Honda Metropolitan Stretch Kit Install
This is an install guide for the Small Fast Things Honda Metropolitan CHF50 Stretch Kit.
Before installing the stretch kit, you need to remove the stock motor hanging bracket and motor. It is also recommended you remove the rear body panels to assist with positioning and staging parts to check proper fitment. Furthermore, this stretch kit was designed specifically to work with in conjunction with the Ruckus Swingarm conversion. You may also be required to cut or trim some panels depending on how low you setup is or what size tire you use. Please note, this kit will only work with stock, 10x5, or 12x5 wheels. This kit will NOT work with fatty wheels.
Below is the stretch kit installed on a motor with the Ruck swingarm conversion. The motor bolts up under the front cross bar of the Met rear frame. Also shown is the extended shock arm installed in the shock mounting point on the frame.
To install SFT Met CHF50 Stretch Kit on the Met rear frame, remove the stock motor hanger and install the stretch kit with the "red bushing" siting into the left frame compartment as shown below.
On the right side of the frame, there will be some space between the mount and the frame bushing that will need to be filled with washers. Tighten both frame bolts to 30ft/lbs.
Install the rear extended shock arm as shown below.
Below is a view of the Met stretch kit installed with the body panels installed.
This is a side view of the stretch kit with the body panels installed. This kit is fully stock shock compatible but it is highly recommended to upgrade to a aftermarket shock that is stiffer and adjustable.
Lastly, remember to tighten all nuts and bolts. Use and install at your own risk.
