Did the seat height raise with the mods?
I love it!
Scout is almost too low for me!
Yes, a pretty good amount. The regular scout shocks are longer than the bobber, and since the K-Tech shocks were designed for the scout, it raised it up a small amount. The 180 tire is 3/8” taller in dia, which makes it 3/16” taller off the ground.

Can you tell me what width your rear wheel is? Im considering doing the same but ive read a 180 on a 3.5" rim isn't recommended and a 180 on a 5.5" rim wont fit under the fender/sub frame
