I used the Baron's rear kit also and did them both at the same time. I don't bottom out and the ride is fine. On a recommendation I refilled the fork legs with 10wt fork fluid instead of the stock 5wt. The ride is a little stiff with the 10wt. I'll probably change the fork fluid to 7wt, but I'll wait to do more riding in hotter weather just to make sure. The kit was easy to install but the operation can be somewhat messy if you are not careful as you are dealing with fork fluid. I did not remove the fork legs to install the kit. Removing the damping rods from the legs was easy with use of a straightened coat hanger with a hooked end (after the damping rod retaining/drain plug bolts are removed of course. The short lowering spacers come precut but the long top spacers need to be cut to the recommended length. I used a pipe cutter from Home Depot to make a perfect cut. This is your Roadstar don't get cheap and use a hacksaw. I find that the ride is plenty stiff with the spacer...

Actually did my own front end lowering for zero cost ($0). Made spacers from aluminum tubing 1.5" long (to get that much lower), and shortened the stock spring. Looks wonderful with the rear lowered too - long, low street cruiser! I was worried that I would need the Baron's shorty kickstand, but the stock one works fine.

Way2fst4u is a Top 10 Reviewer Very easy to install...be careful when you use the pipe cutter to cut the spacers. If you tighten it too much, it will just dent the aluminum pipe.
