down 1.5 cm height
« on: May 20, 2013, 05:21:43 PM »
although I measure 1.80, by the way I sit on the bike, my legs match the pegs, so it came with the toes down.
So I decided to lower the height of the bike, I have the high seat, which comes with the bike in Europe.
To lower the height of the bike change the rods that hold the rocker and the damper.

the rods arrived today, I was going to put Manu in vigo, but as it could not wait any longer locate, I put them.
They arrived today at 1 and three (One had to eat before) are placed, seems incredible, what he was up more war front bars, but good.

the original rods are 130mm between centers of holes, as Jaume I asked are about 140mm between centers and 145mm holes (these made ​​me the gift), just put the 140, the bike back down to 75.5 mm 74mm, an inch and a half.
In low front mirrors 98 to 97.5 mm, all more or less that was holding the crowbar against my foot to have it centered more or less, (is it bad to do a solo, I planned to go to workshop but eventually I came the rush), so in the subi bars only 5mm

not if the bars would have to climb the centimeter and a half low back or really low in front that are only 5mm, so it seemed more logical to me were only those 5mm.

Uun few laps at home, turn around on a one-lane street, a couple of horses (to check that the screws had left the bar).

Printing, go to the absence of any road, maybe it's the placebo effect, a bit more agile steering the bike but a tad harder.

Thank you (Gracias) for the write-up of lowering your bike. I am interested in hearing how it feels when you ride it. Also if you hit the foot pegs in sharp corners.

Hola Miss,

I assume you had to remove the muffler ( last part of the exhaust) to install the lowering kit.
My questions:
- Was the muffler easy to remove and reassemble?
- Did you use exhaust assembly paste ?
