    How about big "stickers" made of carbon fiber?
    Another option instead of stickers is what I have on my bike:

    I ride in the rocks a lot and I scratched/dented/beat the snot out of the swingarm on my bike previous to the 950.. so I put these on the 950 right when I bought it and they've worked well ever since (they are beat up... swingarm underneath looks virgin).

    Hope this helps; food for thought :freaky

    oh... Carbon Performance

    :rofl

    sorry about that.. I've my head up m'arse this evening.

    You can usually find them on eBay but they do have a website if you google it.
    It took about 2 weeks for me to get mine in the US post shipped from over there; I bought mine through their ebay store.

    Dont know about the carbon ones. They look good on Geeks though.

    Now I also want some WP Suspension stickers for my forks.

    Where will this end??

    $190 for the carbon shields on my bike is a bit more than stickers cost... But on the upside they will protect your swingarm from further scratches ... And they are a heckuva lot cheaper than a new swingarm :eek1

    You could whore it out with everything they sell :evil Carbon performance also makes fork covers (btw on mine there are also a set of WP stickers underneath :norton)

    I used the best outdoor clear caulk I could find. About 5 years and counting with no issues so far.

    Always glad to help amigo. :lol3

    Always good to hear from West Oz. I would love to come down and ride with you crazy MF'ers. Maybe you blokes should stick to the bitumen more so you don't scratch up the swing arm? :lol3 :lol3 :lol3
