Ok, so I didn't do it. Had somebody else. I was not going to buy an impact wrench just for this project. And I couldn't find anybody that had them anyway.

You would not believe the difference these things make! They are 1" or so lower and rotated foward. It almost feels like a real sport bike. Corners feel tighter, like you're down in it not perched on top of the bike. I'll post pics of them later. Need a battery for my camera.

Next is rearsets.

CLIP-Ons

So what bike are you doing this to? I thank you for telling me about the site, by the way. I will too be going to the clip-ons and rearsets...considering the cost and keeping you more streamilind in teh aerodynamic flow of the fairing and windscreen, it will increase performance through the loss or drag. Setting upright in the windstream causes loss of fuel economy and cost more for fuel because of the power it has to use to over come this disruption. I'd still like to see something Ducatti like to tuck your body into keeping more of you out of the airstream....one thing at a time...

Woodcraft has an awesome set of clipons, and the rearsets....May just to have them colored to match my bike using the www.por15.com awesome!
I actually like the polished aluminum look they have to them, but it all depends on what your tastes are.

TORQUE or IMPACT?

I hope you meant Torque Wrench...and You definately need a good one if you are going to do any work on your bike. It's rare to find anyone that doesn't overtighten a sparkplug in a head...that's right a steel sparkplug in an aluminum head and you can definately ruin someones day in a heartbeat..a flick of a wrist. Don't be tight when it omes to this tool...buy a good one and take real god care of it.

Arghhhh!

I hate cramped quarters...Don't be tight when it comes to buying a good tool...this one is very important and don't lend it to anyone that you don't trust to use it properly...

I don't believe these are woodcraft, I think they are vortex (sp?). only a few companies make them for 37mm forks. woodcraft would be nicer, but for 110 bucks less I'll take what I can get.

no connection, guy doesn't seem to have any more of them.

By the time I get home every night it's dark. If I get out early enough I'll snap some.

Glad you've had time to get pictures.

They are much better aren't they? Feels more like you're in the bike than riding around on top of it. If that makes any sense to the rest of you...

it feels a 100x better, when I tuck into the bike it feels just perfect. it also forces me to sit farther back in the seat, so hopefully no more 'nut-crunchers' from the stock seat.
