Re: Hybrid project

Drilling holes should work on both the standard spacer and the titanium replacement providing you don't overdo it. The standard spacer is nitrided however, and drilling won't be easy- you might need cobalt drills for that. I've never done drilled a nitrided part I can't really advise- so best check ...

Re: Hybrid project

The original 1S swingarm sleeve weighs a ton (OK, 502 g according to my digital kitchen scales): https://i.postimg.cc/R02vj2v5/109-Swingarm-sleeve.jpg So, something lighter is required. The new sleeve assembly will consist of two INA needle bearing inner races IR22x28x30: https://i.postimg.cc/526dbp...
