I am trying to decide on how far to lower my bike. I could really use the help of our community here. If you have lowered your 9 and have a good side view, would really appreciate a posted picture and description of which length of bone that you used. Also, any comments on whether you would have gone lower or not as low, now that you have done the project.

Thanks, Dave

georgiaroller has the 1 1/2 bones and he rides the heck out of his bike 2 up or solo. If I wasn't getting airride I think that would be the way to go.:bigthumbsup:

be sure to grind the bolts that stick thru the fender or your tire will pay dearly!!

Did any of you stiffen up your suspension settings to help off set hitting a bid old bump and having your rear end slap the tire? Or is that even a concern?

Great photos by the way.

Well that depends what type o rider you are. I set mine at 6 after a big ol bump, and bottoming out, stock is 4, but if one is not riding twisties or in need of the stiffeness, it will pound your back, I set mine to 3 for normal driving and remember that, if I find some good road for fun, LOL All a compromise......3 really makes normal cruising real nice......
