I saw an 883 the other day for the first time and it was the first Harley I've seen that I wouldn't kick out of my garage. I know it's the "girl's" Harley, but it seemed like a natural bike, not all glitzed and hyped to be super macho and stupid. Seemed like fairly decent ergos too.

I just got my swingarm extensions for the swingarm mock-up. Insert them into the swingarm ends to lengthen it, find the right geometry, then begin cad design of the new swing arm. Mock-up pictures to follow...

how much are you going to lengthen the swingarm or should i say how much do the extensions add.

The extensions are installed and looks like a ~4" increase in swingarm length feels & looks about right. Wheelbase will be ~64" when suspension is fully extended. I'll take some pictures this weekend and post them.

Next step is select rear shock and begin new swingarm design.... Any sugestions on a rear shock ? Im considering a Progressive 465 series but need to make sure spring rate and travel are adequate.

we are tracking about the same I am having a swingarm built for mine. I have the shock location figured out and will be using a single shock. I am working with Rick at motocd.com on the shock. It will be a one off build, unless we end up with the same swingarm design then it may work on yours too. My swing arm will be 2" longer, I am trying to keep it no more than 62" WB. No good reason for that wb other than the longest of the ADV bikes is the KTM ADV and the 800 gs both right at 62" That is not to be a negative on 64" as that is what the HPN air head conversion bikes end up at.

enough rambling on your thread

Sounds good. I had the Cogent Moab shock on a KLR from motocd and liked it. I'll check them out - thanks.

It will be interesting to see how close our designs get to each other. I'll post some pic's as I get into it.

Very interesting project. Never seen a dual sport sporty. You might be on to something here. Can't wait to see how this project ends. So far it is looking pretty trick.

Installed the swingarm extensions and looks like +4" extension is about where I i'd like it, but still need to do some cad layout on the geometry and swingarm / shock to make sure all the dim's work out.

With 4" extension and the KTM front end w/ 21" wheel - new wheel base is ~64". A bit long, but should help with stability at speed. We shall see
