hummm............ I can't think of an "easier" mod I have done.... even bolting the aftermarket seat on was more difficult.
Yes, it was easy for you....
but not everyone is as gifted...
let me tell you the story then............
An old freind calls me and asks how hard is it to put new shocks on. He lives a state over so I don't see myself making the trip to help him...as I know he is a bit , uh , mechnically challanged.
So , I go over the proceedure on the phone to him , making sure he repeats it all back so I am sure he understands each , yes easy , simple step.
30 minutes later I get a call from him. His bike is banged the hell up. I am picturing he forgot to do something and went for a ride........No.
Seems he figured, on his own here, he could make lifting the rear wheel up "easier" by placing a long board under it and have his wife lift it up from behind while he stuck on one of the shocks.
Well you might envision what happened ... I will fill it in for you anyway.
As soon as his wife lifted the board, it not only raised the rear wheel, but it also provided a nice incline for it to roll down....it was more or less a long lever that pushed the bike foreward. The bike moved forward just enough to walk off the centerstand, the bike rolled a few feet, and fell over.
Minor damage to the exhaust, broken lever, cracked windscreen and a tiny dent in the tank.
So any time someone says something is easy, I inform them things can still go wrong.............
