    Just wondering if anyone has converted a paralever GS to a monolever G/S? I'm not considering such a conversion, but the forum has been kind of quiet lately. Offhand I think the monolever swingarm would require lengthening.

    Not a bad idea, since the paralever has issues.

    Since I'm kind of short of inseam, I'm considering putting an R100R shock on, which will not only lower the bike some, (I'd also slide the forks up a bit), but will decrease the angle of the paralever, which reportedly solves or at leasts helps the driveshaft failure problem.
