Look real close at the pic below (yeah, right - like you can see anything!). I cut the shock mounts off the top of the swingarm, then drilled and sleeved through the swingarm at the location I wanted the shocks to mount.

Others simply reversed the swingarm so the shock mounts were now on the bottom, but you have to do something about the chain guard mount.

One thing to know is that if you run drag pipes with the butt lowered, the front one will drag.
