Here it is complete and assembled into a slightly scabby swingarm to check the fit -

Apparently all the commercially available 50x62x5 seals come in that fetching shade of turquoise - not critical since they are both competely out of sight but if anyone is offended by them I can fit the black OEM ones for an additional fiver on the price.

The only dimension which differs from stock is the width of the adjusting flange - a quick clearance check with the original spacer in place behind the sprocket carrier shows a comfortable 1mm+ between that flange and the heads of the sprocket bolts

Which brings me to the bottom line...

Price for the complete assembly as shown will be £300 if we can get firm orders for five (that is to say orders accompanied by a substantial deposit) and make them as a batch - alternatively I can supply one-offs but the cost then will be £340.

As usual with these projects, thanks go to Richard and Dave at R&D Precision, whose ability to to transform my ideas and sketches into beautiful metal is truly impressive...

Did you get enough orders to run the batch, and will you be making more? I'm working on budgeting for some upgrades on my 1991 NC30...

Rick, as above did you get enough interest, I don't use the forum much anymore so only just seen this.

whats the weight saving?

let me know if you get enough and what you want/need as a deposit to secure.

I got mine installed, never weighed it. :whistle:

It's a really nice piece and I highly recommend it to anyone needing a replacement, or just looking for some unobtainium for a special project.

It's a Rick Oliver part, so you know it's good.

I'm interested in one if they're available. Were there enough people interested to get a batch produced?
