So i thought id try something different with my new arched swingarm. I gave Anthony (Bad Ass Fabrication) a shot. So far im pretty impressed. I just recieved it today. Its bare at the moment and will be sent for PC this week. His prices are very generous. His communication was top notch! Very happy with the service. So here is some pics of it bare. Once it gets pc'd ill post some more and once its on my bike ill post more as well. This is a +6 arched.

Wow very nice! I would like to do a +4 like that but no arch unless there is a benefit that I don't know about?

It looks real nice but I hope your not going beat on it too hard. It needs some more X bracing (side to side), the way it is it's not going take much side or torsional load. Take a look at SLCs arched swinger and you'll see what I mean.

LOL I was just gonna say that woods haha! Yeah man you need some more internal x bracing for sure. It doesnt matter if your running a stock bike or a BB stroker. The problem your going to have is when one rear tire hits a stump or log or something it will side load the swingarm. Here take a look at the internal bracing on my slc +4 swingarm.

Good thing this ones comes with a better warrantee than SLC then huh ?

He sold 2 SLC's in the last couple months, I'm sure he's very familiar.

This is not for a trail bike this is for my turbo duner. So its not gonna get beat on like a trail bike would. He gave me a 6 month waranty and i know a few others that have used this for a bit with no issues.

Yeah SLC's warranty's are pretty shitty IMO. They build a great product so I dont know why they don't offer a better warranty but whatever.
