Question Other than...

...buying the same swing arm, can a '97 CBR900RR swing arm be swapped out for some other Honda swing arm; preferably from a newer model?

I am not 100%, but I am relatively sure the 96-97 swingarms were different from both the previous models & the 98-99 version. I remember the offset of the brake on the 98-99 models being about 4mm difference etc. This might be alleviated with spacers etc, but knowing Honda I would say you have about a 50/50 chance of all the spacers & stuff lining up properly from year to year. Hopefully someone else with more insight will respond soon.

What happened to your current swingarm & why don't you want a direct replacement?

I really miss my 97 model
