Mono vs Para

Since I dont get to test ride HPNs every weekend, a couple of questions to you guys:

what is the typical net offset on a 1100 para conversion and can you really feel it riding?

I had done my homework based on the thread below, from which I understood it as being a gross swing arm offset of approx 32mm. Is this right?

How much can you reclaim on the wheel offset, keeping in mind you will want clearance for a 140 rear tyre?

How much can you feel it after all that? I assume offroad not at all.

Since I am trying to understand relaltive merits of para vs mono, I assume that on a mono extension you are still going to do a rim offset to get the 140, so will probably have the same general issue anyway.

sweet bike btw
