I thought it would be easy too. Looked at speed kits that are supposed to be
'bolt on' and thought I'd try it but then started reading forum messages
about all the little parts that need to be replaced for optimum peformance when installing a 'bolt on'. It then started to sound like a knowledgeable mechanic
would know what works best as far as combinations.
I was running around town today and am now interested to find out
if the forks can be modified and the rear shocks replaced to handle
a bit better. The damn kickstand got in the way too when I leaned
through a turn.
