bars and depending on your weight fork springs and a harder rear spring. If your a little guy (like myself) stock suspension will last awhile. But eventually become way to soft. Set of tires would def help to. The stockers blow.



50whip beat me to it haha.

a longer one yes....a cheap way to upgrad your suspension would be to use stuff from a Honda XR/CRF 70...ya have to do a little mods but not too bad....

a decent chain does not cost that much...just buy a 120 link 420 pitch and you will for sure have enough...use a chain breaker and walla custom fit ....you probably will only use between 80-100 links but having a bit extra when your mocking something up does not hurt...better to be safe than sorry

hey if i add an extended swing arm do i have to get a bigger chain


If the swingarm is extended what does the back wheel do? it moves back and this would require a longer chain to let it move back right ?It's simple math.

google parts fish or bikebandit.com and use the OEM parts finder and you can get ballpark figures on new stuff



used OEM stuff usually gets 1/2 of new and under....I would not pay more than 1/2 of new for anything used (OEM)
