Yes it can be done. Use the search function up top and you'll find several threads on this. There's a thread on here that has a website for bolt in extensions.

Oh, and welcome to the forum.

Running a gsxr swingarm isn't going to be easy.
Lengthening the Kat's swingarm will be a lot easier.

Simple process...

2mm or equiv mild steel. Bend into matching tubes, and weld on the extension size you want.

Move the brake arm... or mod to use an armless setup with a RF900 caliper and caliper bracket.

Use a bandit 1200 rear wheel.

No need to do anything real special, the extension will give you room for the wheel. Just use the 20mm axle, spacers, and a caliper bracket.
