Swingarm extension removal gsxr k4

I recently bought a gsxr with a 6 inch swingarm extension.. and I don't like how it feels, I was just wondering how much would it run me or how much would it take to put it back to stock?

Labor in itself is probably 65-100 dollars I would imagine. I would do it yourself if you have the time and tools. You'll need a stock length chain and brake line but you could roll up the current line. Might have to readjust the suspension as well.

Maybe you could find a member on here that would trade you for their stock one? IDK its one of an idea...

Remember you might need a smaller chain and stuff.

Might you also be able to cut the current chain to length?

Yeah he could do that too and get a rivet kit. Just depends on wear and tear of chain and sprockets too.

sounds like a lot. I thought the extension would grow on me but i started to hate how it looks. Any shop recommendations? I don't think I trust myself cutting the chains lol.

I'll do the labor if I can keep the extensions. I also have the stock adjuster blocks that you are going to need. Just need a new master link ($6) if your chain is still good.

That should do it unless that brake caliper has a bar that mounts to the swing arm. It looks like it does

Hey about the above post on the 3/16" diameter vinyl tubing to bleed the brakes, i have some and every time i use it, i have to jam a screw driver in it to get the hole big enough to sit flush on the caliper nipple, but when im pumping theres no "seal" around the nipple and all the fluid ALWAYS drains out all over the caliper so i've had to wrap a rag around it, cant ever save fluid this way.

anyone got any tips to help keep it sealed? (i only have two hands an extra helper JUST to hold the tube tight would be perfect but im talking the solo options) tape? anything?

Get it hot with a lighter before you put it on. It will take the shape of the bleeder and fit snug
