had a few days off got:
-a set of 11" springs.
-cut off the factory license plate bracket and mounted a motorcycle mods mounting kit.
-custom cut my inspection tag to side mount.
-installed jdubs fowards. love em but still need some help getting the pedals set right i have to stretch my foot way back for the brake. any help would be great pm if you have em.

next week ill have the kury bezels on the front with smoke lenses and a clear alternative integrated led turn signal in the rear that has the turn signals built in with a smoke lens. been fun! tell me what you think

Chall1525,
Your bike looks nice. I took my inspection plate off and put the sticker on the inside of the left cover. Not legal but never been hassled about it. I also had Hick chrome my JDUBS as well as my stock brackets.

Yes its my stock pedal. You have to bend the brake pedal after installing the JDUBS. I did mine while on the bike. Wrapped the stem with a towel as not to mark up the chrome. Used a pipe wrench and bent it a little at a time until it was right. Some guys take it off but its pretty easy to do on the bike.

spark, your bike would look better with Accutronics and my bike would look better with your chrome JDUBs (hint, hint) :mrgreen:

You know its funny you say that. I have been going back and forth on getting some and probably will end up with them. However, I will get them after I lower the rear with the 11.5 Progressives. Then a 6 degree rake and finally a foots mod with a 200.

Of course all of that is subject to change at any minute. If someone offered me the right price you never know what might happen.
