My 07 EG to RG Build
Yea, the old saying "Once You Go Shark, You Never Go Back" holds true. When I get a chance, i'll post some of the old build pictures, along with pictures of the fender, and wheels as I was machining them. Currently the bike is lowered 2.5" in the rear, with a 180mm x 18 wheel, and lowered 1" in the front with the 21". this combo gives the bike a trail of 7.70", which is about 1.50" worse trail condition than stock. So this winter, it will get stripped to the bare frame, and I will de-rake the head tube, and make a new set of triple trees. I have it drawn up with a total rake of 27 degrees, and a trail of 4.7", as I am going for a better handling setup akin to other sport touring bikes, such as the triumph, etc.. My Son owns a Powder Coating business, so we will be powdering everything this winter, frame, wheels, engine, etc... I also have the brake rotor blanks, and a 68 tooth pulley to machine to match the wheels.
