    250r +2 swinger

    Anyone have pics on a +2 swinger on thier bike. I'm at point I need to decide stock or +2.
    If you run plus 2 do you like it's feel over stock.

    +2" extended swingarm w/re-valved & re-sprung oem shock. I didn't notice any adverse changes in the handling qualities, going from oem length to plus 2, but now it's just slightly less wheelie happy in the dunes, which is pretty much all I ride anymore. The biggest noticeable change, was how much tighter it is in the back of my Ram 3500 shortbed now.

    Red rider, your 250r is one of my all time favorites. What headlight shell is that?

    In fact, Chuck Norris round house kicked a Trail Pro one time and was rewarded with a broken foot.

    +2" Westcoast, Been beating the crap out it in Mi. trails for years. the only difference I notice over stock is slightly less dig when powering out of a turn. A stock arm seems to transfer the power a bit harder to the ground.

    Thank you. The headlight is a 350X unit, with an aluminum shroud wrapped around it.

    Nice trike Rosco! It'd probably go even faster if you put a chain on it!

    Original build was at least 10 years ago, those pics are old, probably has 3000 miles and a couple top ends sense.
