Good to hear, got any pointers? Are any special tools needed to take the triple clamps apart? Where did you source your parts? Does the center stand still work?

Any change to the ground clearance will require modifying the center and side stand.

The modification is easy, and can be done by a local welder. The key is measuring the exact change in ground clearance, so you will need a precise before and after measurement.

The key is to remember to get that before measurement.

Makes sense, thanks. One could almost just weld a couple steel pads to the bottoms of the existing center stand pads thick enough to make up the difference. It would add some weight but that's not a top priority here.

Depending on how much weight you add to the end of it, it may be a problem. You're going to be adding weight on the end of a lever. You may not add enough to make it move statically, but there could be enough weight to move it once the suspension starts working.

This is an extreme situation, but depending on how much extension you need it may be a valid concern.

RSL's idea is probably the right one. Have it extended properly, or just remove it. Adding plates to the bottom might add too much weight and overpower the centerstand springs.

Well I bought it. $5500.

The clutch on this thing is a lot worse (grabbier) than mine on take-off. And it feels like it has no spring back, does the cable need lubed periodically? No slipping but man it does not like starts.

The extra ride height is nice and this thing is WAY stiffer but does take some getting used to. After 3 hours of riding I cannot find my confidence like I have on the HM... but it will come.

Race mode also feels a lot faster... then again I am at such lower altitude than in CO.

Replaced the o2 sensors, the clutch feels a lot better. I guess it was throttle response that was the issue.

That rear heat shield is not fun to remove/replace on the bike.

Sweet deal. My experience with the SP is that you'll never really feel comfortable on it, but when ridden hard it really comes into it's own and has seemingly endless capabilities. Grip, ground clearance for days. The stiff suspension performs very well under hard riding.

Why did you replace 02 sensors? And where did you get them, how much were they

I've bought o2 sensors from Polaris for $110 each at the local dealer. Absolutely identical to the Ducati o2 sensor in every way, and under half the cost.

Here's an amazon link, this fits the front and rear cylinder. If you don't believe me, cross reference both part numbers back to the same bosch sensor. https://www.amazon.com/Polaris-Gener.../dp/B01A06BQNS
