  • Kawasaki GPX/ZZR swingarm material?

    I think I know the answer for this but I guess I will make sure.

    I have looked on the internet but I can't find out the material that the swingarms of the GPX or the ZZR are made off. I pulled the exhaust cans and saw some very little rust so I'm guessing it is some kind of stainless steal?


    Seems like no polished swingarm for me .

        Why would you want to polish the swingarm on that bike X? A new fairing set would make it much nicer...
        There are two questions in life.
        1:Which way do I go
        2:Whats the lap record.

          Because different people have different tastes?

          It's his bike.

            Stainless steel is called so for a reason Probably regular mild steel.

              I painted it matt black a while ago. I was deffinitely sick of the pink look, scratches and cracks.

              Also polished the frame and the outer rims (hard to see in the photos). I thought I would finished up with the swingarm.

                  My bad, I thought you would have seen his other posts of that bike around the place and were having a dig at his painting and such. Even so, who cares why people want to make their bike look a certain way?

                    No mate no dig at all, didn't see his posts about the paint, last time I saw the bike it was pink as he said with cracked fairings.
