Well thats what I was thinking, but I am trying to figure out why Poseidon's is clean where the axle shaft goes, and the swampworks looks unfinished. Maybe they changed the design in this area?
I just purchased a swampworks 2 piece swingarm. Andy told me that he no longer provides the caps. He no longer works with the company that made them for him. I was lucky enough to get one from a member here. I totally agree it looks unfinishedWell thats what I was thinking, but I am trying to figure out why Poseidon's is clean where the axle shaft goes, and the swampworks looks unfinished.

I need to follow up with John. He took some measurement from my swing arm at MAM last year and was going to make me some axle caps to take the place of the flat one that came with the swingarm and a matching one for the other side. I'll post more info on it when I hear back from him.I just purchased a swampworks 2 piece swingarm. Andy told me that he no longer provides the caps.

Andy sent me the link to where he bought the caps for his swing arms a while back. It was a a company that made railings for porches, decks, etc. I looked, but I don't think I saved the address. It was for an end cap of a pipe style railing. The one he sent me a link to were brass IIRC. Then you would need to have it powder coated.More then likely you can purchase that cap at Home Depot.

JC at MeanCycles direct shipped my 1.1 front springs to Chip and Andy (Some 9) made new spacers and shipped them to Chip for me. Andy wouldn't even let me reimburse him for shipping, let alone what ever time and money he spent making them for me. This guy never ceases to amaze me with his generosity to the members here!!!
Chip installed the new springs and spacers and shipped my old stock ones back to me.

Just realized, I hadn't posted any pics of the wheels in this thread yet. They are Xtreme Machine's "Execute" in their Xqusite Cut. I bought these from Coastal Moto. :bigthumbsup:
18x10 rear with a 280 Metz and 18x4.25 front with a 160 Metz. There are more pictures and info in this thread on my wheels if you are interested.

I think I've read over this post probably 10 times since I last read it - start to finish - Still amazing.Thanks! :bigthumbsup:
Thanks! There are several of us in the Richmond area on here. We are putting together a Virginia ride. It is in the Virginia section at the bottom of the main forum page here. Check it out and join us if you are able to.Very nice man! Just got on this forum recently. I live in Glen allen area. Nice to see someone with a bully close by. I'm still learning how to use this lol. But be cool to link up sometime. I think k I may have seen you at a mission bike night not sure. Anyways looks awesome.
I didn't have that issue with the signals. Did you change out the turn signal relay for the LED signals?I think I've read over this post probably 10 times since I last read it - start to finish - Still amazing.
Two questions - I bought the raw design flat leds front and rear just like you (relay and everything) but it seems to flicker the turn indicators in the tach when the bike is running. Did you run into this problem? I might have wired something wrong.
Also, I am going to take apart my forks and either chrome or powdercoat the top piece. Did you take pics of this process or did you just send away to get dismantled?
Thanks! I do spend a lot of time admiring! Hahaha. I need to get her out and ride her more often. Been riding the Magnum mostly this year. Just clicked over 10k miles on it last weekend. Won't be a year old until Oct 1st.Simply OUTSTANDING! Fantastic pictures, great write up, and puts my LE to SHAME lol. Hell I would never go to work, I would just sit around all day looking at her!
