Hey Slikvik !!!
I had to use (TWO .025" shims) Total of .050" on the RIGHT HAND side between the Swingarm and Frame. May be different fit on your Frame.

Kool too kool

Looks like you got it fitted about right, I have my swingarm torqued and with the shocks removed if you lift the swingarm to the top of its travel and let it fall it takes a second or two to reach the bottom of its travel, wich I use as a good fitment guide ........kool dude



I woke up to 4 inches of fukin snow and shivered me nuts off in my garage .....really not happy

Look at this picture and see where the belt rest against the lower part of the soft tail. This is a wear spot area where your paint will be rubbed off after a few rides and hitting bumps. Notice on a stock soft tail this area is flattened to eliminate the waer area. I built one of these frames and after powercoating and paint, I was not happy with this immediate wear spot. You're at a stage in the build you can do something about it now. Take a look at a stock soft tail, yours, then figure out how you're going to eliminate that problem. Its an eye sore. Every time I walked around my bike once it was finished, I couldnt see anything else but that area! These details determine the quality of the frame. To me, DNA frames are cheap. No offense to your project. I wouldnt use another.

'I was referring to the pictures in post#22
Where the belt is resting on the lower portion of the swingarm/softtail...take a marker and draw down both sides of the belt...you will se where the belt will take the paint off when the swingarm moves up and down...another problem area with these frames is the front control mounts...not all are designed to bolt flat to the bracket...be sure to mount what you're going to use before powdercoating..just lessons learned...you'd figure a manufacturer would work the details out but as I said..its just a basic frame..thats all
