lowered or extended makes it handle like poo. Unless you are just going straight 1/8 or 1/4 mile at a time.

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.

I feel like I have seen an adjustable swingarm... Slides in and out of itself. Of course the chain would have to be switched but still its a cool idea.

Heres one from my collection of 919 Hornet images, it's a clean extension. No idea who owns it but I bet he's American!

Excuse me while I run to the restroom to vomit... seriously that makes me sick, even the 9'r in the back ground has atrocious red passenger peg brackets, the one saving grace is f'd!

I bet he isn't because our rear cowls do not have the Hornet logo on them. Just 919. If he IS America, he doesn't live here.

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.

Well spotted - that is a very valid point!!!

The Hornets we got in NZ also had grey side covers regardless of the tank/tail/front fender colour. I notice all the US ones I have seen have the satin black side covers.

It would be interesting to try to pin point it down based on what we can see.

I still can not see why you would do that to the 919 though

you need to sell your bike for a busa and turbo it and then extend the swing arm.

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.

only real reason would be so you can fit in with your busa buddies, or the original reason is for drag racing.
