I would like to note that I am not riding this bike up and down the freeway or anything like that. I am in school and about to start college, so for now it will simply be to ride up the road to my school. After that, I will likely sell it. This bike was intended more so to get some experience with bikes, and then sell it in the future.

    Also, I am still not 100% sure I will even do this to the bike for the exact reasons you mentioned. I am simply wondering how it is done.
    K, now I'm starting to get it, you are anxious to experience what it is like to grind metal parts when you go around corners and you have no intention of keeping the thing once you butcher it, you are going to flog it off on some poor sod who will probably die riding it.

    Yes, don't do it unless you are totally retarded

    ... you could take one of the 2 fork springs out and go for a ride, that will give you an idea of what it is like to ride a CB350 with a completely bagged out front suspension, then you can put it back to normal afterwards if you survive.

    Is it the upcoming snow storm that's got ya so cheerful this mornin Trials? If I was in college I'd buy a bike that can ride two up comfortably. Guys got to get his priorities straight. Girls drinks education.

    it's only 10 below freezing and snowing here at the moment. My tractor is frozen up solid and I had to move my MV Agusta into the freezing cold garage yesterday. but I'm feeling better now that I had my breakfast. Apologies to the OP if I pissed on his parade.

    ... at least now he knows we take this motorcycle thing pretty serious.

    And the first comment was how doing that would "complete the look." He'll be happy over there.There's no need to tell him anymore how wrong it is. He posted at HT that he'd been here and told how stupid it was by 10 people and his first thought was to go somewhere else to get the validation he's seeking.

    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.

    This is easy.

    Step 1: Remove the front fender to get more lowering capability.

    Step 2: Drop the forks up the triple trees (if possible) until you like the "stance."

    Step 3: Relocate the headlight 2-3 inches lower

    Step 4: Remove the gauges

    Step 5: Remove the sidestand. You won't need it and it will be useless anyway.

    Step 6: grow a beard and and head to the nearest starbicks. Bring a brick so you can lean the frame on it.


    I should have a wedsite...
