my 06 swingy cracked in a bunch of places. replaced it with a LSR and proceeded to crack that one in 2 months. they replaced it with a new beefier one and so far so good. I wanted a savior from walsh but the $1500 is a bit much for a swingy/link.

Yah I don't believe in landing nicely...I ride like the oversized ogre that I am...the only swing-arms I've met that could hold up to me was my 400ex and the old Predator(of course they both weigh a ton), mostly I think the damage is done on acceleration and through the whoops

Walsh let me down again

Don't think for one second that the Walsh set-up is unbreakable. I just broke my 2nd in a season and a half. It broke at the main beam on the right side. It's basically broke in half. I'm not knocking Walsh but, 1500 and 1500. I could do a lot with that kinda money.

Swing-Arms take a lot of abuse, and most MX racers will eventually break a stock or aftermarket swing-arm over a period of time no matter who makes it. We have a Black chromoly swing-arm for 499.00 currently in stock if your interested give us a call.

I split my LSR in one race and have had 5 repairs over 2 seasons. Picked up a Walsh so hopefully this will fix my prob. Like KB said, swingys take a ton of abuse. Kinda weird that a Savior would crack just doing mx, it's not that hard on parts. Maybe shock settings?

I was showing a buddy of mine my swing arm. He was a lil curious, decided to look at his. He said he might have ten hours on his. He has an SR swingarm. His was crack from the shock tube about 6 in up towards the motor.
