    Oh so shiny 2000

    By habit and preference I do tend to go into neutral at stop lights, which necessitates use of both feet to get back in gear and underway. I know most advise against that practice.

    Lowering the 1200?

    Wish I could try one. I'm leery of spending $200 for the try. That said, my bike came to me with a heated Corbin on it which I suspect is quite a bit taller than the OEM low narrow.

    Yeah. Not looking to drop it more than about 1". Center stand would be tougher but doable.

    Hell yes I did. Always do. Any other kind observations?

    Thanks. I'll look into this one. They have used pics for the 1200x but list that bike separately. $255 for link & stand may be a palatable solution.

    Reach to the ground. I can't back it even on level concrete

    I'd like to bring the rear down an inch or so. How can this be done? As an aside, it's going in for the recall shaft replacement within a week or two.

    Well cool news I met up with the seller and bought the OEM seat. On getting home I found that someone had already peeled the rider section and shaved it exactly as I needed, and did a very neat job of it. Saved myself the trouble of buying an electric knife!

    Yeah now that UPS is emphasizing pkg size vs weight it would be very spendy to ship one.

    Going to keep the gang together in case I move it on.

    My boot tips barely touch the ground on this bike. I've got to do something to get a bit lower. I'm unwilling to use a lowering link or invest $$$$$ into a shock set up so that leaves shaving the seat as my option. I don't need to ride this bike more than 1 hr per sitting so comfort isn't paramount. There is a factory seat in nice condition listed locally - $80 is sellers bottom dollar. I could keep it as an unmolested backup in case I decide to move the bike due to fit issue. Grab it, or are these a dime a dozen?

    Hmmm. Interesting observations. If the front has been lowered I won't want to try a max speed run I guess, based on what I've read about high speed stability. I"ll take and post another pic to better show that area. I've no idea how to tell if headers are original ????? Bike is here now. $225 to get it hauled up here in a covered trailer by a guy that hauls bikes in the Western US for a living. Well worth it.

    I don't know how old you are, but knowing when to throw in the towel and not throw good money after bad is a mark of acquired wisdom. Better to cut your losses and recoup your funds invested as best possible now. The first 5th Gen I bought was a roached bike that I suspect had seen many track days in it's 32k miles. Thankfully I was able to sell it (honestly with full disclosure and accepting $100 less than the buyers offer) within 2 weeks for a small loss and 2 weeks later purchased a really nice one. Live and learn.

    If it will lower me to a 20 BMI it was a bargain at twice the price
