    I might have chance to change the standard 220mm 05 suspension for a full 265mm S suspension.

    I figure the brake line will need replacing, anything else?

    speedo cable?

    Speedo cable should be plenty long enough.

    If you swap with another bike maybe change the entire front brake assembly, think it can be unbolted as is and swap all of it master cylinder and calipers.

    But changing brake fluid might be good to do at some point also so maybe keeping your own trusted stoppers is better and just swap hoses.

    Stands, both side and center are different.

    I changed from standard to s

    Brake lines were fine

    I changed my kickstand and center stand

    Cj makes a kickstand that you twist to make longer.

    Same here........ I just change the stands. I went with stands from a 990R which are taller than S height stands. Like the side stand a lot the bike does not lean way over. The Center stand is so tall it's hard to get the bike up on it.. no big deal.... I'm strong. :evil

    I'm running ROX risers and different bars I found the brake line too short
    when I changed to the 265 travel.
