Well, I went out for while today, and just rode around town, trying different things. I have done the leaning to one side when coming to a stop, and that does work, "most" of the time. If I do anything, it will be with the seat. I will either have some foam taken out of the stock seat, or maybe look for an aftermarket seat. I did figure out some one thing that was making me uneasy when coming to a stop. It may not be right, but it helped me. When coming to a stop sign, or an intersection, and don't have to come to a complete stop, I don't down shift all the way to 1st gear. I have noticed that the gearing on the 1800 is a little different then the 1500. I don't know how to explain it, other then 1st gear on the 1800, is geared lower? I can't stay in 1st very long at all, other wise it gets real jerky. If I am coming to a complete stop, I am going to work on the leaning to the left, until I am completely stopped.
