Ok here's the pic's and how I did it.
The stock KZ650 arm and the stock GPz arm.

Whipped up this little jig to hold it.

Use'd some spare ecentric's and the swingarm bolt for a way to hold the arm to start with.

Cut the end's off the GPz arm and started fitting thing's back together
Got a little long at first.


Ended up at 8" stock wheel base adding 5-1/2" to the GPz arm.



Stock arm VS GPz long arm.

Got a little done dressing the weld's. Cleaned up were Mac added
a little gusset were I cut and bent the tube to make it straight.

Notch in the lip is from when I did the lower wheelie bar mount's
I'll have Mac built it up when he weld's the new shock mount's.


Both side's are at this point but still a bunch of work left to paint it black.

Stuck the arm on today so I could count link's and order new chain tomorrow.


Think I'll fill the empty spot with a little blue bottle.

Got the new chain prep'd today any one need some o-ring's for their chain ?
What a PITA pickin the o-ring's out of a 120 link chain.

Here's a video of why I did this to a brand new chain free horsepower.
Click the pic and see how stiff an o-ring chain is.
