SOURCE: lowering bike
would I be better off shortening the rear shock or would the Emig link or something similar be better? Would you still have full amount of travel in the rear with the link? Looks like it would just change the swingarm location to me. Any clearance issues with the rear fender on full compression? Would it balance OK with the front if travel there is reduced to 10 or so?I have an '02 LC4 that I lowered the front forks by sliding them up into the triple clamp about 3/4. I had to put a washer under the handlebar mount to get the forks up as high as I could. Since I weigh 225 plus gear I set the rear sag about 1/4 inch over what it should be. I also bought racetech springs for the front and Adventurer springs for the rear. With my weight and the lowering method I used the seat height is about 1 1/4 lower than stock at static sag. With me on it it drops about 1 1/2 to 2 lower than stock. I can reach the ground easily. I don't really need to be lower since I am 6'1 but I like to ride tight trails and prefer to be able to put my foot down even when off camber downhill. I never botton since the racetech springs do there part, and I still have full travel length.,,,

I've lowered my 1050 tiger to make it more manageable in traffic at slow speeds without compromising high speed handling, i designed a new rear linkage for the rear suspension that simply replaces the existing plates which drops the bike 30mm down measured vertically at the rear axle, I then brought the front forks up through the triple clamps and bars 10mm higher than standard, the end result is a transformed motorcycle that's quite user friendly, if i can help try me on firstname.lastname@example.org

It's a special made joint and not actually a regular bearing, so you won't be able to find a traditional bearing number. KTM or the mc aftermarket is the only place to get them.

You should be able to slide the front forks down in the tripleclamp about 2" up front. In the back you will have to buy or make lowering brackets. You might be able to modify the factory rear linkage if you take your time with it... Good luck and happy motorcycling. HDTV GURU JAY
