Some make their own custom swingarm piece. It takes A LOT of machine work, as stated before. Plus, you must mount the rear brake on the same side as the sproket gear, or loose the rear brake altogether with is obviously dangerous. I was thinking of doing the same thing, but it's a lot of work and not really worth it. Maybe later when I have my own custom shop I'll do it, but for now, too much work and money that I don't have.

Talk to TWF about a braced swingarm. When I get the cashflow goin' again, I'm probably gonna have one done by him. Using your supplied swingarm, he'll brace it - over or under, your choice - and powdercoat (might've been paint it - don't recall) for something along the lines of $300.
