Default My 600F3 Wants a new look

Im just asking for opinions here, just to what everyone thinks. Im kinda leaning toward stretching my bike out a little. How far would be the starting question? And does it affect the handling a whole lot? Im not the person doing a 100 on a back road, im the one just cruising and see who all heads i can turn. Here is how it sits as of now?

Nice bike, Well its all about what you want. The handling will change somewhat and the bike would not respond as well depending
on your input on the bike. But if you are just cruising then it should be no problem.

Getting the swingarm stretched is not hard. The hard part is finding someone to fabricate the swingarm correctly. Then you will need a longer chain, chain guard and of course a longer brake line. I have a single sided swingarm on my F3 and it was a task mounting it and finding all the parts I needed. Mounting your stretched swingarm should be a cake walk. I bet you can install the swingarm yourself with all the parts in front of you if you have a mechanical background. Good luck if you decide to go that route and make sure to post pictures.
