    \r\n While i cant offer personal experience I can share with you what ive picked up about the different swingarm mods.
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\nYou mention 2 Options through Mean Cycles but if im not mistaken there are/were I think 4 different designs which were (listed in no particular order)
    \r\n1. a modified Stock Swingarm. The stock driveshaft side of the swingarm is ground out at the area where the tire would rub enough to account for tire expansion at highway speeds. Considering there have been more then a couple bikes where the UNMODIFIED stock Swingarm broke out of the blue with No Obvious reason you wouldnt catch me putting one of those on my bike! Purposefully removing material on my Swingarm in order to squeeze a fatter tire in the space is not Something I would Considered or Advocate but that is Just MY Opinion and there have been members who have went this route and couldnt be happier!
    \r\n
    \r\n2. A Rounded Tube aftermarket Swingarm made by cyclehouse (version 1 i believe). If i remember correctly this version was 1 piece but was made to allow the clearance needed to fit up to a 300mm, maybe even 310mm. This came in chrome or preped for paint. There were alot of warping and fitment issues which turned it into more of a project that most people were not equipped to handle as they were expecting, and rightly so, A Out of the Box Bolt on swap which wasnt the case. This was however the Best Looking version IMHO, but looks mean nothing if it dont work!
    \r\n
    \r\n3. Version 2 from Cycle House ( As i stated above I may be wrong about who the maker of which design is so please verify this info) This version was made from rectangular stock material on the right side that came in 2 pieces. Once mounted and properly fitted to the bike you will now have the ability to Unbolt the Swingarm portion (right side) without the need to remove the entire part.
    \r\nI do remember a few minor fitment issues but by far this is the style most members seemed to be the most satisfied with.
    \r\n
    \r\n4. The 4th style is a knockoff of the 2 piece cyclehouse kit version 2 and i dont know much beyond that or if that is even close to being factual!\r\n

    The 2 piece swing arm (#3 above) was not from Cyclehouse. It was sold by Swampworks. There were 2 versions of it as well because the first version had a couple of reports of a weak area where the shock mount was. The second version had that area beefed up.
    \n
    \nI have the Swampworks 2 piece swing arm on my 9. 2 piece is the way to go. It makes tire changes a breeze as long as you have short exhaust. I’m not familiar with the 2 versions MeanCycles has now. I would need to check them out, but if it is the same design as what Swampworks had, that is what I would recommend.\r\n

    \r\n I\'m planning on buying one of these Mean Cycles arms next year, prepping for the next tire change. May or may not go for the 300, but the arm will make tire changes easier for a ten inch 280 combo. Has anyone here bought and fitted one of these arms yet? Because I recall some had some bad problems with one of these two-piece arms. The sheriff dude down in Texas being one of them. I recall he had a terrible time of it.\r\n

    Im not sure who was making them, but I was under the impression it was not CycleHouse as they had competing products. I may be incorrect, but I think I remember someone saying that Andyís dad had something to do with the design or production of them. I could be wrong tho, so donít quote me on that. \r\n

    Me as well. Going to have to think really hard about dropping the kind of dough they want for a part that doesn\'t work properly. Don\'t really care about the welds, but the suspension parts not lining up is a big NO for me. Guess I won\'t be doing a 300 after all.\r\n

    \r\n FuturR and I have had some very in-depth conversations regarding the 300 Swing Arms being sold by MEANCYCLES. One of the major problems we found with all of them is that MEANCYCLES has produced absolutely NO information, specs, sales data, or customer reviews to validate the quality, durability, dependability, or fitment of either of the Swing Arms they provide. It sounds to me as though MEANCYCLES saw an opportunity left by the void created when Swampworks decided to shutdown their operation. But, MEANCYCLES has failed miserably to provide ANY assurance to potential buyers that their Swing Arms are safe, durable, dependable, made of high-quality/appropriate gauge steel, and accurately manufactured to fit perfectly on the M109R bikes consistently. At the cost of $1050.00 or any lower cost, having an inferior or defective Swing Arm installed could possibly create a matter of life or death for M109R owners. Thereís just too much at risk for any manufacturer or distributor of Swing Arms to ever lack giving customers complete and concise information regarding such a critical component to the safe riding of potential customers.
    \n
    \nIíve personally spoken with at least 3 employees at MEANCYCLES over the last several months, having requested some facts/data to support their claim regarding the quality and fitment of their Swing Arm products. Each time, neither employee could provide any sort of information other than to tell me they have sold many of each of them. They donít have any customer reviews posted on their site about any of them either, which is a big red flag for me.\r\n

