Think I'm gonna take it to work with me tomorrow along with my old stock steel swingarm and toss them both up on the digital scale in the shipping department just to see what the weight difference between the two is. I'm betting the Metmachex is going to be heavier.
I'm interested to see the difference with my slotted arm. I think from memory mine was 250 grams heavier than a late alloy arm. The pivot bosses and front of the arm is big gear. At least it isn't out on the end of the arm away from fulcrum. I'll dig out the weights I had. I'm modding the axle blocks and replacing the solid axle with the original hollow Duc axle. I have seen a setup on the eccentric style arm adding a longer bolt on the eccentric with a spool so you can use a rear stand. You would still be able to get the axle nut off using a socket.
