depends on the roads you ride.... it's pretty easy to put shocks back on it. If you get a set of Burley's you can keep it nice and low too

Question, is the jetting necessary because of the sprocket mod, or because of the muffler mod/change, or both?

Sprocket change: No, just need to feather the clutch more
Muffler mod/change: Mine came with cobra slash cuts, stock air box and stock jets.
. Just had to turn the idle screws out a bit

^ you realize that the idle screw adjusts fuel flow somewhat up to mid throttle, right.... So your bike could run lean at WOT

Yes, and I base my adjustments off of this chart

I will attest to this being possibly the best modification that can possibly be done to a shadow. I have a 2005 Spirit (42 tooth) and swapped it for the 38 tooth and a new x-ring chain. The difference is night and day. Now at 80 it sounds like 50, I sometimes forget about 5th gear when cruising at 55. The 4* timing mod is not a necessity but it is nice for the increased pick me up. And the clutch spring replacement to the stronger springs: I would say it depends. I have spoken with several shadow riders who have done this mod, about 80% would agree if you go below 39 teeth you need new stiffer springs. I tooled around a bit yesterday after the replacement and the clutch slipped once. That was actually enough to convince me. New springs installed. No more slipping. Now... to get rid of the lunchbox....

I have done the 38T mod and have not changed my springs. I have yet to feel clutch slippage but have the Barnett springs on hand if I do.
