Anyone install the 1.5" lowering brackets from Victoryonly.com on their Hammer? Im wondering if it feels like riding on a brick with the stock mono shock. Thanks in advance!

It doesnt change how the suspension feels. It lowers the center of gravity a little and makes it easier to bottom out the tire.
Agreed. Also not good for 2 up riding with the stock shock, but the bike handles better in my opinion. 2 up and you are likely to bottom out from time to time. Watch that you wiring does not get destroyed as a result

Thanks guys for the input. Today is my first day riding after the kit install. I really like the lower center of gravity! I ran all the wiring (I installed new turn signals and relocated the license plate bracket) along the inner side walls of the fender for that very reason. Also gives a much cleaner look from the back with the lower stance without the stock license plate holder and turns.

To the guy that asked if my passenger rests her head on the pad of my sissy bar... no, shes a real girl and doesnt need a back rest. I got it more for the look I like because I ride solo most of the time.

Regarding the Flamed Bullet turns, yes they have the single stud with a hole and positive wire coming thru, and it will mount where the side trim is.. however, since I added the mounting brackets for the sissy bar, it made the distance too far for that stud. I had to fabricate a bracket and mounted that in between the fender and backrest mounting bracket, that dropped them just below the fender. That also meant I had to run a new ground since the turns are grounded in the casing requiring them to normally be mounted to the frame. Hope that helps.
