trx450rlude, i may try it what length do you think would be good??
What are you planning on doin with it? Like MX, trails, drag, etc. More details of what riding you do and why you want to do it will be helpful

I wouldnt recomend it. Im sure its been done but i wouldnt want to trust a weld on something that critical. Maybe for trail riding but definately not for mx. Just go with an aftermarket one.

A 1 inch or mabey even a 1 1/4 inch would do the job. I would not weld it though, it will be worth the money to do it right and get an aftermarket swingarm.
