are there holes in the lower links you have now? if so, will the other hole raise or lower it? Most slot adjustable lower links have a stock location.

Plus, is the front fork tubes above the upper tree mount? if so they slid the forks to lower the front.

Finally how is the headlight aim after doing the work? correct or does it need to be adjusted? And how is the chain? Raising or lowering effects the stretch of the chain a little

If you bring it by we can look at it and see if you'll need the stock link or if the one you have can be used.

Also, was the kickstand cut?
