Post Modifying stock motor mount
Greetings. I have been looking for an alternative to stretch kit since most place do not have them in stock or are very pricey. I was thinking about modifying the stock motor mount to cut and weld a 3-5 inch extension plate from the pivot point. Has anyone else tried this? Not looking for an extreme stretch, but something OEM looking and lowering the bike so my girl can ride it.

I doubt anyone has. If you do build one try and copy the current stretch kits as those have been tested and made to be structurally strong. If you try and make your own design or use wrong materials then this can be a failure point on your scoot which will not be good if it decides to snap going 40mph+
