I think I mentioned it to you before Bill that K3 arm is lighter than K5 (which surprized me to) but certainly not as strong or as stiff . K5 needed to gain a few extra lbs in critical places to achieve this as the K3 arm is just basic in comparison.

But sorry to SSGSXR...took two Jabs at the mighty K5 which might have been a little harsh lol.

Don't remember the exact weights and don't have the K5 arm anymore but here is a pic of the K3 swinger on the scale. Also a busa swingarm which i was going to use but didn't. they are so cheap to buy used at one point i had 5 different model swingarms.

Meh... it's the most excitement we've seen out here this week so it's all good. And it's not often @Gixan chimes-in!

FWIW (very little) I also believe that @SSGSXR 's comment was a little much for the discussion at hand... but hardly merited moderator intervention.
