I saw a 3 inch lowering kit for sale for a Victory.. Anyone try this that also has pictures:confused?
Spat on, on statement 2 & 3. Your last paragraph not so much. I'm lowered 3", I've NEVER posed at hippy ass starbucks, never trailered my bike anywhere, bar hop HELL YEAH! I also ride back and forth to work each morning, down to Austin the weekends, and lets not mention the club rides I do as well. Maybe my ass and back are made of iron maybe I have buns of steel but the ride is not bad, its still the most comfortable bike I've ever ridden.1) Welcome to the forum
2) Wrong forum. This is for the bike of the month contest
3) If you lower 3" I sincerely hope you live in an area of the country like Florida where all the roads are flat and straight. VERY straight. Because you ain't turning that bike. Even long sweepers like freeway onramps, you'll be doing half the speed that you should be.
You're also upsetting the suspension geometry. Engineers who study for years designed your suspension for your bike to operate safely, at speed, during turns. You go as far as 3" lower and the entire configuration is out of whack for the bike and this can cause problems if you're really a rider. If you pose at Starbucks, trailer your bike to Bike Week, or only bar hop... you'll be ok, but if you actually ride, 3" is absurd.
It looks cool, but it isn't the best mod you can do in my humble opinion.
Thanks but I'm looking to modify my wife's jackpot, my cross country is on sale at the moment but if it doesn't sell where can I find those apesI have the Heavy Metal Designz 2" - 3" lowering kit on mine, and the bike needed NO mods to install, unlike prev. posts state. Mine is set @ 3" in my pics. The switch from 2" to 3" is only about a 5 min. job, too! They also make/sell an air ride system. Both are at hmd520.com. Here's the air ride: http://youtu.be/5aBWpgz6mXk See my pics here: http://www.victoryforums.com/garage.php?do=viewvehicle&vehicle_id=1254
