Ok! Now that I have the Specs. Thanks Glider! I need to know if anyone out there Can tell me if they make fork downtube extentions for my model? Those of you familier with the XLS will know they come with a cartrige shock system (front and rear). I've come to believe that this may be the problem as everywhere I look for downtubes, they exclude the 1200 S. I'd like to raise the front a couple of inches. If I can't extend these forks, what size springer should I use? Thanks and "keep the rubber side down!"
