Beans. It's your bike now- do whatever you want. Othrewise, you'll be on pins and needles worrying about it- Your investment. (bleh)

Hasn't come up yet, but many rear fenders start to crack and I think putting a Brit-style tail light on there lightens up the weight that vibrates back there. Also, lower bars are so much more comfortable. You can use 7/8 bars by making shims. I just cut some aluminium tubing for that. If you want shorter cables for appearances, Z-Power (England) is pretty much the way to go on that. I don't think dealers here carry cables (at least the shorter ones).
