Stretching the 14r

I am considering stretching my 14r and need advice on how much to stretch. Are there any pictures?

you may want to do extensions if you're not going to add an airshifter, allot of gearing, shock/or spring.

any time you alter the wheelbase you will affect the handling. But that is all relative to what you define "handling" as....

Just extended, it'll just be a bit lazier in the corners and you have to be very careful with the throttle as you won't have the traction you do at SWB. Lower it down and then you have to contend with ground clearance.

BUT, all is relative to the type of riding you do.

thanks for compliments. yes it is about 6 inch stretch. its 138 links of chain. lowered in the rear on the middle hole of roaring toyz links. i thinks thats about 1- 1 1/2 inches. in the front lowered about 5/8's. just finished mounting my rear view camera and changed grips and added windscreen spikes. next month i should have exhaust on bike. as said before handling does change. longer wheelbase=wider turns.
