I've looked very seriously into replacing the swingarm. I found a photo of the mono swingarm many Thai's have used but NONE will tell me what brand it is or what bike it's off but apparently, it's a perfect bolt-on fit. I know it's ridiculous but there are pix of this swingarm on 250's and k45g's with 180 rear tires haha.Looks stunning! Hope some day you replace the stock swing arm. The only major aesthetic improvement left if you ask me.
Do a lot people try to race with you?
Yes, I get tons of 'challenges' from bigger bikes. Quite a lot will pull up to me at a light and ask what model it is. Most Honda's know it's a 300 but they think it's a 1 of a kind import from somewhere. I go to bike nights on some weekends and nobody makes fun of the little 300 at all. They are mostly impressed.
Wheelies in 1st(popping clutch) is super fun, and if I really slam it into 2nd I can get the front tire off the ground about an inch. I know it's not a big deal but I can keep up with the new Ninja 300's up till about 82mph then I start to top out(low gearing 13/38) and that's when they pull away.
