Does that Power Commander allow you to eliminate the rev-limiter function of the ECU?Is it programmable to do that, or just over-rideable? Or neither?
I've been trying to keep out of this thread, but your swing arm is going to do some serious harm to your body. It is just too thin to have any bending strength even it were solid steel. If you leave the shocks mounted at the ends of the swing arm. The worst force you have on them is twisting when you are in a turn. but even that will cause metal fatigue and you would have a good chance of the arms breaking at the pivot. If you had left the stock shock on in the original mid mounted position, the arms most likely would have broken right behind the shocks. You need some vertical stiffeners on them to beef them up. That's why most modern swing arms are rectangular tubing at exceed 2" high or more. With the length you have extended you swing arm, you have added an incredible amount bending and twisting force to those small tubes.I don't know how you are planning to mount a monoshock. But I would recommend you mount it like the Vincents and old Yamaha Scramblers of the 70s with a triangulated section that makes the swing arm look like a hard tail. That design would give you a massive increase in bending and twisting strength. Don't wanna try to tell you how to built your bike, but don't wanna see you hurt yourself unnecessarily.Bare
Bar end mirrors..that's next if I ever find a catalog that definitively states it'll fit a G-5...!
Wokka, did you ever get enough seat time to determine the long term comfort of the tractor seat? It's cold enough in my part of the world that I now have to admit I'm off the road for a while so I'm starting on my winter projects. Tractor seat is on the list if it's comfy for long rides.Oh, and you've got me thinking about getting a second fender and plate mount for summer time. Just strip it down to the essentials when the weather is warm and the sun is shining.Scott
