Finally got to the windshield. After a few rides I've decided to shorten it about 3 inches and round the top.

I got the Eibach 600lb in spring on. The sad thing is that I still need to run the preload on 4!!! I guess I'll be adding raising links soon.

Added the Warhawk decals. Definitely adds to the look.

I'd never thought to use a quad seat. I love the "No Step" decals.

Wow. This is very interesting to me.

I recently picked up a 400lb Eibach and it was considerably softer than stock. A 600lb spring should be VERY sturdy. I dont know all your details about rider and luggage weight, but that just seems wrong. I'm 220-225lbs geared up, rarely carry luggage. What is up with these Eibach's? I'm not saying there is a problem,per se, but I feel like we are seeing a pattern.


I dig the decals and paint. That is a tough looking bike.

Yeah not sure what to make of the Eibach rating system. I'll be adding lifting links I guess.

I considered lifting links, too, but I really dont want to throw the bike any higher than needed.

I plan to turn up an additional preload spacer for my bike soon. Justjeff did it to his bike with good results, and I'm gonna follow his lead. If you are interested, I can turn up another one for you. No real idea on the timeframe, but I'm hoping to have the spacer made up within the next few weeks.

Just putting it out there. I assume no liability on the effectiveness, just following Jeff's lead and giving it a whirl. lol
