Stretch it. Leaving any sportbike stock looks ghey. Get a really loud aftermarket slip-on that makes your bike sound fast too. Even though it isn't. But at least people will think it's fast and it'll sound really cool. Plus it'll be stretched.



Oh wait...

There are people on here with stock length busas cutting 1.6 60' times.


Conclusion: even on a drag busa, stretches are totally worthless. Also, the swingarm extensions are patently unsafe. They put large torques on parts of the bike that weren't designed to see any.

I,ll bet there are only a couple that can cut 1.6 60ft stock lengths, I can prolly barely do that and I have been drag racing off and on for a few years, U will likely go thru several clutches trying too

do what you like since no matter what some will hate and others will appreciate.

agreed man......... to me a huge part of motorcycles is self expression. Do it for you not because someone else is telling you what THEY like. Theres not a thing on my bike that I did because someone else told me they liked it. Thus I can truly say its MY bike

Well, true. I'm jsut saying there's proof, on this forum, that it can be done. So basically, no one needs an extended swingarm, they just need more practice.

Sorry, but I have to call BS. The best I did was a 1.70 before the stretch. Im sure more practice would have yielded better. I will give you that plenty can cut a 1.60. You need gear to get low 60's and 330's. You cant run a bunch of gear at stock length. Your waisting your time with out the gear and arm.

its all about what you want, you will never know until you try it, but if you do start with the extentions and see how you like it before you undergo any serious

if you stretch it out and you aren't a drag racer at the races, be prepared to be called a .

cuz that looks really kweer. invest that money in something that makes you look rich, like a yacht.

keep your stock swingarm length and dont suck by giving a great big 'fvck all yall' to the engineers. the gsxr is the only 750 supersport left out there. it's got a heritage to uphold, and really you would be defacing the bike by putting the extended trash on there.
not tryna be racist or anything but every time i see a stretched bike i assume its a african-american.

sorry i said it, am not racist...
