I changed my Gen1 swing arm to a Gen2 besides the swing arm itself used the stock Gen 1 parts. then i changed the Gen 2 for a Gen 3 and same thing everything match.. i do have the 3 hole bones from the Gen 1 install... dont think that makes to much of a difference tho..

How was the right height and the suspension set up ...did it improve? Did you look into using 636 linkage ?

I used a low mileage gen3 shock, gen2 rocker, and soupy's adjustable links, but the stock gen2 links will work fine. It is truly a by up deal, but you will need the gen3 brake caliper and bracket and a gen3 brake line. Other than that, I can't remember anything else. Oh, you won't be able to run the under tail exhaust after, so a side mount or custom turn down is a must.

Aesthetics and appearance mainly. Little or no handling advantage. Once you pull the under tail it leaves a very open tail. Now that, in my opinion, looks pretty bitchin, but I wanted a more updated look. It's for personal preference.
