Hey guys im new to the forums...I was wondering if I could get some help on something. I want to stretch my zx11...its purley for aesthetics..I don't race or anything. Anyhow, Im not very mechanically inclined (working on that) and I want to put together a list of what I need for a stretch kit. Im having trouble finding any swingarm extensions for a 1990 zx11 C1..I think I've found a chain..an EK 525 ZZZ. Im wanting 6" of stretch so im guessing it will need 152 links and not 120 and I shouldnt have any trouble finding a 36" brake line. Basically all I need are the extentions, chain, and brake line right? If so does anyone know where I can find some extentions? I found some for a 93 zx 12 but am not sure if they are interchangable.

Thanks in advance and sorry for being such a noobie ><

First off, just a warning, there are a bunch of "You'll ruin the handling" purists on here that are going to blast you.

Not sure I've seen a lot of extensions, it is harder to do on the cam style tensioning swingarms than it is on the slotted box style. Mostly heard of modified or aftermarket swingarms.

Stock chain is 530 and 110 links. 6 inches more, x2, x1.6 links per inch (5/8 inch links, what the 5 stands for in 530) = 19.2 or round up to 20 links. So a 130 link chain should be what is required.

Best of luck to you.
