wheel base??

Recommended Posts

I am wonndering what effects running a shorter or longer wheel base has on dirtbikes. I have a rm 125 and looking to make it a better hill climber and was wondering, if make a longer wheel base, would help it climb better. (I already know about the sprocet and fly wheel weights. and proper jetting)

thanks

If you mean putting a stretched swingarm on the bike, yes it would make it a better climber. If you just mean running the adjusters out all the way and maybe adding a link or two of chain, it's not going to make much difference. Putting on a longer swingarm is going to start chain adjustment issues though.
