Stretched Lowered Question?

Hey thanks for taking the time to help me out.

I have a 03' R1 and i stretched the swingarm 12 Inches over stock and just lowered the front end to even it out. I didnt Lower it because i love street riding and like to get the lighter females on the back here and there, and if i lowered it for the track as i would do i would not be able to have a small passenger on the back. Anyways my question is:


Will a normal Braided brake line (rear) fit on the swingarm or now because its extended will i need a special one?

Also:


What sized chain do i need now for my 12 inch stretch. It will be set at either 11 or 12 inches?

Since im not in it for the Racing but more for the look im not going to bother getting a sprocket.

just would have to measure from the rear caliper to the peg assembly,and add 2'' inches for a bend where needed and have one made up,ther are places around that will make you one..however you need.......on the chain,i use a spare scrap chain and add the two tegether so you can mark it where you need it,and then count the pins on the chain,remove and order according to your pin count...if your in it for looks ,more than racing it,get a good O-ring chain...

Yes, you are going to have to get a new rear brake line. Just get a 11"-15" braided line kit, It will only eun you about $65.00 ca.
Also, I hate to brake it to you man, but I'm sorry you wont be able to put you girfriend on the back anymore. evryone knows what I mean.
I say if your gonna stretch it, (for looks) why not lower it as well, If you dont lower it. It's going to look like ass!
But to each his owne. "DIFFERENT STROKES, FOR DIFFERENT FOLKS" i guess;

Anyways,,,,,,,Hope that helps.
