If you do wheelies you shouldn't change your swingarm IMO. My buddy has an extended swingarm on his GSXR 750 and his bike will get sideways before it'll do a wheelie

extended swingarm + wheelies= epic fail..... I wouldnt suggest extending the swing arm if you want to continue to do wheelies

The entire point of extended swingarms is so the bike won't wheelie when launching down the 1/4 mile strip. You have an F4i, put down the crackpipe shaped like an extended swingarm and enjoy the bike.
