thinking about swapping out to a 02-03 swingarm with the upper brace. will i need to switch to the 02-03 shock absorber also? or will the 00 work? has anyone done this before?

thanks for the info guys! that's what i thought, just wasn't sure... yeah, i'm going to replace the chain & sprockets while i'm at it, since it's about time for that anyway...
trying to get started on getting all of the parts needed. probably won't actually do the swap for a couple of months. here in atl we still got a few good weeks(possibly months) of good riding weather.:D

00-01 used 530 chains
02-03 used 525 chains

But if he isn't using the sprockets it doesnt matter

On the 02/03 arm the chain goes through the swing arm so you would have to break and reconnect your existing chain if you want to reuse it.
