After the arm is lengthened, remember to paint it before you install it to keep it from rusting. After it is welded upon and the new metal is added, it will rust.
I don't have a good picture of my arm, but if no one else has one, I may be able to post one in a couple of days.
Or, someone could just scan and post the picture of a lengthened arm that was in the issue of MXA. That it where I learned of the mod.

ONLY: He showed me his SHORTENED linkage arm on his YZ426F AND tried to convince me it made his clutch EASIER to pull. After lecturing him about leverage and moment-arm principles of physics (you can't win here if the other guy never had or flunked physics), I took the Psychological Approach:"Maybe it just FEELS easier because you don't have to pull the clutch (hand) lever as far and are therefore getting the over-center let-off effect sooner."
Even a demonstration of how I could lift his big a$$ easier with a longer lever (beer can included) did not convince him :mad:Besides, as big as he is (6'4" 260lbs) WHAT DIFFERENCE COULD IT REALLY MAKE!!!???
BTW, he shortened his himself.

But....if the guy was that big, i wouldn't have argued much with him. HA!
Mine really improved my clutch pull.
