Hey gang. Just wanted to see who if any have used the Witchdoctors lowering link? I am in need of dropping a inch or so to get feet flat on ground when stopped. I also noticed an adjustable version on e-bay, kinda liking the adjustable just for simple reason of being able to change without buying another link if first is too short or not enough. Before and after pics would be great if anyone has also, all manufacturers show is the link itself. Thanks for your input.

I lowered my x roads with the witchdoctor 1" lowering link. Pictures really won't help as it is hard to tell with only using the 1" lowering link. If I had to do it again I would go for the 1 1/2, then when I ride 2 up I would just put a little more air in the suspension. Very easy to change and witchdoctor has a video.

I'd jump all over a lowering kit for the high-ball as compared to a softail it's a breeze but I worry about the horror stories of bottoming the tire and ripping out the wire harness. And also stories of belt guard rubbing. May not be such an issue on the tour bikes.

Why would you take the 1 1/2" drop over the 1"? Is it simply because of a short inseam or for looks? What is your inseam/overall hieght? Just curious in case I decide to drop one day. Any info would be appreciated.

I also used witchdoctors 1" lowering and if I was to do it again I also would have gone with the 1 1/2" rod.

Same thing as above; inseam, looks, etc.

The reason, I would go to the 1 1/2 drop is because of my 29" inseam. The one inch is great but the addition 1/2" would be better.
Why not go with the adjustable to begin with, and have the option to raise or lower at your preference. Some don't lower because of need, as much as desired look of the bike lower to ground. Get an adjustable and be done with it, as far as getting a different link, if your not satisfied with the first height adjustment. All adjustments can be made by only removing right side cover, and a pair wrenchs, and a few minutes. thumb up

One thing i found after lowering mine is my belt got real tight. As of now i have it lowered 1" and i readjusted my belt using vic specs and it seems good. I asked witchdoctor if they readjust after lowering and he said no.

Dropped 2" due to inseam. Need extra air in shock for 2 up or aggressive turns, otherwise fine. Watch the pipes though going over big dips like a gutter.
