...and when you do it, do it in stages. I find that gives the best satisfaction. I would add in a DNA air filter, makes slow speed ride much better, and less jerking.
If you can handle the V w/o adding in the lowering kit, that I think would be the best, leaving it stock. Lowering the bike requires the bike kick stand to be shorten, front shocks adjusted, besides adding the lowering kit for the mono. But if you encounter heavy traffic on uneven roads and shoulders, then it would feel better and more secure with a lowered bike. However, with the V, I keep an eye on the road conditions more, and avoid being in a situation where my feet can't touch the road. Was riding the Ninja 250R which was way lower prior to the V. My legs with full outstretched would only flat foot on the road on the V. But some times I tip toe a little so that I dun fully stretch my legs. The V is pretty well balanced even with a passenger on it and it doesn't affect my riding unlike the Ninja 250R which is not designed for a passenger.
