:clap2: I just wanted to say that :joke: But I did finally get my shipment I ordered Friday before last. 2" Cycle House bones.
A sportbike has greater clearance for starters. A stock 9 has less clearance and adding bones to lower it will decrease the clearance even further. You do the math.I still need feedback on lowering. Some guys have said the bike handles fine, lowered, but how aggressive were they riding beforehand? I scrape pegs on a regular basis, is lowering going to make it way worse? Anywho, post pics!
Screw it, I'm just going to have to buy the air ride! :evil:A sportbike has greater clearance for starters. A stock 9 has less clearance and adding bones to lower it will decrease the clearance even further. You do the math.
It all depends on how aggressive you take the sharper corners. Sweepers are no problem. That being said, I like to think that I ride fairly aggressively and haven't had a problem, but I know to take it easy when turning corners at lights. This isn't a sportbike, so if you are trying to scrape knees on corners, you would find lowering is a problem.
2" at the rear is a little less than 3/4" at the pegs. It's easy to find out how much it drops at the pegs, just measure the wheel base then measure the distance from the front axle back to the pegs. Then divide the two. The pegs are about 1/3 of the way back, so they lower roughly 1/3 as much as you drop it.I'm just curious how much lower it is at the pegs is all. Lowering the back end, it would kind of pivot from the front. Has anyone measured the difference. I love the look too, every time I look at pics of my bike all I can think is the ass needs to be lower!
