RACETECH

http://www.racetech.com/

They have online spec guide, but it's a good idea to call their tech support and talk to them, tell them your weight, bike, riding style, etc., and what you want to accomplish.

I have used them for upgrading 3 bikes, and have always been pleased with the results.

GOOD LUCK!

Matt,
Swing by and we can discuss your weight / riding style and make some recommendations.

bluewave18 & v4lu3s, I think you guys meant Motorcycles Unlimited instead of MH!
