I wasn’t about to fork over $400-500 for a new swing arm especially after doing some research in the forums that this is a common issue. Not to mention, it sheared off on the weld too.
I decided to remove the swing arm, tear it down, weld the “arm” back on”, and instead of using the factory plastic skid plate have a metal plate cut and weld that in plus gusset the arms to make them stronger. So far I’m $100 into this. I did also order a new tensioner and a new chain guard as when the chain fell off it bent the guard up.
And yes some of my welds (especially the first few) may not be the prettiest.
I’m hoping to have it back together this weekend and we shall see how she holds together by the need of this month. Planning on hitting the trails first weekend in April.
