Has anyone got a clean, unmarked silver swingarm for a 2001 rsv mille. Looking to change mine due the the usual dropped bike grazes.

Why not tidy it up and get it re anodised?

I’d second what Steve says there 

Finding a clean one will be lucky. Can always get it powder coated black if you don’t fancy anodising it

I'll look into it, but I'm not sure whether the marks are too deep. And would you get a match on the finish?

Re Anodising isn’t easy, it is absorbed by the first layer so you would have to physically strip the first layer off to re do it correctly otherwise you would get a patchy finish.

There are companies that carry out anodising; I mentioned it because I saw a Gen 1 swing arm on fb, AP's I'm sure, just a few days ago. It looked like new and the colour match was spot on too.
