Where to get tabs on swingarm welded?

The tabs on my swingarm, where the spools go, bent a little bit the other day. Anyone know where I could get it fixed, and what it usually costs?

a while ago patrick recommended a welder to me but I can't remember the name. And yes Kawasaki's do break off very very easy. The swingarm is very thin and not crash worthy.

Neither of ours are snapped off, just bent. The weld is starting to crack. It'll need to be bent back to the original position before it gets welded. I'd also like to get the left side welded as well, so it'll be a bit stronger.

That is an aluminum swingarm, right? You'll need someone with a TIG



One of these days I really need to get my TIG working...

they broke off on my 04 and my friends 05. i think the spool itself causes it to break since they stick out just enough and the bolt is strong that holds the spool.

Haha a hammer? I'm guessing that was a joke

Here's the replacement tabs he was talking about.

A new swingarm is a bigger PITA than welding the tabs back on