    Has anyone spoke to JC directly. If his website is correct, contacting CycleHouse might yield better info. It would be good to know if the 2 piece swingarm is the same design and manufacturer Swampworks used or if it is a new design or manufacturer.\r\n

    \r\n I know a very few have done it in the past, but thereís ABSOLUTELY no way or reason on earth I would ever notch the stock Swing Arm or any Swing Arm, thereby very possibly compromising the integrity and strength of the metal in that area of the Swing Arm (it is not very thick there to begin with), which could/would also compromise my own safety. Moreover, weíre talking about using a 300 tire here. To fit a 300 tire on a 10Ē rear wheel inside of a notched stock Swing Arm, one would very likely have to make a notch so deep into the metal of the stock Swing Arm that it would create a hole in the Swing Arm. No matter what one tries to do, a 300 rear setup is not going to fit safely into a notched stock Swing Arm without creating an accident waiting to happen. No where on the Swing Arm should the metal be cut into for any reason. The risks are just too high in my opinion.\r\n

    The OP is wanting to go to a 300 rear tire setup. That canít be accomplished without going to an aftermarket 300 Swing Arm and modifying the rear inner fender. The 280 setup you have on your 9 is is nice, and many are running with that setup. The brand of wheel is used doesnít matter, as long as the wheel is made to fit an M109R. Changing the Swing Arm is not required when running any brand 10Ē wheel made to fit an M109R with a 280 rear tire mounted.\r\n

    As long as you like Metzeler tires that is a good option. If anyone wants Avon, they have to go with a 300 swingarm and modify the inner fender. I’m running a 280 Metzeler, but I have the 2piece swingarm and I’ve already modified the inner fender. That way I always have options. Options are good. What happens if Metzeler decides to quit making a 280, or if they redesign it and their 280 ends up being closer to a 300 in width? Kind of like Dunlop’s 250 being more like a 260 - 265 width tire. If that ever happens, your only options will be to either get the 300 swing arm and mod the inner fender, go back to stock width wheel on the rear, or hope another manufacturer sees and fills the gap by making a 280.
    \n
    \nThat was the determining factor in why I did the mods for a 300 when I did my build, even tho I knew I would be running a 280 for my first 2 rear tires. After that, I have options. \r\n

    That was very smart of you P. Although that was not my motive or approach to going with the 300 2-Piece Swing Arm, Modded Inner Fender, and 300 METZELER Tire on a 10Ē rear wheel, Iím glad I have those options in the event something like you described actually happens.\r\n

    \r\n Yeah, I currently have a 10” wheel with the 280 metzler. Was just looking to go to the 300 with aftermarket arm. Starting to wonder if it’s worth it.\r\n

    Don\'t throw in the towel yet BP. If I were you, I would try contacting JC at MEANCYCLES and have him provide you information to confirm the 2-Piece Swing Arm his company is now selling for use on the M109R is being manufactured by Cycle House from the exact, 100% duplicated design rights they bought/obtained from SwampWorks Inc. I would also ask him if MEANCYCLES is offering any warranty and company backing in the event the Swing Arm malfunctions, or turns up any defects in the future. That is exactly what SwampWorks provided, in terms of service/support after the sale. If it is in fact the same 2-Piece Swing Arm Design originally created by SwampWorks Inc, it is a FABULOUS Swing Arm, and it is worth it not to give up hope just yet. Frankly, after reviewing the cost listed on their website, I think MEANCYCLES has formed a monopoly surrounding their 2-Piece Swing Arm, and as a result, has overpriced their cost for the Swing Arm, because they know thereís absolutely no competition out there for them, as a distributor of M109R Swing Arms. Thereís absolutely no reason that Swing Arm should cost $1050.00.\r\n

    \r\n The price sucks, but that’s just smart business on their part if they can sell them. Supply and demand. Now my issue is paying that much and it potentially needing modified. Even that wouldn’t be earth shattering if I was going black. It could then be modified and recoated. I would go chrome, which would not be able to be modified without messing it up. Bottom line is if im paying a premium price, that **** should fit perfect without needing modified in any way .\r\n

    \r\n I just spoke to JC, he was pretty open to his thoughts and the history behind these arms. He also seems willing to stand behind the product if something went wrong. Just wanted to put that out there since there has been a lot of discussion on the subject.\r\n

    I just spoke to JC, he was pretty open to his thoughts and the history behind these arms. He also seems willing to stand behind the product if something went wrong. Just wanted to put that out there since there has been a lot of discussion on the subject.

    ^^^^ My sentiments exactly. He SHOULD get JC to provide the guarantee you articulated in writing via email, or in a typed letter mailed to his address prior to making the purchase.\r\n

Even that wouldnít be earth shattering if I was going black. It could then be modified and recoated. I would go chrome, which would not be able to be modified without messing it up. Bottom line is if im paying a premium price, that **** should fit perfect without needing modified in any way .

