My bike came with out a keyed ignition, and the dash doesn't really fit well. Thinking about deleting the dash and putting a key on the side - couple cheap options from lowbrow. Is there any one thing that's better than the others? don't want it to crap out next time I get rained on or something.

I want to replace my shocks with black progressive, how do I know what size to buy to not change my ride height? Brand to look at? I may go to a round swing arm later so I can mount a chopped fender, should I wait till after I do that as round is a little lower I'm told?

Thanks

By ignition I don't mean the starter button I just mean I can't lock the bike from starting currently.

I've run this basic switch on my rigid for over 12 years with no problems, in pissing down rain plenty of times too.

I would wait until you swap swingarms to buy a new set of shocks.

I would also ask around if you are replacing the shocks for ride improvement instead of looks to see if someone else has a setup you might like.

I was thinking about getting that one. I'm guessing I need to buy a mounting bracket of some kind as well?

Yep, buy one or make one. My friend Steve at Guerrilla Fabrication makes some nice ones for cheap.
