Default Lowering

Has anyone installed the front/back air ride on their Vision? Or tried an adjustable lowering link? Any pros or cons? Thanks for any response.

Hey
The air ride is harsh and stiff. You will feel every bump and pot hole.

Buy the adjustable link spacers to drop the front end and a short kick stand. Keep a good 40psi in your shock for starting point. Less you will bottom out on some rail road crossings. Then you will have a crack on your inside bag that you can repair with fiber glass or a two part glue.
In my mind if you drop the rear one inch you have to drop the front one inch.
You need a lift to get the rear wheel pulled. There is a plastic cover on the inside of the rear fender you have to pull. You have to pull the seat and the two side covers under the seat. You do not have to unbolt the shock just the link.
There are two screws on either side of the pivot shaft. Pull the front one and from the rear push the pivot shaft out to wards the front. Un bolt old link put in new link. Grease the hell out of the pivot shaft before putting it back in.
Its a good four hour job.

Dropping the front really helps with turbulence from semis and vans. I have always felt the front end was up to high
