Mike, as always you give exceptional details with your mod descriptions. My favorite mod of yours is still the garage door opener button
Question for ya: I know you ride hard like I do, Iíve seen your footpegs.. so wonít lowering your bike make it even more difficult for you in the turns?

It makes it extremely hard on the turns. It's exactly the reason why my footpegs look like they do. The hairpin turns on HWY 18 up in Big Bear have me scraping pegs at ~20mph. But overall it is a lot easier to scrape the pegs and frame during "normal" riding. But if you tend to be an easy sunday driver, I doubt you'll ever have problems.

Thanks Mike! Your great photo write up sure made this doable for me. I installed Soupyís Adjustable Links tonight and it looks great. By my measurements the links were set at 1.75Ē from the factory. I took a short city ride this evening and it felt good albeit I was scraping my heels much more. Iím having a 240 installed next week so Iíll wait until then to make any needed adjustments. Keep up the great work Mike.

Thats awesome =) and THANK YOU! We will be using this guide to put my links on when they get here next week =)
I like where you put the guardian bell LOL ours are getting beat up because we have them on the front of the bikes below the horn. When ever we corner tightly, they get dragged. Mine still jingles but Toby's has been dragged so badly he doesn't have the clapper in it anymore lol
I think we will need to relocate our bells... the pic is of toby's bell

Hey I don't want to move my bell, it matches the bottoms of my pegs.

The combo 240 with the 1" drop actually gives you more clearance in corners because the tire keeps it higher longer than the 210. On the 210 you are on the edge and have only the height of the side wall. With the 240 you never get to the edge of the tire when scraping pegs. But setting on the bike straight up it is 3/4 of an inch or more lower than the stock tire with stock bones.
I'm sure stock height would give you much more clearance with the 240.

She's that crazy woman that showed up when I bought the white Sryker. Not sure if she knows my wife or not.
