I've thought about doing this mod before.....the hardest part is to fit the rear shock without tampering with the RC's geometry to the worse.

From what I can tell, this guy in the picture have installed a Ducati 996 swingarm and wheels





But the Ducati has the shock link on the upper side of the swingarm, near the subframe.
Plus it will need a hell of work from Albert666 to make a custom exhaust header pipe set.

I don't think it's worth the money and the time to do such a mod, unless you have enormous amounts of free time in your hands and cash are annoyingly in your way to the kitchen that you have to kick them away to make way

I have a friend that just married the rear suspension from a Ducati 916 to a CBX.

I really like the looks of that too, but wonder....even if you got the suspension hook up figured out, I would wonder how stable that set up would be in a curve? Too many variables involved there.

If your RC51 doesn't bring you to your knees, you are not a righteous man...lol.

However, if you noticed, the RC above uses the OEM shock/link.

Without seeing the actual swingarm, I'd guess that is the RAM swingarm. It's aftermarket and uses the Ducati wheel or any other wheel that fits the spindle.

The rear wheel is definitely a Ducati/Marchesini wheel, the front is probably an old Marchesini magnesium wheel.




I'm always right.
