Latest Mod! Lowering Links/Bones

Thanks to Moto-Suzi, aka George for his help and using his garage, tools and lift! Appreciate it!

Pics of course!

Bike up on the lift, undressing her to get to the links



Most of it apart, 2.5" links/bones installed





Finished, on the ground, with George sitting in the seat





All in all, this is exactly how I wanted the rear to be sitting in the first place!

Now, how do I adjust the kickstand to lean a bit more? I noticed when I got home that with the kickstand down the bike is pretty upright.

Question

Sorry to dig up an older thread, but I was reading this and wanted to ask a few questions:

1. Where did you get the Radiantz LED Tail light board, rear clear red LED turn signals and front clear amber LED turn signals? I definitely want the tail light LED board, and probably the turn signals as well. Also, someone else posted about the lenses, and said they got smoked ones; from where?

2. What kind of rear seat backrest was that? The one that came on my 2006 C50 is very short, and I really like the one that was on your bike. I'd be interested in buying it used if you haven't already sold it.

3. Where did you get that mustang seat from? I want to keep mine a 2-seater (chicks on the beach!), and I've been looking at replacement seats (mine came with the C50T studded seats installed.)

4. I keep seeing people post about risers (usually the 2" ones); so they move the handlebars back and toward the rider? Is that correct? That would be great for me since I have lower back problems.

Thanks!

I got all of the above from ChromeGlow, LED Tail light board and Clear LED Turn Signals and you can choose which color output you would like.

The rear seat backrest is the OEM backrest for a 2008 C50. But unfortunately I am not parting with it at the moment.

The Mustang seat I actually got quite lucky and found it on one of my local craigslist ads for a great price.

Yes, the 2" riser spacers bring the handlebars back and towards the rider more. Before installing them, my arms were basically straight from reaching. Now with the spacers, I have a slight bend in my arm and it is a lot more comfortable than before.

Any other questions, feel free to ask!

Thanks! Also as stated above, not selling any of my accessories at the moment. You never know when you might need it for a long trip!
