This thread was clouded by the recently found instability issue found at the rear end of my bike. After running the bike with the problem resolved, In my opinion, GET ONE ,YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!!, at least I do. It's the best upgrade for the money you could do for your C-5. If you like the sharper slow speed handleing of the eighteen, then don't get it. But I think the ninteen is a better all around handler.Dan.
Negatives:Center stand. Not a biggy at all,but it is more difficult to get the bike on and off the center stand.
