Stiffer spring, rising links, taller 150 rear tire and raised over 1"/widen 3" the factory seat....now I'm flat footed. Helps when you have 36" inseam.

Raising links and a Cogent rear shock with another 1 1/2" travel. Really helps the bucking beast handle much nicer. Seat height is now just over 37".

I'm 6' and have raising links on mine. Stiffens it up, adds some clearance, turns a little quicker and puts the seat height back where it was after adding the Seat Concepts stepped seat.

True true...... I'm 6' 6" with a 36" inseam.. WIth the bike as stock i can put my feet flat on the ground with knees slightly bent, so I'll take the extra lift from the links!
