Bigger/wider/fatter reat tires = more rotational mass/weight = takes more HP to turn.   :id:

Extended swingarms take away power with the longer chain. 8)

Your gearing will more than offset those two.   :tu:

If I lose 20 lbs.(again :lol:)that should make up for the extra 12 links of chain and few ozs. of added tire weight,better looking and keeping the front tire on the ground were my goals(and the new arm is almost 3 lbs. lighter than the stocker...12.2 compared to 14.9 :lol:).

I cannot seem to shake 20 lbs. - 10-15 at most.

P.S. rotational mass is not the same ass the mass-in-yer-ass, asshole.   :lol: :wink:

Not concerned with rotational mass or with the .10 of a second it could cost me at a track since I don't race(other than an occasional roll on every couple of months). :lol:Just now lowered the rear another 3/4",will try it in the morning to make sure there's no rubbing before I throw the belly wing back on.As far as personal weight loss,I dropped 35 lbs. a year ago and so far have gained 28 of it back(was 248 this morning).Oh well,I love to eat. :lol:

 :lol:I seldom eat that high on the hog anymore but I do enjoy a good ribeye on the grill every week or two.My biggest downfall is sweets,have to have a dessert at least twice a day and an extra 300 calories a day adds up to about 2.5 lbs. a month(3500 calories per lb.).

BTW, we are staying with the 19/43 combo for gearing..................19/42 is a bit too tall.

Put an Evil on mine a few months ago and like it a lot(2"-6" and set it at 4" over).Was $660 shipped and that included powder coating,chain guard,bearings(installed),etc.Super nice people to work with and only took 6 or 7 days to get it upon ordering. :thumb:

My McIntosh 2-6 over arm was 1400...................prolly not much difference 'twixt your Evil arm and the Mac when it comes down to it.

You're probably right(if they're made of the same materials,etc.,I think Terry's 4130 chromoly arm is pretty much the same but about $200 higher with the same options).
