Default CB750 swing arm swap

OK, I've looked on the forum but really can't find an answer to my question. I have a 1975 CB750 that I'm working on. I'm putting a 2006 Yamaha R6 frontend on it and I've got most of that worked out (more to come on that, will post). I'd also like to use the R6 rear wheel (5.5 in) but I think I need a little more length in the swing arm to make it work. The width seems to be ok with the stock CB swingarm, it's tight But I may be able to make it work. But a little more width would be nice to. Because of the overall diameter of the R6 wheel 180/55/17 the tire/wheel is hitting the front of the swingarm. Does anyone have some suggestions on other Swing Arms that would fit the Frame but give me the length and a little more width I'd need? I really don't want to do a lot of Fab work. I would like to find something that bolts right up. Will any of the later CB750's work? Any info would be great.

Thanks

Randy, is your CB an F model? I believe the F model swingarms are two inches longer than the other models. You can probably pick up an F swingarm on ebay pretty cheap. I am in the process of buying parts to put a CBR F2 rear wheel set up on my 750F. I am ordering parts off ebay this week and there are several instructional threads on the CB1100 super sport forum to help you out, Use the search function over there and you will get tons of info.
