    It is a lot bigger than I expected.
    Dunno why. I knew it was 17 inches, and I mocked up the dimensions, but seeing it in person is... wow.

    This week, I built a temporary stand for the motor out of wood, and hooked up the controller and a small 48v battery I built for another project to test everything:

    I sized up the motor with the swingarm I got off the Fazer, but it looks like I will have to do some modifications... Any suggestions?IMG_20200919_160632.jpg

    Yeesh - that's a good sized gap there alright.
    Are those studs integrated?

    I don't see that arm squeezing down enough to make the studs work. If you could change them out then you could use heavy spacers to take up the gap - it wouldn't be pretty bit I expect it would serve well enough and I expect you'll need to do something to that effect in any case to maintain cable clearance.

    To do it right though you're looking a refabrication IMO. Retain the pivot and have some new box section with the right dimensions welded up with some appropriate relief for the cables.
