Speedy Lowering Kit
I intended to have my mechanic install the kit Tuesday, but when a bit of rain blew our way, I thought, "I built an airplane, I think I can handle this." It went very quickly, without incident. To jack the bike up, I think I came up with a simple method. I had one car jack, but not two. So I put a box under the non-kickstand side and then simply jacked up the kick-stand side (left). That raised the rear wheel well off the ground, allowing me to make the modification. I did overshoot dropping the front end, which is quite easy to do. My recommendation to avoid this is keep a slight amount of bolt tension on one of the lower fork bolts and then using a rubber mallet, tap the fork brace down. After I dropped it too far, it required hoisting the front end up in the garage to reposition it.
I finished it this morning and went on a 60 mile ride with my wife. What a difference, being able to support the bike when stopped. I have a 30" inseam and now the bike feels like it was custom built. I'd also highly recommend the mirror extenders and front peg extensions from Speedy. No further mods intended, other than a windshield.
