Jon-O...I had the same troubles. I also had to ream out the holes in the bikes pivot bracket to get it to bolt on right. The holes in the swingarm are very slightly off.
Sammy G- I want to compile more feedback before this goes to the wiki. Right now its only a handful of responses regarding the swingarm performance. I still would like to hear a few more of Terry's thoughs
Human-THAT would be too much Chrome. I like color and Chrome accents. Plus the color on the bike is origional and kinda minty..
