They are one of the few companies that make swing arms for BMWs.. Definitely the best looking/quality. Ain't cheap tho. Mine is a custom job because I wanted it short. Normally they are 5-9", mine is only 3-7". I think I'm gonna have to run it about 4.5-5" back tho for tire clearance around the bottle basket.

I want to keep the bike short as possible yet still knock the wheelies out of it. Gonna run it at stock height too.. I don't want to hurt the handling... Especially with all the twisties we have down here.

Excuse mi ignorance but wouldn't it be more practicle to add the extension to the stock swing arm?

Yes it would, and I tried a set of bolt on extensions but I did not like how they fit the swingarm pockets.. I also didn't trust the 1/4" screws they used to hold them on.. After messing with them for an entire day trying to get a good fit, I just didn't like em and sent them back.. They did look good though and at stock height, the bike was not even noticeably extended..

So for the order of safety, I pennied up for a real arm. Also I wanted a bottle mount for an air shifter and there is no where to mount a bottle on an S1000rr so the mcintosh arm offers both a built in air tank and a bottle basket.

If I ever decide to spray it, I now have an option to mount a nitrous bottle.

Not sure why anyone would run a 105 octane map without the proper fuel.

I'm not going to lose horsepower by using a tune designed for higher octane that advances timing appropriately...

So you're saying you've done extensive testing with fuel on the s1k engine? Or another bike?

Not all engines will respond the same way, and the timing map must be modified appropriately to take advantage of the higher octane. Just sticking more octane into the tank without map changes will cause you to lose power and possibly cause pre-detonation.

I can't edit my post but I didn't mean detonation can occur from higher octane.
You can lose power from the higher octane as it basically combusts slower if you run stock timing.

But predetonation can occur from more timing without the octane is what I meant.
Like running a 105 octane map with 93 octane fuel.
