I'm curious as to how these links lower a bike 1&1/2 -2" without losing suspension travel ? If that is so, sort of makes me wonder why Honda doesn't do it so the L fits more customers ? Right here in link (from this co. anyway) it states that you don't lose any travel. " Lower Your Dual Sport To drop the ride height without losing any travel. " Can you lower the front a full 1&1/2 inches also ? Will tire hit? I know the method for checking but surely someone on here must know already ? http://www.performance-design.net/performance_design_suspension.htm What's this below all about, anyone run into this? Also look out for the "Brittle" type of aircraft aluminum, we know of two riders who have already paid a very high price for using links made from it. We won't mention the type here as they "proudly" list the type apparently unknowingly of what they are doing.