    I\'m with you man, I wouldn\'t want to pay that price, then have to whack it up to make it work, as FuturR has said he had to do. That\'s what concerns me, that we have a guy fitting one now who has had issues with it. All claims to the contrary, he had to cut off parts and weld new parts on to make it work. That\'s a BIG NO-GO for me. I\'m not necessarily planning on going 300, but just making removing and installing a ten inch 280 combo easier. And the possibility of going 300 if I choose would then be there.\r\n

    No BP, smart business is not gouging customerís pockets with excessive pricing, simply because you have the market cornered. The reality of business is that a company will only have a leg up in a given market for a short while before other competitors eventually enter the market with an improved product at a lesser cost. Therefore, if you have gouged consumers with pricing while you had an anomaly on a product you will definitely lose a ton of business when new entrants to the market manifest themselves and their new products, providing they have a quality product to offer. Smart business is to bring a new product to market that is tried, tested, true (through R&D), and priced reasonably so as to attract many new and future potential consumers, who are NOT excessively concerned or doubtful about the quality, accuracy, dependability, and validity of the new product. This is basic business acumen, as Iím a business major who over the last 3.5 years has obtained a BBA with a 3.918 GPA and an MBA with a 3.975 GPA. Iím not trying to toot my own horn here. I just provided that info to let you know Iím qualified and educated to make the statements Iím making, without them being ďjust my opinions.Ē Put simply, JC is not a bad guy at all, but he and MEANCYCLES is definitely using the wrong approach/method/manner/strategy to introducing their new Swing Arm products to the market. The most impactful reasons SwampWorks had so much success with the sales of their Swing Arm was because they were manufactured with quality and accuracy, were priced reasonably ($650.00 to $750.00), and information about the product was publicized, published, and disseminated in communication circles where many M109R owners frequented. It resulted in an explosion of sales, as soon as the product was available for purchase.
    \n
    \nFirst and foremost, if the Swing Arm needs to be modified to fit you have a huge problem right out of the gate. Secondly, the very first thing to do upon receipt of the product is to have it test fitted to find out if it has been manufactured to spec for accuracy of fit. Obviously, prior to the purchase you should get in writing that you will be allowed to send it back at the expense of MEANCYCLES for a full refund if it doesnít fit perfectly without ANY sort of modifications.\r\n

    \r\n All the information in this post was excellent. I do have a question though. Since I changed my mind now about the 300 setup. Which swingarm for the 280 setup is the preferred choice? Also where is the best place to purchase it? Thanks

    \r\n Plenty of us here have a ten inch rim with a 280 on it using the stock swingarm. It\'s not an issue. A little hard to get the rim/tire in there. but there is a youtube video showing exactly how to do it.
    \n
    \nI had planned on buying one of these swingarms next year, not sure I will now. Maybe the one-piece is a better option? I understand it\'s still easier getting the tire in that than the stock one.\r\n

    I noticed many people have it set up like you. But I am so interested in getting the custom swingarm for the looks and for the ease of tire changing.

    As I said, I am too. I am just unsure if either of these swingarms are worth purchasing at the prices they are asking. And the issue of them not working out-of-the-box, needing modifications to make them work.
    \n
    \nBut both are available at Mean Cycles.
    \n
    \nTwo piece Cycle House. $1050.95. http://www.meancycles.com/store/part...?PartID=229922
    \n
    \nOne piece Cycle House. $999.95. http://www.meancycles.com/store/part...?partID=213403
    \n
    \nNo mention of this one though. It\'s labeled as a two piece custom pointy 300/310 swingarm. Doomsday Machines. $1850. http://www.meancycles.com/store/part...?partID=228879
    \n
    \nWhat about this one, Sumo X? This one is a remanufactured stock arm, so no doubt about it fitting. Also $749.95. Also has a ten year warranty. Nice! http://www.meancycles.com/store/part...?partID=228829\r\n

    IMHO,
    \n
    \n 280 on 10" rim setup is very easy install on OEM swing arm (even if you have to remove exhaust),
    \n
    \nbut looking at your album you only might need to remove the Scorpion Tips.
    \n
    \nSo if it is a chrome look you are after, this would be your most reasonable option:

    \r\n Definitely keep us informed BP. Sooner or later, this Metzeler 280 is going to need replacing. If you don\'t have any problems, that\'ll be reassuring.\r\n

      Default Meancycles 300 arm options

      Does anyone have any experience with the two options meancycles has listed for 300 swing arms?
