Anyone out there got a swingarm for a 2010 versys 650, willing to pay a decent price for one.

Join the club... the racing guys want them for lightweight racing, hence why you see Versys for sale with ER6 swingarms on them.

They are rarer than rocking horse shite and what’s on EBay fetch a pretty penny!

was lucky enough to get one for £150 from breaker on ebay I punted it on to a TT racer for £335 without even unpackaging it. As said rare and most breakers already know their value to TT lightweight racers you'll be lucky to find one. New they are over £500 + VAT for the bare swingarm so you'll need spacers bearings and sundries no change from nearly £800 from Kawasaki!

 Cheers for the replies I realised they were hard to come by but I've sorted it today, I had one of the
front sprocket nuts that would not shift even after 1 hour of windy gun & heat treatment at a well
respected motorcycle mechanic so I thought I will jam back sprocket with a metal bar through the
swingarm, result a hairline crack in the brace weld near the axle, I eventually ground the nut off
the front sprocket. So I am left with this cracked weld, aluminium welders are as rare as the swingarms
but I fortunately got told about a guy Simon at Kings Fabrications near my home town of Darlington so emailed him
over the weekend and dropped it off this morning should be done tomorrow, bonus is he rides a ZZR1400
so obviously he is aware of the safety aspects plus a lot cheaper than a new swingarm.

Picked my swingarm up today, lovely job & not expensive.
If anyone needs aluminium welding or fabrication
this is the man in the North East, Kings Fabrications.
Simon King is his name & his number is 07739206364.
He is also a Kawi rider ZZR14000.

Ouch! If you ever need to jam the rear wheel to get a nut off, I was always told use a piece of wood.

Glad you got it sorted.
