    You forgot to purchase the hole needed in your clutch cover for the kick start shaft to go through. That's okay, I'm sure a ball peen hammer can do the trick.

    No worries... I'm pretty sure a 12 gauge slug will work like a charm. May need some slight filing afterward though :lol3

    That is the under $100 ones that ol boy on eBay sells. I did not want to run the larger front wheel or deal with 4 inches of fork tube coming up through my triples. They went on perfect and for under 100 bones and no installation headaches can't be beat.

    Thank You!!! Seriously you have no idea how hard I have searched for those. My Ebay foo must be pretty weak. Any idea what weight they are sprung for?

    Just by pressing on them so far I am guessing they are sprung for the average persons weight of the location of their manufacture. Ummmmmm 70 lbs? :rofl

    Yeah Im sure the fork weight could be swapped out for something heavier or put some stiff springs in there. This is just going to be used for around town and light dual sport stuff so Im not sweating it too bad. Cant be any worse than the factory forks.
