SP2 swingarm on an SP1?

Word around the campfire is that putting an SP2 swingarm on an SP1 improves traction and feedback. Has anyone done/tried this? If so would it be recommended?

Im pretty sure my SP1 has a SP2 swinger. Its a 2000 and has spools and from what I understand SP1's didn't have the threads for them. I just picked it up and Im doing all the free mods today. Ill be posting pics when I get it tuned and cleaned up.

Incorrect.

SP-1: '00 model
Swingarm has bobbin adapters on there for paddock stand
Front forks are a brown type color with blue adjusters atop of the forks
SP-1: '01 model onwards
Swingarm bobbin adapters not present. This was done in order to use the HRC type rear paddock stand.
Front forks color is changed to a lighter gold color with silver (aluminum finish) adjusters atop of the forks. (This color scheme was then utilized across the range of the SP 1's until the end of production)

Hmmm, my 2000 doesn't have spool receivers. I wonder if there is a way to tell if it's not the original swing arm?

I have an opportunity to pick up an sp2 swinger for my 00. I'm really interested in what all has to be changed and what problems this solves ie, do u have to use sp2 shock? Can u use sp2 pipes once the swingarm is swapped? Anyone done this here or have any links?

The '00 SP1 and all SP2's have spool mounts.
The '01 SP1 does not have spool mounts (and I have no idea why).

- You have to get a SP2 rear engine spacer, the one that fits into the provision which the swing arm bolt slides through.. there is no part # for this... trust me, I have already done this mod on my old rc51 sp1.. otherwise, yes its a nice improvement performance wise, but unless your a madman on that bike you may not notice, but its cosmetically a big improvement in my opinion... my 2 Cents.

to clarify the [email protected] swinger here's a picture of my SP2, the SP1 is braced, the sp2 is a beautiful stamped unit.
