Centre of axel to centre of either of the pivot points should be enough.

Isn't there a risk of damaging the powder coat when removing the cups & bolts?

Yes but only if you are not careful.Slice orund them with a blade first.
Even if you get a ragged edge it will be hidden by the new bottom bracket and headset.

465mm from centre of axle to centre of top pivot point, in a straight line along the top of the swingarm. If that makes sense.

Shock running on this is 200x57mm.

I would take £16 inc postage for the two Enduro KP6A MAX bearings, if you wanted them.
