Wow Lia, sounds like you are heading in really good direction with your 88.

I have done most of those mods. Brakes and suspension make such a difference. I have PM brakes front and rear.
The Ricoh Intiminators really improve the feel of the front. Maybe treat your bike to some new Timken steering bearings
when you strip the forks - if you haven't already. The Zipper trap door makes a big difference; just keep an eye on any
clutch basket wobble until you get round to installing it.

I have been in Italy for a while so just getting back to riding my 88. I need new tyres and tomorrow I am fitting Bridgestone Battlecruise.
A newish tyre that I am curious to see how they work handling-wise.

Happy riding!
