    Looks like they see some spare change in your pocket and want it really bad...

    i just looked at the bones at DLP it says something about using the bushings out of the stock bones? havnt seen anything said about this? will they just slide out or must they be pressed out of the stock bones? thanks guys in advance.

    Installed the 2 inch from DLP using this tutorial (much easier ) Bike looks great and handles like a dream. Peg scrape is a concern but I just have to relearn my limits

    Do you have to remove the Exhaust pipes to install the right side bone?

    You pay for my round trip airfare, provide the tools and bones, and a 6-pack of my favorite brewsky, and I'll do it...


    Seriously, it's not hard to do... Grab a wrench and have some fun working on your bike...

    wait guys more length equals more drop. so if i have the adjustable bones from raw design and i want to lower it more i would need to exstanted them instead of pulling the m in. and what would you guys recommend. should take the bones off completely or just let one end hang down and the exstented them out

    As you can see in this pic, which I specifically show to indicate the difference between stock and aftermarket. A difference of extending about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch will produce as much as 2.5 inch drop. I don't know what the Raw Design bones allow you in incremental drop. You will have to play with them to determine what you want.

    OR

    You could call DLP and ask Hal or Lamont the specific hole to hole measurement of their 2, 2.5 inch drop bones and set yours accordingly.

    Hello all, I had a question for BigpappaM109.
    I am going to do a lot of work on the back of the bike so I wanted to know what you think about the Raw designs Bones as I might have to change the height more than once? Is this product going to be weaker since it is not a one piece design, what do you think?

    Could you please measure your aftermarket bones and tell me what the distance is between the two holes. I would like to fabricate some bones for a 2-2.5 inch lowering job.

    I have these bones and they work great. Somewhat easy easy to adjust aswell.

    Does anybody can tell me what is the exactly distance(in cm not in inch)between that new (lower) bone's holes...I want to try make them by my
    self...
    And if this bone is even smaller so the drop will be bigger,or what? How low it can be?
