Swingarms. What's the difference?

So I am in need of a new swingarm. What's the difference between the adventure and superduke swingarms? I know the part numbers are slightly different. Is one shorter than the other?

Also if you know of someone who's either parting out an adventure or just had a swingarm laying around please let me know. Thanks.

Note the ADV swingarms before about 06 can crack near the shock mount if the bike is used heavily offroad and/or jumped. My 03 had a 8-10" long crack in it bought an 08 which is stronger - has the section near the shock filled in.

I compared my 08 superduke to my 12 adv 990r, the superduke is approx. 2 " shorter
