How bout the other way? What would it take to fit a 899 arm set up on a 1299? I am assuming a arm, wheel, axle. What about the caliper and brake line?

Arm, wheel, axle, disc, sprocket, chain, front sprocket (520 pitch), brake line, hugger, chain guards, mud/oil guard etc etc

It?s a lot of kit....which i might have for sale!

Caliper is the same fit

Just an FYI, but there's a guy on the 959 forum that performed such a operation which turned-out to be a disaster. The bike was traded-in and the dealer did not perform his due diligence. The wheels couldn't line-up, obviously handled like a shopping buggy and the whole mess may just turn into a lawsuit.

All complete , it was a fun and easy project .

I did learn a lot about the bike . I have not ridden her yet maybe tomorrow if rain stops .

All I have left is the slipper clutch and clear cover .

I did install my signals on my handle bars which I believe is safer with more visibility.

Mirrors on my handle bars , don't know if I like it until I ride .

All and all I love the look and happy, time to ride .

You guys like ?

So am I right in thinking a standard 1199 rear wheel and for the front the 899/1199 wheel is the same size. So only need to change the rear wheel?

Also what break line did you uses in the end, will the standard 1199 line not work?

To support the bike, I fastened two fisheye hooks to the ceiling beams and used ratchet straps to fastened the back of the bike.
The front I used my bike stand and strapped the front down.
The bike is stable and secure, less expensive way I thought.
But why is the front strapped down? Isn't the front stand enough?

Also, are there any other alternatives to changing the swingarm if one doesn't have garage beams to strap to?

Also, so mentioned you have a termi full system on the way. Looks like you already had the slip-on, so where did you get the headers?

Everything was going very well until I got to the rear brake line .

The 1199 had a short rear brake line , looks like I need a longer line to connect to abs hub in the front of the bike . I can't remember the name of it .


My 1199 brake line goes from the rear calliper to where my rear brake petal is . Picture above .

I need it to attach from the rear calliper to the front where the Abs sensor is.

I think the 1199 bike I got the parts from did not have ABS. So I need to figure this out .

Hope this makes sense .

Delete the abs and put some aftermarket lines on.

So...effectively, you got yourself 1199 now? I love that you are doing this, but I have to ask, wouldn't it be simpler at this point just to get 1199?

Would of been cheaper to purchase an 1199 however I love to learn and can honestly say I built my bike.

It’s also been fun along the way turning wrench’s and drinking lots of wine in the process .

Hi,


After mounting the SSA, because it's longer than the original,

have you modified the settings of your rear shock please ?


Thanks

Sylvain

I adjusted my setting and spring based on my weight.
I suggest calling a speed shop
And have them do it for you bike will corner better

Thanks Alvarop !
Mathematically, the SSA being longer it will have to harden the damper
in order to have the same damping.
I'll see this with my mechanic :tango_face_wink:
