On board in southeast Virginia, USA

Greetings!
Got my 1st Kawasaki last month. A 2018 Versys-X 300.
Been motorcycling since I was eleven and that was in 1968.
Stand by for a second post,
...Chip G.

Found this excellent forum and plan to use it for my KLE300 education.
I purchased the bike used and it has Motowerk lowering dog bones (tie rods) on it. The original owner still had the original ones and was kind enough to give them to me. That is today's project... re-install stock dog bones.

Howdy.

There is likely a market for that lowering kit here, just sayin'.

Also, verify the correct height for the fork tubes. They were likely raised to match up with the lowered rear suspension.

Full member soon? Good.
I will offer the Motowerk lowering dog bones along with a shorter side stand to the X300 community.
And yes SteveJ, I did re-adjust the front forks to 4mm from 19 mm. You know your stuff.

Don't hold your breath, it takes 5 to 10 tries to get things done, as many offices are closed.
