Bought a used 02 roadglide , 37 k , stage 2 with vh fuel pak and pro pipe. I thought the heightened cg to help with ground clearance? Ideas and comments please...

Why? Is there an issue? Mine is the 19/16 and lowered and have no issues with clearance or lean angle.

I haven t touched/ ground / sparked. A little touchy on slow maneuvers with passenger. Thought I would see what the more experienced would say.

Ride the wheels off if it. It's set up just fine. If you were going to upgrade anything start with rear shocks and front internals. That'll help with handling.

Ride, ride, ride. That's the best advice I can give.

Just remember. It's not a sport bike. It's a cruiser.

Absolutely. You will find things you want to change. But seat time will be the best judge of things you want to change.

Practice slow maneuvers in a parking lot alone first. And be sure your passenger knows to sit still in those situations. Bag Guards are always a good idea. If ya tip over you'll scratch a bar. Not a painted bag.
