I am think about ordering one of these to replace my scraped up stock steel one. Without bracing but polished with eccentric adjuster, it will run about $750shipped! Super cheap compared to DPM or stock.

Anyone use them before? I see euro streetfighters with them alot.

THANKS!

One of those has been on my list for quite some time along with the bore kit, rods, porting, wheels, and paint.

I wonder how hard it would be to retro-fit some adjusters like these P45's to our existing swingers? Doesn't look like it would be that tough. Maybe even modify our existing hardware to work. I think all you'd have to do is weld and tap the end plates or make new ones---and somehow fix them to the swingarm. Is there any reason not to weld the end plates to the swingarm? Do the internal OEM sliders ever seize up or strip out?

Those are nice looking where did you find those? They look kind of like the ones I made see below. I have worked with the eccentric ones and don't like them. They change the ride height when you adjust the chain. Plus if there is any slop in the keys which there always is the wheels needs very careful aligning as it flops sideways as well as being crooked.

After I welded my swingarm together I had it heat treated cost me $200. If I was going to buy one of their arms I would buy one with the P45 adjuster.
