Twingle- I am going to test it once I get the wiring back together again. I undid the wiring last night again to see if I can hide the "rats nest" better. I am thinking that if there is any twist in the set up it would be from the swingarm since the new chrome shocks are SUPER stiff compared to the stock ones.
added note- I was able to "tweek" the swingarm by hand to be able to get the rear wheel to fit in the slots. I took the stock swingarm just for shits and giggles and tried to bend it by hand and it was much harder.
