Here is a picture of one side of my swingarm. The other side is fine. Before I commit to my bike (and start modding) do you think this will be an issue at any point (resale value, technical perspective etc.) Is a repair possible? I already have to buy axle block sliders instead of standard sliders because as you can see the mounting point on the swingarm is disfigured.

May be able to redrill and tap the threads, another option is to have someone tig weld a new mount on ur swing arm. Could take some time because u will have to dismount the swing arm.

Just weld a new 8mm boss on there.
Yes, it will effect your resale value, of course. You can probably find a used swingarm on Ebay, if, and when you decide to sell it.

hmm, i say youll be fine. you just wont be able to install rear spools no more. and will have to find another way to lift your bike up when needed..
worse case... buy a new swingarm and swap them out..

How did you pull this off?
Low speed cornering lowside.

Thanks for the feedback guys, I already have a swingarm stand so raising the bike shouldn't be a problem.

Any other ideas/suggestions are welcome.
