Hi bitmonx,
yep mods done was relatively easy when removing best be careful as you need a fair bit of weight down on ratchet to stop it flying off..best wrap a towel or something soft around bars so you donít slip and damage them

How did you cut the spacer? With a tube cutter or by hand?
How is the ride?

If you are on the fence about this mod, don't be. It transforms the bike. Do it.

Cool, can't wait doing the mod. It is the one that is top of the list with second one changing the final drive to 30T / 70T.
Frigging Winter here in Switzerland. Roads are snowy/wet/slushy and when dry contaminated with salt......
I am unable to do much work at home since I got no private garage, just an underground garage shared by dozens of other people and no electrical outlets.....

Enjoy the ride!!
