When you "lower" the front end like you do you change the rake and trail of your bike. Trail directly affects your stability and handling. A lot of trail, and the bike will be super stable in a straight line but hard to turn, a little trail and the bike will fall into the turns but will wobble at high speeds in a straight line and while decelerating. If you have too little or negative trail your front end will want to tuck under you and the bike will pitch you off. The thing about bikes also is that these things change as you lean the bike over. Since you haven't run the numbers there is a possibility you have too little trail and you haven't hit the circumstance where you need the trail you don't have.Why is everyone so concerned about my lowering the bike 2.5 inches in the front . Get over it! It rides fine.
Your ignorance of motorcycle frame and suspension geometry is only matched by the complete hilarity of your bravado.This site just seems to be full of hatin trowls ! Lol why u so mad that my front end is dropped ? Cuz u haven't dropped yours lol dayum ! This ain't a cruiser no more I'm in 2nd doing 40 @ probably 6 or 7k rpm and 3rd gear lol 70+ in a mid range rpm....btw I'm going to do a gsxr front end soon...to much power for those little 37mm forks
oh yeah? have you looked into that yet because I am pretty sure the shaft drive interchangeability of that bike with one that has an 18" rear is almost nil. I've never seen someone pull off an 18" wheel swap on one of those without converting to chain or machining an adapter for the rear wheel....but please tell me all about this planned 18" wheel swap.plus a 18 front and back gonna run 120 18 and 160 18 rear !!!
Oh yeah? who? what fine upstanding member of the Brooklyn motorcycle community told you that wreck was remotely safe?540nova let's see what u ride post a pic ! And it's been looked over by a professional thanks anyway
What are you going to use for a hub? the stock one and conversion plates? yeah good luck with that.When I get it done I'll post it. Yes keep hating I love it ��.... There gonna be spoke rims. 18 x3.5, 18x 4.5 to be specific . And that front end swap coming soon! Gsxr 1000 front end im still waiting to see Mr Nova's ride?? Still googling for pics?
You're a touchy fucker, ain't ya?Andy u cocksucker if I have 2 much slack and u want me to raise the front end 2.5 inches that would just give me more slack u dumb fuck ..I eat funny motherfuckers like u for breakfast man ! Stay off the thread u cum slut
