stretch

how hard is it to install one of those swingarm extenders? can it be done at home easily, or would it be better to have a professional install them?

The new chain is the hardest part and you should probably do both sprockets at the same time

If you can remove your own rear tire and replace your own chain you have all the tools you need, and like previously stated, just remember the longer brake line.

Just like the giant rear tires, if you like the look and don't mind the adverse effect on handling, go for it. Form follows function, so just realize that there was originally a purpose for this type of mod, and if you're not doing it for that reason you're likely to catch a lot of for it, but who cares?

Also keep in mind that it will change the way the bike can handle corners, significantly.

But above all else, just do you.

I just recently got this bike and decided id rather do the work then pay for someone else to do it, never changed the chain or removed the back tire before, but from what i can understand it isn't that hard to do either of those

Not difficult, but you will need to have certain tools that most people don't typically have on hand, like the large nut drivers for the rear axle and nut, and a chain breaker / riveting tool.
