FORGET ALL THIS
I TOUGH IT WAS THE FOOTPEG LOWERING KIT ...
Did mine about a month ago
I did found small differences, but it's in favor of the lowering kit
My understanting is that since I'm less cramped on the bike, I can move more easilly to do some manouvers
It's easier to move my leg to reach the shifter/brake, easier to stand on the peg to balance my weight when passing over a portion of the road that is in bad condition
And if you consider that you have lowered your center of gravity about an inch and a half, you should be able to do better steering on less than perfect road when standing up on the peg
And if you are worry about brushing the peg on the road when cornering, well, I only have about less than 3/8 inch on each side of the rear tire that hasn't being rubbed and I haven't brushed them so far, so their's headroom left
I almost think that the bike should come standart with the speedy kit, since it doesn't altered the distance from seat to floor ...
My 2 cents
Let us know what you end up doing and your comment about it !
