    i dont see why they wouldnt be strong enough, i mean they're designed to get the shit beat out of them, and only use one. if youve got two on your bike i would think itd be stronger than somethin like sporty shocks.

    yeah if i get shorter shocks, i might go for some of those. they are only sold individually (beacuse they're supposed to be mono) but even so, the price for 2 is still way cheaper than a set of real motorcycle shocks.

    but i was thinking about extending the swingarm, so i would have more room to work with all the junk under the seat. And that would make my bike sit lower also. I dunno, I just need to make up my mind and commit to one thing and just go for it.

    Oh you got it. But like I said in my first post. This is going to be a long and slow build for me. Between work and school and trying to skate and learning my bike as a go. Hopefully I can do certain things to it and still be riding it as I go along. We'll see though.

    But untill my next bike update, this should keep you guys entertained. http://www.peopleofwalmart.com

    Not a huge update, but there was some progress over the last day or so.



    If you can see that big gaping hole in the middle of my bike, then you'll see I finally got rid of that huge, gross air box finnally. Scored me some of these....



    Air Pods!

    Now I just need to get my swing arm extended. Having trouble with that because all the shops in my area do not do any type of frame mods unless its a ground up build from scratch. "Liability" fuckkkk. Got hit up one more shop that my boss knows so well see how that goes.

    TCbros does not make a hardtail kit FOR the kz650. BUT they make a Universal Hardtail kit, and its only $125.

    I have not found anyone, or had time to check anywhere else. My boss has a buddy in the city that has a shop and so I might try there when I get the time.

    Default what about something like this?

    Here is my strut setup for my kz400 that I just did. Before I had basically chopped it in the same spot that all you guys did.

    what it looked like....


    The work....



    Finished look....


    This was the way I went with it I am sure that there are others. I just didn't want to hardtail it cause you always see hardtails not that I don't love them cause I do! Just wanted to go a different route.

    Hope this helps
