bought a 9, the previous owner lowered the bike not sure how much. But I am grinding away my pipes on the flat spot by my heal. almost dumped because it picked up the real wheel in the corner. If anyone lowers be careful of how you corner if you like to be aggressive in the corners. I am looking into a different pipe so I can do what I like in the twisties.

Why not replace the lowering bones with stock bones, or install air ride. If you go with air ride you will still need stock bones. You will be hard pressed to find a set of pipes that won't drag on a lowered bike if you ride aggressive in the twisties.

the good thing is he gave a lot of stuff to the dealer and I have the stock bones.

but I might try something like these.
