Not sure I really want to "raise it". I like the lowered "slammed" look, but I was hoping there would be some happy medium without sacrificing the "look".

My understanding it came from the factory lowered since it's "lowboy" model? I'm clueless with this bike other than how to ride it. And since it is mainly a commuter bike at speeds less than 60 during traffic the ride isn't intolerable....at least not yet.

Progressive 440s and new springs in the forks. Will feel like a completely different machine - in a good way.

I'd still crank the rear up an inch if you could - the ride quality will VASTLY improve as will the cornering.

The low look is just that - a look. It does nothing good for it.
