i seen about 20 threads about lowring the bike. yes, it ruins the handling. no i dont want to lower the bike. but its my girls 08 r6. shes 5'3 sooo....yeah.

were getting 2 inch links cause i would not let her get the 3 inch. thats just to much.

my question is, how do i lower the front to keep the same (as much as possible) bike geometry?

I measured the bottom of my lower fairing under the bike, front and back. Once I put the lowering link on measured it again and adjusted the front to keep the distance the same. I lowered mine 2 inches it's great no problems.

i lowered mine yesterday, becarefull doing the front, i would suggest loosening all the bolts on one side first, starting at the bottom, ad then leave the very top one last, lossen it a little until it falls some, and then tighten the top bolt until you get the height you want, and then do the other side the same until they are even.

If someone can't get used to a bike's height, they probably shouldn't be riding one of the fastest supersport middleweights on the market. Get her a ninja 250 and pocket the money difference.

its not about getting used to a bike height. its being able to stop at red lights and stop signs and not fall over.

she already has the 08 R6.

the question was answered, leave it alone...
