Default Hello VF!

Hello,
My name is Eric, I have a 2004 KP that I have owned since 2010. I have been in college since I bought the bike, so I have not had the money to do any mods yet. Since I graduate in May, I decided to buy a Mustang seat for those longer rides with the GF. My next mod will be a progressive 465 rear shock, front fork oil change, pipes, intake and VFCIII-pretty much in that order. I can't wait to dig through the forum and learn from all the bright minds in here. Thanks for letting me join.

You are one of the few who has contemplated the Progressive shock. Actually, the one on the old stock KPs was pretty good, but probably getting tired now a decade after it was built.

Be interested to hear your take on it when you're done.

rear your owners book so you know how to adjust it for your ride. You might not get a good setting for one up and then two up.

Please add your state and model of bike you have. Click user CP @ top of page and then far left click edit signature. Thanks
