    Hi All,



    I was wondering if anyone out there has extended their swing arm? I am thinking of ordering one of those kits from Japan which increase length by 200mm or 8 inches.



    I am not sure if it would affect the handling or not? or if they are quality.



    Any thoughts or experiences?



    Cheers,

    Adam

    i cant speak of there quality but the longer swingarm you install the less corning ability you will have. long swing arms do look cool though.

    It will turn in a smaller radius with a longer swingarm. I have a 3" exstention.

    After looking at the bikes on this forum I do appreciate the stock look but I am 6'3" so i hope the longer swing arm will be a bit more aesthetically pleasing when i am on the machine.

    I was originally going to stretch my existing arm (pay a fabricator)but was not sure if it would work out more expensive or if it would comply with road standards???



    Where are you based? I am in Australia.

    I have a longer swingarm, +6cm.

    I can feel, that the handling is nealy the same, compared with the original one.



    But I can not recomment a much longer one, if you still want a very handy bike.

    Bad for offroad rides.



    If you only want to ride on road, than you should use the shortest avaiable "extended swingarm" (150mm).

    200mm and 300mm are much tooo long, only for show bikes.

    my statement about loss of cornering may not have been correct concerning the tw. my info was based on my friends gsxr he installed a stretched swingarm for drag racing and it wouldnt take corners like it did before. i dont know how much longer it was but different style of bike so probably different rsults. sorry if my info wasnt correct.
