    Takegawa aluminum swingarm

    .

    We have a Used Takegawa Aluminum swingarm that had a failed weld.
    Takegawa wouldn't warranty it, so we did for the customer.
    Now we would like to recoup a little of our whopping loss (Brand new this sold for $550).
    .
    For a potential buyer of this swing arm, it should be an easy cleanup/grind and then just reweld it.......and save a ton of money.
    This Aluminum Swing arm is super light weight.... specially compared with the stock steel swing arm.

    Asking $195

    Not sure if this is a compliment towards HR, or a dig at Takegawa. Or both. Lol.

    For anyone who considers this, please remember that welding aluminum isn't the same as steel. You actually need to know how to do it and you shouldn't just run in there blind with a MIG welder. Probably doubly important as if this thing goes out while youre riding, you might be going for a slide.

    Meant it as a compliment to HR. Takegawa evidently replaced this one time for the customer and said no to the second replacement because it was raced. They should have stepped up given what they charge and their reputation.

    .

    LOL... very well said.

    We wouldn't even recommend someone doing this themselves, unless they were a professional welder.

    Welding Alum. is a science. (if you want it to hold up it is)

    So you definitely, want a qualified good Alum. Welder to do this repair.

    For them............ it would be like tying their shoe laces.

    But, for avg. joe welder.............. not soo much.
