Re: Lowering links

Lowering the bike an inch or so front and rear typically won't affect handling too much on the street if you maintain the same front and rear geometry. If lowering the bike will make you feel more comfortable / confident on the bike, than there is nothing wrong with it, as long as it is done in moderation and not to extremes.

Re: Lowering links

I agree. I would like to lower mine just a little so my girl can touch.

Re: Lowering links

Stephen,
You can lower an R6 about an inch with no problems. Any more than that and the front fender will smack the lower triple tree at full travel.
