cutting springs are for civics.

Lowering the bike is for comfort. I know it takes from the handling and all, don't get me wrong, I love the stock rideability and cornerbility of it but when I get to a light I tend to feel iffffy on balance and also don't want to be supporting the bike on toes, it don't feel safe

I end up doing it myself. Bought some tools from sally world and lowered it. Yes it handles a LOT better stock height but feels too high for me.

Well I went down on monday so trying to Piece parts together to get her back up. Mostly cosmetic damages and cracked upper triple tree :ouch; not too bad, not a stain on me either. Thanks for your late offerring tho )
