swing arm

I have in my possession a brand new in the box swing arm for an 08 09 blade, price inc vat from the parts shop is 1800. whats it worth second hand?
Just thinking i its worth silly money i may get shot , if its not i'll keep it as a spare.
i'm guessing its worth very little second hand

Can you tell us the accurate weight, length (pivot to axle centres) and width of the pivot maybe?
Why have you got it if you don't need it?

I got knocked off my bike in June, low speed spill but i'm fully comp so no massive drama. one of the things to be replaced was the swing arm as the bobbin had dug into the road protecting the swing arm but threading the bobbin thread eyelet. roll on to August, garage still have the bike and i'm off to the alps for 2 weeks, got the bike and new bits back from the garage (after paying my excess ) and promptly fixed the eyelet and have a brand spanking swing arm left over to my name.
its for an rr9 blade which i'm almost posiive is the same swing arm as the rr8. i can take measurements but have nothing more technical than a tape measure.

A tape would be sufficient to show if there's a significant difference in length and should be accurate enough for the width of the pivot as that can easily be dressed or shimmed to fit.
I would think if there's a significant weight saving that would be most appealing to people.
I have an '06 1000RR swingarm I should be able to strip for comparative weight if you like.
