That was just an assumption on my part. HPN listed 245mm for their bike that uses the 1100 swingarm and it seems like they push everything as far as they possibly can. I haven't actually measured and assembled and tried to break it. Someone give me measurements and I'll CAD it up. Anybody have all these parts laying around??
