A 1600 Drifter is indeed rare.  ;D

  Well I have progressive on the front and rear of the bike and the progressive 465-1148 mono shock was really worth the funds spent.  Not that hard of a swap job really if you are of a mind to do the work yourself. The swapping of the springs up front is easy. Doing a valve adjustment is not hard doing the check is really simple. OH hypercharger I did not do that

yeah...I've been looking at that mod, too. Probably time to change the fork oil anyway.  I am also looking at the progressive rear spring, since I am going to have the whole bike torn down this winter....replacing tires, doing the valve lash, putting on the new hypercharger, etc...

 On the topic sort of, I replaced the original front springs with a set of progressive springs from a 1500 Drifter and then added 1/4" to the spacer provided. This made a huge improvement in the front end. Winter is coming mod time....

From what I understand they  were the same thickness.

Well, we finally had some nice weather again, so I took my 800 with the new batwing fairing out yesterday afternoon for a test run.  I went out on some country back roads to get a good feel on the handling vs. the old windshield.  Several things I noticed, especially at higher speed (60+ mph)

HUGE increase in stability at higher speeds
MUCH LESS wind buffeting to my arms and shoulders....much more comfortable for longer rides
A bit heavier in the front end so compensation is necessary in turns, both slow and high speed...
Less front end "bounce" on un-even road surfaces....probably due to the increase weight over the forks.  Between the fairing, stereo and speakers. the unit weighs about 28 lbs.  That doesn't sound like much, but it is noticeable...

Overall, I am really surprised in the improved ride quality....even though the actual windshield is lower compared to my riding height, I get much less wind-buffeting to my body and head vs the regular style the stereo kicks A$$!  ;D

I am quite happy with the setup...

This winter, I plan on taking it to a local body shop and having it re-painted to fix the issues that occurred when it fell on the floor from the stand I had it on....

The backrest mount is $45.00 US (includes mounting screws/lock nuts).  I will post it in the classifieds as a stand alone item.  you need to purchase your own back rest pad to mount on it (everyone wants something different and I don't want to carry inventory of all the different styles)  i put a Mustang pad on mine....

the mount has about 3" of forward/backward mount it under the top of the rack through the 4  pre-drilled holes .

Answer is between 126,000 and 162,000 Kilometers( with enthusiastic use, but not enough for Police attention)  Good at 126 when I did cams etc - no so good at 162.

Check the pictures. I reckon 1 fistful short of major grief.
