Nice times! My best so far is a [email protected] spraying. You've got me by 1.5hp motor, and I've only got about 5" extension. Sening it off after this season for a 10".....got bolt on extensions now. Seeing that you are running +2 rear, I guess I need to reorder, I ordered a 44t rear yesterday. I'm -1 front. My buddy on his is -2 front and +1 rear. He's running 6.30's motor and 6.15+ on progressive spray with 9" extension, and both of us are lowered all the way.
Measure your clearance without the front strapped and the bike siting up...I have 3-1/4" clearance at the rear of the bottom of the lowers close to the rear tire. What is yours? I'm sure our kickstands are cut different, thats why I ask to measure while its straight up. What is it with the front strapped. Mine is still in the trailer so I should be able to measure my front by looking at the rings marks on the forks when I have it lowered. Looks like we have the same trailer.....04 Haulmark Trnspt Dlx 6X12 side door and rear ramp. Thanks
