hey man nice clean ride. What springs are in it? it looks like you have heaps of ground clearence so it shouldn't scrape the exhaust. Just go nice and slow over everything.

so there Kings springs atm, measure your eyebrow height and let me know. i know what mine are, and that you can go 270-280 legal in the bum ;)

mine's about 220mm atm and the cop tell me it's illegal and i can't have it like that :cry:

South Australia mate, we have both.
-100mm
-eyebrow height (centre of the wheel to the body/gaurd)

basicly we get double screwed, even if i keep my 100mm my eyebrow is up to 30mm to low depending on my springs at the time. And i need an engineer to chage my eyebrow only if it's safe and i can keep the 100mm.

Check the pic i put up in my thread for u.
