Your mind is in the right place going back to stock length.

You'll likely need a stock length rear brake line and a new master link for your chain. Patrick may have a stock length brake line laying around, or knows someone who does. He could get you a new master link as well.

Thanks..yeah I been readin a lot about it and its not good for what I wanna do with the bike..bad in corners and bigger turning radius. I just need to figure out how to bring it back to its reg. Handling. I knew I need to get a shorter brake line and shorten the chain but as far as parts to support putting it back I cant find anything

Is the stretch a removable extension? Do you still have the stock hardware?

Post a pic when you can...

I have a feeling all you need is a stock chain and you'd be good to go.

If you can't tell if its bolt extensions or not you may not want to do this job. Just saying. If its not bolt ons you can sell the arm after the swap. If its bolt one they can be sold also. This will help recover some of the money spent. You won't find a back to stock kit though. You need to figure out what you have now.

Should have said that from the get go. You'll need the stock swingarm plates and adjuster bolts with locking nut....Unless you can use the adjusters from the extensions.

Hard to tell 100%. Looks like a modded arm to me. Does not look like bolt ons.

I would almost be willing to bet you could find someone to trade you a stock arm. Then all you would need is chain & break line.

If not here than on Psychobike. That arm would easily trade out for a stock arm. If not a trade, find a stock arm. They seem to run about 75.00 last time I looked. Then you can just sell that arm. Its probably worth around 200-250
