Swingarm extensions?

Anyone considering getting bolt-on swingarm extensions? Are they reliable? If anyone does make a decent set, where can they be found and at what price?

I make them for the ZX10 now and I also make them for other bikes. Have sold over 1000 sets since 1995 and have never had a problem.

The slotted area of the ZX10 is smaller than the ZX636 and ZX12. I'll take some pics of the ZX10 set as soon as I make another set. Here are some from other bikes that I make. The price is $295.00 including shipping and add $50 if you want them Powder coated black. They extend 3 1/2-7 inches (see last pic)

For Dragracing. It helps keep the Front End down by extending the wheelbase

gixx1300r,

I'm interested in a set of the black powdered ones, possibly two, so where do you want me to send payment to and how long is the turnaround? Thanks.
