Max of $400 on the swinger only, or all together. If you don't want to spend more than that you are probably going to be looking at used swingers.

i have a +4 and the stock brake line is fine. one of the advantages of a swinger is getting rid of the stock carrier and going with a "honda style" twinrow.

the fourhoundred was for the swingarm. So none of them use the stock carrier?

THE MAIN ADVANTAGE of the aftermarket swingarm is the concentric chain "honda style" carrier IMO. You really can't understand how badly the stock 660's carrier sucks until you've owned a honda carrier. I've gone online shopping and had aftermarket +0 swingarms and carriers in my "shopping cart" more times than I can count, that carrier is a holy thing that is to be praised and spoken of in reverence.

Indeed, the sliding type carrier is a POS, honda style is the only way to go. Why do you thing the 700 comes that way now? It's impossible to get the carrier out of whack and a whole crapload easier to adjust the chain.

Yeah just like they said.....the roundhouse carrier is the way to go....the only thing that will work with the stock carrier is a swingarm extension off ebay and i wouldn't trust it if i rode hard....you'll thank yourself for spending the extra dough to get the roundhouse swinger....and better, stronger bearings also :thumbsup:

Are all aftermarket swingers using the "Honda" style carrier? Does it require any special axle or can I throw a durablue through it? What about hubs and such? Do those need to be replaced to match the new carrier?

Basically, is it a new swinger or a new rear end?

all aftermarket swingers use the "honda style" carrier and you can use a stock style axle.

I'm not really sure why everyone is so concerned with retaining stock brake lines. In my opinion, the stock brake lines should be replaced even if you don't go wider/longer because of the increase in brake response.

the fronts are a must but not so much the rear.

So far, I'm very happy with my ASR swinger, just don't be in a hurry as it took twice as long to deliver as advertised (a month vs. 2 weeks). Plus the price was very reasonable for the quality of product you are getting.
