Any other things I need? Any other caveats I should be aware of for people who have done this? Note that I'm trying to do the "no cut" method here.
To extend the bolt for the upper mount I took the bracket off the CBR's shock and ground off the welds of the bolt head to remove it. Then I bought a longer hex head bolt and nut that I fed into the bracket. I then welded the bolt head to the bracket. To make clearance for the shock you will have to grind down the bolt head. That was a real pain because the bracket interferes so much. To space the bolt I just used some round stock I had lying around.
Make sure when buying a bolt that you get a high grade bolt like 5 or 8, 8 would be best. And get a locking nut to go on top. I would suggest either a distorted thread or nylock nut.
Goodluck with youre modding! Upgrading the suspension makes a huge difference on this bike! Do note though that this will end up raising the back end of the bike slightly and make the turning a bit quicker.
