There are a ton of pictures in the gallery, you will just have to search through them, I can not remember exactly where it was at, i will search for a minute, but you should go through it wil a fine tooth comb.

what are the bennefits of swapping the swingarm?
I'd bet its just for aesthetics. That black one with the undertail pipe actually looks good IMO, he does need to shorten the pipe though. . .

Just to let you know it is not for aesthetics... I highsided the hell out of my 0510r at about 50MPH and had a lot of damage including you guessed it a bent swingarm and with the 04-05 arm so hard to find and or expensive I am going with the 06-07. Its cheaped and evidently not too many people have it.

I have started the rebuild. so far I have purchased handlebars, a rearset, one of my engine covers that was destroyed, new pegs, the 07 swingarm, a rear brake mounting bracket, I had to have my block welded in one spot, I have fixed all the broken bodywork and still working on the caved in gas tank (time killer), and after the swingarm install I get to try and figure out the exhaustand see if my extension blocks still fit. Anyone want to wish me some good luck?

Well, I will just say that MANY members here tend to think that ANY scratches/cracks/chipped paint on welds are all indications of a bad frame. I honestly don't know when a frame is officially toast...as I know some cracked frames have been welded with no problems...but I would just be a bit apprehensive if I were you. Let's see what the more experienced guys say about it? Not trying to rain on your parade man, but I would hate to hear about your bike being put back together only to come back apart at speed...with you on it...again. :dontknow: GL!
