I had a batch of SR 500 swingarms made. They are strong light and beautiful! Check it out! The first 15 sold out in a week but I'll have more available very soon. let me know if your interested.

That looks amazing. What length did you use from center of pivot to center of axle adjustment? What's the tire clearance at the front like, same as stock or wider? I'm only asking 'cause I'm curious, that swingarm looks like it would cost as much as my whole bike. Nice. Where is it made?

The pivot to mid adj. length is 45.5cm. The width at the axle is 20.5cm. the clearance for your tire is 16cm (if you want it to rub the sides!) I'm not keen on sharing the info for the factory as they're making some other stuff I'd like to retail in the future. (rear sets etc)
Price for the swingarm including new needle bearings and the axle: $550 US dollars not including shipping.

That's cool. I was just curious if it's made in the US, Europe or Asia. Price is kind of what I expected. I forgot to ask, what's the benefit, besides looking hella cool? Probably considerably stiffer than stock, but probably heavier too...
Good luck with 'em.

FR, Sorry for the late reply. The benefit is a 50% reduction in weight from the stock swingarm as well as the added bonus of rigidity. Of course that and it looks like diamonds on a centerfold (moorcycleporn version!) [8D]
