Swing arm damage..pictures for your approval

Recommended Posts

I need you opinions on this damage. Is it too much to drive on and should I just buy a new/used arm or get it welded. And how much would the welding cost?

Get a new one.

PLENTY of used ones on ebay.

Last thing you want is to land off a big jump and have the swingarm break.

I would weld it and not think twice about it. I have welded swingarms before but if I did not weld and could not get someone to do it for $40.00 I would do the flee bay.

That's bad, replace it. New swingarms can be had from Honda for $450ish which is a lot but used swingarms are a dime a dozen on ebay. A welder will charge a minimum hour's labor which is $90 but there will be substantial warping and welding will kill any heat treatment Honda may have done on the swingarm.
