Lowering Kit
on: 05 July, 2021, 11:41:50 AM
Hi,

Looking for a bit of advice regarding fitting a suspension lowering kit..

I know you need to shim the side stand once this is done to achieve the original angle, but how will this affect the centre stand and is there a mod for this too? :084:

Thanks

Beezer

No CTR stand mod unfortunately,
It's a case of extra effort to get her up! If you only use it in the garage roll rear onto a piece timber before using it, only other option is to have it cut down

Some guys manage but I imagine it is a bit of an effort,
ask as there maybe someone out there with a shortened ctr stand

 Had mine lowered by 25mm , the trick to getting it on the center stand , is to pull up and back on the footpeg hangar , easy peasy

Thanks folks,

I'm  clearly a  short erse!  :034:(30 inside leg! ) got the same issue with my Ninja 1000sx, but after lowering her 30mm, can almost flat foot now.. :028:

Think It'll be the same with the Tiger...maybe need to lookout for a pair of built-up platform Alpinastar boots! ha ha  :012:

25mm will be fine, I am 29 inside leg and I tried a bike with 25mm lowering plates which made a big difference and I think the later Sport is lower or narrower to start with.
