    Broke my extended swingarm recently and I warrantied it and got a new one, but still having some issues.
    Got the swingarm last December and I said I wanted a +2. Built my chain for the extended swingarm and then I broke it this past month. Warrantied the broken one and said I needed a +2 cause that's what I said requested when I got the first one. Got the new one in and installed it and found that the chain was very loose. After looking at the length of the bike it turns out sshop sent me a +3 instead of a +2 as requested. Then I emailed them my problem and I later find a reply of to return the swingarm we have to charge 50 dollars for powdercoat and 40 for shipping. For a 90 return along with the other 40 in shipping for the replace meant I found myself looking at other brands such as Tyson racing. Anyone have a Tyson racing swingarm? I do not want to got through the same thing again.

    Sorry tohear about your problems with youre swinger. I am running a +4 Tyson swing arm. It is the older style , it looks just like the swingarm shop swingers (square tubing). It hasnt failed me yet but im not ballz to the wall riding either. The newer style has the round tubing. Are they better then the previous ones?

    If you have any doubts that the tyson would hold up than i would spend the xtra $ and get a Lonestar swinger.

    What I would like to know is. What type of riding do you do and was it rider error,/ Crap landing, High jump landing on flat ground?

    The powder coat on your arm looks really crap and is pealing off.

    I'm going to be running the heavy duty +3 version of there swinger.
