i dont think we can allow talk of extended swing arms on a 919 here it goes against the rules of the forum but also the rules of bikes.... extended swingarms are for the busa crowd only... the guys that think they are fast.
Hey...I resent that "busa crowd only" comment But I totally agree with everyone's comments on stretched being on the street. I first tried to have a strip/street bike. It just doesn't work. You end up with a slow bike at the track and a slow bike on the street. Stretched bikes try to stay straight up with you when you try to lean into the curves (as mentioned). On the other hand, I would LOVE to see a 919 stretched 12". I'd scrap my RR for a 919 for track only. If you're dead set on stretching it and want to do it right, contact Coby Adams or Myrtle West. Both do outstanding work.
as is...yeah, I agree (puke). Lose the undertail/install a sidewinder. Lower rear, install good shock, Shinko Usoft, airshifter, 130-140hp under the tank, 60 shot of spray....Oh yeah, LOTS of potential.

It's not that I am punishing YOU, I am just taking YOUR money and giving it to LAZY Asses who refuse to get off the TIT of the Government...Obama to Joe the Plumber
On a side note . . . I have done some real research on this, and without going with a custom swing arm the only real way to do it and not spend a bunch of money is by cutting and welding the stock one. If you go mild, like 4 inches, handling is decreased, but not destroyed. Nobody makes blocks for these bikes, and that is for a reason. . . any lengthening to the swing arm requires extra braces for support. Bucky has a combination of two cut and welded swing arms on his bike, and as you can see from all of his pictures it is heavily supported by braces below the swing arm.
