I just used them to help justify a Daytona frame and swingarm purchase..I already have said Bassanis, Daytona mags, a 400E seat, an xs650 front end and an rz rear end :olaf:

Not sure about a mono shock conversion, but the rz swingarm weighs 4.5lbs , bare, before I remove 2 inches and  anything extra..
Daytona arm weighs 12lbs
(allegedly)

Wow, that's an amazing weight difference. I've replaced two RZ swingarms with FZ items because I thought they were heavy! Must be a lot of steel in the Daytona 'arm.

Pretty sure the Daytona arm is lighter than 12lbs that I read, hoping to borrow a scale soon..

Debating punting the extra parts to get new tires, some machining and a motolanna swingarm...
