Looking great, Adhara! One question; what seat are you using? It looks a lot like a Ducati Monster seat, but the front of the seat where it meets the tank looks different from what I remember on my old '97 monster. Please let me know, because I love your seat! :clap:

Thank you Arnehulstein, kscountryboy and Webman94 for the compliments.

The seat was custom made, inspired by the ducati monster seat...

You've really dropped the front-end and I think I see an FZ6R shock which raises the rear. You've lost a lot of rake. Is the bike twitchy at highway speeds (>50mph)?

Hallo Radare,
I lowered the front shock about 1.75 inch, I also add about 3inch of new spacer inside to add preload and get a sag of about 2cm for my weight(115kg). I also add the viscosity of the fork oil a bit, and also add the quantity too for better damping.
For the rear Shock It was an aftermarket. The spring preload was right, but had to change the oil to much thicker oil.
Bike handles surprisingly sharp and stable at high speed...

I love the current version of your bike, Adhara! Thanks for the information on your suspension modifications, as well.
