Hello everyone. I am thinking of getting swingarm extensions and was wondering how many people have experience with them. I would also like any feedback or advice you can give me about them, i.e. reliability, performance, etc. I have a 03 636 lowered. Thanks in advance.

they are fine, i haven't used them myself, but i know a lot of guy's that do. if you know someone at a bike shop (not a dealer) you could pick up a swingarm for bout $30-$40 bucks, cut and weld the pieces you need. guy''s i know, put inserts into the hollow of the swingarm for strength, then weld it up.

otherwise, extentions run kinda high. if ur into stretched & lowered, do it, u'll be fine

If your not planning on dragging it at the track then i would leave it stock length. To have an extra 6 or so inches on the bike makes the cornering even worse then after lowering it. I just recently took my extensions off after having them for about 2 years and raised my bike back up to stock height, for 1 I quit going to the strip and 2 was sick of not being able to hug corners like a street bike should be able to. So if you enjoy the street riding and flying into and out of corners i would suggest not stretching it. Its your bike tho i'm just trying to give you a heads up of what i experienced with mine. But anyways when i bought my extensions i paid about $250 for them and don't forget a longer brake line which will run about $60 or so for a SS line. I believe i ordered my extensions off of kneedraggers.com. PS. If you ever plan on selling the bike i would go with extensions over cutting up your swing arm!
