Thanks :) Rearsets are from LSL. If I'd have to choose again, I'd go for chainsikle reverse pattern... (I have their reverse pattern shifter peg anyway.)

Reason I chose LSL was the left side mounting bracket:

Thanks I'm trying to make it joy to ride and keep the looks close to stock... When using aftermarket parts, I like to go for the proven classics like s&s air cleaner and supertrapp exhaust. Ohlins are exception to the rule since I really dig their stuff.

I keep seeing bikes like this, and I'll have pull the batwing off and scrounge some lower bars. My first thought when I considered a Sportster was to cafe it.....

I much prefer the feel of mine since I put the mids on it. Just got my new Sick Saddles solo seat installed this weekend too. Much better than stock!



Have all the parts I need for the phase 1 suspension upgrades now. Just need time to get it all installed and sorted...

Longer, Roadster length shocks for the rear (until I can afford to upgrade to Ohlins). Pulled the springs and powder coated them black this weekend. Longer Roadster damper rods, and Ricor Intiminators for the forks...



Continue to be pleased with the front brake upgrade that I posted about earlier as well...

I'd read about that upgrade. Gonna have to do that one. Way simpler then adding a caliper. Digging the bare bones look. Tried my bike without the batwing this weekend. Liked the feel. Just felt lighter. Bags may need to be stored also. Need to get some Nightster or standard bars to replace my low buckhorns......

Might want to take a look around over on xlforum to see how it will work on your bike. I know it works great with the 48's wheels, but I've read that it does present clearance issues with the wheels on some models. If it works on your bike it is definitely a worthwhile mod. While the brakes on my 48 may not rival those on some of my other bikes, I don't feel like the brakes are underpowered anymore. Much more confidence inspiring!
