Current thoughts are a set of CM drop triples, and a matching rear hagon shock for about a 1" ride height raise.

Now... do I want to drill it for some bars, or keep clipons...
You could get an inch up front if you used regular bars because you would not need the top of the fork to clamp the clip-on to and you could slide it down in the triple clamp. If you wanted to keep a clip-on bar find one that clips below the top clamp like a Honda one and has a little bit of a rise to be more comfortable. This will also allow you to slide the forks down some.

True, but that ain't exactly the cleanest way to do it. I think with the cognito drop triples and a clean set of bars, it will be not only more comfortable, but will have a nice clean look.

More subframe work. Also another reason to lower the forks is that I don't think I have enough clearance from the front fender to the frame. The drop triple, clamps, and bars are in the mail...

Currently cleaning up wiring and waiting on rear shock. Front brake lines came in and still have to order the battery. The bars at 29.25" feel perfect.


Decided to keep the fuse block and make a bracket for it. Also took almost 2" out of the headlight ears - was out way too far as you can see above.


The headlight is bright as well!

New lines, F4i master cylinder to lose that ugly reservoir and fresh fluid.

Subframe is in. Antigravity 12 cell, mosfet R/R, and the rest of the wiring like the turn signals and gauge prep gets me back to being a runner.
