    Yakuza Kumicho Swingarm

    I broke my Swingarm on my IH yakuza Kumicho 2005. Size 19" I am looking to replace the swingarm, but I don't have any luck finding one. My friend told me the swingarm can be weld. I don't feel safe. I rather find a new. any assist on find one wil be appreciate.

    You should try contacting Randall Scott cycles. The Kumicho is still in production only under another name. (Airborne Taka). They'd probably hook you up with one for a price.

    I wouldn't ride an aluminum part that has been "rewelded". That'll only lead to things surgery will fix,

    Best of luck.

    don't get your bike welded....it will be weaker in other areas without heat treating....and that cost too much
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days
