Ron, I'm in the middle of making and installing some drop brackets just like the old ones you took off. I went a little thicker on the shackle material and now it looks like its going to interfer with the engine mount. not sure if I will be able to notch around it yet, or possibly do something with the mount instead. I made my brackets go down 3" and back 2" (60 degs @ 3.62" on the shackles). Looking for some insight here I guess? Also, How exactly did you modify the brake cable bracket? Mine is welded to the crossmember. Do I need to cut it off and reweld it or is there something simpler I'm not seeing? Thanks!

Yep, the clearance is tight with engine mount. Maybe you can take a cut on the side of the mount? I cut the cable bracket off and reattached it further back. Then I added a couple of inches to the brake equalizer threaded rod under the floor. This helps with the short brake cable on the drivers side.

Thanks Ron, I was able to grind a little bit of the engine mount to gain my clearence. I also went ahead and ordered a new passenger side brake cable since its longer, and installed it on the drivers side... that way I didn't have to cut and re-weld the anchor bracket. I thought I was coming down the home strech until I went to reinstall my air cleaner box, when low and behold.... it won't fit ! I can't get it back in due to it hitting the crossmember now. Is there any way of modifying this box that I'm not seeing? Or is there any kind of aftermarket air cleaner that I can buy? I've got the air cleaner hooked up without the box right now and I've noticed the power loss and a little backfire when you first depress the peddle now. Help !

Not sure about remounting the air box, I have a v-twin in my cart and don't need it.

Without the air box it is running lean, you are giving the engine more air. To make it run right you need to give it more fuel, you can check this by driving the cart and pull the choke out a little at a time and see if it improves, it should. The fix would be to increase the hole diameter in the main carb jet.

Hey thanks, I've decided to ditch the air cleaner box and go with a K&N. I'm on their website and they have all kinds of options. Anyone know off hand what the flange diameter of my carb is? How about the stock jet size? Any tips on where to order a larger jet?

PS: will post pics of the drop arm brackets this weekend. totaly happy with the way it turned out. The stance is great and the tires are lined up perfectly in the wheelwell.

Ron
Thanks for all your pics of your builds
I would be very interested in purchasing a set of the motor mounts you built. Would you be interested in building up a set for sale ???
I'm in the process of a BB install in my g2 and I really do not like the motor sittign at such an angle. Let me know if your interested, I sure am

Just wanted to post a few pictures of my relocated swingarm. I ended up taking a dremel tool and notching out the bottom of the air cleaner housing to get it to fit. The extra air coming in doesn't seem to affect it. Still going to look into a K&N though. Overall I'm realy happy with the way it turned out.

I was going to ask where you got those diamond plate side covers for your G9 but knowing you, you probably made them.
