How hard is it to replace the swingarm?
Got a nice chrome one ready to install. Anything inparticular I should be aware of?

Not to brag, but little ole me did it all by myself. It is not hard. It would go twice as fast if you had a helping hand but not necessary. Need all the right tools (lift, 1/2" torque wrench, proper metric sockets etc) but this is one of the easiest things to do. It sure helps to have a belt tension gauge to get the belt right when you tighten everything back up. Now that you mention it...I still have my chrome swingarm sitting in the garage, I cant wait to see it on the bike...maybe I will get around to that this weekend too.

Not hard at all. When I did my 240 kit it was the first time I had the back of the bike apart. Everything went smooth. Like said before just make sure you have the right tools and a shop manual and you'll be fine.
