Does anyone out there have a strecthed 09 or newer CBR 1000RR. Ive got a customer who bought extension kit and when I bolted everything together the space where you would put the wheel is between 3/4 to 1in to narrow it wont even come close to fitting.. Any information would be great thank you!

I dont even have the back plate on no bolts are even in yet and way to narrow. Ive done probably 60+ stretches never seen this.. Ive had some tight fit ones but this in over 3/4in to narrow. Didnt know if maybe they have a bend in the new factory swing arms to prevent extensions or if maybe someone out there has one and they moded them or had no problems like this maybe a defective swingarm

if its that bad, either the arm is bent or the extensions. Extensions are easy to check with a straight edge....
make sure theres no burrs keeping it from being flat on the arm.. etc.

if all that clears, the only logical explanation is the swingarm is bent. it is supposed to be parallel.

I dont like talking about it much since stretched bikes are my thing, but its a big moneymaker for my friends bike shop, so I am around them a lot. he did blocks on a 2012 the other week, no unusual issues. I dont know the brand of them or anything, but they fit just fine.

Mine is stretched 9 inches. I ride rough roads where i live and the bike rides a lot smoother with a wider wheel base. I'm not the rider that rides twisties. I ride to work and back. After you stretch it it will be difficult to make sharp turns of course
