Default CRF or CR125 swingarms' possibly replace my 03 cr250 swingarm?

So I'm in the middle of building my 03 cr250r. Got to putting new bearings in my 03 swingarm that came with the chassis last night. Don't know if my friend did this or it was already, but the edge of the bearing housing is cracked.

So this 03 cr250 swingarm is no good. Period. Plus some of the chain adjuster bolts were broken off flush, so that would have been a real nightmare.

I'm trying to buy another swing arm, but there aren't many options on eBay. Where as there are tons and tons of CRF250/450 swingarms...I also have access to a 2004 CRF250r swing arm locally. I've been told that this is the exact same as my 2003 CR250 swing arm, and apparently a CR125 swingarm is no different either?!? But there is barely any consistent information out there.

Definitely can't afford to have another junk swinger sitting in the garage Any help is greatly appreciated as always fellas.

Thanks to dogger I've ordered a 03' CRF450R swingarm as a direct replacement. The 03 and 04' CRF450 swing arm is the only option as a direct replacement, since 03 and 04 still used the same GEN3 frame I am using, as well as the same linkage, shock length, etc. etc. I made sure there was 100% return policy with the ebay store I ordered from if there is any catches, although I see no differences other than different style brake/hose clamps on the CRF450 swinger.

Just posting this up for future guys like me who haven't a clue. Before dogger enlightened me people had said the 04 CRF250 swinger would work, but it won't. It uses the newer GEN4 frame. CR and CRF swingers all use the same bearings for the most part but I believe the spacers and mainly the pivot bolt is different, as well as the linkage point. I'll be sure to update in about exactly a week.
