    Ok, no seat time but bike is back together. Thanks to Colby (villageidiot) for coming to rescue after my friend proved extremely unreliable. My trip to DV had to be delayed until next wednesday.

    Colby welded up a 3" stretch, and now the bighorn is very happy and not rubbing. I utilized the stock brake rod, and added drum brake arm from a ttr225. I had purchased a Yamaha Virago XV750 brake rod, but it was too long. So I made the other one work. Figured I'd run the swingarm for my next trip then pull it apart and get it powder coated.

    BTW- I need to run a 136 link chain with the 3" stretch and a jump to a 55tooth rear sprocket.

    Thanks Colby. Went together smooth. No issues. Took it out tonight for a run around the neighbor hood. Adjusted the the brake arm, cause my rear stopping was somewhat non-existant. Now locking up the bighorn on pavement with ease.

    Looking forward to DV next week.

    Not sure? I don't ride on the road too much, with the exception of tuning and adjusting. The TW is mainly for offroad.

    FWIW, I "chunked" mine pretty good within the first 20 miles when a rock lodged itself between the stock-length swingarm and the tire. Rather than scrap it I decided to leave it on and wear it out. I've got a bit over a thousand road miles on it including one 500 mile day and it looks as if it will go at least a thousand more.



    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.
