On the new LED turn signals  did you use a flasher relay to keep them working properly ? Or something else?

They're not LED's, standard lights with 6v bulbs thrown in.

Cool, thanks for the info on the baffle! I got too excited and didnt read the name of the poster, it was someone else (photos on the gn400 yahoo group) that had the firestone front tire. It does look slick but i just wanted to see it on a spoke rim.
thanks dude.

Hey man, I had a quick question. Iv'e seen arguments for both sides, Have you had any handling issues with the front end without having any fork supports? I know a lot of people who go without a front fender go with a fork support.
Let me know what you think.
Thanks!

I haven't had any issues with my setup, but I don't push my bike too hard either.  There has been a few times where I have been pushing into a curve or something and I can feel it flex a little, but nothing scary or anything.

Super nice GN250, who knew that they could look so good! :o

I also went through the whoel thread, but was wondering if you can/would add a summary post to the first page with a list of the mods that you did and parts that you use. This woudl be mighty useful and could be referenced as what to start with for others about to embark on similar customs.

Thank you again for all the time and effort.

Just picked up a GN400 for my first bike... love the stance that you gave this bike. How many inches did you lower the front total? and what size rear shocks did you use? Also is it necessary to raise the back if I just lower the forks about 4.5 inches?
