Okay, ....So Maybe I am Wrong About Stretched Bikes.......

Looks like I might be wrong about stretched bikes. Maybe its the normal riders of the stretched bikes?? Looks as though you can get insane drifts, wheelie, Endo, and knee drag with an extended bike. haha

Ummm! Ok Jeff. With that I believe I'm stretching the z.  If daddy can still put knee down and ride wheelies with more control to start drifting I'm down

I never liked them til I saw a rolling burnout backing it out.. 5mph clutched it, 10k and dumped it... It was sick.. I thought "ugh! I wanna do that!"

That's what I'm talking about Phil. Lol. Jeff I have a new did chain on it couldn't I just get another piece with the required # more of links and hook to this one. N would the brake line need to be 6" longer or what

i would think 6" longer on the brake line would be fine. im not 100% on just adding links to the chain. might wanna ask some of the others about that. maybe phil or curt. im just not sure on the safety aspect of it.

I hate to admit it but i kinda like the way it looks with a +6 i dont like the +12 and bigger. When the back tire is out past the tail it looks dumb unless its an all out drag bike

Yeah I'm with you. Just a slight stretch is all I want and like. Will see. I'm going to get it from Jeff and try it out. If all else fails I can always take it off and go back to standard.

Curt, stretched bikes can be ridden hard as well. My Busa rode awesome, and still cornered good. My '86 is stretched too don't forget guys ..... It has alot to do with the rider, and how severe the stretch is, along with other things, like excessive lowering, that really is worse than stretching imo .....

if you stretch your bike, call Hyper Pro and get a custom rear spring, otherwise it will really F up your handling ....they are cheap ....
