Widening stock subframe

1761 Views 35 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  thorwarrior915
I'm getting my new shock friday. Its the cheapo shock that starts at 69 bucks on eaby (no idea what the brand name is). I dont know if it will fit between the subframe rails on my bike with the PW 80 swingarm or not. If not, how do you guys go about widening the stock frame? I have seen some little gadget that presses the rails apart... but is there a simpler way? 2x4 and hammer? I swear i'm not as ******* as i sound :lol:

ya, a big hammer or mallet should do it
i heated it up with oxy/acet torch then my buddy got rready with sledgehammer and a 2x4 (cut on the end like a wedge) and hammered the shiz out if it...take off ur tank tho, the flames go a bit might wanna protect that tank ;) and do one side at a time...

maybe he bought the last one ?
MXgraham044 no he didnt get that silver so called race shock. I dont know what the name of his shock is. It looks like it would work good for the price.

No he didnt buy that one, haha someone from another forum got one of those, he says its alright. He says its alot better the stock. I still wouldnt get one though.

If i find a picture of his shock ill post it, unless he posts it before me.

it must be worth it...

id be scared to sit on a cheap shock, who knows.
