    I am going to splice two swingarms together to make one and I had a couple questions, it looks like I will get about 3 inches cutting and welding the 2 together and I want to mount an ATV tire, has anyone done this and kept a stock chain guard on the arm? or would the ATV tire rub on the inner guard mount? also what size rear sprocket would you say goes good with which ATV tire?

    Depends on the tire. Some rub, some don't. Ideally you would keep the chain guard and reposition the tabs.



    I run a 14/55 with my Bighorn2, but the various brands and sizes are of different diameters. You really need to get an actual mounted diameter before committing to a gear ratio.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Hi

    my advice would be: buy a brand new extended swing arm, way safer than the one you will make (someone already tried and gave up on the forum)

    cheers
    Please contact member MichaelC from San Diego Cal. before asking info or putting comments about tuning parts, motorcycle customization and everything linked to TW in Japan. Thank you very much.

    Hi

    well, I'm still not convinced Japanese owners buy Kijima, Kitaco or other brands because they're unable to modify genuine Yamaha swingarms, I mean I visited many workshops there and it's obvious that they're skilled enough to modify everything on the bike.

    basically it's also possible to make your own soda in the states, just need to mix water, carbon gas, sugar, and some plants juices however most of the American ppl I know just go buy Coke or Pepsi at Walmart's

    cheers
