Hey everyone! New to the forum so im if this post is in the wrong section. Well, I managed to scratch my swingarm on mh 17 R6, and it got me thinking, instead of getting a paint pen, maybe I’ll just get an aftermarket swingarm maybe save some weight? I have searched the interwebs and came up short. Anyone know of a company or has no one come out with it yet? Thanks!

the OEM swing arm is pretty damn light and near the best your going to get.

Yamaha has invested thousands upon thousands of development and testing dollars to make that bike work best (especially structural components since i'm not talking about exhaust kits and stuff).

It's going to be a challenge to get a better arm right now. They don't really make titanium swing arms yet...

As someone else pointed out this would be a very expensive modification and you probably would not save much weight. There are other ways of saving weight that are not expensive at all.
