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

Just bought a 2008 yamaha r1 and want pictures to show best way to lower it 1.5 inches


I'm 5'2", lowered the bike 1.5" all around, and added a 70 series tire to the front. I was worried the bike wasn't going to handle very well and I am a pretty new rider so I had a friend ride it (he's been riding for 10+ years) and he said it feel pretty good.

With this setting I can get my toes on the ground on both sides, enough to keep the bike balanced on just about any road. If you want to lower the bike I would HIGHLY recommend trying a smaller seat or at least combine it with a smaller drop (since you are an inch shorter maybe a seat and the 1.5" drop will work...all depends on how long your legs are).

Here is the rear link I used: 1?mpt=1048020842&adtype=1&size=1x1&type=3&campid=5336105921&toolid=10001 LINK

And the front I just lowered the triple tree down the forks. Don't forget that if you do lower it you'll need to either modify the kickstand or buy an adjustable one.

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

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

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.
