Lowering The Frame
« on: July 10, 2014, 08:34:51 pm »
I have heard that there is a modification to lower the frame by approx., 2 inches, (I am on my tip toes) has anyone had this mod carried out, and did it affect cornering and general handling?

https://www.triumph-trophy.com/index.php/topic,2641.msg34796.html#msg34796  is a thread on this very subject.   I have the Lust Racing links and have lowered the front 14mm as stated, and it helps a lot for those of us with short inseams.   I have the low seat, and I actually find in more comfortable than the standard comfort seat anyway....

what is this "Lower Seat" that you mention?  also when you had the frame lowered, was any modifications carried out to the center  and side stands?

The lower seat is the one on your Canadian TTSE.
