  • Aluminum Swingarm?

    Is there such thing as a Aluminum swingarm for a 98+ Kat 750???

    If So, I want to get one and get it anodized!

    I am thinking of getting my rims and forks anaddized gold, and thought that the swingarm to match would look sweet.

          Nope, that baby is steel.

            Wouldn't you be happy enough with a powdercoat in a similar color? Or talk to your plater and see if they can plate mild steel to match (may take more steps, but should be feasible without having to fabricate a whole new swingarm).

            Cheers

              I am thinking of doing that with mine....I am lucky enough to have an aluminum one.
              http://www.caswellplating.com/ even has the kits to do it for $300. I am thinking the wheels, my swingarm and fork tubes....as well as calipers, if they are aluminum...I have to check. Not sure about the tubes either. Want to do my engine covers as well. It is very resistant.

              check it out...simple to do....fairly.

              I don't have a short temper. I just have a quick reaction to bullshit.
