You really don't want to know what most people here think of swing arm extensions. Especially for a 250.

True. But to each his own. I streched and lowered a gsxr when i drag raced. But i hated the way ot handled(or didn't handle) on the street. Took it back stock and never.looked back.

250s have the power to need an extended swingarm for drag racing?

Extended swingarms on a Ninja 250 is a useless and not particularly appealing mod . Not to mention the waste of about $400 bucks (cost of extenders and new chain). Just my 2 cent.

I've had extended arms and swingarm extensions on various bikes, including wide tire kits. The extra length makes them turn like a truck. I don't really see any benefit of extending a 250 unless your just going for looks.

Not to mention that handling is one of the 250's biggest strengths; why pay money to degrade it?

Probably the dumbest mod you could do to a 250. Your idea is bad and you should feel bad.

Why stretch a motorcycle? possible exclusion for draggin but still you buy a high performance machine that can out accelerate, and out handle anything on the road.... then you go stretch take out the handling.. why not save your money buy a cage and save us all the frustration of having another bike that merely has a super sport to make up for his cock size.
