    Lust Racing do a 40mm drop.

    A 40mm drop at the rear will need a lot of fork movement thru the yokes to compensate. You will run out of room as the top of the forks will foul the brake hose (probably).

    Someone else may chip in on the thread but I would avoid going more than the 25mm. Perhaps a modified seat in combination may be your answer?

    As ^^^Timbo says, 25mm I found too much for the cables, I settled at 18mm after much juggling, my rear is dropped 25mm with Micks plates.

    Good luck.
