Just look at this monster:
I didn't even check there price list yet. That what I just told was info I got from a guy I spoke to on the Touratech travel event I went to last weekend.

I think the restriction is not the drive shaft but the max angle the final drive can make in the stock 1100 or 1150 swing arm.
The final drive touches the inside of the swing arm on min and max wheel travel.

Their swing arm looks like a monster indeed
