Shouldn't be too hard to find someone who will want to swap their stock components with yours. Have them pay the labor (or do it themselves). Pretty attractive deal IMO

Yeah, main thing is will probably be buying a new chain i'd think, but if you can find somebody who wants to trade up that would be awesome. I don't hate extended swingarms personally, but the wheel sticking out farther than the tail does look silly.

Yea it won't stay like that for long my mechanic said he would remove the extension blocks and take a few links out the chain that should get me back to stock....

Awesome, it's a nice looking bike. I like the paint scheme a ton.

Should get good gas mileage if you can keep out of the throttle!

Yeah, I went from a f4i to a 1000rr and the power creep is insane. The 1000 is so much smoother than the 600 it's difficult to know how fast you're going until you look down.
