It's going to look nice but holy smokes thats going to be alot of polishing to keep up on.... Are those Pumashine trx450 to 250 peg adapters I spy in the top left corner of the top pic? I was curious how those would work with the trx450 roll pegs.

How does that 450r swingarm change effect the shock linkage ratio? Is there shock builder that has this dialed in and is setting up shocks for this all new non factory linkage ratio?

good question on the shock. I came up with this set up years ago on a mock up in my shop but never tried it. I measured all points from my stock swingarm. linkage points and shock position. I then installed the 06 swinger and had to make adjustments on the linkage arms to be functional. all appeard to be in workable order I posted this information on .net  I remember a member took it to the next level and did the swap over he posted a video and he also replied he had owned several r's in the past and that this was a smoother ride. this will be my first try at it. so lets hope it works in all aspects. if I fail at it then I go back to the drawing board.
