    I have a 25 mm kit itís the two plates on the bottom of the rear shock. I removed it because the brackets of the Ventura rack hit the rear hugger and swing arm. Be cautious if you have a Ventura rack.

    I have used Mick's lowering plates https://www.squaredeals-ltd.co.uk/tiger-1050sesport-stainless-steel-suspension-lowering-plates-1-pair-25mm1-inch-lower-5864-p.asp
    and the plates from Lust Racing http://www.lustracing.co.uk/suspension/triumph-tiger-1050-lowering-kits.html.
    A Torx T55 bit is needed. Support the rear wheel before removal of the bolts. Inspect and grease the link needle bearings is good practice.
    And don't forget to search this forum for more info  :152:

    I have a 2018 sport and I fitted 25mm lowering kit. Sorry I cannot remember the company I bought the kit from. The shop is located on the Sunshine Coast. From memory I Googled "lowering kit for Tiger Sport Qld" and they posted the part out to me. Sorry I cannot be more specific.
    if you have a centre stand and a car jack the process is relatively simple.
    Hope this helps.

    I've considered lowering plates myself, but know can tell me how the altered linkage ratio will affect my rear suspension?

    $40 plus postage is a very good price.

    I lowered the rear by 25mm and dropped the forks 17mm. After 40K I have not noticed any ill effects to the handling. A friend, with 2015 Sport, and I swapped bikes a few months ago. We rode for few hundred Km over open and twisty roads and neither of us could feel any difference in the handling between the bikes.
    Naturally, as my bike is silver and his is red mine was faster. :164:

    Only problem I had was with the brackets for Ventura rack, when I hit a big bump and the brackets hit rear hugger and cracked it. Everything else was fine completely the same as standard

    Makes it weaker, not noticeable until pillion gets onboard. Need wack up pre-load, didn't need to before fitting the lowering plates.

    Thank you Sir, this is the  feedback I've been after. I'm already borderline with being able to achieve the correct sag figures, so plan on doing a spring upgrade when fitting the lowering plates.
    Now I know I need to add a bit more spring rate to compensate for the plates.
