I have a swing arm kit that came with a spacer i will upload a photo. Does anyone know how i can get a spacer like this made. It had about an inch threaded whatever its called on the end, which broke off and it also has a threaded hole on the other end both measure M12 X 1.75. I got it from a distributor euro components who sells the swing arm, but he wont tell me the manufacturer. He charges a whopping $110.00 for that piece when in all reality its a $15.00 piece. And its coming from italy so that makes it even worse. Who makes or sells something like this? Where i can get those measurements

That spacer is a crap design. Think of going with a tubular spacer and through bolt grade 10.9 instead if metric or grade 8 if SAE size. This places the whole unit under compression rather then the wimpy tensile application of that design. Bore a hole through the existing ones as the easiest solution for spacer and bolt conversion.

If there is space between the spacer and the bolt the wouldnt the shock move?

Basically set it up same as stock unit, only with longer spacer. Or as Ron mentioned, get a hole drilled through the center of this spacer and get a long(very strong) bolt to go right through.
