Not quite finished yet. Need to wrap the headers in header wrap (sounds pretty good with the 1 3/4” strightpipes). Tail came out better than expected... it’s just a welded aluminum piece. None of the stock fender holder/peices were cut or used. It’s just a drop in piece. Lowered 1.5 in the front. Was planing on finishing it by doing some mini apes like 6” or 7” bars. Nothing to crazy. Let me know what you guys think.

Ps: still have to machine a small bracket for the rear of the seat where it bolts to the bike, since that is part of the old fender assembly (holds the ignition control module as well)

Without upgrading the front suspension I would not have lowered the bike. It is a super soft suspension, I could see it easily causing issues. From the pictures it looks like the front fender is going to smash into the radiator.

Yea I took that into account. Been riding for a few weeks now with no issues so far. Florida is nice and flat with some pretty decent roads. Also I weigh like 120 lbs soaking wet so that helps the suspension not travel so far. Otherwise yes I agree with you... I wouldn’t recommend lowering it unless your in my situation.
