    You have to enlarge front hoses

    and give shorter "bone" parts on the rear suspension - 122-125 mm (original is 140 mm)

    Ofcourse it is necessary to enlarge side and central stands.

    Offroad solo riding to Andorra, from Tor, in Lleida province. The track was used long ago by smugglers who introduced alcohol, tobacco and other goods coming from Andorra, avoiding and escaping from Guardia Civil customs control.

    As I did it loaded, and with a computer in the baggage, I didn't throttle too much....:rofl:rofl:rofl:rofl
