I was wondering who has the biggest lowering kit on the rear? All I have been able to find is 1 1/2 inches. I already drag with stock so I was wondering if anything lower than 1 1/2 inches is to much.
You shouldn't be burning harness' if you moved it correctly.my 8 ball is lowered 1.5" I have already burned through two rear harnesses. I have tried moving it to the side, but still didnt work. However, the second time it rubbed through, i was doing two up riding. So, i ordered my third wiring harness and the stock ride height suspension brackets. I bought the bike with the lowering kit installed and do not care for it anymore. im sure if you dont plan on doing any two up riding, it would be good for you. but make sure you move the harness and check your clearance before cruising. you also loose alot of corning speed as you will scrape from and pegs. in my opinion its not worth it. if you would like my old lowering brackets, shoot me a pm and ill send them to you.cheers
Alright I went three inches. Looks great still need to grind on the belt guard. So its removed for now. Heres my next question how much should I adjust the preload on my rear shock for me and a passenger we will say 325-350 lbs max on that. I only weigh 150 and I figure better be safe than rub.
Ok I just put 3 pics up in my album. I love the way it looks but I still have stock exhaust. BIG issue there when I corner I scrape the bottom of my exhaust and also my kick stand. Also I noticed after lowering if I move my wheel to the right it will try to fall over that way. I also stiffened up the suspension 5 full turns which eliminated the bottoming out issue I was having. Like I said it looks great but doesn't seem to be practical. I found a 1.5" lowering kit and am going to try it out next.
