And one from the side.

The bike has a shock from a newer 250 Ninja, so the preload is adjustable. With the added leverage of the longer swingarm, I changed the preload setting to the maximum. After jumping on the swigarm, it seems like it may be enough, but I have a lot more weight to put on the bike. We'll see if I have to replace the spring with something heavier.

I joined two chains together to cover the extra 8 inches of the swingarm. The welds are rough and the 2 chains aren't permanent. After I finalize more things, I'll weld covers over the square holes in the sides of the swingarm, make it look better and paint it, and replace the chains and sprockets.

Now that I have room for my butt, next is a place to sit!
