My opinions -
1) Known to remove panties at up to 100 feet away
2) With that equipment and experience you could put a single sided swingarm on a John Deere riding lawnmower - but why?
3) Probably lighter but weaker in the sense that it puts unequal stress on a frame not designed for loads in those vectors. Adding more steel to overcome that probably brings the weight right back up. Better off investing in lightweight wheels and staying with an SS/SP ally swingarm over the steel CR one. Functionally, I think the steel swingarm is going to remain trouble free for a lifetime at a very minor weight penalty when the only improvement the suspension really needs is a fine shock to replace the marginal CR stock one.
in sum, a SSSA will make it much easier to mount exhaust pipes under the tail and I would say that is the primary reason it has been done to other SS bikes.
