not much to report.
trying to decide, thoughts of the horde?
|I think something fell off.......|
I've decided to swap from the CB360 swingarm (+1.5" give or take a little over stock) to an XS650 swingarm for more like 3" of stretch. It's also a better piece over all having much beefier tubes, axle plates and eye-eye shock mounts. I'll be using some neat old adjustable units I pulled off one of my XS850s and rebuilt. Typical spring perch adjustment with a damping 'clicker' at the top that allows a really broad swing in damping. Since the 850 is about 250 pounds heavier than this will be when buttoned up I have little worry about the shocks being up to the more laid over position.
Truth be told I'm already sold on the skinny version but the pic does make an interesting point about relatively subtle changes having a big overall effect on the final product.
