Looking to put more of my weight over the bars for control(seat comes up a bit)

but mainly so the horrible rake comes closer to 105 deg for better cornering control.

Lookin' good. I actually think for the exhaust that a cut down stocker would look good! , maybe even get it PC'ed by Scooter.

or Ive got an old '06 gsxr1K can you could use, but Im in Austin.

I have some ideas for the exhaust... would include an oval cutout of the midpipe and a home made reducer jammed inside. But I think it will be too loud; so I may just drill out come of the stock can a bit on both sides of the silencing plate.

the guy at rentmyninja dot com sells a package of front springs and an Elka rear shock for the ninjette for like 500 USD. Maybe the Hyosung is better in that aspect, but the front suspension on the ninja is rubish.
Maybe the will fit in the hyosung too.

I do have full 929 and 900rr front end sitting around I may consider modifying for the hyo in the future.

The front is soft. I can ride around it but Im pretty sure I can bottom out the front if I stop aggressively enough.

Ooo! Good find, Irak. I may add that rear shock to my ninja in time. Still thinking race-tech for the front though.

And Cali. . . viva la 2fiddy!
