Raising the V-Strom: Buy raising links in USA & Ship to Colombia or find them there?
Waiting on my March 6th sailing to Cartagena on the Stalratte... chilling out Norm; an awesome guy I met on horizonsunlimited.com who's putting me up at his place just outside of David, Panama.
In any case I'm pretty damn tired of slamming the bottom of the V-Strom on top of topes and rocks on off-road roads. And yes I know the V-Strom isn't the best off road vehicle; it's what I've got. And I do like taking it off pavement as some off-road roads I've done are simply amazing.
I'm thinking about raising up the back end as I'm 6'6" and could flat foot the bike without difficulty. The ones in particular I'm considering are: http://www.soupysperformance.com/cat...00/4618738.htm
Sadly I'm leaving Panama before airbox express can get me this package; so I'm looking at 2-3 weeks for the part to arrive in Colombia plus the cost of shipping.
1) Would you think you could find something like this down there, or better to buy it in the States and have it shipped?
2) If I do ship it, what method would you recommend? USPS Priority Mail? How long am I looking at waiting? 2-3weeks? 1 month?
