The ZX-14 has a low subframe that prevents a nitrous bottle from being mounted at the top of the swingarm. However, we have a solution – we weld a tab to the lower section of the swingarm and attach our nitrous bottle bracket, allowing you to mount a bottle easily.

The Motorcycle Swingarm Extended
Your swingarm is the main component of your motorcycle. The swingarm helps manage the load distribution and center of gravity. Extending your swingarm makes your motorcycle forward heavy, giving it a low center of gravity. By pushing the center of gravity as forward as possible, you reduce the chance of your motorcycle wanting to wheelie on hard acceleration, allowing you to launch harder off the starting line.
Why Lengthen your Swingeram?
Lengthening a motorcycle swingarm can affect the bike’s handling and performance. Here are some reasons why someone might consider extending their motorcycle swingarm:
- Improved stability: A longer swingarm can increase the wheelbase of the motorcycle, providing more stability, especially at high speeds and during straight-line acceleration.
- Better traction: A longer swingarm can improve traction by putting more weight on the rear wheel, making it easier to transfer power to the ground during acceleration.
- Reduced wheelie tendency: Lengthening the swingarm can reduce the bike’s tendency to lift the front wheel during hard acceleration, making it more manageable for some riders.
- Customization: Lengthening the swingarm is sometimes done for aesthetic purposes to give the bike a unique look or fit a particular style or theme.
It’s crucial to note that modifying the swingarm can significantly alter the motorcycle’s handling characteristics. Some things to consider when lengthening your swingarm:
- Reduced agility: Longer wheelbases can make the motorcycle less agile and less responsive to quick maneuvers like cornering or lane changes.
- Altered steering geometry: Lengthening the swingarm may require adjusting the motorcycle’s steering geometry to maintain stability and handling. Incorrect adjustments can lead to unsafe handling.
- Suspension tuning: A longer swingarm can affect the bike’s suspension performance, requiring fine-tuning or upgrades to maintain proper balance and ride comfort.
Before considering any modification, including lengthening the swingarm, it’s essential to consult with experienced motorcycle mechanics who have expertise in motorcycle customization. They can guide you through the process, help you understand the potential consequences, and ensure that any modifications are done safely and effectively.
