Make sure to use red loctite on the bolts of the extensions. You're going to need a chain tool, to break the old and install the new chain. A flatjack can really help when lowering the bike. When you're doing the front make sure to measure each fork tube and raise them evenly. As for the rear, the middle setting on the links will probably be good if you still want to street ride and carry a passenger.

True that, you will also need a shorter kickstand. Either cut yours or buy a shorter one.
