New Strom, many questions
I've been lurking here for a year or so after considering a 650 v-strom. All of my previous rides, with the exception of 60s bikes, have all been shaft driven tourers. I knew this bike would be different from what I am used to, but the drive home from the dealership raised a couple of concerns. I'm 5'7" with a 30" inseam, I could tiptoe or ball of feet at lights, no problem once underway, wrist got a little tired on the way back, used to cruise control. First things I'd like to do are maybe the lowering links (I've read most of the +'s and -'s), and I'd like to get a centerstand. The dealer says you can't do both. I've read here that you can. If it can be done, are there certain brands that will work, while others won't. Also, I've read about raising the fork tubes in the triple tree and how that might affect the side stand. All the other farkles, as you folks call them, will come later. My current ride, besides the new strom, is a Kawasaki Voyager. It's getting heavier or I'm getting older, most likely the latter.
