I did it on me ST955 & ST1050, easier 2nd time with decent size strong circlip pliers. First time I struggled with some snipe nose pliers, not good when they work wrong way. I wasn't expecting a circlip that strong. If that flies it could yer head off.

Well first proper ride out after fitting the LUST lowering kit. What a difference, mainly the lower C of G giving me confidence at junctions and filtering. Easy to fit, and greased the bushes at the same time. Just want some warm dry roads to check clearance.

Hi,
I bought a lowering kit plates TRW MCTL 171. It should be lower about 30 mm. Unfortunately Tiger went down only about 10 mm.

I just looked up that number, they look same hole spacing to stock. Did you not look at the ones I found you? Or you could do a swap with the boy who's looking for stock size on another thread.

Or use these.

I think that then are the same, but thanks.
Have You heard something about that solution which I wrote earlier?
And I bought a different seat (OEM), will see.
