First mod to the new bike: lowering. Requesting input from the experts.
I was going to reply to a recent thread on lowering but I don't have enough posts to do so (I'd link to said thread but I'm not allowed to do that either), thus the new thread.
So the wife is loving the new Versys and it's got her all excited to ride again. This is huge for us, because it's been a couple years off of two wheels for her. After a fantastic day on an 850 lb 2015 Road Glide Special rental that she was handling like a champ, at the very end of the day after pulling into our crazy steep driveway that ends in an abrupt 90-degree turn, she dropped it and incurred a couple thousand bucks in damages (the dealership didn't offer insurance, believe it or not, so it was all on us). It freaked her out to the point of walking away from riding completely. Until now.
Like I said, she LOVES the Versys. But it's a tad too tall for her to feel totally confident on it while not moving, and especially when backing up. Hell, I'm 5'11" and it's a little precarious for me when backing up when the ground is slick. So question is, is the MotoWerk lowering kit the best option? And this will also mean adjusting the front shocks and shortening the kickstand. Anything else that needs consideration? Any other thoughts on lowering?
Thanks in advance!
