@ $350.00 I just can't justify the cost of the Ti version, was mighty tempted though.
There's no justification involved, only obsession...

Don't forget the DUCORG15 coupon code that gives you 10% off...

I am rethinking about that beaten up Multi... If the engine is decent, it'd probably sell on the board cheaply. If I could sell that, the swingarm, forks, and a few other pieces it might fund a DS1000 for me - also, I could keep the clutch as a starting point. I'll probably go look at it tomorrow, and if it looks half decent make a low ball offer. IF IF IF... Stay tuned

I get it...........not throwing rocks by any means!

You know the bolts are available stand alone right? The swingarm pivot was about the only piece of steel on the bike with little or no corrosion. Living in AZ, your's should be fine. Pull it grease the bearings, coat it with grease and reinstall. Get the pretty bolts and save a coupl'a hundred bucks. Spend the difference somewhere else.

FWIW, I bet the Ti bolts weigh more than the stock Alu ones.

You're probably right about the Ti weighing more. I bet the inner part is much lighter though. Nonetheless, it's about the same price as a steering damper.

Also, I wonder whether there's benefit to a stiffer swingarm pivot. Maybe not noticeable by itself, but a contributor to a cleaner ride?

Buy the damper, much more bang for the buck.

Trying to get the swingarm pivot out is proving difficult. I removed the stay washer clips from each side, the the nut hidden under the swingarm protector, but the bolt associated with the nut won't budge. WD40 over night and still no movement. More WD40 and time I guess

STOP! That's not a bolt, it's a wedge. Put the nut back on & gently tap it out with a punch.

Will do in a few hours. No worries, I used patience this time!
