Re: Evil Swingarms

Well I got the arm on yesterday and all I can say is Soupy's links are deff not a problem with lowering. Here is a pic of when I just put them on. I haven't adjusted the height yet and didn't rivet the chain yet either. Doing that tonight. This is just a mock up pic.



And a little with the lights. I know, it's just show and no go. Just had them on there before:

Re: Evil Swingarms

Sweet. Your soupy's links worked? Damn mine wouldn't at all. But remember once u sit on that bike its gonna be REAL close to the plate. and if it squats on launch it may hit the tail section

Re: Evil Swingarms

Yeah its really low. Haven't adjusted it yet. The spring hasn't hit the air tank yet. Hope not. Did it hit yours lower or raised.
FYI, you have to ground down the notch that sits inside the stock arm on the caliper bracket

my lowering links from start had two holes stock and -3" drop when i put the arm on i up the bolt in the stock height hole and my bike was serious slammed like 1" oil pan clearance. so i modified my links to raise it up but my spring hit bad.... my notch is untouched on my bracket.

Re: Evil Swingarms

Not yet Thunnda. I put the swingarm on and need to get that adjusted. I have a extra kickstand to cut down and also need to get some main bearings so that I can lower the front as much as I need to. I heard that you can only go about a 1/2'' with no spacers on the forks.

Did you lower yours up front? If you did, what bearings or type of spacer did you use? Thanks man.

Re: Evil Swingarms

Ok for kickstands I took my stock one and I cut 3 inches of it out of the middle and welded it back together so it looked stock. And for the front I lowered mine the proper way and had them cut

I used shims of sheet metal between the forks and clipon's to go lower than the 1/2 inch. Scoob did a mod where he actually cut the clipon to make up for the diameter difference. Thats a nice way to do it as well.

Re: Evil Swingarms

I guess I'll take a closer look at it and see if I will do what Scoob did. I was following what he was doing and forgot about him cutting the clip-on area so they would close more.

Re: Evil Swingarms

Well I went to adjust everything tonight and ran into a dilemma. I am a bigger guy and don't want my bike sitting on the ground. Well I adjusted the Soupy links all the way short to raise it back up. Well its still to low.

There is still about a inch and half left on one side. So I thinking that I may be able to take them apart cout the one side of.threads to make them work?

Any suggestions?

Re: Evil Swingarms

Take it apart and make sure the heim joint clears everything. That was my dilemma if I cut the threads down the link didn't clear something. I forgot what it hit though off the top of my head. Hit up spydi and see if he'll send u the pick of what he did

Hey Spydi can you post some picsof your set up for the shock set up. Mine is really slammed with the links completely adjusted in the heightened setting.

Thanks

Re: Evil Swingarms

Ok I got the link I hope spydi doesn't mind. He basically drilled another hole and welded around it to add some extra metal and reground everything smooth

Re: Evil Swingarms

Spydi's links:



I see, he was using the holed links. I have the soupy links that are adjustable.

Here's what mine looks like
