Yes I've ridden it and every time I would shift to every gear at regular rpms the front end would come up off the ground, kinda so even though the guy had factory swing arm extended 2" I felt like it needed to be extended a little longer so I ordered a 8+ over extended swing arm from Tyson racing in hopes that will help, soon when I get use to it I'm thinking about dirt drag racing with it. So now I'm thinking about painting my plastics and maybe shaving my rear fenders, my front fenders have already been shave a little. Just trying to figure out what color to add since bike is black and hood is red and should or shouldn't I shave rear fenders

Plus 8 is alot. I'm only plus 4 and I'm a hill climber running 14:1 compression at 60hp. Those Tyson swinger need more gussets then they come with.

2005 KFX700 good bit of mods
2001 Raptor 660R too many mods

Oh ok well if it breaks I can have it fixed and add more. Not gonna do any jumping so I hope nothing happens. Need some ideas or input should I shave rear fenders and everything as in my plastics is painted black and the hood on front is red and kinda plain I would like to add some color to break it up so it's not so plain looking. Also the motor is polished.
