How about big "stickers" made of carbon fiber?
Another option instead of stickers is what I have on my bike:



I ride in the rocks a lot and I scratched/dented/beat the snot out of the swingarm on my bike previous to the 950.. so I put these on the 950 right when I bought it and they've worked well ever since (they are beat up... swingarm underneath looks virgin).

Hope this helps; food for thought

oh... Carbon Performance



sorry about that.. I've my head up m'arse this evening.

You can usually find them on eBay but they do have a website if you google it.
It took about 2 weeks for me to get mine in the US post shipped from over there; I bought mine through their ebay store.

Dont know about the carbon ones. They look good on Geeks though.

Now I also want some WP Suspension stickers for my forks.

Where will this end??

$190 for the carbon shields on my bike is a bit more than stickers cost... But on the upside they will protect your swingarm from further scratches ... And they are a heckuva lot cheaper than a new swingarm

You could whore it out with everything they sell Carbon performance also makes fork covers (btw on mine there are also a set of WP stickers underneath )

I used the best outdoor clear caulk I could find. About 5 years and counting with no issues so far.

You guys are worried about scratches on the swing arm? Really? Maybe you should ride a Harley instead?

I jest of course.......just too easy a target. Sorry guys.

Always glad to help amigo.

Always good to hear from West Oz. I would love to come down and ride with you crazy MF'ers. Maybe you blokes should stick to the bitumen more so you don't scratch up the swing arm?
