Fixing the wheelie's

Since the bike like's to wheelie now about 40ft. out I decided to stretch it some.

Going 8 inch over was 2 1/2" over with the GPz swing arm. 
The stock KZ650 arm and the stock GPz arm.

Whipped up this little jig to hold it.

Use'd some spare ecentric's and the swingarm bolt for a way to hold the arm to start with.

Cut the end's off the GPz arm and started fitting thing's back together
Got a little long at first.

Ended up at 8" stock wheel base adding 5-1/2" to the GPz arm.

Stock arm VS GPz long arm.
