Put a .750 spacer between your upper frame shock mounts, and your rear shocks, both sides, you will need longer bolts, half- 13 bolts, and locking nut. You will be happy with how better handling is. I did this when I bought the bike 31000 miles ago. Ps I used stainless steel half-13 bolts.

Mark....this is the first time I've heard of this change. In what way is the handling better. The stock setup has the shocks leaning in at the top and I always thought this triangulation would give a more stable ride. Please explain further.....Joe
PS. What length bolt is needed?

Joe, the bike is more stable ,and turning the bike at slow speeds just feels much better. bolt is 2.5 or3. inches long. :D
