Stuarty wants to know Dino or Syn?
JMC Swingarm

Picked up an unused JMC 'arm from Ebay which I intend fitting to my 92 FXRS-C.

It will need cleve blocks or bearings and I'm not sure what will fit. Will OME fit? I understand there is an upgrade available, (roller bearings?) not sure if they will fit and they are a bit expensive

Any advice?

Thanks

Damn. I go two weeks without internet and one pops up on ebay. What did you get her for if you don't mind me asking?

I believe any style that works with the oem swingarm should work.

Sorry for the delay in responding.

I picked it up from Ebay in UK for 325GBP.

Regarding the bearing/cleveblock issue, there seems to be some issues.

An email received in October 2012 from the new manufacturer of the JMC 'arm, Abbey Engineering, advised that OEM cleveblocks will fit without the tolerance ring.

The CCE swingarm upgrade may not fit. In an email CCE advised measuring the JMC 'arm bore (1.726 inch approx) to compare with the OEM 'arm (1.748/1.750) Given the differences it will be "difficult or impossible" to fit CCE bearings.

Abbey Engineering also advised that, due to "a few problems", the production of the JMC is currently on hold. Things nay have moved on since then.
