Speedy's Lowering of a 2010

I don't know if anyone has lowered a 2010 before me, but I just did and it went very well. Lowered the front & rear per his instructions and installed the flat foot.

The flat foots for the 2010's are available now at Speedy's website. I am very happy with his product and super fast shipping! Thanks Speedy!

The only thing that I must mention... the lack of any instructions to check the chain tension after lower. My chain slack got very snug maybe 1/8" slop per the instructions in the manuals. It was 1" before I began. I adjusted the chain slack out to 1" per the maintenance manual and took her for a spin.

The bike fits me better now (30" inseam).

Very satisfied.

Figured everyone has seen the pics of the lowering kit installed. They are on Speedy's website under gallery. Doesn't look any different on the 2010. If you want to see some, I can take some tomorrow and post them. The big difference is that Speedy just started shipping the flatfoot for the kickstand. The 2010 has a different kickstand.
