Just wondering if anyone has had any problems with swingarms other than bushings.I raced last weekend in the GNCC in GA.Thought i had a flat tire halfway thru 3rd lap.Stopped and checked.No flat but swingarm was cracked behind shock.I didn't hit anything other than normal racing obsticals.When i got home I pulled the swingarm off and it was in 3 pieces.
Swingarm was fine at the start.I always check everything after every race.
Anyone else had this problem?

I too am a victim of the broken swing arm, broken at the brake line holder and the main croos support in front of the shock mount. Did not hit anything or crash, just from normal abuse. I am shocked that it broke the way it did, almost like it just tore the metal!

Join the club.. I broke 3 last season the last being at the unadilla gncc iv been looking in to aftermarket ones as it ruined my season.
walsh racing has one. All of the stock ones seem to break in the same point.

Why not skin them over with gusseting / plating to beef em up……. but by then it's just easier to make a new one…….

mainly seems to be the XC……..
