My take is: Do you want a proper repair or a simple patch up?

With that sort of dent I think it might be out of alignment. I wouldn't be happy with any chemical filling or whatever you had in mind.

Sometimes we just have to bite the bullet and stump up cash for a proper job.

I just took my swingarm off for the first time a few days ago and it was simple. I would just replace it. Take the opportunity to upgrade to a 954 swinger while you are at it. They look better and are lighter so you can tell yourself you are just upgrading

Re: Can i repair swingarm?

My 93 has a few dings in the swing arm from an off (not mine), I just live with it.

One is almost through the bracing, the other is where the left peg dented the side wall of the main arm.

I can post pics later, but would like a better pic of yours.

Re: Can i repair swingarm?

If it's cosmetic then you will only make it look even worse by adding filler, unless you are going to paint the entire swingarm. If it's dented bad enough to weaken the arm, then chemical metal won't help.
