stretching a 04 ZX10r

I know this isn't considered suspension and tires, but I know I would get better feed back probably in here. I am considering stretching my bike, BUT I only want to stretch about 4in and look stock, I seen a place awhile back that took your stock swingarm and added to it. I cant remember the name of the company, but is there any companies that already have a stock swingarm/ and or look alike? I would like to keep mine, just incase I ever wanted to go back. I am cutting 1.51-1.65 60fts with a lowered bike, otherwise stock. Looking to make that better :)

You can just add extensions to it. They usually go up to around six inches. You can get them cheap and pull them off if you want to go back to stock length. I notice your talking about your 60' times so your actually stretching it for a good reason and not just to look cool which is good. But extensions as lon as you don't get a cheap set will hold up just fine!

Thanks ninja boy

And C5 I had yana shiki extensions on my old gixxer and never had a problem. For a 4" stretch you should be good to use your stock brake line
