Here's how I did my stock extension, +2 was the perfect trail length.
I filled in all the oem mounts, so I couldn't. If I remember correctly it might be possible to leave the oem rear mounts intact and simply re-tap the fronts using the now shifted rear mounts as a guide.pewterpecker said:Can you still use regular skid plates when you cut and paste the swinger maddog?
Where did you get it done that cheap? I want to do the same myself. I nearly flipped mine backwords on a steep trail 2 weeks ago.pewterpecker said:I finally got my swingarm back. +2, $80 total. :thumbsup:

I agree, the JTM is the best bang for the buck. I have a +6 full swinger that I use during drag season but I use the JTM extension for trail riding when drag season ends.RAPTORAZ said:Maddog56 said:I think if the swingarm had been a +4 I wouldn't have gotten away with it and needed a revalve or respring.
I'm using a +4.5" JTM extension on mine with the stock rear shock. Works fine, even with my 250 lbs of fat arse on it.
