    BLAH dreaded crack found on swingarm Blur LTC

    I crossed my fingers and prayed it was a scratch but after opening my eyes again, it's most def. a crack. Damnit! Left a message with Willie. I hope its warrantied as I don't currently have the funds to replace it. This has been by far the most enjoyable bike I have ever owned.

    Could it be a matter of not using the grease gun often enough ie. pivot bearings getting stuck and causing the crack?

    As requested.




    The bike has been flawless up until this point. Can't wait to get back out there. Willie has been very helpful cross shipping me a new one.

    Willie took care of me and I had a new swingarm within a week. Great service from the folks at santa cruz. Regarding the replaced swing arm; has anyone gotten one that was not clear coated? It's kind of strange my original one and mainframe were both clear coated but this new one doesn't appear to be. Thanks.
