Don't know about the 4.6 rear, but the 5.1 does raise the bike and changes the rake angle noticeably.

I would suggest against the stock T model.

You're going to want the toolkit and sidecar cover at the minimum, and a spare wheel can't hurt either. Pricewise it's better to go with the Tourist.

The best you can get is MSRP. There isn't any haggling past that point, but don't pay silly freight charges or doc fees.
