I may be slightly biased, but I think that is TOTALLY AWESOME.

Just out of curiosity, why didn't you start with a BW350 swingarm that already has a single-shock set up?

I have a spare bw 200 thats the reason for the swing arm ,my wife and kid are ridding 200's . Fat tires is way better for the type of terrains we ride

I just had a look at a 350 swing arm its exactly the same except for the shock bracket it dosent change the fact that i had to cut it to make room for the cantiliver cr suspension , it takes more room but double the travel and if i not back to stock form the air box wasent going to fit anymore . The swing arm is far from done i may stretch it as well
