    Front swap

    Has anyone swapped out the front forks and used the ohlins from a Ducati? Curious if I had a set of trees made for it if there would be any issues. Length, spring rate because of the bikes weight difference. Love the look of an inverted front end and the gold look from Ducati

    Mods required for exhaust swap?

    Hey there! I was out at our dealership the other day and I got to hear the vmax with one of the first UFO pipes they made, its was a 4 into 1. And my god, that sound. Obnoxiously loud, but terrifyingly fierce. This lead me on a hunt to find a 4-1 exhaust system and I came up with the Brock one...

    Swap airbox lids?

    Anyone want to swap a stock airbox lid for a Muscle Jet Kit lid? Still in the process of putting stuff back to stock. Let me know. If we ship at the same time, it shouldn't be more than two days without a lid.

    back tire washer swap

    I'm mounting my new 170/80/15 rear tire on Tuesday and was looking at fire-medics write up on the washer swap that I keep hearing about. Hopefully, my Commander II won't need it but is it better to just go ahead and do it or wait and see if it's needed? It seems that putting the washer inside...
