I measured what I have on my Aero, and it looks like 7" total rise from the top of the triple-tree. Tape measure makes me think 14" total would be about right. I'm thinking 2" in the risers, and 12"...

We also discovered that along the way someone ran a SAE bolt into a metric hole. This had left the shifter cocked at an angle, and a sloppy fit to the bracket.

My buddy chased the threads out,...

I have a bike mechanic coming over to help with this. He says a half hour tops. I guess we'll spend 5 minutes re-threading the rod, and 25 minutes fiddling with the cover.

I have over 23k on my 07 Aero. Sometme between now and mid July a KN-204 and Rotella 15w-40 is going in. Wish they made a 20w-50 for summer running in the Valley of the Sun.

Summer Gas in the Valley of the Sun

Summer gas is back, and my mileage jumped from around 53 to 58 mpg. If we can't have 100% gas, at least keep the winter gas away. It doesn't get that cold here anyway.
