A New Swingarm for the Ducati Supersport 900

I've always loved the swingarm on the Ducati Supersport 1000DS. It's beefier and way better looking. It flows much better with the newer Supersport than the older squared-off swingarm that was carried over from the older Supersport.  These nicer swingarms are very expensive new, and they don't come up for sale used very often, but I was lucky enough to pick up a used one about a year ago and I just got around to installing it today.  I also installed a new 41-tooth rear sprocket to replace the 43-tooth that I've had on the bike for a while.  The bike lost a little bit of "umph" on acceleration, but I'm hoping the new gearing will be better for my track days and give me a little more speed on the straights.
