Swingarm extensions and handling characteristics


#1
I don't have a busa... YET... But, I really like the looks of a stretched out swingarm. For you guys with em, how does it affect the handling of your rides? Not many twisties out here in west Texas, but, I'm still interested in keeping it's abilities. I like the fact that the stretched length will keep the front tire on the ground a little better, so as to avoid accidental wheelies.

FRONT LOWERED 1.5" REAR ADJUSTABLE LINKAGE STRETCHED 9" OVER AND SHE SQUATS LAUNCHES AND DISAPPEARS. CORNERING NEEDS A LITTLE MORE PUSH BUT DOES FINE ... GO FOR IT

Cruz, funny thing you replied. I was browsing through some other posts, and damn if I didn't comment to a friend of mine on how frickin beautiful that thing was. It was the bike that made me start thinkin "well, maybe a stretch wouldn't be a bad thing".

Sweet ass bike!

I can tell you right now,that if you lean too much,the front wheel will wash out,it dont handle very good stretched. Trust me,I know.I got lucky but I DO KNOW what can happen.
