Well, I ordered the 7/8" Kouba links, they should be here sometime next week. I am looking forward to the install (sort of), I think I am going to start with just 1/4" raising of the forks (or lowering of the frame...however you look at it) and see how she does with that! I also ordered a front and rear set of the mcenterprises guards, and will tackle that install next week as well!
