this will change how the shock will preform with the leverage and other forces that come into play with the stock style swingarm. its going to take alot of thought to get the angles and lengths right

luck!

performance and travel will increase the more you lower the shock mount, but it will put more leverage on the shock so you will have to make up for that with a heavier spring rate.



oh and most aftermarket swingarms have the stock mount hight. probably just so the customer wont have to set their shock up to much differently...

I'll ship it to ya if you want, but you'd have to pay for the shipping to my house on top of the shipping to German.

From Tx(where classic honda is) to me would be I'm guessing aroud $10-$15

I just shipped some xr70 parts to Australia, and the package I shipped was a little smaller, but close to the same weight. It was like $25 for 4-6week, or $44 for 7-10 day service. I had to fill out a customs form. No big deal.

Not trying to spam or anything, but I have a Classic Honda swinger laying around. Barely even used the thing. It's just been sitting here collecting dust since I got my Five-O. If you want it, shipping to Germany wouldn't be a problem and I'd let it go cheap.

An xr70 swing arm is I belive a +2". The only thing is that tab that the brake drum slides into needs to be moved back on an xr70 swinger, but I would imagine that x-sport would go on the frame easy, but I don't know if you'd have to do any modification to get your rear brake to work as the x-sports are disc.

I actually have one of those too... :)



It's an XR70 swingarm (so it's about 2" longer), so it has XR70 suspension angles (leverage). You would be best served by getting an XR70 iShock for it as well or a XR70 Works Performance shock. It's made of mild steel so it can still bend. I know mine is bent. :p That's why I switched to Classic cro-mo swingarm in the first place. I had to get an XR50 shock and a longer chain for it (it's about 0.5" longer than XR70/Xsport swingarm).
