I was just thinking about some changes to my V for this spring (the 38's and LTE's really woke the motor up ) Right now, I've got 4 1/2 inches of extension on the swingarm, but I am thinking of going a little longer. The problem is that I have a 1 inch spacer with the German gears so if I go with a welded 7", that would give me 8" extension. Is this too much for a trail bike? I could go with Ven's 6" spacer, but I'd have to get new mounting bolts made up (and the ones I have now were expensive). Any opinions? It actually may come down to how work goes this winter, so I might not be able to change anyway.
