I had a Yamaha Fazer 1000 with a hugger fitted (to protect the shock etc) and when I took it off found a 'groove' ate into the top of the swing arm with no way of disguising it unless you refitted the hugger or aggressively buffed it out and had the swing arm re-anodised.
Never had or will have one on any of my bikes ever since.

I saw a BMW S1000RR the other day with just about everything covered in carbon. It looked like crap.

Get someone to make you a full carbon swingarm. Should not be too expensive
