Thanks guys!

Also, I don't recommend parking that close to the water on a regular basis. . .

Yeah, it's actually sketchier than it looks too. . . I should probably shorten the kickstand since the cbr forks are shorter. It doesn't lean over as far as it used to. It's also probably 4 feet or so down to the water. . .

Florida probably isn't a great place to judge handling, but it seems like it's a bit more, willing to change direction (?) at lower speeds. It sucks for parking lot manuvering with the decrease in lock to lock rotation. The brakes and fork rigidity are worlds better. The stock forks always made me wonder how people did stoppies, they felt unstable to me (the forks, never done a stoppie), but that may have been the poor condition of the stock brakes as well.

I'm not sure what the weight is, I'll try to get it on our shipping scale here at work, but I don't imagine it's really that much lighter. It's basically just plastic that's missing.

Oh yeah, switching to the wider rear wheel and a 180 made it feel much more comfortable to lean deep into a corner than the 170 on the narrower rear wheel, which was infinitely better than the 180's egg profile that was shoehorned onto a wheel narrower than it was made for.

Finally snuck it on the shipping scale at work. 456lbs with 1/2 to 2/3 a tank of fuel.
