I am looking to lower my bike and add an extended swingarm as the next two mods. I saw the 1000rr ext. swingarm this week and noticed it was adjustable 2" to 6". I also noticed that it was just an extension and could easily ( or so i hear ) put back to stock. If anyone knows where to get these for a 600rr besides the dealership, like a website, it would be greatly appreciated.

For those of you who would like to give me **** about extending it, save it, i don't question anyone else's motives, please don't rag on mine.
For those who answer, like i said it's greatly appreciated

i like the look of a lowered bike with a swingarm, to me it looks aggrasive as ****. But theres also a 1/8 mi. drag strip (Ohio Valley Dragway) about 20 miles away and theres alot of riding groups around here that go down there. I went this week and everyone with suzuki's and kaw's has swingarms and **** and it looks nice. Within a couple months i will get a power commander, full exhaust system, and come more performance upgrades so thats why i am looking for the swingarm extension. I know people say t he extension will take away the handling of a 600 a bit but 4 inches is all i want and i can't imagine a huge decrease in handling. It's not like i do twisties at AMA speed. SO to answer your question, it's a little bit of both. Another thing is i am trying to get people to look at hondas the way they do gsxr's and ****. Everyone around here drives a ******* suzuki, and i love the bike, but it's so unoriginal now.

Another thing is i am not a huge fan of extreme twisties anymore after i totalled my red and black 600, so the straight line speed has more appeal everyday

i wasn't referring to the riders, around here, everyone thinks the suzuki's are "gold," and it bothers me, so i was saying i am hoping that will change. I hear about how fast they are, and that may be true, but somehow honda's win more more races than all the others combined, and true, there are a lot more hondas on the circuit, but if the others are better they would win.

Quick question, If staright line speed has more appeal then why not get a lager displacement machine?

also you're gonna have to buy new chain to fit the extended swingarm plus those extentions that could be quite costly for what purposes? maybe a lil more traction to the rear, you'll some turning ability and some more... but do as you like expect to pay no less than 350-500 bucks when finish for everything...

that would be great, i'd get a 1000, but then i would do the same thing, and spend the same amount of money on a bike that cost money that i don't have, i have the 600, so i am going to do with it what i can. Mainly its for looks, with an occasional track day.

i was thinking about 200 for the the swingarm, and another 100-150 for the chain

thanks for the feedback guys

Sounds like you care too much about what other people think. Ride whatcha like dude.

Good luck with the swingarm
