No, best way to lower your bike is to send the forks and shock to a reputable suspension shop and ask them to install spacers inside the forks and shock which will reduce the length without changing the damping. This modification is easily reversable if you decide to put the bike back to full height.

Try Enduro Engineering or Factory Connection or .... there are many others out there.

I have honda civic 1995 can anyine tell me that 15 inch rim would be suitable for the car as my country has not good roads.would 15 inch rims would damage suspension or not?

talk with a tyre dealer on this one as there are road regulations that you will have to comply with. 15 " wheels will fit your car but you will have to select a lower profile tyre to comply with regulations so you would be achieving any thing as to clearance. Discuss the matter with an "off road" shop as to suitable suspension modifications to get what you want

Need to lower my 96 triumph trophy 1200 need options

I had the same problem with my 1995 GL1500SE Goldwing. It sat to tall so I had the seat shaved right at the forward edges and had the boot maker build up another inch of sole on my riding boots. It was a lot cheaper then suspension modifications and didn't upset the geometry of the motorcycle.
Over all gain was about 2.5 inches

How can i lower the height of the bike i am on my tip toes

Only two ways you can acheive this. the first is to have your rear suspension modified, or lowered by about an inch should do it. This job would most likely have to be done at a mechanics shop. But is possible.
The second solution, involves lowering your seat height, by cutting about an inch or so of foam off the top of the seat. This job is also best done by an upholsterer, but is a possible aternative to lowering the suspension, get your seat chopped down.

Im having trouble fixing the front suspension can

This is a pritty specialist job that requires some specialist tools(compressor,rattle gun,impact sockets,etc to name a few) without them you will really struggle.Plus then theres the issue of bleeding the cartridges(i'm assuming that it has upside down forks as you dont give make model Husky mabey?)before setting the fluid levels.
My best advice is don't try this without a workshop manual & the tools I mentioned or you will struggle
Sorry I guess thats not the answer you really wanted to hear.

Lower suspension

Yes you can lower the suspension with a suspension link kit. You can find them from Yamaha or aftermarket from places like There is a slight front end lowering by moving the forks up in the tripple clamps but If I recall, the fork tubes taper so you might only get a few mm on the front.

97 range rover air suspension problem

Yes, I have worked on these for years, the airshocks get old and seep,weather cracks and wear when they get bad they will burn up the pump, there are several solutions, I have removed the air valves and put stop leak in them and been able to get an extra year out of them, your best bet is to replace the air shocks before they burn your pump up. In my opinion.
