You will love it. Apparently you are never going to run any kind of shock on it?

With a +6" the stock shock mounting location come out were the brake lever's are. I will probably make a aluminum bracket that will come off the stock mount.

They will make any length you want.

This is a pic of the 6" extended swingarm that was on Camo's V and is now on Kawgirl's V. It uses a standard length shock in the last hole. If you weld on mounting tabs, you can run with the shock mounted in front of the brake lever. 6" is a short as you can go and still use the stock length shock. Don't ask me how I know. :cool:

I was looking at Kawiegirls bike earlier, I noticed that it had a +6" swinger and the shock mount was welded on the swing arm. Looks like the swing arm is angled down more than the stock one is. When you measure 6" back for the shock mount it is exactly were the brake leaver is on mine.

Morehorsepower is the one that had that swingarm built. To my knowledge his was the first extended swingarm built.

So that 6" was run for many years, by MHP, then by Camo and now on Kawgirl's. I have ridden it with both the stock shock and now the aftermarket shocks. Other than the whoops, it work just fine with the stock shock. Now with the aftermarket shocks it rides Great.

Here's the brake cable bracket and lever I modified for the +6.



Here it is mounted but without the front lever cable hooked up yet.
