Hey my fellow rider friends and HONDA lovers alike. I bought a swingarm off ebay cuz mine got rashed up last year and I just wanted to get a new one. The one I got is mint shape except for a gouge in the little machined surface around where the front bearing housings are. I guess thats the best way to describe it youll be able to see what im talkn bout once u see the pic. Iam going to get it powdercoated along with a bunch of other parts but before I do I wana make sure it can b fixed before I send it away. I was thinking scuff the area up a bit and apply a high quality structural adhesive like a semkit and sand it down to make it all good again. Some advise is in need here lol...here in hali..Nova Scotia its almost riding season. Gotta start gettin this s○■☆ done. THANKS GUYS

If it was me id use All metal. Iv fixed lots of alloy rims that have chips like that and they still hold up great. Only thing is if your PC guy wants to sand blast it, It will be blasted out. So what ever prep work is needed for PC needs to be done 1st. If yeed any advice on how to use this pm me Ill help you out best way I can. Good luck.

Make sure the surface is smooth and leave it, pretty sure you'll never see it when mounted on the bike and it doesn't affect the structure or operation at all.

Sand it down a little to make the rough area smoother and have it powdercoated. Powdercoat wont stick to any bondo or anything like that, plus once you bake the swingarm after it gets coated, the bondo wouldnt withstand the 350-450F
