around the visuals, the swingarm just looks so much nicer than the 90's 1100 affairs - ideal for a lowriding chop. The wider wheel wouldn't be a bad thing either

Otherwise, I'm going to have to fabricate a kind of 'cover' to go over the 1100 swingy - not ideal

Mine would be all those...I like the wheels, I want the bigger wheel/tire on rear and upgrade the brakes
