    Wouldn't hurt to mount the slider down flush on the swing arm either. Every degree helps.
    Looking forward to seeing this at Dan's soon!

    Great sporty build!
    I made a new pivot and welded it in place an inch and a quarter lower to get around this issue

    I was lookin at my bike and the rear motor mount thinkin it wouldn’t be too hard to make a bolt on swing arm pivot to move the pivot down.

    Those 4 big ass bolts ought to be able to hold it on.

    My bike doesn’t need it, but any taller and i can see how it would definitely benefit.
