New Swingarm,Chain,& Sprocket
« on: February 20, 2016, 02:22:25 PM »
Threw on a new Evil arm(2"-6" over,set at 4"/62"),EK 3D chain,and a Vortex CAT5 47T rear sprocket Thurs.May still be able to lower the rear another 1" or so,right now it drops another good 1" when my fat 245 lb. ass plops on it and just don't want to rub a tire if I hit a bump or pothole.

You can tighten up the spring some if it does.

Let's see - you with a 18/47-45 and me with a 19/42.   I am taller than you.

Might go with a 19/43 - then we would be closer.  18/45 to a 19/43 ain't much difference. 5 little teeth.  1=3 up front and two inna back.  Hope that MTC multi stage clutch goes well. And the air-shifter.

Had to tighten down a little on the shock spring when I got home,was just barely rubbing the bottom right next to the taillight(and loosened up the chain adjusters about a 1/4 turn,seemed a little too snug).

I had to tighten my spring down as well...............and cut off the rear fender when the wheel went back 3".  Mounted the tag just under the taillight.  Will be different with a undertail kit on it.  Will run 4-1/2 " back.

Hoping to make the ride down south again this year Jeff but unsure at this point.  Just finished my job yesterday and start new one on Monday.  So will have to wait and see what new schedule and vacation looks like once I know more.

Good to know bently. :thumb:Mine came with a Delrin chain slider and all new bearings pressed in and was a snap to install.A friend has over 250 passes(1507 at 18" over with a flat slick)and only issue was a crack in the chain guard(which they replaced at no charge).Super nice people to deal with and had the arm within 8 days after placing my order. :thumb:
