Hudson, I'm debating about powder coating my heat shields? Did you use high temp powder coat, or the standard 400 degree pc?

I really like the pipes on your bike. That's a sweet look how they flow into one.

How long are your rear shocks?

12.5 inches as near as I can tell. I am convinced she has been raised as she can surprise sports bikes in the corners :+)

They look taller than that. I have 12.5" Progressives on my 1300, but your rear fender looks much higher than with the stock shocks on. Next time you have them off, measure from center-to-center on the shock eyes.

The weight of the bike in the back will compress them some when measuring them on the bike, but not that much. I was thinking like 13" or 13.5" uncompressed.
