The SP2 swingarm will fit into an SP1 frame, but they are not directly interchangeable.
The SP2 swingarm pivot bolt is smaller in diameter, so an insert is fit into rear of the engine where the bolt passes through.
Plus, the pivot bolt, related adjust bolts, and hardware will need to be obtained to mount the swingarm.
Not that difficult, but not as simple as some think.

^ Well that's pretty cool RC-DEVIL. I wonder who took the time to make that?

AREA 51 - (cool name and welcome to the forum) - If you search for threads or posts by sbkdrew, he has had SP2 swingers and parts for that very conversion for sale. I've seen many here do it.

Yep Jon, Thanks.
I have one set of used OEM SP2 pivot parts and the conversion sleeves.
You would have to find a SP2 caliper hanger.
Or convert to an underhang caliper setup.....:cool:
