Pissed Swing arm

Well my kids ride is down again. Cheap weld broke on the swing arm causing the guard to pinch the chain. Chain come off, and could not get it back on. Had to pull it back.

Re: Swing arm

I know the feeling. My boys' ride is down too. They bent the cage and the swing arm. I just ordered the UTV INC. one from TeamFASMotorsports, and have tubing on the way for a new cage. Upgrade through repair is the way it works.

Good luck!

Dave

Re: Swing arm

Yup. The top of the cage was 3-4 feet in the air. The rest of it was higher. Chromoly replacement bars on the way and I'll build it good. The swing arm will be cake to replace.

Good luck with yours

Re: Swing arm

Um, I meant Factory UTV. Not UTV inc. Sorry. Not sure what I was thinking.

Re: Swing arm

If your up grade your shocks (LT 450) make sure you don't put to much preload on them to increase your ride height. My little guy just snapped the "Factory Utv" swing arm after hitting a small mound of dirt . I will post some pics tomorrow.

We've sold a bunch of these swingarms with few complaints. We stand behind our parts, give the shop a call 916-383-2730

Re: Swing arm

That's good to know. I'm hoping it's much better than the factory. Good on you for the quick response here.

Re: Swing arm

The good news is Factory UTV does stand behind their product! I called today and spoke with them and even though I did not purchase the swing arm and it was over 1 yr old they offered to replace it at 50% off!! Needless to say I ordered it !!

Re: Swing arm

I will be buying the Factory UTV Swing Arm when we break ours.

We have the Factory UTV Doors and Restraint System. Customer service is first rate, shipping was very fast and both kits were very well constructed and bolted right up. I will definitely purchase from them again when the time comes.
