If it were me, and I had the extra cash and it was cheap, sure I would get it. You could polish it up, and keep it. You never know when you might need it. God forbid the one you have on there now should break, but it would't hurt to have it on hand.

Is there any use for having an extra swingarm? I can get one for my 95 6r for super cheap, and I am wondering if it would ever prove to be of any use. And are they hard to change?

I'll tell you what, I can use an extra one right now; I scratched up my swingarm pretty bad with this new stand I bought. I was having problems raising the rear by myself and really f'd it up. Spools were too small, spool foot was too close to the arm.

There's one reason to go for it.

Not very. Take off the wheel, disconnect all the brake components and brake line tie down points, and then remove the one bolt that goes through the frfont of the swingarm and attaches it to the frame.

In the grand sceme of bike repairs, its one of the easiest.

I didn't do it, I swear.
And even if I did, what makes you think I would admit it to you?

Haha, I got the swingarm, and the nice part is it only cost me $10! They had absolutely no use for it so I got it pretty cheap:D

That's a helluva deal for a swingarm! Hell you can polish that bad boy in no time at all, and switch them out. Then you can polish your other one and keep it. Never know, you might sell it on here and make some cash.

you suck! I want an extra swingarm to practice polishing on and so I can get it sent in to be lengthened so I can have a 4-6" over swing arm if I want to go drag race my bike. Anyone have one for a 99?
