Lowering forks/links


Recommended Posts

Hi All

Has anyone safley lowered the forks down to the brushed markers on the legs and hand any clearance issues? My genuine lowering links (18mm) came today and I'm investigating the clearance of the front wheel after lowering the forks 18mm

Thinking I may have to lower the front fender down again to lowest setting? Any input from others who have done this?

Anyone have any issues with the kick stand after a 18mm drop?

I used the Rally Raid 20mm lowering links and dropped the fork tubes 15cm. No issues with fender clearance. The bike sits fine on the sidestand unladen, but if I get on the bike with the stand down and put my weight on it, I can't get the stand up unless I lean the bike a long way to the right. The other day I was on a dirt road and my foot slipped in the mud and I had my first drop while leaning the bike over to get the stand up.
