MRI has them, just ordered mine last week. You have to have air to set it on the stand though.

Baddd, you might want to lower your front forks. It'll bring the bike back to stock height.

Progressive or the monotubes would be just fine? Take a transfer gauge or level and place it under your frame rail, then while some is holding it up straight take the measurement to reach plumb. Should be like 1 1/2" - 2 " drop.

I used the Progressive lowering kit and lowered mine 1.25". No loss of ride quality and bike feels great.

PM makes a longer kickstand for those using a 21" front tire, but IMO its not worth it.

Thanks for the help guys just a quick thought, I have seen that Arlen ness makes a different damper set up instead of changing everything has any body seen that or used it?
