Hi All-

Just ordered a set of Motowerk's lowering blocks. Wondering if anyone here that has them has any feedback on them. Specifically I'm wondering how they affect one's ability to shift and brake/change the angle of the foot in realtion to shifter and brake. And mainly- besides giving the extra leg stretch are they comfortable to ride with?:thumb:

They are a great improvement and very well made, a lot of people use them. For me they made the brake lever feel like where it should be. Before the lowering blocks it felt too low and I had to tilt my foot down too much.
As for the shifter, I did have to adjust it down a little but it is a real easy job and took about 5 minutes.

Exactly the same in my case. Brake position is good; shifter was adjusted to my liking and it was a snap to do. Much more comfortable riding position IMHO - no more leg cramps for me! I also changed the footpegs - Kawasaki Concours pegs - larger surface area and my boots like that. :thumb:

Yep the lowering block was one of the first changes i did to my bike. Also switched to the Concours 14 foot pegs.

I've got a set on my 2010, a few of us did a group buy from Speedy to the UK. Great service, and a great mod. Love the feel now, had them nearly a year now and couldn't ride without them
