Question(s);
Did Wilbers also adjusted the front suspension ?
What did you do with the levers ?

Update: We installed the Puig adjustable levers from Revzilla. Requires a clutch and brake adapter. Look and work great. Fits her hands much better. Hats off to Puig for bringing a solution to market first.

The last item to address is to shorten the kickstand 1.5 inches as the bike is a little more upright when the stock kickstand is down than we would like.

Just looking through the thread, I didnít respond to the Wilberís suspension question.

The Wilberís suspension kit replaces the rear shock and front fork springs to keep the geometry stock.

She took it out for a spin yesterday with all of the mods and the ergonomics feel as good as her Triumph Street Twin. High bar.

Thanx for your reply.
Hope your wife is happy now.

My wife is al little bit taller (153 cm) and she can not ride my Beamer (thank God !)
She used to ride motorcycles when she was younger.
Her first was a MotoGuzzi 254 (a 250 cc four stroke four cilinder with the revs going up to 12.000 rpm with a wonderful sound),followed by a Suzuki 185 dirt bike (2 stroke) and a Kawasaki 250 (1 cilinder four stroke)
Going out with the Ďbig boysí was not really a lot of fun because our cruising speed was her max speed and that became very tiring.
At one point she decided riding in the back was better
