    Default Banshee Swingarm extenstion

    Generally I fabricate complete swingarms for clients out of 4130 chromoly in either round or aerostrut tubing, however, a friend of mine needed his stock swingarm lengthened and didn't have the money for a complete new swingarm so I just lengthened his stock one. Here are few before and after pics. I don't have any of the swingarm on the quad as of yet. I just finished painting the swingarm this morning and will install it tomorrow. Thanks for looking, Mike.



    This the the swingarm prior to cutting.


    Here is the swingarm cut and with the extension pieces mocked into place

    Here are a few pictures of my welds.




    This is the sub-structure fabricated and ready to weld between the two halves.

    I use to have a Banshee and the problem I see is that your weld will not match up to the factories, they are too pretty.
    Here is mine, at 50, I run mine real fast, "for a short distance", as the younger one chase me, then shut it down and say, hey, already won, why go further.

    Thanks for the compliment. I never seem to be quite satisfied with my welds but they seem to get better with practice.

    I like your quad. That is a nice looking Fourtrax. Mike.
