Ok guys...need some help here. Anyone have the ability to reshape this to make it closer to the grip? We got the lowering links on...this is the last adjustment we need!

Not a hard feat but I would be afraid of really weakening it either with heat or just bending it without heat. Its not really a stressed part that you might snap it with your hand strength but. I would try it but my facilities are untested and home made.

A arbor press with some heavy pieces of metal and some light heat might be the way to go. Strip the paint off and then just get it powder coated when done.

How much is just the lever?

Since I have only been here for the last 21 years, I never knew about this referendum.
The residents of South Jersey in the counties of Cape May, Cumberland, Salem, Atlantic, Camden, Gloucester, and Burlington have had a long resentment toward North Jersey under the opinion that they are being slighted and ignored by the state government, which is heavily weighted toward North Jersey. As recently as 1980, a non-binding referendum proposing secession from North Jersey was passed by these counties. It was also voted on in Ocean County, but did not pass in Ocean County.
This explains a lot of what goes on with the state TOR

a happy ending...

So, Thursday afternoon, my kid has a soccer game. Tough game, and in the middle of it, it starts to pour. Sitting in the stands, the wife and I try and stay dry under an umbrella, but no matter how much we squirm, the water runs along the seat and into our bottoms. More squirming. The game is difficult, because of the standing water on the turf field, the wet ball, etc. But finally, in overtime, the son's team beats Cranford. Whew!

Get home, and start to take off the wet clothing. NO WALLET! Shit! Must have wiggled out of the back pocket with the squirming at the game. But did it fall out there, or fall out on the way home on the Garden State Parkway (was on the old reliable Yellow Pig)?

Borrow the wife's car, and head back to the field in Cranford, not knowing if it would now be locked up. Get there, and luckily, the football team is now practicing under the lights.

With a camping light on my head, I start crawling under the stands in the mud. And guess what I find?

Nice pictures! I was planning on going but my friend who lives by the track couldn't make it so I bailed. Inhale some nitro for me.

I personally like Pazzo's. Pricey, but they work well, are adjustable, and better than stock for not breaking in accidents. You can also two finger brake with them easier due to their design.

First I had silver ones, and then changed for gold when I changed bike around.





No close up of gold, but you get the idea:

+1 on the Pazzos

I had/have a pair on my 900 and love them. Big range of adjustment on them, though luckily they were never tested in a crash. I like the 'shorty' version. Two finger braking/ clutch is, well.... clutch.
I could always try to heat and bend the stocker, but I would not be able to vouch for the strength, or the outcome.
Good luck

I thought Milestones were when the first digit of the odometer changed.
