So I did the swap a little bit ago and just noticed the offset within the swingarm favors the drive side. I mean there is more space between wheel and suspension on the drive side than on the other side. I don't know if that was the case with the stock 450 swingarm, but can anyone confirm this is ok?

The 450 arm is offset also.....The question is, Is the mounted wheel/tire centered in/with the frame?....I have run several 360 arms on 450's with no problems, but you could have a "tweeked' arm....Check alignment of the centerlines of the wheels with the "backbone" and each other.....

Ronny.... It bolts right in, will take a lighter stock wheel/brakes (if desired) and is slightly longer so it lowers the back end about 2".....

yeah Znabb, it's for looks and lightness. I have the cb360 rear wheel on there also...smaller diameter axle than the 450 so you either have to run the 360 wheel or grind out the drops to fit the 450 axle.

The centerline of the tire lines up with the backbone so I guess all is good.
