Question Changing a Swing Arm

Could a person replace a early Yamaha FZR or Honda CBR F2 model bikes' swing arms with swing arms from newer models YZF
or F3s? The wider swing arm would allow a wider rim/tire to be mounted.
The desire is to have a slightly wider contact patch and increased grip.
without the expense of buying the newer bike.
Would this cause any kind of drastic handling problems?
