before: pulled the shock so I could get full bump

well I lived, was pretty hot but I drank a lot of water. Got the rear shocks on the bench and swapped the shims and took out the bleed screws. should handle the slower speed bumps etc much better now. Just need to get them charged after work tomorrow. I'm also picking up a set of pretty much new 5-point belts, so hopefully I can get my *** in gear on throwing some seat mounts and belt hoop in.

Also worked on the Pass. side front inner fender clearance. Looks like I dont need to cut near as much, just some out of the front under where the stock air box would be. The Pass. side fender must be higher cause its doesnt even touch at full bump in the middle like the drivers side did. It clears by and inch But I like the smooth rolled fender that is there so I'm not touching it. which in turn means I can leave the coolant rez. pretty much where its at.

You should box the frame too. I know having the bed-cage gives it more stability, but boxing can't hurt at all!

BTW... Truk nao lewx gud!

Love the kit, handles everything I've thrown at it.

Yeah I plan to box the frame and add more tube also. Would like to do fuel cell next as well.

still together. rear end cycles much better after the rebuild. the front I think needs some work. its a bit too soft. might need to bump up my comp. so It doesnt bottom out so easy off big hits

just a little video mainly for checking out how my front and rear cycle. not any huge hucks or anything just enough to get an idea. I think my rear end is working good now, but I think my front end needs some more compression, pre-load or a heavier spring etc
