After success execution of several CRF's swing arms shortenings one of our team body asked to do the same on his FS450. And we decided why not.
Happy owner and bike on the picture.

Since everything is checked and fitted on the Jig, cutting work can start on........ and first in the row are all brackets

Awesome job. I wanted to do something similar to my 500EXC swingarm. I envisioned mounting one end of the jig on a linear rail so I could adjust the length and keep the movement perpendicular to the swingarm bolt and axle. I'll stay tuned to see how this works out.

Cutting, damn cumbersome, is at least twice as difficult as cutting with a Japanese swing arm. Walls are really thick and that was surprised, but this is understandable because it is casted.

Joints surfaces are matched. Now is clear visible for how much swing will become shortened, and how idea of the Jig works.
