It is definitely way better, I still have a little around 80 mph but it is easily tolerable. Also I am very rarely at that speed for long anyway.That looks great. How do you like the ride after putting the lowing kit on it ?
I didn't notice a whole lot of difference in the ride. I can definitely tell it was lowered though in the turns. Just feels like it falls into the turns now.
Also can you tell me how the Buffering is after you installed the new windshield ?
I only lowered the rear and I dropped it right at 2". I may be wrong but I don't think there is a way to lower the front.how much did you lower the read and the front
No issues so far although I don't ride too aggressively anymore. I'm 57 and I "think" I've passed that stage in my life.Nice bike! Any issues with cornering after you lowered it with dragging the bags or floorboards. thumb up
Yes I used the adjustable and I bought it new on EBAY. I am still using the stock kickstand as well. True the bike doesn't lean as much as before but as long as you pay attention to how you park it you shouldn't have any issues. I saw where some removed the rubber piece and I may end up doing that, not sure yet.did you use the adj. link? and keep the stock kickstand
or a shorter one?
I’m there with you on age, but I still like the sweepers. Living in flat Florida will do that to people. I have the sunset red that is blacked out but if I had to choose a second color I would choose white after seeing yours. Cool Bike thumb up!!!!
I got the best deal at Mancuso South which is in La Marque, ask for Blake. The Mancuso closest to me ( Gulf Fwy ) wouldn't hardly deal at all. And the salesman there ( Todd ) was an a$$.I live in La Porte so we're not that far apart. Great looking bike. If you don't mind my asking, where did you buy your XC from?
I was just up at Polaris West on Saturday. Did you see the Orange XC they have? Has all kinds of goodies including Freedom True Dual exhaust. SWEET looking bike. Supposedly goes like "a scalded cat" according to the owner/builder. Didn't ask him "how much?" though.That's funny. I tried Team Mancuso on the Gulf freeway, and yes Todd is a jerk. They high ball every price and they wouldn't return calls or emails. I also talked to Blake in La Marque but I decided to go to Polaris West in Katy. Got a great deal & I pick my 14 XC up on Saturday. Dealers around here suck. But team mancuso south and Polaris West are the only 2 I'd go to.
