Don't know about that but you can definitely send your SA off to Kreylyn to get it widened. His standard is wide enough to fit a 5.5" rim which takes a 180/55-17 tire.

I do not know of an alternate swingarm that is a direct bolt in (no mods needed) swap to fit the larger wheel. The majority of the swingarms made for the larger wheels widen too quickly and will hit your subframe. The few that don't do that have significantly different geometry for the linkage and cusion/shock mounting. I've yet to see someone post details on a swingarm swap that didn't include custom machine work, welding/fabrication being done, or major alterations to the rear area of the bike.
