The series production swingarm is produced to be low priced. Look at the chain adjusters and the seat of the rear axle. You can bend the original swingarm by hand. No shit!
In my opinion this alloy swingarm is more torsion-resistant than the original one and it works accurately without tolerance. There is no massive difference by the weight I think.
Have you ever replaced the Norton rear wheel? Alone? With this alloy swingarm you can do this in a few minutes including chain adjusting. And alone of course. That's my experience with a similar looking alloy swingarm on my XS650.
For race trackers it could be interesting to play with the wheelbase if ther's enough place. I had done this on my Thruxton with success.
The owner of the alloy swingarm Norton told me that he had tested the alloy-swingarm directly compared to the original swingarm. A difference like day and night he says
Anyway, I will ask Mr. Thiel about the price in the near future. I'm curious about his response
BTW - for race trackers there is a ONE07 racing generator that you may find useful. doesn't kick in until about 4,200 rpm Direct replacement, no cutting wires.
