Have a look at page 13 of their pricelist. They list the various specs of their swingarm options and their own welded swingarm has the same travel as a 1100 swingarm. I think the greatest limiting factor is the angles that the driveshaft can take so the swingarm itself isn't the limiting factor for travel.

Just look at this monster:
