I seen Johns ( composimo ) bike at the small bore fest back in June. Who has done it and what’s your opinion about it. I am a fan of long little bikes. But just curious.

Damn 62 views and no one had any response? I know someone on this forum had to have done it by now

I wish I could give a better answer but, stretch your bike if you are only in it for the looks... Remember that stretching the bike lowers the rear suspension so you have to deal with that on the front end as well. There are plenty of better upgrades for you to consider

I was lurking hoping for someone to put up some pictures of theirs. I doubt this will be something I do, but I can't rule it out. YouTube did recommend a vid on a bobber setup a group did on the Monkey, I fear for my wallet if that ever becomes a kit.

Sean, I started to reply, but since we have the majority of the inventory for that stretch, I didn't as my opinion would be taken by mostly as a sales pitch. Since you've asked again, I'll offer you my feedback, and just point out we don't sell product we don't like in the first place. It's a great piece and does make the bike look pretty sweet. Be aware it lowers the bike a decent amount, so if stock ride height is a concern, you'd want longer eye to eye shocks.

I’m glad you responded only in that it means I can ask questions. :) What else would be required for that stretch? I suspect brake lines and shocks, anything else?

If anyone thinks your opinion is a sales pitch. Then they honestly don't know your history. I appreciate you and the company you have. I just received the m-take Monday. I know I should have waited like you said, but sometimes I get excited and jump the gun early. Cost me more money but it is what it is. Thanks for the feedback.

I used a udom karchang??? Kit from beez.. it’s only a minor stretch at 3.5-4inches but it allows you to use the factory suspension mounts so the bike will actually sit slightly higher. You could use the factory brake lines but I changed them for longer ones for peace of mind. I got them purely for looks and they should compliment the fatty wheels I have coming.

I'm surprised that theres not more people doing this. Coming from a Honda Ruckus, this was one of the first things most people did. Very interested in this setup and would love to see more pics and maybe some insight into the install. Was it straight forward or were there any hiccups installing this kit.

Question, I’m assuming you also changed the chain if so which one did you go with? Was there anything else needed? I’m really impressed with the look and think I might want to go with it your help would be greatly appreciated.

Just went with a DID 420 chain which I believe is what the factory uses. Monkey doesn’t have that much power so chain stretch isn’t that much of an issue. The only issue is the rear brake line. You can make the factory one work but it’s borderline stretched. Any brake shop can rig one up for you cheap

Ok, so I can just use the stock chain then? I’ll order a new longer brake line to be safe. Thanks
No.. you use a chain similar to the stock one.. the factory chain will be too short. I don’t think you can just buy an off the shelf brake line too. You’ll need to bring the bike into the shop so they can make up a new line to suit the angles of the factory barbs.. brake lines do not like to be twisted..
