yep. def lowered, look at the forks and the rear is sitting real low. if you need help raise it back up man let me know. I have the stock rear link for that bike sitting in my garage and the forks can be raised back up without buying any parts. probably going to need a new kickstand. also does the bike have a exhaust...? lol

Your kick stand is scaring the out of me, so I really want to offer you what I think is the most helpful post I have ever put for anyone ever. You're going to need to understand some stuff now that you are the proud owner of the only thing between your life and death.

1. Don't hesitate to ask questions...people will here will readily answer you but, be ready for some really bored people at jobs that suck wasting time with dumb comments.
2. Consider your gear, do you have enough? Minimum: helmet, gloves, boots, knee guards, jacket with impact protection
2. Register with bikebandit.com so that you can research parts for your bike. Don't let the prices there scare you because...
3. eBay is another great source not only to figure out names that people call parts, but also really good deals but if you can't find it there...
4. Check out sponsors on here. We've got Motorcycles Unlimited (service) and Wild West Honda (parts and ask for Bill, then talk to him about service too)
5. You can always check back here.
6. Listen to the right people. Good luck with that one. Hopefully I'm one of them...all I have to offer for riding is just...don't pop the clutch, okay? Not worth it.
