1098 Swingarm Slider Blems
Your Price: $39.99
The 1098 swingarm is a beautiful example of the state of the art in casting and welding technologies, proudly displayed for the world to see. It also is exposed to major damage in the most minor of tipovers. If you draw a line between the rear axle on the left side and the left foot peg bracket, you'll see that the swingarm is almost guaranteed to hit if the bike should fall over on the left side. Swingarm sliders protect the swingarm, rear axle, and axle nut in a crash and slide. These swingarm sliders fit inside the axle as much as possible and are connected with a rod through the axle. Since they fit inside the axle, they are supported by the axle when impacted from straight on or from the side. The back side of the slider has been drilled out to reduce the weight of an otherwise large piece of polymer. The parts are CNC machined from solid polymer rod for superior strength, fit and finish. This kit installs in minutes with only a 5mm key key. It removes just as quickly for maintenance and can be reinstalled virtually an unlimited number of times.
Note: This kit fits the 1098 rear axle currently used in production. The 1098 was originally produced with a larger rear axle with an inner diamer of 43mm (1.695). Ducati made a mid-year change in 2007 to an axle with an inner diameter of 40.4mm (1.591). This kit fits the rear axles with the smaller inner diameter. If you have the larger rear axle, please order kit 150-0086-001
Kit 150-0115 contains 2 swingarm sliders, 1 connecting rod, stainless steel fasteners, 2 RhinoMoto logo stickers and installation instructions.
These items were placed in the blem category because the surface finish was scuffed during handling. There are no large gouges in the surface, but they are not high enough quality to be sold as first quality. These are perfect for 1098s that are being used as track bikes.
