Just a couple of notes on this process.
It's a magnesium swing arm so apply grease to the area I have circled and also to any metal threads being screwed into this little beauty.
Also, you'll maybe be aware that the OEM chain guide is a little too large to slide into the place shown by the arrow. You can remove a small section from the OEM chain guide to allow it to fit. From memory I removed about 7 mm along the back of the OEM chain guide. Just do it a bit at a time.
MV did make one for the magnesium swing arm but they are very rare. Pretty sure that the part number for that would be 800092652.

Cheers castle but I'll be asking a mechanicy type person to fit it as that's a step too far for me and I don't have the roof to support it the only question I have is do I paint it so as to continue with my veltro rep or do I go in a different direction so all can see the goodies

That would be your call, Sir.
I think the only advice I would have is try and visualise the bike as completed and make your decision for colour based on that vision.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

as far as color for swingarm if you're lucky and have a friend that is decent with photoshop software he/she may be able to change color with a picture to help you visualize. On another note when Chuck & i replace my swingarm we didnt have to remove the side plates just loosen them up quite a bit and squeezed the bugger in there. If i remember correctly Joe, Alex(Russia), & Castle(through skype) helped with my process. thanks guys.
