Old F4 swingarm on new F4?

What needs to be done to fit the old mag swingarm on the new F4 model?

I remember someone did it.

Thanks.

Hi Nicholas, I'm sure someone with more knowledge will jump in here but I've not heard of fitting the older swing arm to the newer bike, isn't it usually the other way round as the new swing arms are lighter and use the newer hubs that aren't prone to failure?

I could be mistaken but to me at least it sounds like the OP has access to a magnesium swinging arm from the OG F4 Oro series or perhaps it was available as a genuine spare part..?

Yes. Older magnesium swingarm on newer F4. It has to be lighter. The new upgraded hub fits the older swingarm as well.

No, I saw that but was just saying that most the time people change the other way - I've not seen someone putting the older swing arm on the newer bikes so wasn't sure it was possible but I may have missed any threads where someone has

I believe Noel posted a weight comparison a while ago.
And the old Mg Swing Arm, being 25mm shorter, is actually as light as the +2010 Swing arm.
Or at least it was so close in between the two of them that it seamed to be senseless to pay the premium for the Mg.
He will might share his wisdom.

I was afraid of this. Newer stuff is always better.


I just wanted to put more bling on the bike. A shame there is no mag swingarm for the new F4, or carbon....
