Magnesium swingarm!!!!

Bought My self a pretty clean magnesium swingarm from Ferracci's race bikes for X-Mas/B-day this year for my 312R and wighted it vs. stock just to let all you guys know the weight difference.

stock: 14.5 lbs
magnesium : 9.8 lbs

if you clean them very well, the difference is 4.4 lbs or 2 kgr



bow, When the mug-arm is fitted, how about the suspension settings? Has rebound to be re-adjusted?

What thermal spray coating did you use ?..

Most ceramic thermal barrier coatings I've seen only come in black.
