It's 1/1/2" longer, thicker metal, more reinforced in key areas and needle bearings in the pivot plus it was $55 delivered. It wasn't a bolt on and go application. The pivot tube is larger so the stock end caps wouldn't work. I had to adapt washers to fit around the inside bosses to act as thrust washers to prevent side to side play. 1/4" I also had to shave the inner races to fit. I may have to add two thin washers in the future if side to side play develops. So far so good for now. If anything happens I'll post it here. B)

Of course. The comparison of the two is in one of my clips. I didn't think to take a snapshot of the two. As you can see the tire is further back closer to the fender.

My swing arm mod would be 3" longer and I would have to lose the fender.

A chain breaker would be better but this is one way to get it done.
