I must be the only guy that the stock shield works for,Im 6 ft even and the wind from the shield,and the bugs,just barely goes over my helmet/helmet shield. No buffeting to speak of.
The stock seat constantly squashed my gourds,quite the misery on a long ride.
I had Corbin make me a seat that has a level seating position,no sliding back or forward unless I want to,somehow it worked right off the bat. Im only 185lbs so the stock suspension hasnt been an issue,I know the shock will wear out sooner then later but its fine as is.
Dont need more power or noise so the stock exhaust is fine for me.
I bottomed the shock once while wheelieing down a short steep hill and hit a funny shaped bump,I dont think these bikes are designed to ride like dirt bikes so I gave it that one.
Really,I like it like it is,and that's rare for me.
Its comfy,goes fast enough,and corners like stink for a big bike.
