How much can I lower a 2013 street glide?


Anything much lower than an inch and a half, the ride quality suffers bad! Put a lowering kit in the front forks and use shorter shocks in the rear. DO NOT install any type of aftermarket kit that moves the rear shock mount rearward. If the bike still isn't low enough, check into purchasing a thinner seat. Good luck!

Feet do not touch flat on the ground. Need to lower ride height by a couple or few inches


The ride height is determined by a couple of things, the suspension and the seat. If you can, try to find a different seat because lowering the bike effects the handling characteristics so much. Anytime you lower a bike, you reduce the "lean angle" which hampers you when you make turns. If you can't find a lower saddle, you can lower the bike. It depends on what year and model bike it you have. You didn't say. There are companies that make lowering kits for most bikes. Progressive is one of the more popular companies.

Good Luck

I have a 2006 suzuki c 50 i want to know if the rear shock can be adjusted to make the bike lower thanks


The C50 can be lowered, but not by adjusting the shock.
Adjusting the shock only stiffens or softens the ride.

To lower the Suzuki Vl800 (C50), you will need to purchase a lowering kit, which consists of a new set of "lowering bones" (so named because they are shaped like dog bones).

You will need to remove the stock bones from the shock, and replace them with the new bone from the kit. You can buy kits on eBay that will lower your bike 1 to 3 inches.

Im 5'7 at 175lb & will soon own an 08 KTM 530 EXC-R street legal version it sits way to tall for me, what can I do to lower without taking to much away from performance but atleast have two feet on the...


You need to work with a suspension specialist shop to lower your bike. They can take apart the forks and shock and install spacers to limit the travel and make the bike lower. This mod is easily removed in the future if you decide to sell the bike etc.

Try Enduro Engineering or Pro Action There are other local shops that do suspension work... ask around at local shops and the KTM dealer etc.

Lower 2008 triumph rocket touring?


You need a rear suspension lowering kit, made in UK for loadsa different bikes
These are available from 1 of my wholesale suppliers
Contact me for more information

The other ways (smaller back wheel &/or smaller & stronger shocks) are trial & error which usually ends in bigger problems

NEED TO LOWER MY 2201 R6


lowering links are attatched to the bottom of your suspension linkage. you should see to similar looking bars with holes at each end, under the shock. you'll need to support the bike properly to remove them. then put the new were the old ones were. (they ahould be shorter therefore lowering it)

I have a suzuki 125 that needs to be lowered.


You can't do much to lower the bike. The expense involved to lower the bike would be about the same as buying a used, smaller bike. If he is close to tall enough you may be able to take the seat and have it made narrower, that will make it a bit easier to reach the ground. If you have your heart set on lowering this bike, look for either a shorter rear shock absorber or a lowering link.
