Started working on my girlfriends motorcycle. Currently she's on her toes when she holds it up. my goal is to lower it until she can flat foot it, and make it a semi-bobber/solo ride. I started some tear down today, ears, sissy-bar, rear foot pegs ( I see I will need to fab some replacement plates to support the exhaust)
When doing away with stock air intake set-up, is there anyway to remove the surge tank without removing the engine or cutting it?
I uncovered the seat to trim down the foam to a lower profile, as well as a little narrower, insert a gel pad, chop the rear seat off, and finally recover. Is there any good reason not to use leather?
Lowering; rear shocks-I see shorter, and plates to relocate the bottom of them further back. Looking it over and since I'm doing away with passenger capabilities, but not the shocks or rear fender. Why can't I just slice off the top shock mount and relocate it further up?
I'm going to mount a top case with a back pad on top the rear fender.
Tell me what you think, ideas, input, criticism. I appreciate any advice I can get
