The JP strut diameter is larger that the original (I ordered struts before ordering the set) so you have to drill the trunions. Also the stock struts did not have a heavy enough spring. That's why I...

Congrats on the maiden. It's been cold here in Ohio.

It handles the weight of my install just fine but from what Bob_b has said and flying mine I think a 45 would be very good. A friend has one and I believe he has decided on the 45 as well.
