    There is much LESS to go wrong with the dogbones.

    I read somewhere you have to pull the swingarm to install the bones? I did not want 2 pull that, but as far as I know you need to pull it to do air?

    Forgot the switchblade pegs, front signals, and bolt covering kit, heal-toe shifter from kury.My buddy is cutting out the custom swingarm covers for me next week I hope, I sent him the diagram for it 2 days ago express mail . should look awsome he's going to cut out the raider logo in to them with the backward R, he works at a very awsome shop where they make airplane landing gear and he has access to all the cnc cutters for that high polished alum. I'm going 2 see if he he has time to do neck covers for me with some type of insignia on them. just depends on how busy he is on when I will get hem back. but he is the foreskin there so that helps, + the guy is a certified welder in all fields, He makes the coolest stuff. for his RC hobbys I'm still trying to draft up a custom shield for the front of the engine that no one else has.

    No need to pull the swing arm.

    Here's what you do:

    I had my dealer do the install. I got started, found the rear motor mount was tighter than I could break loose while the bike sat on the sidestand and because I didn't have a proper stand or someone to lend a hand I thought I'd better quit before I dumped the bike over. But with the proper tools it's well within a gearhead's capability.
