Your welcome.

The main measurement I was interested in was the rake. I didn't have any control over the trail, without big changes, it is what it is. The rake is between 25 & 26 degrees.

I had modified (grinder) the previous footpeg mounts to fit the buell pegs, I bought another set of peg mounts with pegs for $16, added the vario MSW adjustable pegs and all seems ok, just stay away from the big air. I haven't modified the peg mounts as I now have them holding my luggage and muffler.

The bike retains a lot of it's sportbike handling, I'm currently on a multiweek trip, just rode the Cherohala and Dragon. Damn close to sportbike performance (sans luggage) with the Shinko 700s.
