Lowering kit
« on: March 19, 2016, 07:54:06 pm »
Has anyone fitted a Lust Racing lowering kit? I'm a short-arse and although I've already got the low seat fitted I could do with lowering the bike a bit further.
I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks

Hi El Hmbro,

I haven't fittted one of these myself , but can advise you that the Forum has an excellent
button !

Just type "Lust" into the Search box and you will get 125 results !

If you still can't find the information and advice you are lookiing for,
just come back and post a more specific question  :028:

Cheers  :821:

I have, lowered it by 25mm, left front forks alone. No difference at all in handling IMHO. Was well worth it. If you do the math, the difference in rake is 1/2 of 1 degree by leaving the front forks alone. This is really nothing. You get a much greater aspect change from simply adding luggage or a pillion.

I fitted the Lust Racing lowering kit, but I didn't touch the forks. I haven't noticed any real change in handling characteristics, but lowering the bike has given me much more confidence - I'm enjoying riding it much more now.

I lowered mine with lust links and found I  preferred  it with forks dropped 18mm which is easy to do. I took them off to sell bike and you can have them for £40 posted versus £65 from lust racing. Pm me if interested.

Yes i had fitted the complete lowering kit to my se 2013 but the bike is now sold, but i do have all the items for sale as a complete set. i can hear you saying what lowering kit.
Lust lowering wish bones, hand made lower foot pegs and the main stand which i had the height reduced to help putting my bike on it's stand. and yes it cost me a bit.
