Is it worth the trouble?

Been thinking about narrowing the rig a bit. Rides fine as-is, but very stiff around corners. Tracks fine at speed. I'm thinking at most I could bring it in 2". I'd have to trim that much off the clevis tubes as they are in the frame as far as they can go.

I could bring it in more than 2', but I'm not willing to give up the right saddle bag.

Another limiting factor is that I can only take in just so much on this rear angle brace.

Plenty of wiggle room with the front however...

And on the clevis tubes

I'll bring the left side of the hack up a bit in relation to the bike. I have the "hand brake" lever to adjust for load conditions.

I borrowed a HD pipe cutter from work (which I've used before with much success before), so the biggest hassle will be getting everything back together. Again, not 100% committed at this point, but would appreciate any constructive input from the forum. Thanks
