rear wheel swap

Chris,

Could you post up some info on your rear wheel swap? Specifics would be great: what spacers, what axle, how was the brake fitment.... etc.

Thanks

The longer clevis changes the angle of the shock and makes it interfere with the upper pivot on the swingarm. I'll give it another shot, then I'll drill it. Thanks for the feedback though. Good to...

So far looking like I'll come in just about at budget. With everything so far, including the used rear shock, bearings, bike and front end, I'm in for $720. That leaves $300 or so for tires,...
