I didn't notice a whole lot of difference in the ride. I can definitely tell it was lowered though in the turns. Just feels like it falls into the turns now.

Also can you tell me how the Buffering is after you installed the new windshield ?
It is definitely way better, I still have a little around 80 mph but it is easily tolerable. Also I am very rarely at that speed for long anyway.

I only lowered the rear and I dropped it right at 2". I may be wrong but I don't think there is a way to lower the front.

Default Lowering Problems

Nice bike! Any issues with cornering after you lowered it with dragging the bags or floorboards.
