Rear requires a swap kit from Old School Racing. They advertise it for a ZX14, but other members report that a ZX12 rim bolts right onto a ZX14 so the swap kit should work identical. You need to use the ZX10 brake hanger and caliber. The ZX12 rear brake rotor will work. Their swap kit comes with 3 custom spacers and the proper wheel bearings. But I found out, the wheel bearings are identical as the OEM front wheel bearings on the ZX12 so not like its anything special.whats needed for the 10 rims on the stock 12 swing arm? is the front 10 rim fit the forks of the 12? im not into all the work of the 14 swing arm swap but love the looks of the 10 wheels.
Shane was right.... the Gen 1 ZX14 arm is a tad longer then the ZX12R arm. I didn't notice this at first, as I had laid them next to each other side by side and they appeared to be the same. When I put it all together I was running 16/44 gearing (which lets the chain stretch out and the axle ride farther back). Then yesterday I went to put on my stock 18/46 gearing and it wouldn't fit!!!The Gen 2 14 wheelbase is listed as .8" over the Gen 1. And the Gen 1 has a bit longer arm than a 12R arm, as I recall measuring.
I have no personal experience with these, but, I assume they make the bushings to bolt on to a ZX14 pivot shaft. It would be crazy if they made you change anything else. So ya you should be able to buy the pieces from CMG and make it work!I have an evil swinger from a zx14 (picked it up cheap because i knew i coule make it work) but instead of bearings, its bushings in the pivot. Have you had any experience with bushing type swingers and can I just snag these bushings from color me gone?
Finally got a shorter rear brake line for my ZX14 swingarm / ZX10 brake swap. This came off a CBR, not sure what year/model, got it for free from a friend. Installed new ceramic pads while I was at it...Looks like I had moved some of my photos around and the finished product photos was missing... so here they are again...
I wondered about it.... but, so far in bleeding the brakes and checking operation in the garage, it works just fine. Was going to try on the road today but we're getting hammered with a spring snowstorm :-(I'm not sure what's worse, too long or running that crazy bend in the hose!
