Here is a pic of my rear drive train set up.

I will be using a quad style carrier with U joint pludgin axles

If ride height is strait accross I can get 31 degree angle up and 31 degree down saftley. I can push 38 if I want too.
Depending on lenght of the axles I am looking at 18 - 21 inches of total travel.

Sweeeeet.
I play around with a rhino when I get bored at work but it's stock and it's such a pig. But long travel 1000cc's could be some fun!

I might have a full titanium Muzzy silencer in my garage from when we used to buy/fix/sell wrecked bikes. If I have it you can consider it yours for cost of shipping. Want me to look?

Ya if you could! I would love to have a extra to chop, cut or play with.....or maybe even duel exhaulst if I could find a way to get it to run good.

I hear the R1s do not like dual exhaulst, 4 cylinders going into one chamber draw more are then only 2 cylinder into 1 chamber.

Let me go look, I'll post pictures if it didn't get thrown away recently and I find it.

Well got a little further today......

Pretty much just cut out all the BS stuff and am getting plans. I "should" have my rear carrier before this weekend and will get my steel this weekend and can start the mock up

I wish it would warm up so I could wash the darn thing
