    How to UN-CG my XB12 SCG



    Members don't see the above ad. Register now - it's free!
    Hello all, new Bueller here, long time creeper (of this forum, that is). So I finally got around to buying an XB12... I

    wanted an all black xb12S but I ended up getting the SCG. Im really regretting getting the low version, I find it very

    cramped and Im only 5'7", this seat is the worst, my junk is all jammed up against the "tank". Now it

    already has drop pegs on it, but im not looking for band aid fixes and im just going to convert it to a regular S.

    From what ive read i know i need:

    -Front forks from a S
    -Rear shock with the BLUE spring
    -Regular S seat

    What I am unsure about is if the subframe is the same(since from pictures the regular S subframe seems to point higher in

    the air). And I remember reading somewhere that the swingarm is different(that doesnt make sense to me, that would cost way

    to much for a small company to do that)

    So I am going to take some measurements against my friends XB9(city?) and see what that teaches me.

    I will be getting rid of my BLACK SCG forks and rear shock if anyone is interested in a trade or wants to buy

    them.

    Dont mean to be a debbie downer on my first post, just want to get the ball rolling on the information i need and possible

    contacts for parts.

    Thanks in advance

    If you go in that direction dont forget the longer kick stand. Most folks go in the other direction, Guys will want you SCG parts. Go with a seat first and see how it feels you might find it doable. I had a SCG I went with the seat only I am 6'. My boys were happy.lol

    I would be interested in your SCG parts.

    I'm 5'7" and find my SCG to be perfect for me. The normal height is too tall in my opinion. Also, I find the SCG seat to be more comfortable, being that is hugs you better, the S seat is more flat and will create more pressure points.

    This is the cost for the best looking motorcycle.

    The tail is way too low and looks wrong to me, i like the UK streetfighter look where the tail is the highest point, followed by the tank and ending at the handlebars. just like your avatar. ill post pics of the bike soon...

    What are the black scg parts worth? ive been scouring the internet and cant find black forks anywhere.
