New, better springs up front, or spacers (the cheaper way that I did it) will keep the front end from sagging, which to me was as good as raising the front end. It definitely made a difference in that aspect because now with my center stand down both tires nearly touch the ground. My only worry about changing dogbones is that my center stand will be useless, but if I finally get some front and rear stands it won't matter.Frog said:That's great news ;D
What are the difference between 1st and 2nd gen dogbones ?
I'm referring to their shape here..
Bonus questions :
Does raising the rear add much more weight on your wrists by tilting the rider more forward/more inclined ?
-If so, would adding 1½ inches risers overcome this ?
I've got to sit more upright or else my wrists fatigue way faster than my butt. :-\
Got a price in mind, or still in the development stages?FOG said:A little spam Here,
I have a design and have built prototypes for a set of Dogbones to raise the rear of the older bikes. Please contact me at my personal Email for more info.
Yes I'm just trying to help not make any money. I ran a CNC Machine Shop of my own for 20 years and I know how to cost things. In a legitimate shop today the mfg. cost would be $95.00 a set, at 6 or so sets in a batch. Add 100% distributors mark up and you can see that the market is fast disappearing.Nick D said:For the work involved and the fact that nobody else is making them for 1st gens I'd call that a steal.
