    This size has four sections makes it ez to keep straight...

    I think this blue would look badass on your grom https://www.amazon.com/customTAYLOR3...a-744688697189
    Ah all aluminum Vortex? I was hoping they made hybrids (aluminum center, but steel teeth) for the Grom, but I couldn't find one.

    Thanks for the link on the decals. They probably would look cool.

    How much did that swingarm cost shipped to your door? I really like it.

    I better take mine to the dealer to show them rust before my warranty is up then.

    Yeah all aluminum, the RS8 superlites are probly best choice for longevity and strength.

    Swingarm was $158.00 shipped to my door and took about a week to get. When going to website add to cart, the price shows more than what you will actually pay... My total was like $18 cheaper than what cart total showed, price came down on the item but shipping stayed at $35.00

    That's honestly cheap. Gel seats are about the same price. I may have to pick one up for a winter project.

    Does the Kepspeed swinger come with a chain slider? I don't see one in their photos and the chain would destroy that pretty aluminum.

    Cheap... Naw you mean its inexspensive lol

    I was reluctant at which brand to go with other than G-Craft, but my wallet hates me sooooo...

    After researching and asking on FB groups no real feedback other than Spyker and those Msx accessories Ali-Express type brands, Kepspeed looked to be better quality.

    Originally was going to go with Mnnthbx swingarm bushing kit but the cost of the bushings the tool set to install and shipping
    was fairly close in cost as the Keepspeed swingarm which comes with needle bearings, looks better than stock and alot lighter.

    I missed out on exchange rate fluctuation on the kepspeed - it was US$118 before. $148 shipped. I'm now waiting for it to hopefully come back down in price and I'll get one too.

    I had my chain adjusted too tight and it broke the chain slider off. I ended up drilling a couple holes and putting the stock chain slider on it. The wheel doesn't look straight when the hash marks are lined up on mine. I just line it up by eye and ignore the hash marks. They didn't have the black one in stock when I ordered so I got the shiny one. I think it was around $130 when I got mine.

    This one has a little black plastic-type pad closest to sprocket, wish it was longer though. Havent put chain on yet so I'll be mindful to see if its properly placed, I'll try to remember to take a picture for you.

    What color you plan on getting? I almost went with the raw aluminum with brace, but wasnt sure if I would like the look of the angle the brace gives.

    I was planning on silver without brace. Stock swingarm is black so wanted the contrast.

    WTF? for real... Im going take a digital caliper to it and make my own hash marks if necessary, thanks for the heads up.

    How long ago did you get yours? If its been a while hopefully the quality has gotten better.

    Also thinking about putting stock chain gaurd on but not to sure about drilling into the swing arm.
