      Well shoot mcmaster-carr doesnt play around!
      I ordered the shims yesterday and they are already here today!
      I thought there had to be some kind of a glitch when the site said "delivers monday" but I guess not
      I will be installing it on my day off this week, the anticipation is killing me!!

        Well I got everything Installed, and gosh dang what a difference!
        I tried as hard as I could to get the frame or exhaust to scrape on my way to work and it couldn't!
        most of the corners I would usually take it easy on where no math for the power of the roadwing!
        I got the shock for $185
        rap from the an400 $25
        hardware $25
        ss7-5w suspension fluid $7
        so basically about $242 and a few hours of time

        the hardest part to me was positioning the dang hydraulic line in the right spot, just took a lot of fiddling with

        I accidentally had the rap turned in when I loosened the banjo bolt as i adjusted the angle of the line on the shock so I guess the line got a good bleeding

        In the future I would like to put the progressive spring on there but for now it will work

        I ended up taking apart my shadow 750 engine also, almost down to just the crankcase
        I'm trying to find what the horrid tapping sound was but no luck yet
        The front cylinder seemed fine, valves looked alright, crank bearing seemed ok, no excessive play
        hopefully when I get around to taking the rear jug off I will find something not too crazy that needs to be fixed

          OJ, you don't mess around, do you. You get right on it and get it done. Enjoy your Roadwing. Ride safe. Be safe.
          I will not apologize for being white, being straight or for loving this country.

              well I went and did it again
              bit off more than I could chew
              A friend of mine has a kz1000 and wasn't using the fairing so......




              Then plan is to get it all cleaned up, make a bracket for the mounts, then get everything painted
