Default Where to buy lowering kits

I have decided on 1" or at most 1.5" lowering links, searched the do's and dont's with the harness and so on.

I am in the UK so no dealers sell them here, any advice on who to buy from and what makes appreciated, also if anyone knows who ships to the UK?

Thanks

I'm pretty sure that Will of Cycleops gives Victory Forum members a discount. You might want to call him first.

Question

Ok - bike lift ordered, lowering links ordered -

I have looked at the harness but the strut is tight to the fender so I don't see how to attach the harness to it.

The Vegas fender is narrow and relocating the harness to the side looks just as vulnerable, any help appreciated???

Ok after some more research I was right, you cant tuck the Vegas harness to the strut, no clearance. Witchdoctor sells a fender liner to cover the harness, it is cheap if you are the US! Not for us though....

You don't have to tuck it just pull it to the side and zip tie it. I've done this to countless Kingpins and Vegas'.

What you are trying to do is keep the wheel from snagging it if you bottom out. Zip tie it to the side fender rails and you will be ok. The only thing required is time and zip ties.
