bolt on's are like negative poser points... first if you wanna get made fun of for stretching and lowering your giant bike you at least have to do it all the way you can't half it with extensions!

if its for the strip cool, if its for the street, you now have a ridiculous slug to maneuver and on top of that its way overpowered for what its capabilities. sure its cool if you can ever get it in a straight line but dont miss a turn hahahah

Nothing, IF you're going to drag race the bike.

EVERYTHING, if you're doing it for street riding.

You can either strap the front end to lower it or drop the forks through the triple tree. I guess straps are for temporary use while dropping the forks is more long-term. I've always heard that is you wnated a dedicated drop that dropping the forks was superior to straps.

Also contact Doug Ray at Spencer Cycles

www.spencercycle.com

He built my swingarm and they also sell the GOOD adjustable dogbones. He does great work and has a pretty quick turnaround time.

Stay away from the bolt on extentions....especially on a heavy, big power bike like a 14.
