SP1 and SP2 Swingarm Differences

I'm a newbie to the RC51. Besides color (or lack thereof), what is the difference between the SP1 and SP2 swingarms? TIA

The bracing is different and the SP2 arm is approximately 1'' longer. The SP2 arm is modeled after the HRC arm for the SP1.

Thanks guys! I was looking to buy an SP2 with a damaged swingarm. I decided to move on and find a nicer (and near stock) example.

Keep in mind too that a 2001 (SP1) swingarm is the only model that does not have attachments for spools to raise the rear of the bike if you run across a nice SP1.

The SP2 swingarm is definitely sexy.

My SP1 has spools.....bought it with them, and used of course. What is any easy way to visually ID an SP1 vs SP2 swingarm?

My bike has lots of small mods. Perhaps an upgraded swing arm?

If yours is a 2000 then it would have spools. They were only neglected on the 01.
