Well worth the money if you install it yourself. The local dealer wanted to charge me $230 with me providing the kit! I put 2 ratcheting tie downs on the handlebar risers and pulled the bike up from the rafters in my friend's garage. The kit doesn't have a long enough PVC to use for spacers because the Aero is supposed to have 5.75" spacers according to the instructions. I cut the stock spacers down and had to redo it cutting them again to 5.5" because at 5.75" there was too much preload causing the top of the aluminum fork lowers to be visible. If you can get the front wheel off the ground and cut the spacers to 5.5" its a great improvement over stock. I would say the nosedive on hard braking has decreased by over 50% and braking distance is slightly reduced.
